On Tuesday, President Donald Trump visited Texas to lend support to those suffering from the horrific and deadly flooding and storms caused by Hurricane Harvey.
As with everything that Trump does, the trip proved controversial. One of the major and more absurd points of controversy had to do, strangely enough, with fashion. At the very beginning of the day, First Lady Melania Trump was criticized for wearing stiletto heels leaving the White House.
Many ran with the fake news that Melania was wearing stilettos in a flood zone. As it turns out, the first lady owns more than one pair of shoes and deplaned in Texas wearing a white pair of sneakers. President Trump was seen throughout the day wearing a hat emblazoned with “USA” on it.
Many criticized the president for wearing campaign gear during the trip. The “USA” hats are for sale for $40. And Melania’s shoes were not the only eyebrow-raising fashion choices she made that day.
Melania also wore, for the first time, a FLOTUS hat, to rave reviews.
