Melania Trump's Jacket Appears to Mock The Immigrant Children She Visited

We can probably argue for days as to whether she did this on goal, though it does raise eyebrows that if it weren't intentional, there would be someone in the presidential cadre who might have pointed out that a $40 Zara jacket with a potentially inflammatory message might not be the best outfit for a child prison.

"After today's important visit to Texas, I hope the media isn't going to choose to focus on her wardrobe", Stephanie Grisham told reporters.

'One interesting note here, even after this controversy erupted.Melania Trump put the jacket back on, just in time for the cameras, when she returned to Washington DC'.

The images of Melania Trump sporting the olive green khaki jacket as she boarded a flight to Texas - which immediately went viral - surfaced as the White House struggles to calm global anger over the practice of splitting migrant children from their parents.

A gold star to anyone who guessed that Stephen Colbert would mine comedy gold from the First Lady's weird message-embossed attire during Thursday's "Late Show" monologue, what with all the furor over children of aspiring immigrants being ripped from their parents and imprisoned in cages. "It's sad that we have an active and ongoing natural disaster in Texas, and people are anxious about her shoes", Grisham said. "She absolutely wanted to come", a spokesperson said of her trip south - but what about her outerwear?

But then Melania Trump wore it back home too.

On Wednesday, when signing the executive order to reverse the policy on separating children from parents, Donald Trump cited his daughter and his wife as influencing his decision.

"She told him "I am headed down to Texas" and he was supportive".

On Thursday morning, Melania Trump traveled to Texas to visit detained migrant children and their caregivers at the Upbring New Hope Children's Center.

In previous comments, Melania had showed concern and empathy for the migrant children separated from their parents that the president had not shown. Perhaps the Zara item was a stylist's attempt to pre-empt criticism, as with her python heels, that Melania's expensive ensembles when visiting traumatised people is uncouth."This was 100 percent her idea".

She wore the coat as she visited a facility housing migrant children separated from their parents. She has shown that she won't bow to public pressure or expectations about how she should comport herself as first lady. It's more like a dog whistle for Trump's anti-immigrant supporters: "I'm publicly supporting immigrants, but you really know I don't care". Just a week before, Trump's newest lawyer and spokesman, Rudy Giuliani, said that Melania believed Donald when he said he didn't have an affair with adult film star Stormy Daniels. "Thank you to @SecAzar @HHSGOV for traveling w me today & the care you are giving these children in such a hard time".
