Jacketgate: Media Freaks Out About What Melania Wore on Plane Ride to Visit Immigrant Children in Texas

Update: President Trump responded to the media speculation Thursday evening with his own explanation of the First Lady's jacket.

Original Post:

Many in the media freaked out Thursday over a jacket first lady Melania Trump wore when boarding the plane to visit immigrant children in a Texas detention center. The $39 Zara jacket reads “I really don’t care. do u?” on the back.

Melania Trump’s spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said in a statement: "It's a jacket. There was no hidden message. After today's important visit to Texas, I hope this isn't what the media is going to choose to focus on." 

She also mentioned the time the media attacked the First Lady for wearing heels when boarding the plane to visit Hurricane Harvey victims in Texas. 

The first lady had changed outfits by the time the plane landed in Texas.
