I have a friend who has never worn flats unless she's running.  I don't really know what the big deal is here.  What was she supposed to do?  Buy special shoes to go to Texas?  Then we'd all be complaining about that!

 I just need to know how she walks across a lawn in those heels.

 Also the point is that they're going into a disaster area - a very messy place - and they're dressing like they don't expect to get messy. They expect people to keep them from getting messy. Screw that. Roll up your sleeves and help or GTFO. Donnie didn't need to do his little photo op in TX.

It is a silly thing to be outraged about, but it is as if she is saying "I'll come to your disaster area, but not near anything remotely icky".  This is more of a "shrug, what did we expect" type of thing.

Well, she IS a model after all.  I don't think I would want her near anything that she could screw up.  Let's just snap her photo and move on.

Why is she wearing a hat that says "FLOTUS?"  Do we need to be told who she is?

Do they own a hat stitching company?

I'm surprised they even made the trip, to be honest.

Redneck messaging is evolving vertically from belt buckles, to t-shirts, to trucker hats.

Expect the next fascist candidate to just have a shaved head with a goddamn John Deere logo tattooed to his scalp.

I like trump's brand new boots. I hope he gets blistered as fark.

How they're dressed seems less eye roll inducing that his "what a crowd, what a turnout!" remark.

Trumpy promised to wear his FLATTUS hat. It was gonna be a his and hers thing. But then he forgot.

I am so far impressed that Trump has only partially cluster-farked this disaster.

1) I don't think anyone in Houston cares about his crowd size at his speaking event.
2) This will be the best response to a disaster ever.  If my house is floating away, i don't care. I need a house.

Other that that, do what you do 2 scoops.

City aint' the problem here.  They'd be foppish no matter where they lived.  I mean have you seen those "great white hunter" pics of Donnie Jr?

And I think Melania is contractually obligated to wear heels at all times.

Or...somebody on her staff could've been alerted to the outrage (or had a working pair of synapses firing) and hurriedly convinced her that it might be a great idea to wear something a bit less "I'm going shopping for Jimmy Choos" and a bit more somber.
 
2017-08-29 05:02:03 PM  
The notion that she's going to do anything there but take up resources that are needed elsewhere is ludicrous.  She should have stayed behind or put her in a photo op reading to kids that are dealing with the tragedy of losing their homes.

The hardest part with Drumpf is that there's nothing you can do with him that seems genuine unless it's a golf course.

You can't slap him into a jumpsuit and have him help empty trucks.  You can't put him in a soup kitchen or behind a counter with a ladel.  You can't put him anywhere that won't look awkward and he won't look disconnected from it all by his basic demeanor and dress.

the most genuine output he could come up with would be to bus people to a place he owns and let them stay for free until the waters subside.

....and that aint' gonna happen.
 
2017-08-29 05:02:26 PM  
and even with this monumental tragedy right in front of his face, he has the nerve to talk about the size of the crowd.

wow.

She's dressed like she's going to farking Dallas. There's a big rivalry between the cities and she got it wrong. Hell, she's even in Austin dressed like that.

I mean, on one level WGAF. On another level, if you have a shiat you'd bother about these things.

The visual bad. The president is supposed to be "for the people". People and dying, losing their homes, and losing their businesses. He's dressed without even a pretense that he will help with the recovery effort, and she's dressed in $1,000 heels. It's not appropriate. It's fine that they're ultra-wealthy Manhattan socialites, but they don't represent the vast majority of this country.
 
2017-08-29 05:08:58 PM  
It is not like they are going to let her do anything but stand there. If she was actually going to help at a disaster area then yes she should be wearing something sensible.

IS. farkING. PISSED!  Nothing he can do about it and he wants to go home, he sure as hell doesnt want to waste his sick time being trapped.

Kinda.  Any time to see them in a hat or some other MAGA gear, it's probably for sale on Trump's campaign website.  There was a thing floating around the intewebs earlier today on how those pics of trump sitting alone at Camp David this weekend were basically promo shots for a couple of $40 hats he's selling.

If Donnie 2 Scoops plops his fat ass down on your toilet, you better get the plunger ready - he BEEFS.

He'll drop 5-or-6 forearm-sized logs in there with no flushes in between. Rumor has it that after the NYE party at Mar-A-Lago, he shiat in the shower and heeled it down the drain.
 
2017-08-29 05:17:08 PM  
If this was Obama, the same people cumming all over Trump's shoes for going to the disaster area would be saying that he should stay away and let the professionals clean things up.

i don't have any farks to give about her shoes but i do care that he held a impromptu farking rally for himself later on when he was leaving.  Heifer in chief didn't mention loss of life or pretty much anything pertaining to victims or first responders. he was thrilled that fark independents and other assorted economic security a$$hats showed up to cheer him on.  this little fake rally was not doubt set up by his own staff.

That their "we're one of you, just with money" schtick is phony, that they're ill-equipped to even understand, never mind sympathize, with the folks that are suffering from a friggin' disaster in Texas, and that they're going to enjoy a photo-op, not to lend moral support to an already stressed and overworked rescue & relief effort?

Seems salient.

Actually, a surprisingly large number of them really do think Obama was President during Katrina.  I've seen it up close and personal.  When the idiot said as much, I choked and had to spit out a mouthful of perfectly good wine.  Then my buddies had to hold me down to keep me from strangling the idiot.
