Melania Trump's jacket: 'I really don't care. Do U?'

In a baffling decision, the first lady wore a jacket that says "I don't really care, do u?" on the back for part of her journey.

The words were printed in white, in graffiti-style, on the jacket's back.

"It really bothered her to see this", President Trump said.

Following days of intense criticism of President Trump by the United Nations, foreign leaders and both Republicans and Democrats for the treatment of migrants at the country's borders, he has since said that he will sign an executive order stopping families being separated at U.S. borders. Whilst Melania's representatives reveal there is no hidden message behind the jacket, the POTUS offered his own interpretation that echoes his own sentiments about the media, and "fake news". "Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!"

According to President Donald Trump, the message is a jab at the major media outlets that largely ignore the first lady or choose negative angles for covering her.


As the first lady boarded her plane from Andrews Air Force Base, she wore an olive green jacket.

The first lady on Thursday visited migrant children in Texas amid the backlash against the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" immigration policy, which led to the separation of children from their families at the border.

In public appearances, the first lady has worn designs by Dolce & Gabbana, Del Pozo, Christian Dior, Emilio Pucci, Givenchy and Valentino, often with daringly high Christian Louboutin heels.

Far be it for me to criticise the sartorial choices of a First Lady of the United States - given I am a lower-than-dirt internet writer boy - but I simply must register my displeasure with this particular one.

"She's heard the recordings".


During her visit, she spoke alternately in English and through an interpreter, asking individual children in three classrooms where they were from.

Yesterday the world realized what Melania Trump has been trying to tell us since her husband announced his candidacy.

During her visit, she visited two facilities and shook hands with a group of detained children.

But upon returning to the White House she sported the jacket once more, despite stifling heat and humidity in the Washington region. "If media would spend their time & energy on her actions & efforts to help kids - rather than speculate & focus on her wardrobe - we could get so much accomplished on behalf of children", she lamented. She was told the children there, most of whom are between the ages of 12 and 17, are usually "distraught" when they first enter.
