First Lady Melania Trump arrived in Texas Thursday morning for a surprise visit to children being held at the border by her husband’s administration – at exactly the same time as he claimed there was a ‘massive child smuggling industry’ at the border.
Dressed in a creme button down safari jacket, white pants, and sneakers, the First Lady arrived in a rainy McAllen, Texas, to tour two facilities where children are being held.
But when getting on a government plane at Andrews Air Force Base she wore a $39 Zara military jacket with the extraordinary message printed on the back in broad, white, paint-like strokes: ‘I don’t care, do u?’
Her spokesperson said it was just a jacket.
‘It’s a jacket. There was no hidden message. After today’s important visit to Texas, I hope this isn’t what the media is going to choose to focus on,’ Melania Trump’s communications director Stephanie Grisham told the DailyMail.com in a statement.
The media should not focus on the fact the First Lady wore an outfit which specifically says she does not care on her way to see children ripped out of the arms of their parents?
I have no fucking idea why she would choose to wear something like that, but I think it is definitely something worth discussing.
I mean is everybody around Donald Trump this incredibly tone deaf?
Update: Just like her husband she cannot be shamed.

Update 2: Worst attempt at spin ever!
“I REALLY DON’T CARE, DO U?” written on the back of Melania’s jacket, refers to the Fake News Media. Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!
