Outraged liberals attacked First Lady Melania Trump on social media this week for wearing a baseball cap emblazoned with the acronym “FLOTUS” during a trip to hurricane-ravaged Texas.
Claiming the “float” in “FLOTUS” was a subtle dig at hurricane victims, leftists pounced on yet another inane reason to attack the Trump family.
Bit insensitive Melania wearing that hat in a flood stricken region. FLOTUS. .."float us". And why does she feel the need to be labeled?

No First Lady should wear a #FloatUs hat to a flood.

Anybody else see the irony of Melania going to a flood zone wearing a hat that says "FLOTUS"?

She wore a "FLOTUS"hat to visit a flood. FLOAT US. To a region where people are floating in refrigerators to reach safety. All class.

Your "baseball" cap should have read "FLOAT AWAY"…Shameful display yesterday. How many victims of storm did you meet & speak to? NONE!

One liberal claimed Melania wore an “ironic onomatopoetic” hat, evidently unaware of what onomatopoeia means.

A faux White House account also tagged Melania in a photoshop advertising the cap.

Others weren’t buying it.
Omg, First Lady wears a FLOTUS Hat and is said to be inappropriate because it sounds like "float us" while in Texas. Give me a break.

How dumb can someone be? Her hat has the initials FLOTUS First Lady Of the United States & someone thinks she's wearing Float US on her hat?
