Melania Trump wears 'I really don't care, do U?' jacket to border

  • First lady Melania Trump arrives to board a plane at Andrews Air Force Base Md. Thursday

Hours after the photo was taken, Grisham issued a second statement on her official Twitter account blasting the media. There was no hidden message. "Do U?" while en route to visit immigrant children held in detention centers in Texas. "She thinks that it's important that children stay with their families", she said.

Look. I get what Grisham is trying to do here.

The Trump administration has been enforcing a "zero tolerance" policy on illegal border crossers since early May. But that doesn't mean it's not a story.

Melania is an immigrant herself, having come to the United States on an "Einstein visa" (for people with "extraordinary ability") from Slovenia as a model then with a Camel cigarette ad in Times Square.

His tweet said: "I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U? written on the back of Melania's jacket, refers to the Fake News Media".

So let's agree to dispense with the whole "how dare you miss the real story" piece of this. By the time she had landed, she had taken off the jacket.

When is a jacket not just a jacket?

Colbert pondered why the First Lady's advisers didn't bother to, you know, advise her.




On Thursday, Melania Trump faced criticism over her choice of outerwear after making an unannounced visit to the Texas border near Mexico.

While Melania added: "I'm looking forward to meeting the children".

Now to the matter at hand. "Do you?" scrawled on the back when she boarded her plane to visit a child migrant detention centre. Her detractors? The media?

"But even if the stars and moon collide, I never want you back in my life". "That's great", she said. LOTS. She picked this one for a reason. But the move backfired, with the message being unclear, open to misinterpretation, going over the heads of people, and distracting from the positive objective of her trip.

We can probably argue for days as to whether she did this on goal, though it does raise eyebrows that if it weren't intentional, there would be someone in the presidential cadre who might have pointed out that a $40 Zara jacket with a potentially inflammatory message might not be the best outfit for a child prison.

East Wing communications director Stephanie Grisham told CNN in a statement that there wasn't any hidden meaning behind the jacket. "Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she not longer cares!"

There simply aren't coincidences like this in politics.

Trump blamed media for criticising Melania's clothes of choice for the visit.
