Nothing says “Disaster” Like Snake Skin Stiletto Heels


“Catastrophic” is the word that is being used most often to describe the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey.  The National Weather Service announced Tuesday  that the all-time record for total rainfall from a tropical system in the U.S. was broken in Cedar Bayou, Texas — about 30 miles from downtown Houston — at 51.88 inches.  Experts believe that Hurricane Harvey will be the costliest natural disaster in U.S. history with a potential price tag of $160 billion.

This is equal to the combined cost of Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy, and represents a 0.8% economic hit to the gross national product.

“Parts of Houston, the United States’ fourth largest city, will be uninhabitable for weeks and possibly months due to water damage, mold, disease-ridden water and all that will follow this 1,000-year flood.”

The Federal Reserve, major banks, insurance companies and other business leaders should begin to factor in the negative impact this catastrophe will have on business, corporate earnings and employment.

Harvey is what climate change looks like. More specifically, Harvey is what climate change looks like in a world that has decided, over and over, that it doesn’t want to take climate change seriously.  As Donald and Melania departed the White House to travel to Houston, hoping for a photo-op, they didn’t seem concerned about climate change.  They seemed more focused on what to wear.  Melania decided that nothing says “hurricane” like Snake skin Stilettos.

Melania did change her shoes while on the way to Texas.  However she chose sparkling white tennis shoes and a personalized baseball cap identifying herself as the FLOTUS.  It was as if she was more concerned with the photo op than the catastrophic loss in Texas.

The stilettos are just one more example of the offensive nature of having a President and First Lady who are billionaires.  In May when Melania arrived at a G7 summit event in Italy, she was wearing a floral Dolce and Gabbana coat that reportedly retailed for $51,000.  That is the equivalent of an average American household income for an entire year.

Record-breaking flooding is expected to continue through the week, levees are crumbling, refineries are submerged, and thousands of stranded people may be need to be airlifted from hotels, homes, and hospitals in coming days.  The cost of the storm damage is estimated as high as $100 billion, and it could max out federal emergency funds, insurance policies, and the personal savings of local residents.

When Congress reconvenes in early September they will be faced with disaster relief bills.  Trump previously threatened to shut down the US government if Congress didn’t fund the construction of a border wall.  If Trump shuts down the government now it would jeopardize disaster relief for thousands of Texans.

 

The time has come for Donald and Melania to ensure relief to thousands of homeless victims of Hurricane Harvey.  The Trump visit to Texas was clearly for publicity and had nothing to do with actually helping victims.  Democrats and Republicans were affected by the Hurricane.  Nobody really cares about what type of shoes Melania wore to greet Texans who were ravaged by the hurricane.  Nobody really cares about which hat Donald wore, or the size of the crowd gathered outside the Corpus Christie fire station.  What we care about are the fellow citizens in dire need of help, and whether the President is going to do the necessary to help them, and take steps to curb global warming in an attempt to minimize the chance of this happening again.

  1. “If Hillary was locked up this wouldn’t have happened,” declare the KKK, the evangelicals, etc.

    Remember, global warming is but a SYMPTOM of the real problem – the denial of EVOLUTION.

    We won’t have an earth unless people accept this truth. This is not about belief, but truth.

  3. Stay safe, Malia! You are correct, it was more of a photo op for the Trumps in Texas. Melania changed from her $600 stilettos into a pair of white Adidas, but when she landed in Texas, she had no intention of rolling up her sleeves and pitching in to help. Did she visit a shelter? Did she hand out blankets or bottles of water to people in a shelter? Did she speak with frightened children in a shelter? Looked like all she did was sit next to her lard-ass husband wearing sunglasses and a baseball cap with FLOTUS printed on it. Melania’s white Adidas shoes were clean and dry when she departed Texas because she didn’t get anywhere near the flood water or the people who have lost everything!

  4. Those shoes are some sort of Trump fetish. When I worked as a marshal in pro am golf tournaments, there was always a flock of hookers and whatever following Trump, all walking, stumbling, falling the 4-5 mile, 18 hole round in high heels. Apparently he likes high heels and very strong perfume.
    Somewhere in Texas there was probably a flock of hookers in snakeskin heels that were submerged in a couple feet of water.
