No! No! Not Shoes on the Sofa!






Trump advisor and former campaign manager got criticised for getting a little too casual in the White House, with her feet up on the sofa.

Worse than that, she didn't even take her shoes off. I bet her heels made a hole in the cushion.

That she is mostly criticised for her climbing with her shoes on shows the society favours the shoes-off approach.

I'm afraid the criticism was more about her getting too casual. In fact some people mistakenly thought she had her shoes off and criticized her for that.

Sandro said...

Yep they did, but most comments and articles in my search come like "did she at least take her shoes off?". Of course, if she had, there would be tons of "stinky feet" memes. It was a lose-lose situation for her.

Women in politics always get judged more harshly than men.

Matthew, while I cannot opine on your last comment with respect to Europe I can certainly tell you that is not the case in the US if the woman is a democrat.
Every democratic female politician in the US is treated with the up-most respect.
Republican women are treated only slightly better than those who commit filicide

I do believe that the former first lady told people to take their shoes off in the white house if they wanted. Mrs Obama said for them to get barefoot. I believe she was referring to women wearing uncomfy high heels
The Obamas were all in favour of the shoes off approach.

I cannot imagine the Obamas, or any presidential couple for that matter, to embrace the shoes off approach. Although I do remember a picture of Nancy Reagan sitting on the couch with her shoes off and her feet up.
