Melania Trump's Jacket Adds Fuel To The Current Political Fire

To travel, Melania wore a white hued shirt, skinny jeans and sneakers covered up by an olive green hooded jacket with a scrawled caption over the back that said, "I really don't care, do u?".

Her spokesperson, Stephanie Grisham, told CBS News in a statement that the writing on Trump's jacket was not meant to send a message. After all, she wore the jacket again deplaning later at Andrews - wore it unapologetically knowing all the hoo-ha it had caused, the confusion and umbrage, the distraction from what she said was her core message of compassion. "There's no message. I hope we can talk about her important visit with children today rather than her wardrobe choice". "Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!" he added on Twitter.

The images of Melania Trump sporting the olive green khaki jacket as she boarded a flight to Texas - which immediately went viral - surfaced as the White House struggles to calm global anger over the practice of splitting migrant children from their parents.

The most high-profile fashion criticism came when she wore stilettos to depart for a trip to visit Hurricane Harvey victims in Texas.

"Now here's an immigrant I'd LOVE to send back", comedian Billy Eichner tweeted regarding the first lady.

"It's a jacket. There was no hidden message", Stephanie Grisham told the Associated Press.

It's unclear who, exactly, first had the idea to say her coat's message was directed at the media.

Wow - Melania is wearing the jacket as she lands.

"Is the first lady of the unfamiliar with English that she doesn't know what the back of her jacket says?"

As an executive order signed by Trump on Wednesday works to undo absolutely nothing for the 2,300 migrant children already held in detention centers, the First Lady's satiric pandering serves no one and comes off as heartless.

The Daily Mail first reported that Trump was photographed on boarding a plane to visit the children wearing the Zara jacket.

This is not the first time that Melania Trump and her husband's administration have not appeared on the same page.

"I'd also like to ask you how I can help these children to reunite with their families as quickly as possible". "Thank you to @SecAzar @HHSGOV for traveling w me today & the care you are giving these children in such a hard time". She was told the children there, most of whom are between the ages of 12 and 17, are usually "distraught" when they first enter.

Trump often seems to be using her clothes as a sort of private diary, yet one that is parsed by millions who don't have the rest of the text.

In both cases, she changed into new outfits upon arrival: stylish, form-fitting jeans and a baseball cap.
