Melania Trump dons 'I really don't care, do u?' jacket

First lady Melania Trump boards a plane at Andrews Air Force Base Md. Thursday

First lady Melania Trump took a trip to the US-Mexico border on Thursday to tour an immigrant children's shelter, but her trip is getting attention not only for her action, but also for her wardrobe choice before and after the journey.

The first lady can be seen boarding a plane at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland headed for Texas wearing a $39 army green military-inspired jacket from Zara with the flippant phrase written out in graffiti-style lettering.

USA first lady Melania Trump walks from her to her motorcade wearing a Zara design jacket with the phrase "I Really Don't Care".

When is a jacket not just a jacket?

Tributes have quickly poured in on social media from Kanye West and rapper Sean "Diddy" Combs among other hip-hop heavyweights. In the last 18 months, Onfroy quickly became one of popular music's most controversial and, in some circles, reviled figures.

Reached for comment Thursday, Stephanie Grisham, a spokeswoman for the first lady, told TPM: "It's a jacket".

Journalist Nina Terrero hit out at the First Lady, writing on Twitter: "Melania Trump wears Zara on a visit to a Texas children's shelter in an overture to appear as one of the good people..." It's a ZARA jacket that retails for about $40. She supports family reunification. In public appearances, the first lady has worn designs by Dolce & Gabbana (remember her $51,500 D&G jacket at the G-7 summit in Italy?), Del Pozo, Christian Dior, Emilio Pucci, Givenchy and Valentino, often with daringly high Christian Louboutin heels.

The jacket elicited a number of reactions on social media. It's more like a dog whistle for Trump's anti-immigrant supporters: "I'm publicly supporting immigrants, but you really know I don't care". "She wants to see a realistic view of what's happening".

She did not reveal where the jacket came from. Thank you to @SecAzar @HHSGOV for traveling w me today & the care you are giving these children in such a hard time.

But coach Tite acknowledged his side could have played better. "No, with this team, it will not be like eight years ago", he said. Brazil meet Costa Rica on Friday and will hope Neymar is available to fire them to a first victory of the tournament.

She had condemned the Trump administration's child separation policy earlier this week, and reportedly lobbied husband Donald Trump to end it.

She visited a schoolroom at Upbring and chatted with about 20 young girls and boys who had school folders on their desks.

The visit was made images of distraught children crying for their mothers and housed in barren cages were broadcast worldwide, prompting outrage across the political spectrum.

Here's the thing: The jacket decisions made by the first lady aren't as big or as important a story as the crisis along the border.
