Melania Trump Wears 'I Really Don't Care' Jacket Before Texas Visit

Yep, the back of her jacket reads 'I Don't Really Care, Do U?'

Mrs Trump's husband credited her and his daughter Ivanka for persuading him to end the separation of children from parents who had entered the U.S. illegally.

Asked about the message, spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said by email that it was just a jacket.

Just in case it wasn't clear the first time, FLOTUS chose to wear the jacket again as she deplaned at Andrews Air Force base upon her return to Washington D.C. It was 82 degrees and muggy when she arrived.

Melania Trump's empathetic visit to the Mexican border risks being overshadowed by the unempathetic message on the back of her jacket.

Twitter users were quick to criticise the first lady's jacket faux pas and the not-so-hidden message.

Explosive volcanoes spawned mysterious Mars rock formations
Scientists first observed the Medusae Fossae with NASA's Mariner spacecraft in the 1960s but never fully understood how it formed. The formation, as it turns out, is particularly porous, with a density of about two-thirds that of most of the Martian surface.

Mrs Trump visited the Texas facilities where migrant children separated from their parents are being detained. "(Much like her high heels previous year.)", Grisham said. Privately, she also encouraged her husband to abandon the policy, according to people familiar with the matter.

Donald Trump dismissed the uproar over the coat, suggesting the message was instead directed at the "Fake News Media". Two-thirds of Americans have said in polls they oppose separating immigrant families, though a majority of Republicans say they support the President's approach.

Now, let's dispense with the fact that it seems like a slogan which might come emblazoned on a pencilcase in 2005 alongside a picture of Emily the odd, and consider the fact that she's wearing it en route to a place where children are being incarcerated. Grisham told reporters on the trip that the visit was the first lady's idea, and she planned the visit before the president signed his executive order. "Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!".

Melania Trump was among the first ladies who condemned the practice last week, and today she made her way to a shelter in McAllen, Texas, to meet with the displaced children and social workers who are tasked with their care.

And even Dictionary.com chose to publish a pointed tweet defining the word "indifference" and explaining its definition matched what it saw as the First Lady's message. "She thinks that it's important that children stay with their families". "I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?" was daubed on the back of her jacket in large white brush strokes.
