WasMelaniaTrump'sjackettonedeaf,orcalculated?

Today, our First Lady boarded her plane en route to Texas, to visit a children's detainment facility wearing a jacket with large words on the back stating, " I really don't care, do you?"

Is she really that tone deaf, and was her entire staff asleep at the wheel, or was this a calculated and divisive move on her part?
Remember, this is a woman who wore sky-high Manolo Blahnik stilettos to travel to a flood zone and a $1600 shirt to plant vegetables in the White House garden. I am struggling to see how she had a $39 Zara jacket with a questionable message just laying around that she grabbed randomly on the way out the door. If it were by Dolce and Gabbana, I would be more open to it being a major faux pas, rather than a literal and blatant statement that she knew the whole world would see. Thoughts?

    Melania is saying that she does what she wants and sometimes she gets the President to do what she wants? We used to call that pussywhipped.  Bravo Melania....babies have rights....CONVENTION ON THE RIGHTS OF THE CHILD. Bravo President Trump for understanding that babies are apolitical and not responsable for their parents crimes....I had to go to citizenship court at 17 because I was being deported back to the country of my birth. My lawyer won and I have 2 citizenships. Bravo Donald for knowing when Melania won't negotiate....we love you both....the children whose lives you both can save...children who struggled to come before you and test your kindness...when we are kind...we are at our finest.

    I think it was just a jacket more than anything else.  Either that, or it was directed at the media.  She also didn't wear it in the facility to visit the children.  It's just a jacket.  The media makes it out to be such a big deal.  Anything and everything that this President and First Lady does has been sliced and diced like no other President in history.  It's sickening to me that this country cannot put on their big boy/big girl pants, stop the hate mongering and work together to solve this nation's issues.  But then again, that would take many acting as adults.

    I’ve been wondering the exact same question! I think it was calculated. How could you be that unaware?

      Apparently, she wore it again on the way back. Her husband tweeted that it was a statement to the "Fake News Media." So, it seems like it was calculated and her people were trying to shrug it off. Bad decision for all parties. Even Fox news isn't condemning it.
