What the Hell Was Melania Trump Thinking With This Zara Jacket?

Melania Trump took an "unannounced" trip to the Upbring New Hope Children's Center in McAllen, Texas, which is now holding 58 children aged 12-17, who have been separated from their parents. The first lady departed Andrews Air Force Base in a green khaki jacket, reportedly from Zara which costs $39, which read "I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?" on the back in white graffiti lettering.

Photos of the first lady boarding a flight to make the visit appear to show her wearing a jacket with the words "I REALLY DON'T CARE".

And let's also disregard Grisham's spin that a jacket is just a jacket.

Yet, the jacket Melania Trump wore on her way to McAllen quickly caused a stir.

The First Lady's spokesperson has said in a statement of the jacket, "It's a jacket...there was no hidden message".

It was not the first time Melania Trump raised eyebrows for her fashion choices when out in the field: previous year she wore needle-thin high stiletto heels to observe the devastation wrought by Hurricane Harvey. So yes, that's exactly what it said on the back of the first lady's jacket from retailer Zara. The first lady signed it as well.

She spoke to many individually through a translator, and as she walked out she told them: "Be kind and nice to each other, OK?"

During her trip, Mrs. Trump viewed the flags of various central American countries hanging on the wall, met with some children, and sat for a roundtable discussion with local officials. Well, today she didn't have to say much because her outfit said it all. While she may not troll the media in the same way as her husband does, she knows how to dress to get a reaction.

It is, however, unusual for Melania Trump to wear low-priced clothes when on public business. "(Much like her high heels previous year.)", Grisham said.

The youthful jacket sharply contrasts with the first lady's typically bold, foreign-flavoured and higher-priced wardrobe. Thank you to @SecAzar @HHSGOV for traveling w me today & the care you are giving these children in such a hard time.

Mrs Trump's husband credited her and his daughter Ivanka for persuading him to end the separation of children from parents who had entered the USA illegally. Since the Stormy Daniels stories began, Melania has been noticeably absent from her husband's side.
