Melania border trip sends message: Darcy cartoon

  • Melania visits detained immigrant children as Trump furore continues

Many celebrities, including George Clooney, Chrissy Teigen and Jimmy Kimmel, have publicly condemned the policy that caused at least 2,000 children to be separated from their parents.

The controversial jacket was an olive green by Zara in white graffiti-style lettering worth $39.

She appeared to only wear the jacket on board the plane, but really - does it even matter?

"It's a jacket. There was no hidden message", said Melania Trump's publicist, insisting reporters instead focus on the First Lady's detention center visit.

"It's a jacket. There was no hidden message", Stephanie Grisham told the Associated Press. "Now a lot of the clothes Melania wears sends the message 'I really don't care.' Also a lot of her facial expressions". Last summer she wore cropped trousers, a green bomber jacket, and needle-thin heels as she exited the White House for Air Force One for a flight to Houston to view the damage from Hurricane Harvey.

Colbert also slammed Trump for meeting with a worker at the shelter, where she said "that's great" to the news that children are often held away from their parents for 42-45 days.




He continued: "Although it is kind of sweet that she made a jacket out of her and Donald's wedding vows".

We can probably argue for days as to whether she did this on objective, though it does raise eyebrows that if it weren't intentional, there would be someone in the presidential cadre who might have pointed out that a $40 Zara jacket with a potentially inflammatory message might not be the best outfit for a child prison.

As many noted on social media, the cheap, youthful jacket sharply contrasts with the first lady's typically bold, foreign-flavored wardrobe.

"Thank you to Secretary Azar for traveling w me today & the care you are giving these children in such a hard time". Almost 2,000 children have been taken away from their families at the Mexican border per one of her husband's policies.

The show cut to a clip of the first lady saying she planned to figure out how she could help the kids who were detained.

But the outcry was not about the content of her visit so much as her attire. As the first lady knows, fashion is not frivolous, It's not just a jacket, it's a disturbing, cold question posed to the world at the wrong time, and at the wrong place.
