Newsweek: First Lady Melania Trump ‘Normalizing’ High Fashion Stiletto Heels

Shaming women for the shoes they wear: keeping it classy, Newsweek?

This hiatus allows us to reflect on a minor Trumpian trend to which the nation has become accustomed since January: the ubiquitous stiletto pump. The vertiginous spike-heel shoe is not currently in fashion, but for Ivana, Ivanka, Melania and the Trump daughters-in-law, Carrie Bradshaw’s shoe of choice never went out of style. In fact, the female consorts of the Leader of the Free World do not set foot in public without first molding their arches into the supranatural curve that Mattel toy designers once devised for Barbie’s plastic feet.

Six months in, and the Trump women are well on their way to normalizing the footwear of the beauty pageant. The Cinderella shoe fitted on the feet of all the Miss Teen USA’s and Miss Universes who ever beamed under the Trumpian gaze in contests of yore also is the shoe that average women can bear for only a few hours at weddings or proms, before casting them off, moaning and rubbing their soles.

A Newsweek writer who attacks FLOTUS for for wearing heels thinks US women should line up to give Bill Clinton a blow job. “I would be happy to give him a blowjob just to thank him for keeping abortion legal. I think American women should be lining up with their Presidential kneepads on to show their gratitude for keeping the theocracy off our backs.” This is a writer who covers the political beat. On the one hand, it’s anti-women and oppressive to wear high heels in 2017, but on the other hand, she argued once that every woman, without regard to the women Bill Clinton sexually harassed, the intern he used and committed adultery with and almost got impeached over, and the women he allegedly raped; should all line up to give him a blow job because they have abortion rights. By American women, this includes your mothers and sisters and wives and daughters, right?

The greater point here, however, is that the confirmation bias of this writer is so extreme she has created an entire conspiratorial narrative of Trump women oppressing and dismantling feminism based on the the shoes they wear.
