Trump goes after … Lady Gaga?

Even on the eve of the election, Trump can’t resist getting distracted and going off message by attacking random people in his closing rallies. This time it was Lady Gaga who had appeared with Joe Biden earlier in the day.

Trump made fun of her name but he could also have drawn attention to her footwear. It is impressive that she can walk on those.

    Ah. Second link.

    I dunno about impressive; my adjective would be ‘stupid’.

    That’s Trump for you; attack the women. That’s what he does. And so many men go right along into it. So, her shoes are outlandish? That’s her brand. A lot of men wear really stupid sneakers, but somehow their clothing choices are respected.

    Took a closer look at her platform stiletto; they’re the same type that Sarah Palin wore and men “saw stars!” Including Trump, who took her out on a date where he ate pizza with a knife and fork.

    And Trump’s attack worked! Everyone’s obsessing over some random woman’s shoes, instead of the flaming dumpster fire that Trump is! You fell for it!

    Katydid, what?

    The two things are orthogonal.

    I can both consider Trump to be a ridiculous figure who would be a nothing were it not for his enablers, and that those shoes are ridiculous.

    (And I know fuck-all about the Gaga lady, but I’d rather have her be POTUS than he, since he clearly is gaga himself)

    @John: Trump, the malignant narcissist, has a history of attacking random women for random things to draw attention away from whatever deplorable and atrocious thing he’s just been caught doing. And it works! See this case, people immediately start piling on Lady Gaga for wearing…trendy shoes. Which are actually easier to walk in then those stiletto things Melania totters around in: the raised platform part of Gaga’s shoes not only lessen the angle her feet are pointed, but they also offer more cushioning to the front of the foot. It’s the difference between having to walk on concrete on tip-toes, and walking on a mat on tip-toes.

    So, Trump managed to divert attention from himself, because everyone’s talking about the shoes, not him.

    Doug lass, are you one of of those people who imagine they live in an alternate reality where Biden isn’t President-elect?
