First Lady Melania Trump was slammed for her stilettos. Critics of the president came after Melania for the high heels that she wore on her way to Houston, TX on Tuesday night. The president and the First Lady were on their way to survey the wreckage that Hurricane Harvey left in its wake.
The Daily Show’s host, Trevor Noah, defended Melania. His show opened with Korea’s latest missile launch that flew over Japan. But Noah said that people weren’t talking about it because “Melania Trump apparently did something much worse…she went to Houston wearing high heels.”
Noah then challenged the petty critics saying, “I don’t know why anyone should care what anyone wears when they’re on their way to help people,” Noah challenged. “Like who cares?”
Trevor Noah then made the observation that no one criticizes what the Pope wears. Noah said he “looks like he’s going to a P Diddy party.”
The comedy/news show host summed up saying, “I know some people are like, ‘No Trevor, it’s not about that. It’s about sensitivity. You don’t wear things like that to a disaster zone,’” he continued. “I understand that, but in Melania’s defense, she lives in a permanent disaster zone and that’s what she always wears.”
Of course, Noah couldn’t leave out the punch line.
The segment ended with Noah telling his listeners to “cut her some slack.” Instead, somebody out there will probably criticize her “slacks.”
