Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio blasted critics of First Lady Melania Trump Friday, following her trip to visit migrant children in Texas, saying “Trump Derangement Syndrome” has become “an epidemic.”

Rubio defended Melania for being “a strong voice of compassion for migrant children” after media and liberal critics have continued to criticize her for wearing a jacket with the words “I really don’t care, do you.”

Melania was boarding a plane to McAllen, Texas, to visit illegal immigrant children when the jacket made its appearance.

“The vicious treatment of her over the last day is a reminder of how Trump Derangement Syndrome, where hatred for him justifies everything, has become an epidemic,” in a tweet. Concluding that there is “Totally lunacy everywhere!!!” (RELATED: Rubio Blasts Media Over Coverage Of Trump’s Historic Summit With Kim Jong Un)

The first lady’s spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham claimed there was no “hidden message” behind the jacket and said she hoped the media wouldn’t use a jacket to undermine her visit to work on an important issue.
