Media this week with the first, to take on former first lady Michelle Obama, the choice of glittering boots, quickly offered another, when it comes to the current first lady, Melania Trump, fashion-decisions-from fan-boy to “My girl.”

Earlier this month, while promoting her new book, “Always,” Mrs. Obama stepped on the stage in a glittering thigh-high boots from the designer Balenciaga. Mainstream media, which have often struggled to keep their composure when it comes to the Obamas, who had lost it.

“It was not only eye-catching ensemble. It was the fashion. Fashion. Faaaashion!” The Washington Post wrote.


CNN explains that Mrs Obama “ended the year in style,” while the Cosmopolitan, said: “All the other shoes are broken.”

“Say it with me: NOTHING but RESPECT FOR MY FIRST LADY!”, Cosmo said article headlined: “Michelle Obama Just in $4,000 Gold thigh-High boots and I have Never Loved you More,” said.

But also in the breathless reporting, the find liberal authors of the time, pour some scorn on Mrs Trump, himself a former model. Vox, calling Obama a “style influencer”, then immediately knocked out the Trump that you “made the headlines, the excesses of fashion.”


But not to visit if Mrs Trump accompanied her husband, the troops in Iraq on Christmas, the media — in the style of the 2004 Film “Mean Girls” – went from “that’s so fetch,” to “you can sit with us!”

As a first lady could look like, something out of place, wear thigh-high glitter shoes to Al Asad Air Base, and she wore a simple T-shirt, pants, and Timberland boots. But this raised a few eyebrows in the media, including Yahoo News, where an article appeared: “Melania Trump is being mocked for wearing Timberland boots during a visit to the troops.”

The ridicule in this case came from a handful of Twitter users with Yahoo notes that “one person even suggested that putting on Timberlands, was a last-ditch attempt by FLOTUS to always be criticized for their other Shoe choices-including the infamous “storm of stilettos.”

“But it wouldn’t be the first time that Melania wore a pair of the brand shoes, and also got mocked for it,” the article said, linking to an article in the year 2017, when Yahoo reported last Melania is mocked for wearing Timberlands.

In the city hall, Media Research Center founder Brent Bozell criticized the article and compares it with a positive article Yahoo published about the Obama boots. Bozell said that, in their eyes, Obama “can do no wrong.”


“One would think that the feminist women in the media could come up with a better article to write than hateful Twitter raids of liberals mocking about Melania Trump boots-especially if it has nothing to do with the shoes,” he wrote.

But the media votes is not done. On return from your trip to Iraq, the first lady, made their way across the South Lawn wearing some tan leather pants.

Mercury News called it your “current head-scratching ensemble” explained and up to the year 2016 to be “wild” year of the curious, controversial first lady of fashion.”

The cut called it “confusing pants.” Vanity Fair launched what he called “an investigation” in the leather pants, it is baiting as an “Internet.” It includes this rather snarky paragraph:

“At first glance, it seems that the FLOTUS rolled out of bed, threw on a coat, and went to the Air Force One. But as she begins to move, you can see, the fabric rolled up to the knee — when you are being watched very, very carefully. Those appears to be the tan leather-pants.”


This is the same Vanity Fair, in November, covered Michelle Obama’s book with an article entitled: “the Best moments of becoming, the Created wonders of Michelle Obama.”

Mrs Trump addressed, the negative reporting in the media in an interview this month with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, where she said that she does “what is right” in spite of the negative reporting.

“I do what I think is right. I know I’m going to the criticism – by the public or by the media – but I’m going to do what is right and what I feel is right for the country and for the people,” Trump replied. “This is why I say, I would like to stay with yourself and listen to myself and what to do and what is right, what is wrong and live a meaningful life every day.”
