Photo showing Melania Trump in 'don't care' jacket is real

Melania Trump boarded a flight to Texas wearing a green military-style jacket (pic on the right taken from fashion website) emblazoned with the words: "I really don't care, do u?".

The first lady's spokesperson told Newsweek earlier in the day that "There was no hidden message", behind the jacket.

Then she wore it *again* when she deplaned back at Andrews Air Force Base after the trip - and after the wave of initial outrage. She was on her way to visit immigrant children being held in a shelter at the border in McAllen, Texas.

"Nothing comforts a federally-abducted refugee child like a photo op with a Slovenian model wearing a coat that says she doesn't give two c--s about your misery", comedian Jim Carrey wrote along with an image he drew of Trump with a crying child.

On "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and "Late Night with Seth Meyers", both comics picked at a statement from the First Lady's spokeswoman, in which she assured reporters that it was "just a jacket".

In a few minutes, people started spoofing the jacket and adding their own messages.

'Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!'




Somehow Melania's meme'd outerwear is more believable than what she actually wore. By the time she had landed, she had taken off the jacket.

Some leaders of progressive groups and celebrities known for their liberal views also criticized the First Lady's jacket.

In a dramatic reversal of his previous stance, Mr Trump signed an executive order to keep families together at the border.

The first lady helped persuade the president to end his policy of family separation at the border, White House officials have said. The first lady has spearheaded a "Be Best" initiative, whose primary aim is to promote healthy behaviors among children, but child health experts have said that the practice of taking children from their parents has detrimental effects to their long-term health.

Or maybe it was a different message to the media - "I really don't care what you think [of me]". Or someone picked this one for her for a reason - and she went with it. Last August, the media and public discussed the high-heeled shoes she wore to fly to Texas to view Hurricane Harvey destruction.

It is, however, unusual for Melania Trump to wear low-cost clothes when on public business.
