Why Melania Trump's jacket has sparked outrage

Round table talks Melania Trump heard from doctors social workers and law enforcement at the Upbring New Hope Children's Center in McAllen Texas

As she headed back to her plane, she put the jacket back on.

Melania's spokesperson claimed that there was no hidden message in the jacket.

She later inspected the detention facility's schoolroom and chatted with about 20 young girls and boys who had school folders on their desks.

Trump said she wanted to learn more about how these children can be reunited with their parents "as quickly as possible".

She spoke to many individually through a translator, and as she left the room she told them: "Be kind and nice to each other, OK?"

All the media could talk about, however, was Melania's jacket, a $40 olive green raincoat from Zara that had the odd message written on the back.

In McAllen, Texas, for example, federal prosecutors unexpectedly declined to charge 17 parent immigrants on Thursday, with one saying "there was no prosecution sought" due to Trump's executive order aimed at keeping families together. Trump removed the jacket before deplaning, but the internet had already latched onto this paradoxical clothing choice, some finding it hard to believe.

"She told him "I am headed down to Texas" and he was supportive".

Trump's jacket allows her to take control of the narrative, with President Donald Trump's base doubling down on their defense of the first lady and giving the right new ammunition to slam the media.

Cue the outrage machine, Melania Trump - the complicit First Lady of Trumplandia - has walked into another fashion faux pas with what appears to be $39 Zara jacket emblazoned with with words, "I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?" on the back.

Melania was also criticized for a meeting with the queen of Spain, during which she said they discussed "ways to positively impact children", which came amid the height of the controversy surrounding the child separation policy.

Here's the thing: The jacket decisions made by the first lady aren't as big or as important a story as the crisis along the border.

The first lady did not explain the meaning of the message, though President Donald Trump said she it was directed at the news media.

So who was the target of that not-so-hidden message?

"Ma'am, I know how you can help", he said.

Oh oh oh I really don't care.

She did find herself a focus of a lot of press speculation during a recent disappearance from the public eye. Her fashion choice carried a baffling counter-message.

Another trip that deserves attention. I don't buy that she's that callous. Over 2,300 children have been taken away from their parents at the Southern border since mid-May and placed into facilities. So are the administrations Zero Tolerance for competence and basic humanity policies.
