Michelle Obama lorded over America as First Lady for eight years.
She was always in the middle of controversy for her lavish tastes and questionable spending.
But recent events brought to light one controversy that showcased the worst of Michelle Obama’s behavior.
When Hurricane Harvey hit Houston, President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump took a trip to the surrounding area to show support and highlight the federal government’s commitment to an efficient and orderly response.
But rather than focus on Trump’s response to the Hurricane – which the media billed as a make or break moment for his Presidency – journalists attacked Melania Trump because she was photographed boarding Air Force One wearing stiletto high heels.

God grant me the serenity not to comment on the shoes.

The conduct by the media was outrageous.
Homes have been destroyed.
Lives have been lost.
But the media hates Trump so badly they are willing to try and tear the country apart by mocking Melania Trump’s shoes.
This behavior stands in stark contrast to how Michelle Obama was covered.
When Michelle Obama showed up at D.C. food bank to feed the poor, the press heaped worshipful coverage upon her for her fashion sense.
The slavish devotion to Obama included a favorable write up that noted she was wearing $540 sneakers.
The New York Daily News reported:
“While volunteering Wednesday at a D.C. food bank, the First Lady sported her usual J. Crew cardigan, a pair of utilitarian capri pants and, on her feet, a sneaky splurge: trainers that go for $540.
That’s right: These sneakers — suede, with grosgrain ribbon laces and metallic pink toe caps – are made by French design house Lanvin, one of fashion’s hottest labels….
It’s likely Michelle got hers through Ikram, the Chicago retailer that often outfits her.
“They’re shoes,” the First Lady’s reps sniffed when curious reporters inquired about the fancy footwear.”
Members of the media hate the Trumps and love the Obamas.
The fake controversy over Melania Trump – who was a fashion icon and super model – and her shoes, compared to the sycophantic coverage of Michelle Obama, is a clear example of the media’s bias.
And it’s just another reason why so many Americans agree with Donald Trump that the fake news media is the enemy of the people.
