As a former high-fashion model, one would think that Melania Trump would be more conscious with her fashion choices, but alas, ignorance seems to have prevailed.
On Thursday, Trump was seen donning a Zara jacket from last season worth US$39 as she boarded her plane to visit an immigrant children’s shelter in McAllen, Texas. The back of the jacket read “I really don’t care. Do U?”, which sparked a huge conversation online about her less than savvy choice.
Given how unmistakably horrendous as her fashion faux pas was, we have a few suggestions as to how she could improve her wardrobe.
Since she finds the paparazzi to be pests:
For days when she feels like reminding the masses that Big Brother is always watching:
And lastly, when she feels like being honest:
Melania (@flotus) we would love to send you this free top. We feel it’s much more appropriate for all your outings and so-call First Lady duties. You have embarrassed the nation and anyone who parents a child and especially those who you were here to serve. You should be ashamed of your lack of sensitivity however you can redeem yourself by just wearing this top at all times. #MelaniaTrump #IHaveNoIdeaWhatImDoing 🇺🇸 • • • ft.

The first lady’s team insisted that there was no hidden meaning behind her outfit choice but something tells us her stylist (if she used one) is about to get the boot.
Here is Donald Trump’s response to the fiasco:
“I REALLY DON’T CARE, DO U?” written on the back of Melania’s jacket, refers to the Fake News Media. Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!

Let’s be real. From a collection presumably filled with designer clothes, why did it have to be that jacket that got taken along for the ride to see these poor, displaced children?
Despite Melania Trump insisting that there was no hidden agenda behind her choice in outerwear, many Twitter users beg to differ:
Melania has $600 shoes. Do you really think that she would wear a $39 jacket for a fashion statement?
The timing, the place, the situation – this was intentional. Moreover, this had nothing to do with “the media.”
The Trump family is an embarrassment.

Melania Trump’s Jacket mess was the result of one of 3 things:
#1 She Really doesn’t give a crap about the children
#2 She cant read English
#3 This was a planned Distraction.
There is no way this was just one big coincidental mistake.

And the winner for best mic drop goes to:
Guys, Melania Trump had a hectic morning and obviously just tossed on the first jacket she saw before she dashed out the door. I mean, who among us hasn’t absent-mindedly tossed on a “TOO BAD FOR YOU WOMP WOMP” t-shirt before going to work at the local homeless shelter?

Let us also remember that she is not only a mother but also Slovenian by blood (and therefore an immigrant) so yes, she should care. Once upon a time, that could’ve been her too, because #ThisIsAmerica.
