“It’s Melania’s shoe choice that really stood out though. The Timberland boots are being called an ‘out of touch’ style selection by some on Twitter.”

This is someone who visited a combat zone and instead what we’re harping on is the choice of footwear. Good grief.

Oh well. At least there’s no way anyone could call this racist, right? There’s at least tha–
