Colbert Dissects The ‘Not So Hidden’ Message Melania Trump’s Jacket Conveyed

Right after her PR stunt. The phrase caused many to ask: Is that the message the first lady should be showing the world in a time like this?

She posted a video of her visiting the shelter and meeting children and people who worked there.

You just can't make this stuff up.

Melania should give "I REALLY DON'T CARE" flack jackets to her husband, Jeff Sessions, Stephen Miller, John Kelly, Kirstjen Nielsen and Alex Azar, because they deserve all the flack that's coming at them.

"The average length of stay, currently, is between 42-45 days", the staff member said. And it came after the First Lady's Communications Director, Stephanie Grisham, said nothing should be read into the jacket message. Zilch. Nada. Nothing. I think she was purposely wearing the jacket because the White House wanted her to wear it. Why?

The wardrobe choice drew plenty of criticism on social media where many called it tone deaf, comparing it with Melania Trump's decision to wear stiletto heels during another one of her visits to Texas, that time to survey the damage wrought by Hurricane Harvey in 2017.

Trump wore a green, hooded military style jacket from Zara that read "I really don't care, do u?" on the back. On Wednesday, President Trump signed an executive order calling for an end to the separation of families, but it is still unclear what will happen to the children who have already been split apart from their families and, in some cases, sent to facilities around the country. But it wasn't long before the first lady's controversial jacket threatened to overshadow the entire goodwill junket to the border.

"That coat was such a distraction", she said, asking why no one in the White House thought about it overshadowing her visit.

Melania Trump sat alongside Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar at a table at Upbring New Hope Children's Center and heard caregivers explain how the children are well treated.

Melania broke her silence on the detentions which have seen immigrant children separated from their families earlier this week.

She had it on again when she left the aircraft upon returning to Washington DC later in the evening.

A 2-year-old Honduran asylum seeker cries as her mother is searched and detained near the US-Mexico border on June 12, 2018 in McAllen, Texas.
