In the wake of the most devastating tropical storm our country has ever seen, it’s amazing how our entire national political conversation can revolve around women’s shoes. The media and the loathsome Social Justice Warriors on Twitter attacked First Lady Melania Trump’s high heels as she flew to Texas on Tuesday. However, a compromising photo of Michele Obama has surfaced online after eight years. Now, Melania has finally been vindicated.
When President Donald Trump and his beautiful wife departed for Texas this week, Melania was photographed in a pair of her signature stilettos. The press and liberals on social media immediately had a field day. I’m not exaggerating — they scrambled to their keyboards in record time to tweet their outrage over the first lady’s “offensive” choice in footwear. As if shoes could even be offensive. C’mon people.
Undeterred by common sense, the usual Social Justice Warriors slammed Melania for wearing high heels to a flood zone. They completely ignored the fact that she had another pair of shoes on the plane, which she changed into before landing in Texas. As the Trumps disembarked in Corpus Christi, Melania was seen donning sensible white sneakers.

Seeing as those on the left are so obsessed with the first lady’s shoe choice, though, let’s take a look back at another pair of tennis shoes — a pair worn by mainstream media darling Michelle Obama.
Mrs. Obama could do no wrong in the eyes of the press and the left – one in the same, really – when she was the first lady. The shoes she wore to a food bank in 2009 prove as much. Out-of-touch Michelle chose to wear a pair of $540 sneakers to feed the poor. No joke.
Imagine standing in line at that food bank, waiting patiently for a free meal because you’re so poor you cannot even buy yourself some ramen noodles, and in saunters Michelle Obama wearing shoes that could feed a family of four for one month. That’d be quite the sight for sore eyes, I’m sure.
What the media has conveniently forgotten about is that time former First Lady Michelle Obama wore $540 designer sneakers to feed the poor at a Washington, D.C., food bank in May, 2009. Yes, you read that right.
These were certainly no Crocs. They were made by Lanvin, a high-fashion French designer, and have been famously worn by prominent figures such as Ellen DeGeneres and Kanye West. [Source: IJR]
If the playing fields were level, if the media only reported fair and balanced news, they would have been far more offended by the pricey sneakers Michelle Obama wore to a food bank than the high heels Melania Trump wore only long enough to board a plane before changing into something more comfortable. Sadly, fair and balanced reporting is a thing of the past in America. The mainstream media is in the Democratic Party’s pocket.
