Melania Trump's Jacket Choice Criticized

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

The photos of the first lady were snapped June 21, 2018, as she boarded a plane at Andrews Air Force Base in Prince George's County, Md.

"I like to dream that Melania chooses her ensembles just to piss off liberals", reads one representative tweet following the stiletto backlash.

A teen who bought the $39 hooded rain jacket (which I could no longer find on the Zara website) in a fit of fashionable rebellion wouldn't raise an eyebrow.

"It's a jacket. There was no hidden message", Grisham said in a statement.

Melania said earlier through her spokesperson that she "hates" to see families separated at the border.

"It's a jacket, There was no hidden message".

Melania Trump was welcomed by staff at the Upbring New Hope Children's Center as she made an unannounced visit Thursday to the facility that houses 58 unaccompanied migrant children. "You are a First Lady for Gods sake walking around with a jacket that says 'I really don't care.' This can't be for real". Unlike Melania, they really do care. At the G7 summit past year, she wore a floral coat worth $51,000.

"Why did @FLOTUS wear this tone-deaf jacket boarding the plane for this trip, allegedly to show she cares about the kids in these detention facilities?!" another person questioned.

UPDATE: Melania Trump's spokeswoman denies that the first lady was trying to send any message with the garment she picked out to wear during a highly visible public event. The first lady has spearheaded a "Be Best" initiative, whose primary aim is to promote healthy behaviors among children, but child health experts have said that the practice of taking children from their parents has detrimental effects to their long-term health.

The first lady nodded.

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. But I don't believe that neither she nor her staff realized the message she was sending. I don't really know - and don't even want to speculate.

Trump blamed media for criticising Melania's clothes of choice for the visit.

In the past, the First Lady has worn designs by Christian Dior, Givenchy and Valentino, Dolce & Gabbana, often paired with Christian Louboutin shoes.
