In the last few hours, U.S. President Donald Trump has announced his plans to visit Texas to observe the response to the devastation of Tropical Storm Harvey and visit its victims. This marks the first major natural disaster of his White House tenure.
While it is great to see the President take action, one can’t help but wonder why Melania Trump has taken this opportunity to make a fashion statement? The First Lady was spotted in completely inappropriate black stiletto heels, a bomber jacket and aviator sunglasses.

#morningjoe I'm sure last thing weary, hungry, barefoot Harvey victims need 2C is Melania in her designer "flood" outfit drinking a Red Bull
