Shoes? Michelle Obama DIDN’T GO with Barack to NJ After Hurricane Sandy

First Lady Melania Trump is being slammed for wearing stiletto heels to board Air Force One for the trip to visit hurricane-ravaged Texas Tuesday. She later changed out of them.


Which begs the question: What shoes did Michelle Obama wear when accompanying her husband to Atlantic City to meet with local leaders and comfort residents? The answer is, she didn’t technically wear any shoes at all to go to New Jersey, because she didn’t go to New Jersey.

On October 30, 2012, President Obama took a day off from campaigning for reelection to go to Atlantic City and stroll around with Gov. Chris Christie to see the devastation. This is Michelle’s schedule for the day.

So, okay, clearly she was very busy. Actually, Mrs. Obama rarely accompanied her husband on official business, like foreign trips and so forth, especially in the second term. And the press didn’t seem to notice or care.

I’m sure Melania is thinking, “I never asked for this.” Indeed, she did not. Unlike her predecessor, for example, she has not established her own taxpayer-funded fiefdom in the East Wing, cutting the first lady’s staff from the 24 Michelle needed to just five.

But no one will thank her as long as she’s in heels.

  1. My FLOTUS can walk and rock in heels better than I can in lace-up Dr. Scholls.
    The lady could wear combat boots, a gunny sack for a dress, a knitted ski cap and still be 100% more beautiful than every modern FLOTUS before her.

  2. I can not recall anything the MSM has written positive about Melania whereas Michelle did no wrong.

    As a side note both Texas Senators did not vote for Sandy funds. They are being called hypocrites. The truth is they did not vote for the Sandy bill because it was loaded with pork.

    • One of our (NJ) Dem Congress Critters, Frank Pallone yesterday denied it was full of pork. Of course, I’m sure the fisheries in Alaska provision would have been of enormous help to Sandy victims here. Moreover, “I would go on the floor because I was trying to get the votes and I would ask them why they weren’t going to vote for the bill and they would say ‘Oh because it’s going to New York and New Jersey and you guys are a bunch of crooks and you’re going to waste the money,’” Pallone said. And of course, that is exactly what happened!

  3. First the MSM ignores the hurricane to comment on Melania’s shoes. Then WashPo comes out with an article criticizing Trump for being supportive and positive versus weepy and mourning while in Texas.

    This couple can do no right in the MSM’s eyes. Their public agrees — the comments under the WashPo article are horrid attacks on Trump.
