First lady's shelter visit overshadowed by jacket

  • US First Lady Melania Trump said she wanted to see for herself what efforts are being made to resolve the family separation crisis on the US border

Former model Melania Trump is married to American businessman and 45th President of the United States, Donald Trump.

"Whatever I draw. [I hope] they take that thoughtfulness and hope", Teodoro said. Her spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham was clear that FLOTUS meant nothing by it.

Brushing off the controversy she received by wearing the jacket, Melania took to Instagram to post a heartwarming message of support for the affected families at the U.S. border. Just a week before, Trump's newest lawyer and spokesman, Rudy Giuliani, said that Melania believed Donald when he said he didn't have an affair with adult film star Stormy Daniels.

The controversial jacket was an olive green by Zara in white graffiti-style lettering worth $39. Noah made the same joke, but he followed it up with, "We could spend forever talking about how out of touch this makes Melania seem, but I don't really care". Maybe her staff did say something.

"In 2013, we set out to create a home for badass women everywhere", the three women who started the company write on the Wildfang website, where they say the company's employees "eat, sleep and breathe fashion and feminism". Kimmel said. "I'm sure they'll have the same reaction to this". During a 1996 visit to Japan, first lady Hillary Clinton "baffled" her host nation by wearing several all-black ensembles. "Covered in Black", was the headline of a story in the Sankei Shimbum that posited a few reasons for Clinton's color scheme: She was mourning the death of Commerce Secretary Ron Brown, marking the anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing, or she was pregnant and thought black was slimming. The first lady signed it as well.

Melania Trump's jacket mixes message during visit to detained immigrant children
And the color doesn't matter - it's what's written on the back in big white graffiti lettering: " I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U? ". As images of Mrs Trump surfaced online, social media was swamped with users in disbelief over her choice of jacket.

But Melania Trump's fashion has often played a leading role during her tenure as first lady. Surprisingly, it featured the following text on the back: " I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U? ".


IL reports first confirmed case of West Nile virus for 2018
Since its first human WNV case in 2002, the state has reported 2432 human cases, including 778 hospitalizations and 42 deaths. People older than 60 or with weakened immune systems are at higher risk for severe illness from the virus.


People have long tried to divine messages in first ladies' attire.

Others compared the event to the 2014 incident when then-President Barack Obama was bashed for wearing a tan suit, or the time in 2009 when conservatives criticized Michelle Obama for wearing a dress than exposed her bare arms.

But Mrs. Trump's declaration was, perhaps, more intentional.

But President TrumpDonald John TrumpCNN analyst Kirsten Powers: Melania's jacket should read "Let them eat cake" CNN's Cuomo confronts Lewandowski over "womp womp" remark Sessions says Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Peter Strzok no longer has his security clearance MORE contradicted that statement, saying in a tweet that the message referred to "the Fake News Media". It's more like a dog whistle for Trump's anti-immigrant supporters: "I'm publicly supporting immigrants, but you really know I don't care".

Trump's spokesperson criticized the media frenzy over the jacket, saying that "there was no hidden message in the first lady's wardrobe choice".
