There are a number of strange ways in which the left has mangled logic in order to attack the President and his administration, but this latest tirade is just about as shallow as they come.
The liberal “resistance” to the President and his policies has previously manifested itself in bizarre ways, with the left calling for everything from military action to assassination. In the wake of the Charlottesville weekend war, a radicalized portion of the liberal political machine has even attempted to connect the neo-Nazi and white supremacist groups to the White House, claiming that Donald Trump’s swift condemnation of bigotry on Saturday night never occurred, and that this was proof positive of the President’s inherent racism.
In reality, the President has now twice condemned the actions of these racists, calling our their organizations by name, yet the left continues to decry his response.
Now, as the nation continues to find itself dividing down party lines, a new attack is coming from the left, aimed at the First Lady and First Daughter.
“In the piece, which was titled ‘Melania, Ivanka, and Ivana Trump Wear High Heels, a Symbol of Everything That Is Beautiful and Horrifying About Them,’ author Nina Burleigh wrote that high heels are out of fashion, but the Trump women still wear them.
“She said that’s because the they are primarily concerned with appearing attractive to men, not wearing comfortable footwear.
“’Historically, the Trumpian women’s shoe of choice was invented not for women but for aristocratic men, men who would never have to work, and who didn’t have to walk much but were carried in litters or carriages,’ Burleigh wrote. ‘Paintings of Louis XIV, the Sun King, show him sporting red-soled heels, posing with one foot forward and pointed out— much like Ivana and Ivanka Trump in countless photographs over the years.’
“Likewise, a recent piece in Forbes said that Melania Trump is fashionable, but she’s unlikely to become a fashion icon like Michelle Obama.
“‘Becoming an icon is about more than just a pretty face and an international platform,’ author Rachelle Bergstein wrote, arguing that the current first lady sticks to a ‘classic style’ while the former first lady ‘captured the zeitgeist in fashion.'”
The absurdity of these arguments are incredible displays of forced bipartisanship in the mainstream media.
Fashion choices of the First Women of the White House have literally nothing to do with Trump’s public policies, let alone their ability to be icons in any facet of their being. Melania’s work as FLOTUS has been compassionate and concise, much to the dismay of her leftist antagonizers. At the same time, Ivanka Trump has been quietly influential with her father’s policy-making, often being credited with injecting a sense of empathy in President Trump’s outlook.
