If you didn't think the tone deaf (opens in new tab), cruel behavior (opens in new tab) could get any worse, today The Daily Mail (opens in new tab) reported that First Lady Melania Trump wore a $39 Zara jacket (opens in new tab) that reads on the back, "I don't really care, do u?" to visit immigrant children ripped from their parents (opens in new tab) at the border. She was photographed wearing the jacket while boarding her flight at Andrews airport in Maryland, but removed it before disembarking the plane in McAllen, Texas.
Here, Twitter users' reactions to the First Lady's choice of clothing.
I mean let’s face it, she doesn’t. #PhotoOP“Melania Trump made quite the sartorial statement on Thursday when she donned a jacket with the words, 'I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?' written across the back while boarding a plane to visit immigrant children being held at the border...” pic.twitter.com/DsAf9HVlQOJune 21, 2018
