Trevor Noah Defends Melania Trump's High Heels: 'Who Cares?'

First Lady Melania Trump made headlines earlier this week for sporting high heels on her way to Texas with President Trump to visit Hurricane Harvey victims.

Amidst all of the criticism, Melania Trump found an ally in Trevor Noah who reprimanded those freaking out over FLOTUS's shoes.

“Here’s my thing: I don’t know why anyone should care what anyone wears when they’re on their way to help people,” Noah said. “People were like, ‘Why is she wearing those heels when she’s going to help people?’ Like, who cares? Look at the pope! You see how he dresses? All white with giant bling. He looks like he’s going to a P. Diddy party, but we don’t say, ‘Hey, you can’t go out helping people dressed like that!’”

Of course, Noah couldn't defend the First Lady without getting in some kind of dig at Trump, adding, "And I know some people are like, ‘Trevor, it’s not about that, it’s about sensitivity. You don’t wear things like that to a disaster zone.' And I understand that. But in Melania’s defense, she lives in a permanent disaster zone and that’s what she always wears.” 

Noah added all the hype over Melania's footwear is pretty silly, considering the very real threat of a potential missile strike from North Korea.

"But people weren't talking about the nuclear missile that Kim Jong Un tested because Melania Trump apparently did something much worse. You see, she went to Houston wearing high heels," he mocked.

Noah's got a point: how often does the left-wing media cover these nonsense stories, while real news gets swept under the mat? These substance-less articles and endless TV segments dissecting idiocies like what Barron or Melania Trump are wearing do absolutely no good. While Houston suffers, the media continues to scrape the bottom of the barrel for anything they can use to paint the Trump family in a negative light. 

The Washington Examiner reported that a spokeswoman for FLOTUS said of the incident, "It's sad that we have an active and ongoing natural disaster in Texas, and people are worried about her shoes."
