On Tuesday, Vogue magazine contributing editor Lynn Yaeger took superficial swipes at First Lady Melania Trump in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.
Yaeger, an alleged fashion expert, was disturbed by the "Hurricane Stilettos" Mrs. Trump wore on her way to help the victims of Houston, though Yaeger herself begrudgingly admitted the First Lady would change into sneakers when she touched down in the ravaged state.
"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," whined Yaeger.
"While the nation is riveted by images of thousands of Texans wading with their possessions, their pets, their kids, in chest-high water, desperately seeking refuge; while a government official recommend that those who insist on sheltering in place write their names and social security numbers on their arms, Melania Trump is heading to visit them in footwear that is a challenge to walk in on dry land," she continued.
In the midst of Yaeger complaining about Trump's appearance, the fashion writer admits that the First Lady was set to to change into sneakers when she arrived in Texas.
"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," she said.
But, as we've all come to know, there is no appeasing a feminist: "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?" she wrote.
"And why, oh why, can’t this administration get anything, even a pair of shoes, right?" added the writer.
The First Lady's communications director fired back at the media meltdowns over Trump's shoes, scolding the outlets for being “worried about her shoes” during the “active and ongoing natural disaster" in Texas.
Yaeger's Vogue profile says she's a native New Yorker who "can be found haunting flea markets all over the world" when she's not spouting-off about fashion. Aside from "fashion," Yaeger has an affinity for taking on the Trump White House; see This Week, Donald Trump’s White House Continued to Unhinge, Which Republicans Will Desert Trump’s Sinking Ship First?, Why Is President Trump Coddling the White Supremacist Movement?, and Do Not Feel Sorry for Jeff Sessions, as such examples.
Remember folks, you must never attack a woman for her looks or her attire unless her (or her husband's) politics are wrong. Or something.
