First reported by the Daily Mail, Melania boarded the plane at Andrews Air Force
Base on Thursday wearing a Zara military jacket that says, in quite large
capital letters, I REALLY DONT CARE, DO U?
Although the message could really not be any clearer, Jezebel reached out to the
White House for comment as to what this, again, very pointed fashion statement
could possibly mean, and why she decided to make it while visiting kids who are
in prison-like conditions because of the Trump administrations policies. The
White House did not immediately respond to Jezebel, but ABC reporter Meridith
McGraw shared FLOTUS spokeswoman Stephanie Grishams statement: Its a jacket.
There was no hidden message. After todays important visit to Texas, I hope this
isnt what the media is going to choose to focus on.
NEW: @FLOTUS spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham when asked what message the first
lady's jacket intends to send: "It's a jacket. There was no hidden message.
After today's important visit to Texas, I hope this isn't what the media is
going to choose to focus on."

Shes right, the message isnt hidden. Its stated very clearly, in bold, bright
white capital letters!
By the time the plane landed in Texas, Melania was no longer wearing the jacket.
Who can say why? She visited children detained at the Upbring New Hope
Childrens Center, asking them to work hard, study hard and to be kind and
nice to each other just one day after Donald Trump signed a cruel executive
order seeking to detain kids and their parents indefinitely. She reportedly also
met with staff in order to learn how I can help to be sure these children
reunite with their families as quickly as possible.
At the end of her visit, our First Lady reportedly ignored a pool reporters
question about her view on Trumps zero-tolerance policy, and left lasting words
of wisdom to kids locked up due to her administration: Good luck, she said.
