Confronting Harvey’s fury, President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania made an all-out push Tuesday to show the federal government’s responsiveness to the massive storm that has lashed the Texas coast and caused catastrophic flooding.
While they are visiting to assess the damage and how to get Houston residents the help they need, liberals got distracted.

Continuing in their ‘Trump can’t do anything right’ mindset, they took a genuinely caring response by the President and decided instead to criticize the wardrobe of the first lady.
While boarding Air Force One, Melania sported black capris, a olive green bomber jacket, and god-forbid… heels!
While she changed into more practical footwear while aboard the plane, Twitter users lost it!

Notorious anti-Trump celebrity Chelsea Handler tweeted:

But Melania’s office responded to the criticism, drawing attention to the absurdity of the attention to her shoes when there are clearly bigger issues at hand.

CNN reporter Kate Bennett shared a statement from Melania’s communications director:
from @FLOTUS comms dir: "It's sad that we have an active and ongoing natural disaster in Texas, and people are worried about her shoes."

But Twitter liberals can rest easy. Here is a video of Melania arriving in Corpus Christi, Texas, dressed more appropriately.

Trump is visiting Texas to observe the federal government’s work to help the state recover after Harvey’s devastation. The storm, bringing torrents of rain and all but paralyzing Houston, marks the first time Trump has been tested by a major natural disaster.
The president was scheduled to receive briefings on the relief efforts in Corpus Christi, Texas, and later meet with state officials at the emergency operations center in Austin. The president was joined by first lady Melania Trump and other officials.
