God grant me the serenity not to comment on the shoes.
This morning, Mrs. Trump boarded Air Force One wearing a pair of towering pointy-toed snakeskin heels better suited to a shopping afternoon on Madison Avenue or a girls’ luncheon at La Grenouille.
Journalists covering President Donald Trump’s visit to the state seemed most concerned, First Lady-wise, with her footwear. The sight of Melania leaving the White House Tuesday morning, headed to Texas wearing heels was enough to get the media abuzz.
“First Lady Melania Trump Sticks to Stilettos as She Leaves White House for Flood-Ravaged Texas” marveled People magazine.
A spokesperson says she has other shoes to change into on the plane—and one sincerely hopes there is a pair of leopard-print Wellies-in-waiting to get her from the tarmac to the limo. But what kind of message does a fly-in visit from a First Lady in sky-high stilettos send to those suffering the enormous hardship, the devastation of this natural disaster?
Melania pulled a fast one, changing into sensible sneakers during the flight, which must have made the footwear fetish-ed reporters feeling foolish.
