First lady Melania Trump made a surprise visit to the detention centers a day after President Trump signed an executive order ending the separation of undocumented families. But, liberals made a big deal after Melania was photographed boarding a plane to visit the immigrant children wearing a jacket that read “I really don’t care. Do U?” across the back.
I honestly thought this was the Onion.
It's not. https://t.co/Ume21zIGra

However, Melania wore it from Washington to Texas. When she arrived in Texas and deplaned she had already changed (which is how she remained for the rest of the trip). Someone must have noticed! But unfortunately, the so-called journalists blow it out of proportion!
This is why, on Thursday, First lady Melania Trump’s spokeswoman slammed media coverage of a jacket the first lady wore as she made the trip to visit immigrant children held in detention centers.
“It’s a jacket. There was no hidden message,” first lady communications director Stephanie Grisham said in a statement. “After today’s important visit to Texas, I hope the media isn’t going to choose to focus on her wardrobe.”
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."

In a Twitter post, Grisham wrote: “Today’s visit w the children in Texas impacted @flotus greatly. If media would spend their time & energy on her actions & efforts to help kids – rather than speculate & focus on her wardrobe – we could get so much accomplished on behalf of children. #SheCares #ItsJustAJacket”

Melania visited a children’s detention center in Texas on Thursday in the midst of drama surrounding children being separated from their parents, who crossed the border illegally.
“We all know they are here without their families, and I want to thank you for your hard work, your compassion, and your kindness you’re giving them in these difficult times,” she said.

It’s a jacket! If a liberal had it on they would be thrilled with the message I’m sure…hypocrisy at it’s finest!
However, this only proved that the nightly news on the MSM tonight will dwell on your jacket instead of Melania’s meeting. It will show how the MSM constantly (especially the last couple of weeks) covers stuff they can put a twist on instead of REAL news.
Well done Melania in proving a point.
