Twitter users take swipe at Melania Trump over ‘I Really Don’t Care’ jacket
Melania Trump has been accused of distracting people from Donald Trump policy by wearing ‘I really don’t care’ jacket during her first visit to a shelter housing immigration children in Texas.
CAPE TOWN – First Lady Melania Trump’s visit on Thursday to a Texas shelter housing migrant children separated from their parents was overshadowed by a jacket she wore with the words: “I really don’t care, do u?” scrawled in white brush strokes on the back.
Melania Trump was shown in photos wearing the hooded green khaki jacket designed by fashion chain Zara as she boarded a flight.
She had it on again when she left the aircraft upon returning to Washington DC later in the evening.
Twitter users took to the social media network to express their anger.
One user asked: “What the hell kind of grown ass woman wears a jacket meant for an angry teenager who is trying to piss off her parents or her teachers to go take pictures with kidnapped refugee children?”
The price of the jacket also came into the spotlight as one user claimed the whole event was planned to distract the world from Donald Trump’s policy.
“How many $39 jackets do you think the wife of a supposed billionaire owns? This was Planned to distract us. I'm nearly certain of it.”
The president ordered federal agencies on Thursday to begin reuniting immigrant families at the US-Mexico border, but his efforts to roll back a policy that drew global condemnation were beset by confusion.
On Wednesday, when signing the executive order to reverse the policy on separating children from parents, Donald Trump cited his daughter and his wife as influencing his decision.
Let's just talk facts. Melania Trump flies to Texas to meet with immigrant children separated from their parents. Good for her. She wears a jacket that says "I really don't care." This is tone deaf at best. Why would anyone wear a jacket that says "I don't care" any time?— Tony Schwartz (@tonyschwartz) June 22, 2018
We can drill in the oceans again thanks to Trump. Now we know why Melania distracted us with that jacket yesterday.— Pharra Perry (@PharraPerry) June 22, 2018
Whenever something crazy happens with this adminstration, look closer and see what they were really distracting us from. Ooo something shiny!
I've seen comments asking why people want to give Melania Trump the benefit of the doubt over her "I don't care" jacket.— Lyanna Spearwife (@LyannaSpearwife) June 22, 2018
Maybe they're right.
Maybe I want to believe that she can't be as evil as her buffoon of a husband.
Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe there really was no hidden message.
Dear media and the frenzied, stop reacting to the jacket. @FLOTUS presented you with a shiny object...even the trip was a distraction from the EO that doesn’t help kids already detained, the budget that hurts us all, and the fact that Trump lies daily. She is complicit!— Chuck Cook (@ChazRCook) June 22, 2018
