Why Melania wore the jacket | Opinionated Woman

Jessica Tarlov argued that the president actually wants this type of coverage to dominate the news cycle, so he can criticize the media later for reporting on the jacket instead of her visit.

Colbert pointed out that the First Lady's spokesperson issued a statement asserting, "It's a jacket... there was no hidden message".

Was Melania trolling her husband? "Yesterday I opened my news app and saw Melania's jacket and it was just so appalling". Or was she channeling Marie-let them eat cake-Antoinette, as one pundit on MSNBC suggested? In an attempt to deflect criticism targetted at Melania for her sartorial choice, President Trump sought to link the quote on her dress with "fake news".

The first lady herself called for a political compromise to end the stripping of children from their parents - the result of the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy against illegal border crossings, in effect since May.

It was a week that saw Melania make a rare foray into politics, saying that she hated to see families separated.

And she's right: The message was loud and clear.

If you've been lucky enough to avoid the internet entirely these past 24 hours, it said "I really don't care, do U?" on it.

The first lady's jacket featured a quote that read, "I really don't care. Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!" he tweeted on Friday.

She also a eschews a "body person", a personal aide who typically travels with a president or first lady and acts as an assistant.

Her spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham tweeted on behalf of the First Lady, referencing her choice of jacket.

"It's a jacket, There was no hidden message".

Melania Trump has been accused of distracting people from Donald Trump policy by wearing "I really don't care" jacket during her first visit to a shelter housing immigration children in Texas.

You can take your words and all your lies. And it says it's donating 100% of the proceeds from its "I Really Care" line to RAICES. Trump determined that she didn't need to fill that role.

Another trip that deserves attention.

Melania broke her silence on the detentions which have seen immigrant children separated from their families earlier this week.
