Writing on Melania Trump’s jacket causes controversy before border visit

Melania Trump's getting destroyed on social media for wearing what most would consider a tone-deaf jacket. considering she wore it on her way to visit child detention centers in Texas.

This is now a very sensitive topic to many Americans and the fact that Melania wore this jacket to meet with those immigrant children who have been separated from their parents, due to Donald Trump's policies, is very offensive.

A spokesman for Mrs Trump shot down claims the jacket was meant to make a statement, saying: 'It's a jacket. She put the jacket back on as she disembarked from her plane back at Andrews Air Force Base near Washington. When she arrived in McAllen, Texas the first lady had changed out of the controversial garment into a cream button-up safari-style jacket. Now instead of the images of kids behind bars, viewers were watching the first lady eager to fly south and learn about their plight.

People keep holding out for one of the two main Trump proxy women, Melania and Ivanka, to be more than the black accessories they have been and that, quite frankly, has been proven to be too much. "She was told twice a week, but the official noted that there is a process to verify that the persons they are communicating with are their families".

"(Much like her high heels last year)" Grisham added. Disagree? Ask yourself whether the media would have (and should have) covered Michelle Obama wearing the exact same jacket.

"We all know they are here without their families and I want to thank you for your hard work, your compassion, and your kindness you are giving to them in these difficult times", Trump told the staff members.

Monthly movie ticket subscription rival MoviePass doesn't allow its members to purchase large format or 3D tickets, just 2D. Since MoviePass slashed its monthly fee, questions have mounted over the long-term viability of its economic model.

Critics assumed that she was making a statement about the immigrant children who were separated from their families.

After the White House announced its "zero-tolerance" policy in April, over 2,000 children have been separated from their parents. She usually lets her husband, Donald Trump, do most of the talking.

Here's the thing: The jacket decisions made by the first lady aren't as big or as important a story as the crisis along the border.

To who? Her husband?

In a subsequent tweet, Grisham said the visit impacted the first lady "greatly".

Yep, the back of her jacket reads 'I Don't Really Care, Do U?'
