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.
While many were angered by the fact the first lady wore heels during the visit, numerous Twitter users feigned disgust that Melania also dared to display the term FLOTUS, short for First Lady Of The United States.
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?
