Melania Trump wears ‘I really don’t care’ jacket to visit DETAINED children


Stephen Colbert mocked Melania Trump's jacket on Thursday. "(Much like her high heels past year.)", Grisham said.

But the jacket hardly contained a "hidden message", the message was painted in huge white letters for everyone to see.

The wardrobe choice drew plenty of criticism on social media where many called it tone deaf, comparing it with Melania Trump's decision to wear stiletto heels during another one of her visits to Texas, that time to survey the damage wrought by Hurricane Harvey in 2017. As Trump boarded her plane to Texas, she was photographed wearing a jacket that read, "I really don't care".

A clothing company sold out of their charitable "I really care" jacket, which they created in response to the Melania controversy.

President Trump appeared to take his battle with the news media to a new level on Thursday, apparently using the First Lady's much-covered visit with detained immigrant children in a Texas border town as an opportunity to spell out his grievances with the press.

Pop City owner Rhonda Findley said she came up with the shirt because she's frustrated and upset with the tone of the current debate over immigration.

Melania Trump met with staff in McAllen where over 50 children aged 12 to 17 were housed.

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

By then the jacket was nowhere in sight.

Trump's unscheduled trip also included meetings with those involved with New Hope Children's Shelter. "She thinks that it's important that children stay with their families".

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

In one classroom, children were being educated on the July Fourth Independence Day holiday.

Third-graders welcomed Melania with a large paper American flag they'd signed taped to a wall.

It's not the first time the first lady's fashion choices have caused a stir. "So in the very beginning, I started interviewing people for the role".
