Melania Trump's 'I really don't care' jacket causes a stir

Posted June 22, 2018

Melania Trump steps out of her motorcade before boarding an Air Force plane at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland on June 21, 2018, and traveling to Texas to visit facilities that house and care for children taken from their parents at the U.S. -Mexico border. "People that are supposedly on her side let her get on a plane with a jacket that read "I really don't care, do you?"

The first lady's jacket quickly made her a trending topic on Twitter.

Andy Richter added: "She probably thought she'd get congratulated for her humility for wearing a $39 jacket".

Images of crying, confused and terrified children being held in camps, caged in with wire caused a global outcry and protests that eventually led to American President, Donald Trump, signing an executive order ending the policy. And the color doesn't matter - it's what's written on the back in big white graffiti lettering: "I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?".

Just in case it wasn't clear the first time, FLOTUS chose to wear the jacket again as she deplaned at Andrews Air Force base upon her return to Washington D.C. It was 82 degrees and muggy when she arrived.

According to her spokesperson, Melania Trump made a decision to visit detention centres housing children because she deeply cares about the controversial issue.

Melania is under fire for the odd statement during a trip to visit a child immigrant detention center. There was no hidden message.

Mrs Trump sat alongside Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar at a table at Upbring New Hope Children's Center and heard caregivers explain how the children are well treated.

For hours, press speculated today as to who her jacket was directed at.

But Trump's fashion has often played a leading role during her tenure as first lady.

"These children as they are being separated by their parents are going to face the traumas that are part of post-traumatic stress disorder - anxiety, stress, depression, nervousness", psychologist Dr. Jeff Gardere told Inside Edition.

Stephanie Grisham told the media: "I'd hope you guys would want to cover her visit with children today".

She visited a schoolroom and chatted with about 20 young girls and boys.

The fierce criticism forced Trump to backtrack and sign an executive order on Wednesday to keep families together in detention during immigration proceedings. I think anybody with a heart would feel very strongly about it.
