This is the jacket that Melania Trump wore to visit immigrant children held in detention centers

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 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 find the jacket appalling. The third wife could not be a ruder person. She is certainly not worthy of her position just as that freak of a husband is not worthy to be president. Just imagine if Michelle Obama had ever chosen to wear a jacket with such a tone-deaf and offensive message! Republicans would have been outraged and rightly so. How the president, vice president, first lady, and vice president’s wife appear and behave is important. This is what people see and how they perceive Americans to be. And those impressions are remembered.

    PS I read this afternoon (Daily Kos) that Trump tossed two hard candies at Angela Merkel as he rose to walk out of the G7 meeting without signing the official statement. He said something like “Now you can’t say I never gave you anything.” That’s the way an impudent child would act! And this man is president of the United States! Add that to the third wife’s rudeness today and you get a pair of spoiled and obnoxious children living in the White House.

    wearing that coat would seem to confirm she really didn’t want to go, but was made too….all this trip was was a photo op to create more propagana

    ‘“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!

      Obviously, the Trump White House (including Trump himself) is upset about the “optics” of the jacket. Even if the purpose of the jacket’s message (and I don’t believe it for a minute) was to insult the media, it was the worst possible choice for such an outing. Any other first lady doing something so crass and vulgar and insulting would be tarred and feathered by the media for it. And rightly so. So Trump had better put his little fingers to better use than twittering in defense of the indefensible.

    The jacket costs $39 online. Is there anyone out there who would believe she’d lower herself the wear “off the rack”? Plus, it’s hot and humid here in DC today. No jacket necessary.

        Anon @ 3:00 P.M. – it definitely IS a statement; to fat-boy himself! The gold-digger knows she was had, and is rebelling! When she had her recent “complications”, didn’t her “office” say she could not fly for a month?? If so, what the fuck was she doing on a plane?? “Complications”, my ass!! She had a psychological break-down, and has finally realized that he’s not into her any more! In her pea-brained mind (I say that because she was complicit with the “birther” bullshit as well!), she is sending fatso a message that she doesn’t give a shit about him any more! If Mr. Avenatti succeeds in nullifying Ms. Daniels’ NDA, the third wife might just tell him to shove his non-existent money up his ass, while knowing damn well that she could earn a hundred-fold more with a sordid, no-holds-barred tell-all book!!

          No it was the donald that said she couldn’t fly after her really, really big operation that took 4 hours. He said it to that Duchey guy or what ever that moron from fox is called at the press thingy on the WH lawn.

      I was just saying to my father the other day that they must have had this planned for a while since they managed to get all those concentration camps set up awfully fast.

      I have a feeling that trump is going to do something else very nasty, to get the attention off of this, hopefully the media stays on the story.

      Also I read there are plans to demonstrate in DC and around the country on June 30th.

    “The Daily Mail reports that the jacket is from Zara. The company did not immediately respond to HuffPost’s request for comment, nor did Trump’s stylist, Hervé Pierre.

    Clearer photos of the jacket can be seen on the blog Crazy Loves Fashion from a post in 2017. The blogger’s jacket bears remarkable similarities to the one Trump was wearing.

    A person familiar with the situation who did not want to be identified said he could clearly see lettering on the front of Trump’s jacket that matches that of the Zara jacket seen in the blogger’s images.

    Reactions to the jacket have exploded on social media:”

    “Despite furious public outcry over the jacket, Melania put it back on for her return trip to Washington, D.C. and was pictured wearing it again upon her arrival back at Andrews Air Force Base”

    Trump’s spin is absurd. Is there no one who cares (yes, cares) about decency and propriety in the White House? This First Lady evidently does not care about decency or she would not have worn the objectionable jacket upon return. The Teumps are incapable of grasping why the jacket was a bad choice. The trip was for optics, quick and staged in the best place available not the makeshift and over flow detention centers.
    I hope past First Ladies go to Texas to thoroughly tour the conditions.

  11. Jessie June 21, 2018 at 5:18 pm

    Been thinking about this all day. I think it refers to her husband’s philandering ways and the me too movement. She and a lot of conservative women do not find his behavior disgusting. She like many others have benefited from being marginalized and are just fine with it, Have we forgotten the books written by anti-feminists in the 1970s who took full advantage of misogynist behavior by idiots like Trump? There are unfortunately women who do not see themselves as part of any movement and are as vile and opportunistic. I see Melania Trump entirely in this light. When asked if Trump married her for her looks she answered she married him for his money.

    • Anonymous June 21, 2018 at 5:31 pm

      That is the funniest comment of the day, you really think she would have the guts to make a statement about her husbands philandering ways on a trip to a supposed detention center. She isn’t that bright.

      • Jessie June 22, 2018 at 9:08 pm

        I disagree entirely with your comment. Nothing is more irritating to Melania than her husband’s obvious contempt for their marriage and the headlines it generates. She is one angry woman. She clearly didn’t run out and purchase this jacket just before the trip to the border. Her marriage is hell on earth!

    • Anonymous June 21, 2018 at 5:52 pm

      Yeah, pardon my language, but that was a big FUCK YOU. What a third wife, huh, she is certainly no “lady.”

    There was no hidden message.
    Obviously you moron, it was written on her jacket!!!

    I don’t care what trump says, it is all lies, do u? they could sell millions of those jackets.

    Melanomia has gotten a free ride so far, after a year plus all she has come up with is a broken English slogan for her “project” and the press has pretty much left her alone. so her and her husband can sit home and have their pity party. They are right, the majority of Americans do not like them. They are vulgar, lack class and empathy for those less fortunate. Sorry Melanomia, you can wear all the designer clothes you want but money does not but class.

    This sums it up perfectly

    ” In an illuminating piece, The King and Queen Of Cruelty, Charles M. Blow of the New York Times called Melania “tone deaf” and “Marie Antoinette-ish.” At the very least.

    It’s not that Trump and his family don’t understand the downside of imposing even the smallest amount of stress on children. It’s just that they value different children in differing degrees.

    Melania Trump clearly thought that it was too traumatic to move the couple’s young son to Washington during the school year, so she stayed with him in New York, costing taxpayers tens of millions of dollars for security.

    As Ms. Trump told Us Weekly in January 2016 about talking to the couple’s son about potentially moving to Washington:

    “At that age, it’s hard to explain to them. … I tell him: Take it day by day, enjoy your life, live your meaningful life as I like to do. … Of course, at that age, every child would worry, especially if they love school, if they love friends; they don’t want to lose that. Everything is a new opportunity and it brings new friends and a new school. You never know, you never know what happens. Enjoy it day by day, live your life and don’t stress yourself.”

    No, please don’t stress yourself. Stress is for poor people, like immigrants.

    I’m sick and tired of people making excuses for this woman. The handwriting has been on the wall for some time and now it’s on the coat. The King and Queen of Cruelty are rich white trash, they have no class and they have no honor. She might be trolling Trump from time to time, but today she trolled us.

    • Anon June 21, 2018 at 8:22 pm

      I had forgotten that Melania didn’t want Barron to move to the White House because it was too traumatic for him to move mid school year. What a hypocrite! And that jacket is not only inappropriate and tone deaf, but it’s also butt ugly! It’s something a snotty middle school girl would wear. An almost 50 year old First Lady shouldn’t be wearing it ANYWHERE.

    • Beaglemom June 22, 2018 at 4:48 am

      The Obama girls were not that “traumatized” by moving to Washington. They were promised a puppy and the promise was kept. I’ve never understood the tippy-toeing around Barron. Sasha Obama was younger than he when she moved to the White House. She and her sister left friends and relatives behind in Chicago. Families move sometimes. The Trump excuses always sounded like a cover up.

    • Anonymous June 22, 2018 at 1:58 pm

      Yes, I am beginning to think it was her heiness that didn’t want to move and used Barron as an excuse.

      Also wasn’t it the day before she was in a photo with the King and Queen of Spain wearing a sleeveless dress outside, so what’s up with the jacket.

      Also who wears an army style jacket to visit children in cages?

      Yes, and considering it is officially summer, why is she wearing a coat to begin with? Which leads me to believe it was done on purpose.

    Republican shreds Melania Trump for ‘I really don’t care’ jacket when visiting migrant children: ‘An unforgivable moment’

    …..David Jolly, a Republican former congressman from Florida, was irate about the jacket.

    He said it’s time for the media and others to stop treating Melania Trump with kid gloves.

    “This was an unforgivable moment for the first lady and the first family,” he said. “Not just because of what happened in the initial moment where, ‘Wow, did she wear this?’ There was intrigue. And, frankly, I was one who dismissed it the first time we saw it, as she was departing.”

    Then Melania Trump wore it upon her return—despite sweltering heat.

    “To wear it on her affirm that this was a political message, This was not a fashion statement. This was a political message where she said ‘I don’t care.’” he said. “She was going to the border, where her husband had ripped families apart and wearing a jacket that said ‘I don’t care.’ …she does not deserve latitude on this because she doubled-down after questions were asked.”

  22. Gindy51 June 22, 2018 at 3:02 am

    The company that makes that jacket has tons of Nazi white supremacist shit for sale on their site. THAT was the message. She is targeting those who know who made that jacket and telling them she is a okay with whatever is done to those not white. Period. She just doesn’t fucking care no matter what she says.

  23. Alan Sherman June 22, 2018 at 5:35 am

    Maybe this has been mentioned, and I haven’t checked the weather in D.C., but I at least presume Texas is hot as hell this time of year. What does she need a jacket for anyway?

  24. anonymous June 22, 2018 at 9:29 am

    Did she actually go to one of the holding pens and SEE a child, any child? TOUCH a child? Show any kind of emotion her plastic face might manage to squeeze out? I haven’t seen any pics of her with the kids; has anyone? You know who would be been holding and comforting and showing true outrage? Michelle. And that’s just one of the reasons why I love and miss the Obamas/

    • Anonymous June 22, 2018 at 2:01 pm

      In the long run maybe those kids were better off not having a visit, that face of hers is enough to scare anyone!!

    These people are the worst example of Americans, period, full stop.
    Melania deserves no quarter on this jacket debacle, and I don’t really care who she was thumbing her nose at. It’s FUCKING SUMMER, people, there is no need for any jacket, at all, between the swelter of DC and the immolation of TX. If the bitch gets chilly on the plane, you’d think she’d put on a throw.
    Calculating, scum of the earth. All of them. She doesn’t care one tiny bit about the poor brown people.

    • Lewsiffer June 22, 2018 at 4:15 pm

      Plus, Melanoma is a whore who came here and got citizenship under false pretenses THEN tagged her family on with her in what we like to call “Chain Immigration”.

      She’s a terrible person and karma paid her back in spades with that special needs kid she pooped out for the Cheeto.

      • Anonymous June 22, 2018 at 5:29 pm

        My thoughts exactly Lewsiffer at 4:15. However, I do think Malaria had lil’ Barron strictly for herself and to tie herself to Trump. A spouse can divorce you, but a kid has (some) ties forever. Look at Tiffany Who(?). Currently allowed in the fold for photo ops of the drumpf klan. IMO Ivanka is the only one of his kids that the Orange Oaf gives a damn about.

  26. Anon June 23, 2018 at 8:25 am

    Curious. Just saw a Be Happy property services commercial. So who owns the “shell” company that Malaria names?
