Bush's Press Secretary Says Trump's Response To Harvey Was Missing 1 Thing

President Trump to travel to Texas on Tuesday

Donald and Melania Trump ready to board Marine One to travel to flood-stricken Texas Her shoe choice left some eyebrows raised.

"Not an expert, but are stiletto heels the best footwear for a disaster zone?" comedian Michael Ian Black wrote.

"It's sad that we have an active and ongoing natural disaster in Texas, and people are anxious about her shoes", Stephanie Grisham, the FLOTUS Communications Director, told CNN's Kate Bennett.

The first lady changed her outfit when she finally got off Air Force One when they arrived in Texas.

"By the way, she didn't wear those shoes down in Texas, she wore them onto the plane", Conway continued.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott said during Trump's visit earlier this week that the president and his cabinet had been in contact with him and his team about ten days before the storm.

After Melania Trump was photographed boarding Air Force One in what appeared to be Manolo Blahniks, Twitter critics and several media outlets issued swift condemnation. He also applauded Trump for planning on visiting Corpus Christi on Tuesday. Trump is sending a message of support to people of Texas and Louisiana suffering from historic rain and flooding. "But we don't say, hey he can't go out helping people dressed like that". "Nobody's ever seen anything like this, and I just want to say that working with the governor and his entire team has been an honor for us".

Looks like the Chief has taken down that tweet, much as he had to erase what he wrote about people attending a Trump rally past year: "Every man in the crowd looks like he has the same biological parents". Trump adds that "there's probably never been anything like" the storm and that "recovery will be a long and hard road".

Tens of thousands of people were driven from their homes after Harvey came ashore over the weekend as the most powerful hurricane to hit the state in a half-century. Much larger future installments will be required but the initial package, to replenish Federal Emergency Management Agency disaster coffers through September 30, shouldn't be controversial. The agency expects more than 450,000 people will seek federal assistance for storm recovery, and anticipates at least 30,000 people will be displaced.
