We are back! Sporting pussy hats, communicating our messages, and standing up against mean-spirited Trump and his ilk.

Here are some of my favorite signs this year:

Uh-oh

That’s right!

A vest in Houndstooth is just the right touch on the little marching girl.

Neither can November 2020.

The cap, the sweater, the message. Nice! (This guy really is nice … he thanked every one of the volunteers along our route.

Melania Trump’s poor choice of shoes last week caught a lot of attention. Less attention was paid to the cap she sported after landing in Houston to tour the flooded disaster zone caused by Hurricane Harvey. (Actually, they didn’t tour anything.)

Stepping down from Air Force One, Lady Trump had switched out of the heels and into a pair of snow white sneakers and donned a black cap with white stitching spelling out FLOTUS (First Lady of the United States). Another poor choice given she was going to a city completely underwater! The first thing that came to my mind when I saw her on television was – FLOAT! As in Houston residents floating in flooded cars, on flooded streets … floating inside flooded houses.

It read to me like a bad joke but I suppose that she didn’t get the pun. No one else on that plane got it either? In any case, it reflects the carelessness and insensitivity of the Trumps.

For the record I don’t like to criticize other women, but I expect more from FLOTUS and Melania just isn’t the role model she should be. Indeed, where has she been the last eight months?

Diana has been in the press a lot these past weeks as we approached the 20th anniversary of her death. The princess sported Oxford shirts in 1997 as she toured active land mine fields and visited land mine victims in Angola.

But she left her tiara at home.
