Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world. Marilyn Monroe
Leaders show up.
Leaders "walk point" (sometimes literally).
And that is what our President and First Lady did this week in Texas - to survey the incomprehensible destruction courtesy of hurricane Harvey and encourage those devastated along with those helping the devastated.
Leadership - from the front - walking point.
Because walking the ground is not watching the ground on a screen halfway across the country (also known as "'leadership' from behind").
The Trumps walked the flooded grounds of Texas.
But a focus of the story, as reported by (disturbed, fake) media, was not the walking - presence and leadership. Rather, our First Lady's choice of footwear.
Analysis (without opinion) ...
Catty women noticed Melania's stilettos.
Gay men noticed Melania's stilettos.
Gender-confused noticed Melania's stilettos.
Men (Marines, for certain) noticed appropriate for the occasion, form-fitting slacks. And assumed a pair of feet - probably in boots.
Leaders noticed our country's leaders out front and could give a damn what was on their feet. That's the (walking) point.
Marilyn Monroe would not have objected to Melania's stilettos.
You're a lucky man, President Trump.
Media: Worn out heels; useless soles (and souls).
