Makes sense to me.

Donald Trump, 72, was not happy about Melania Trump, 48, wearing her now infamous jacket with the words, “I don’t really care, do u” written on the back during her departure from visiting migrant children in Texas and it turns out that may have just been the reaction she was looking for. “Donald was furious over Melania’s jacket, but then, that’s why she wore it, to piss him off and to cause him maximum embarrassment,” a source close to Melania EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife. “Donald was left scrambling for an excuse as to why Melania would wear such a thing, especially in such a delicate situation, and the best he could come up with was blaming the ‘fake news.’ Meanwhile, when Donald quizzed her about the jacket, Melania played dumb, claiming she just grabbed a jacket to wear without realizing what was on it, which is obviously ludicrous, but how can he prove otherwise? It really was an amazing act of silent protest on Melania’s behalf to piss him off after his immigration separation policy made a mockery of her ‘Be Best’ campaign.”
I’m not super familiar with Hollywood Life so I don’t know how accurate their reporting is or how trustworthy their sources, but this sounds like as good of an explanation as I have heard for that clothing choice by Melania.
I have little doubt that Trump sent her out to put a caring face on his draconian immigration policy, and she likely resented it.
So rather than refuse and face his well-documented temper, she simply did what he asked and then “accidentally” sabotaged the whole thing.
I think the one reoccurring theme about the Trumps is that Melania hates his ass and resents being dragged into the spotlight just to feed his oversized ego.
I bet Trump thinks twice before using Melania to deflect criticism again.
