A member of the First Family is once again under fire for wardrobe choices.
In a photo taken Tuesday of Melania Trump leaving the White House with President Donald Trump to board Marine One, which will take them to Corpus Christi, Texas, the First Lady is seen wearing some killer heels, along with an all-black ensemble and an army green bomber jacket. Her husband wears khakis and a raincoat in the shot.
Many on Twitter find the First Lady’s outfit to be inappropriate for visiting an area of the country that has been pummeled by Tropical Storm Harvey, which started out as a Category 4 hurricane before touching land. So far, 3,400 people have been rescued by Houston Police in the aftermath of the storm, and that number is only expected to rise, Police Chief Art Acevedo said Tuesday.
“I’m confused. Is Melania flying Marine One or is there a Top Gun reunion in Texas?” one Twitter user quipped. Other users were quick to find a pun — “Marine One: Helping Texas heel” — while others found the outfit to look like playing dress up.
We can presume that FLOTUS will change her shoes before touching down, right? We’ll find out soon, as the First Couple lands at 12 p.m. ET in Corpus Christi, Texas, before heading to Austin.
See below for more angry reactions to Melania’s footwear.

Nothing says "help is on the way" more than a mail order bride in heels and a flight jacket. Marine One pic.twitter.com/Z91cEc7A25

Melania starting a fall trend: she is turning the F-me pump into FU pumps for her trip to Texas. #MarineOne

These people are just playing 'dress-up' for their 'roles.' What a mockery.
