'Zero Tolerance' Remains in Effect as First Lady Visits Migrant Kids

On Thursday, the first lady traveled to Texas to visit migrant children wearing a hooded Zara jacket with the message "I really don't care, do u?". The jacket read, "I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?"

"DO U?" as she departed the White House to visit the shelter in Texas.

And her spokesperson maintains the jacket contained "no hidden message".

People are reacting to Melania Trump's controversial Zara jacket with a style statement of their own. "Do u?" While the jacket's wording is obscured in images, Trump's spokeswoman confirmed to CNN that she was wearing the jacket in question and that there was no meaning behind it.

"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.

On Wednesday, the president signed an executive order created to end the family-separation policy.

"It is unclear what the first lady thought the response would be", Mary Jordan, a national correspondent for The Washington Post, said of the jacket. "So they're escaping some pretty horrific situations", said Kurt Senske, the CEO of Upbring. While many of them are unaccompanied minors, six were reportedly separated from their parents at the border.


At the facility the first lady talked with staff about how the children were being treated and asked how she could help.

Melania Trump's wardrobe choice landed her husband in hot waters when she wore an insensitive jacket while boarding an Air Force plane to visit migrant children at the Texas-Mexico border on Thursday.

The first lady asked that the children be reunited with their families "as quickly as possible". Rumors have swirled from the moment he descended that escalator that Melania does not share her husband's thirst for attention, and has exhibited the kind of icy demeanor around him one might expect of a wife who has endured story after story of her spouse's infidelity and fascistic tendencies.

And sometimes, a first lady's choices can undercut her message, like when Michelle Obama drew scrutiny for sporting a pair of $540 Lanvin sneakers to volunteer at a food bank. A White House official followed up Wednesday, saying Mrs. Trump had been making her opinion known to the president that he needed to act to keep migrant families together.

It is, however, unusual for Melania Trump to wear low-priced clothes when on public business. She did not wear the jacket to the event.

She visited a schoolroom and chatted to children about what they were learning.
