Stephen Colbert Mocks Melania's Jacket: Was 'Womp Womp' Your First Choice?

After Melania Trump wore a jacket with the words "I Really Don't Care" printed across the back, all the while making a trip to visit a child immigrant detention center, her office blasted back at critics who saw the jacket as an insensitive statement by saying there was no "hidden meaning".

Meanwhile, the federal public defender's office for the region that covers cases from El Paso to San Antonio said Thursday the U.S. Attorney's Office would be dismissing cases in which parents were charged with illegally entering or re-entering the country and were subsequently separated from their children. Surprisingly, it featured the following text on the back: "I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?".

First lady Melania Trump took a trip to the US-Mexico border on Thursday to tour an immigrant children's shelter, but her trip is getting attention not only for her action, but her wardrobe choice.

People shared on Twitter how shocked they were at the jacket's message and said they wondered why Melania wore the jacket at all, given the temperature and humidity in both D.C. and Texas, as well as the jacket's insensitive message.

For hours, press speculated today as to who her jacket was directed at.

I gotta agree w/@FLOTUS's publicist: there was no hidden message. "After today's important visit to Texas, I hope this isn't what the media is going to choose to focus on", she said. Spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham underscored that message in a tweet with the hashtags (hash) SheCares and (hash) ItsJustAJacket.

However, a tweet from President Trump suggested there was a message.

This isn't the first fashion choice by Melania that has irked the USA public, as she also wore stiletto heels to Texas after Hurricane Harvey.

She visited the Upbring New Hope Children's Center there.

Meanwhile, the mayors of about 20 USA cities gathered at a holding facility for immigrant children in the border city of El Paso.

A spokesperson for the first lady said, "It's just a jacket". The jacket belongs to the Zara's spring-summer 2016 season and is no longer for sale by the company, though a few of the jackets popped up online for resale at a moderate profit for sellers. He posted: "I'm confused about Melania's jacket".

Stephen Colbert couldn't believe the photo was real. I don't buy that she's that callous.

Others compared the event to the 2014 incident when then-President Barack Obama was bashed for wearing a tan suit, or the time in 2009 when conservatives criticized Michelle Obama for wearing a dress than exposed her bare arms. They all can't be that clueless.

Zara, a Spain-based company with a large presence in the United States and around the world, had no comment. The jacket belongs to the company's spring-summer 2016 season.

It was not the first time Melania Trump raised eyebrows for her fashion choices when out in the field: previous year she wore needle-thin high stiletto heels to observe the devastation wrought by Hurricane Harvey.
