You Need this Jacket If You "Really Do Care"

AN OREGON clothing company has created an "I really care" collection of clothes to raise money for immigrants as a response to the Melania Trump jacket controversy.

The message on Trump's jacket sparked outrage and criticism from many who felt the jacket was an indirect message on the immigration crisis.

Or was it in fact a message to her husband?

My sense is that it was neither, and that it wasnt saying anything else either. Until that theoretical moment, we have the memes on one of the digisphere's most flawless blank canvases: Her green $39 jacket - one so five seasons ago, no less. She issued a statement on Sunday that she "hates to see children separated from their families". It was not a strictly congratulatory trip. She covers first lady Melania Trump full-time, and she traveled to Texas with her yesterday.

But to chalk up Trumps sartorial misstep to an inconsequential oversight would also be misguided.

The first lady's spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, downplayed the garment choice, however, writing in an earlier tweet that it was "just a jacket". She's very - we have to look for her non-verbal cues sometimes. "First Lady" written on it.

But these advantages also impose great responsibility.

The First Lady's appearance, which was kept secret until she touched down in Texas, came as the Trump administration, facing questions over the well-being and whereabouts of thousands of children, sought to put a more humane lens on its policies.

And that is what made jacket-gate such an unfortunate, frustrating and avoidable stumble.

Although Melania may have been silently dissing her husband with the jacket, her spokesperson tried to convince the public otherwise by saying the jacket choice had no hidden meaning and was simply just a jacket.

Her spokesman claimed that the jacket had not been meant to convey a statement, and urged journalists not to read anything into it.

KELLY: That is CNN White House reporter Kate Bennett. Perhaps she wanted to amplify the phrase on her army-green jacket; President Donald Trump said her coat's message was directed at the news media.

Mrs. Trump reached her decision to make Thursday's trip before the president's executive order to keep families together was in the works.

When most first ladies make a public gaffe, they tighten up their operation, become more willing to be managed by staff, and make sure not to make the same mistake again.

The US First Lady was pictured boarding her plane Andrews Air Base near Washington, DC on Thursday wearing the $39 Zara khaki coat. Maybe her staff did say something. "It really was an incredible act of silent protest on Melania's behalf to piss him off after his immigration separation policy made a mockery of her 'Be Best" campaign".

In the modern era, the East Wing has developed into an intensely strategic and media-conscious operation that serves to garner positive press coverage for the president and his policy agenda. For trips, particularly those overseas, the first lady's staff typically prepares a "wardrobe memo" as part of her schedule, McBride said.
