First Lady Melania Trump departs Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland June 21, 2018 wearing a jacket emblazoned with the words "I really don't care, do U?" following her surprise visit with child migrants on the US-Mexico border.

First Lady Melania Trump drew a storm of controversy on Thursday when she made an unannounced visit to see the conditions of migrant families and children being detained at the U.S.-Mexico border.

But the outcry was not about the content of her visit so much as her attire. As Trump boarded her plane to Texas, she was photographed wearing a jacket that read, “I really don’t care. Do U?”

While she was not wearing the jacket when she landed in McAllen, Texas, according to CNN, the First Lady’s choice of attire struck many as insensitive. Her husband’s administration has received widespread criticism in recent weeks over its “zero-tolerance” immigration policy, which has led to thousands of children being separated from their parents at the border while the adults are charged with illegally crossing into the U.S.

No. 1-2

It could be interpreted as indifferent really. Why of all times she chose that day to wear something like that? To really troll the media? Sad I appreciate her going there but she should have worn something less controversial that would give the media something to feast on

How about we judge through actions? It's some stupid fashion symbol, not her feelings on the subject! Laughable yes--scornful no.
