Melania Trump's jacket raises eyebrows for edgy message

Melania Trump Wears “I REALLY DON’T CARE, DO YOU?” Jacket to Meet with Kids in Detention Center

Whatever good PR was hoped to be cultivated from this excursion was dashed when a report leaked that the First Lady wore a jacket with "I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?" on the way to visit said children.

Trump, who works with personal stylist Hervé Pierre, often changes her clothing en route to a destination, so it's not known if she was alerted to the potentially offensive message on her jacket or if she had already planned to change into something else.

First lady Melania Trump boards a flight to Texas at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland on June 21.

When asked what message the first lady's jacket intends to send, spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham played down the meaning behind the coat. And, on Wednesday, she did the same, ditching the army green Zara jacket for a neutral buttoned-down look when she arrived at the Upbring New Hope Children's Center in McAllen, Texas.

However, it was what the First Lady wore while boarding the plane that got everyone's attention. "Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!".

During her visit today, Trump said she was "looking forward to meeting the children".

And one wonderful person turned the social media frenzy around the jacket into an opportunity to raise awareness for people in need.

She was engaged and asked questions throughout their discussion, thanking the representatives at the table for treating the immigrant children who have been separated from their families with "kindness" and "compassion".

Melania said earlier through her spokesperson that she "hates" to see families separated at the border. It's more like a dog whistle for Trump's anti-immigrant supporters: "I'm publicly supporting immigrants, but you really know I don't care".

The youthful jacket sharply contrasts with the first lady's typically bold, foreign-flavored wardrobe. Since the Stormy Daniels stories began, Melania has been noticeably absent from her husband's side. I don't believe she really meant to say she doesn't care.

"She will continue to update her husband", said Grisham, confirming what was reported first yesterday by CNN, that the first lady had been actively lobbying the president behind the scenes, encouraging him to stop the separation of children as swiftly as possible, either via legislative process or executive power.

The only other option is that Trump (and her staff) are so oblivious to her public persona - and that of her husband - that it wouldn't even occur to them that the message on the jacket might cause controversy.
