Liberals have lost so many races and so much power in the last year, they’re now grasping at straws.
One Newsweek writer has decided that the high heels worn by Melania and Ivanka is something to be worried about. That high heels are a “horrifying” symbol of something wrong.
MELANIA, IVANKA AND IVANA TRUMP WEAR HIGH HEELS, A SYMBOL OF EVERYTHING THAT IS BEAUTIFUL AND HORRIFYING ABOUT THEM
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.
Former Vogue editor Andre Leon Talley, a longtime friend of Melania Trump’s, believes that, other than the White House Easter Egg hunt on the lawn, Melania has not been photographed as first lady without her feet arched into one of two brands of towering high-heeled shoes that she favors, Manolo Blahniks or the 4.5-inch-heeled Oh So Kate by Christian Louboutin. (Talley says Melania picked up 22 pairs of Manolos in various colors before decamping to the White House last month.) . . . Feminists have long grappled with the high-heeled shoe, and whether the stiletto telegraphs power (sexual or otherwise) or self-hobbled weakness. Stiletto pumps are the ultimate test of a certain type of femininity. They signal the taut combination of power and weakness that conservative women must cultivate in order to survive among ideologues who are crafting our tax-free “Handmaid’s Tale” future.
It’s worth remembering that Ms. Burleigh has a history of lionizing Presidents of the other party.
Lionizing them in a disgustingly sexual way.
This is the same woman who, in July of 1998, offered to give Bill Clinton oral sex, cheering that women should get out their “presidential kneepads.”
I’d be happy to give him [oral sex] just to thank him for keeping abortion legal,” she said.
I think American women should be lining up with their Presidential kneepads on to show their gratitude for keeping the theocracy off our backs.”
The July 7,1998 CyberAlert recounted Burleigh’s excitement over being ogled by Clinton:
The President’s foot lightly, and presumably accidentally, brushed mine once under the table. His hand touched my wrist while he was dealing the cards. When I got up and shook his hand at the end of the game, his eyes wandered over to my bike-wrecked, naked legs. And slowly it dawned on me as I walked away: He found me attractive.
“No doubt the President’s lawyers and spin doctors would say I wishfully imagined that long, appreciative look, just as all those other women have fantasized their more explicitly sexual encounters with Clinton. But we all know when we’re being ogled. The weird thing was that I didn’t mind.
Now she thinks high heels are “horrifying?”
Liberals have gone crazy!
