To me, it is crystal clear (Melania's jacket) [View all]

I really don't get so much speculation about the meaning of the jacket.

First of all, those who say she didn't notice or is "tone deaf", seriously?. There is nothing spontaneous or casual; about those people, and for Melania in particular, everything about her down to the last hair is perfectly arranged.

A message for him? No, the timing isn't right.

Is is this simple. The FLOTUS boards a plane to visit internment camps for little Hispanic kids wearing a jacket that says, "I really don't care, do U?"

The meaning is clear. Crystal clear. trump is behind this, and she is complicit.
