Was this Melania Trump's 'Let Them Eat Cake' Moment?


Mod: It probably wasn't the best fashion statement for the First Lady to making right about now. Of course, that is assuming Melania even understood the impression she might be leaving with those who would be reading the back of her specially embossed Zara military jacket. But wouldn't you think that there might have been an image handler somewhere in her retinue who could have advised her against wearing it?

Melania Trump's 'I Really Don't Care' Jacket Did Not Go Over Well (Time Magazine link): First Lady Melania Trump drew a storm of controversy on Thursday when she made an unannounced visit to see the conditions of migrant families and children being detained at the U.S.-Mexico border.

But the outcry was not about the content of her visit so much as her attire. As Trump boarded her plane to Texas, she was photographed wearing a jacket that read, “I really don’t care. Do U?” While she was not wearing the jacket when she landed in McAllen, Texas, according to CNN, the First Lady’s choice of attire struck many as insensitive. Her husband’s administration has received widespread criticism in recent weeks over its “zero-tolerance” immigration policy, which has led to thousands of children being separated from their parents at the border while the adults are charged with illegally crossing into the U.S.

After the intense backlash, President Donald Trump signed an Executive Order on Wednesday reversing the administration’s stance on family separation and saying families should be detained together. But immigrants’ advocates say this does not solve the problem and have accused the administration of not caring about the immigrants it is detaining.

When the internet took notice of Melania Trump’s jacket on Thursday, her communications director responded by saying there was no “hidden message.”

“It’s a jacket. There was no hidden message. After today’s important visit to Texas, I hope the media isn’t going to choose to focus on her wardrobe,” the First Lady’s Communications Director Stephanie Grisham said in a statement.

Sorry Stephanie, but if you are the First Lady and wear something controversial written on your back while on your way to a highly publicized photo-op, people are going to talk. And there was an explosion of Internet activity about all of this. Here are a few of that Tweets that were making the rounds yesterday.


Even the fashion forward lexicographers at Dictionary.com got in on the excitement.

  2. As I posted yesterday when I saw it on the news, I'm wondering if this is a ploy to see how far the Prez can push his base to keep supporting him, and for our do-nothing Congress to do just that - do nothing. Is this her version of "I could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and still get elected"?

  10. I was wondering about the temperature. 81 degrees is too hot for a jacket. She chose to wear it to make a statement. I think she was strongly pressured to go as a way to create good optics for the White House. Her choice probably means she will be left alone and not sent out to provide cover in the future. She really does not care and does not want to fake it. Her son is the only person I’ve seen her be warm to.

  15. Trump Claims There Are 'Phony Stories Of Sadness And Grief' At The Border

    President Donald Trump has fully embraced a far-right conspiracy theory that the images and audio of devastated children distraught after being ripped from their parents arms are fake.

    In a tweet Friday morning, President Donald Trump called the media coverage of traumatized immigrant children and parents “phony stories of sadness and grief,” orchestrated by Democrats for political gain. Then, in an unhinged twist, he defended the validity of the images because they existed during the Obama administration, but his predecessor “did nothing about it!”

    Earlier this week, conservative commentator Ann Coulter said during an interview on Fox News that the crying children recently separated from their families were “actors.” She warned the President to not “buy” the show. He seems to have listened.

    Trump’s tweet comes just days after Trump appeared to believe the stories of grief-stricken families, signing an executive order Wednesday that called for the detainment of families together, but sought to abolish a federal protection that limits how long a child can be held in detention.

  16. I was at a party last Saturday and met a teacher at the prep school Melania’s son attended. Controversy there because evidently he is borderline spectrum and couldn’t meet the math requirements to stay enrolled. Instead of taking him out and placing him in a school better suited to his needs, which is standard practice, they instead created a whole math curriculum just for him so they can keep the Trump money flowing. And trump could keep the prestigious name on his future resume.

  18. IF she had any sense of decency she would come out publicly and apologize for wearing that jacket. No excuses like Trump, just a straight out apology. But she truly does not care. My guess?

  19. Those who try to spin it as nothing but an innocent fashion choice or some sort of statement to her husband are spinning nonsensical BS.

    The so-called first lady, who reportedly came to the US and worked here illegally as a high paid model before getting her papers, really does not give a damn about anyone but herself.

    She and her husband are a perfect match, like with like.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Did Melania work here illegally before she got her papers? To get her papers, was she required to state whether or not she had already worked here, obeyed US laws, or committed any illegal acts? Did she perjure herself on any paperwork? Are false statements to obtain citizenship grounds to revoke citizenship? If so, should she be separated from her child per her husband's policies? What about her "chain migration" parents?

    5. Ahem. Many presented themselves at the International Border crossing in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas asking for asylem as per international treaty. The International Red Cross should come and inspected these detention camps. None of the children, no mater the age, should have been transported for "safe" keeping such distances from the point where their parents were incarcerated. This IS different from a resident in the US being sentenced to detention or jail--their children would be in the US in reach of some family member or care giver. That was not the case for the nursery workers in one mid-western state, where 110 were rounded up and hauled off and their children had no one to come get them from school or day care. This is Inhumane.

  36. Keep up the selective outrage...you're making more Trump voters every day.

    Trump’s Immigration Policies Are Actually Pretty Popular

    When asked which policy they prefer for how to handle families that are stopped for crossing the border illegally, two-thirds of the 1,500 surveyed said they support detention for lawbreakers and less than 20 percent responded that they support previous presidential administrations’ policy of letting the lawbreakers enter the country with a promise to return for a later court date. The poll was taken June 17-19, at the height of media outrage over the policy.

    When given a choice for how to handle illegal border crossing arrests, some 44 percent of Americans chose “hold families together in family detention centers until an immigration hearing at a later date.” Another 20 percent of U.S. adults chose detention options that would separate families. Only 19 percent chose to return to the policy of allowing people who cross the border illegally to go without detention on the promise they’d return for a court hearing at a later date.

    The Economist/YouGov poll shows an American electorate fare more serious about border enforcement than what the media conversation would indicate.

Hernandez said he has still not been in direct contact with his wife Sandra because he does not have a way of communicating. Denis, who works as a captain at a port on the coast of Puerto Cortes, explained that things back home were fine but not great, and that his wife was seeking political asylum.

      When asked about his views on Trump's border policy, Denis said, “ It violates human rights and children's rights. Separating children from their parents is just wrong. They are suffering and are traumatized. “

    Most voters blame the parents of the separated children at the border for the latest illegal immigration crisis, not the federal government.

    When families are arrested and separated after attempting to enter the United States illegally, 54% of Likely U.S. Voters say the parents are more to blame for breaking the law. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 35% believe the federal government is more to blame for enforcing the law. Eleven percent (11%) are not sure.
