True Americans are not focusing on the leftist’s perceived insult supposedly perpetrated by our First Lady when she boarded a plane twice in high heels on her way to the devastated areas left by Hurricane Harvey. One very well known and respected woman has come out to say as much.
Known for being the wife of American Sniper, Chris Kyle, Taya herself is quite a powerhouse behind a rifle having won many shooting competitions, and she is also currently a contributor for Fox News. It seems that Taya Kyle took it quite personal when liberals jumped on our First Lady for her recent choice of footwear.
Taya Kyle always brings truth in the simplest way possible, and you have to love it when she points our how ignorant the left truly is.
According to Conservative Tribune :
Taya Kyle, the widow of deceased American sniper Chris Kyle, has responded to the criticism faced last week by first lady Melania Trump over a photo that depicted her wearing heels as she stepped onto Air Force One en-route to Texas.
Though Melania changed into sneakers awhile aboard the plane, her critics in the media pounced on her anyway, complaining of the purportedly bad optics of her being sighted wearing heels at the start of her and her husband’s trip to flood-ravaged Texas.
Kyle, whose husband’s story was presented in the 2014 biographical thriller “American Sniper,” didn’t care for this petty rhetoric.
“I was actually stunned by it,” she said over the weekend to Fox News host Abby Huntsman. “It took me a second to get my emotions in check. I was almost speechless.”
“I’ve always felt like truth matters, right, and I feel like sometimes in our culture we’re getting into this thing where smoke and mirrors are supposed to matter more, and we should care more about covering up the truth of things than just being who we are,” she continued.
“Donald and Melania Trump have money. That’s OK with me. I just want them to do their jobs … I don’t need smoke and mirrors to make the optics look better. To me, optics says, ‘Come on, at least try to fool the people.’”
Exactly. But because the media care more about empty virtue signaling (or optics) versus meaningful, concrete actions — such as those being taken by Melania and her husband, President Donald Trump, to assist the victims of Hurricane Harvey — they still can’t get over the first lady wearing heels.
Listen to Kyle’s full statement below:
And like Kyle also noted, nobody suffering in Texas cares about optics. They care about results.
“What you care about is, do you have a generator?” she said. “Is your dog safe? Are you going to make it through tomorrow?”
Writing last week for The Philadelphia Inquirer, columnist Christine Flowers added her own two cents, noting that the so-called “journalists” who attacked Melania for her choice in footwear “should have known better.”
“This was serious stuff, and anyone who thought that ruminating on Melania Trump’s choice of shoes was appropriate is nothing more than a pathetic rube,” she wrote.
Correct. But sadly, pathetic rubes are a dime a dozen these days in the media.
We are sure that liberals everywhere will come out in droves to attack Taya Kyle for her opinion because that is just what they do, and she is exactly the very type of woman they hate the most. She is successful, compassionate, fashion savvy, outspoken, and trained with weaponry. She portrays the All-American woman.
So much for that perception that the left is for women’s rights. Their narrative about women having the right to express themselves and be successful has become comedic since that is the exact type of woman they constantly attack, but only if she is a conservative. Get it together libs, because it appears as if you are falling apart more than you were before.
The ridiculousness that is happening in this country during such catastrophes as hurricane damage as well as the western fires that currently rage is beyond understanding. Maybe the left should shut up and start helping this country get through these disasters, but that would take real work. That is a word that is unfortunately foreign to them.
