Here’s The Powerful Thing Melania Was Doing While Media Was Freaking Out Over Her Jacket
Melania Trump shocked the media world Thursday with an unannounced visit to Upbring New Hope Childrens Center in Texas.
The center acts as a home for illegal immigrant children who entered the country illegally with their parent. The center is operated the Department of Health and Human Services. The first lady traveled to the center to observe the condition of the migrant children firsthand. While there, she held a roundtable with officials involved in the migrant crisis, toured the facility and visited with the children herself.
She was also presented with an American flag painted by the migrant children.
However, by far the biggest headline that came out of the visit concerned the jacket Melania wore to leave for the trip. The designer jacket had the words “I don’t really care. Do you?” printed on the back. The fashion choice sent media into a raging speculation spiral.
However, it is worth noting that while the media was speculating about the meaning of the jacket, Melania was doing something far more important. After visiting the children’s home, the first lady paused to meet with border enforcement agents and law enforcement officers.
For his part, President Trump tweeted that the jacket was a message to the media:
“I REALLY DON’T CARE, DO U?” written on the back of Melania’s jacket, refers to the Fake News Media. Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!
