What do u think of Melania Trumps's jacket which she wore during a visit to detained immigrant kids?

First Lady Melania Trump has once again come under fire—this time for her choice in outfit for a visit to see migrant children at a Texas border detention centre.
She wore a jacket which critics are slamming as "horrifically tone deaf" and "hugely insensitive."
What are your thoughts about it? What do u think of Melania Trumps's jacket which she wore during a visit to detained immigrant kids?

  • I’m not a big Trump supporter, but I sincerely doubt she was wearing that as some sort of way to insult the children. I dunno what it was for—whether a message to the media or whatnot, but it seems ridiculous to assume it was an anti-children statement. Seems like a hasty conclusion.

    Was it a bad decision to wear the jacket? Yeah, probably, considering the meaning is pretty vague... but I still don’t believe the meaning/intention is as extreme as what some say it is.

    I feel like both sides want ultimately to not put the children in harm’s way or whatnot. I honestly don’t buy the mud each is throwing at each other. It’s just a matter of finding a solution that resolves the issue well (i. e. illegal immigration), but also does so without hurting innocent children.

  • I highly doubt she wore the jacket to insult immigrant children and I have greater doubt that it was a message for the media. Both sides appear to be lying on this. The more likely possibility for me is a rather simple one: She still struggles a bit with English, so she didn't take into consideration the words on her jacket. I mean hell, her campaign title was "Be Best"... If she cannot even formulate a simple phrase correctly, I doubt she's knows English too well. The jacket was definitely a stupid choice to make, but a mistake, nonetheless. I don't think she's deserving of so much heat for a mistake. And this opinion comes from someone who absolutely detests the Trump administration and finds her essentially pointless in all this.

  • People seriously love to make issues out of nothing. She could of worn top saying "f##k you" doesn't mean she isn't trying to do something postive. And I don't even support trump or Hillary. I couldn't care less about the Amercian election. But people seem to overreact to every single thing that happens.

    I think there's more important messed up stuff to focus on going on in America. Like the actual kids themselves. Instead of her jacket.

  • I think it was in very poor taste, given the current situation... I did read it was directed at the media however there are better ways, times and places to make those kinds of statements. She’s a wealthy woman, she has stylists, advisors and her position calls for every single piece of her wardrobe to be scrutinised both by their own staff but also the media.
    To wear something with that slogan across the back of it at a time where their country is divided over children being separated from their parents when she could have chosen ANYTHING else is going to make a statement. Whether or not that was intentional is irrelevant - it’s insensitive and they know better

    • they didn't do it randomly lol... they knew the shock factor on the day off...
      its clearly don't intentionally to get people first talking about it... to get the media talking about it then after the media has made a ton of claims... you have trumpet just simply tweet out that its for the media...

      I mean thats poet lol

    • @TripleAce it’s something alright 😜 don’t know if poetic is what I’d call it.
      I think just find it weak - if she wants to make a statement then make it, and make it clear instead of an ambiguous slogan on a shitty $38 sack she normally wouldn’t be caught dead in. If you can’t be clear on your intent then people are going to make up their own, and in the current political situation it really does seem like it’s against the families affected. Whether what they have done is right or wrong, whether them being separated is right or wrong for the First Lady to literally wear a jacket saying she doesn’t care then refuse to make it clear what it’s about? Nah.
      Trump speaking for her is even weaker, she has a platform, she has an audience and she should learn to use it independently or just be quiet

  • I found it hilarious because they’ve gotten so much shit that it’s grown tiresome. (Trump got two scoops of icecream and Trump eats fried chicken with a fork!! LETS MAKE IT NEWS!!) lets be real they have borders with detention centers all over the world yet people don’t care about that.

    Also let’s forget how obama bombed the shit out of the middle east more than Bush as well as having the highest count on deporting illegal immigrants.

    • "I think we can all agree that it is inappropriate and distasteful to wear a jacket saying you don't care, while visiting children that were taken from their families"

      But that's just it. Basic human decency can no longer be assumed. There are MANY on the right wing side who don't feel anything for these kids, or who don't think that jacket is inappropriate.

      You need to wake up and realise just how hateful irrational and insane they are.

    • You make a good point.

  • I don't believe that the message was directed at the migrant children. I think it was just a very clumsy lapse in thought. I don't believe that she is very bright.

    I would have to say that the slogan was unnecessary anyway. We can see in her face that she doesn't care. She constantly looks like she's been licking piss off a ghost pepper. I would imagine that she has entirely lost the will to live.

  • I understand that the left dislikes President Trump because he doesn't sugarcoat anything and he's not always Presidential. I don't think though that he's a bad man and wants to hurt families at the border. And I don't think the left should constantly be attacking Melania, Ivanka, Donald Jr, and the rest of his family, simply because they don't like President Trump.

    Could you imagine if someone on the right wrote a story about one of Obama's daughters (while he was President) having possible Aspergers and making fun of her for it? That's what the left did with Barron Trump. They did that when he was 11-years-old, but I guess he deserved it since he's the President's son.

    Anyways, I don't see a problem with the message on her jacket. She is basically calling the left out for making this issue political. These are people's lives we are talking about.

    And for the record, Barack Hussein Obama administration knowingly placed children with human traffickers, which is why the Trump administration separated families so they could assess who were being trafficked to the United States and which children actually belonged to their alleged parents. I bet the liberal media doesn't tell you that little tidbit of information, do they?

  • On the one hand, it's an idiotic move that panders to Mr. Trump's few die-hard supporters. It's like they can't take one second to do something non-partisan. It's blatantly divisive and demonstrates that Trump is not the President of all Americans.

    On the other hand, Melania Trump is a non-entity to me. It's like she doesn't exist. She's just a mindless automaton that sometimes follows Trump around saying nothing and doing nothing of value whatsoever. Her opinion is irrelevant.

  • It's very accurate to the actual feeling of the majority of the population. Everyone who is outraged by this, let me ask you a couple questions. How many of you will take those kids (and family) into your home. How many of you will raises those kids with money out your pocket until they reach 18? I'm sure the answer is NONE of you will. So stop with the fake outrage and the fake "oh I care for people" when none of you actually do. So that Jacket is spot on wheather you all like it or not.

    • That's a really heavy strawman. People are against the separation of children from their families. Are you really that lacking in empathy? Think if America was on the brink of collapse and you tried to go to another country, no means of communicating with the countries government and are seeking asylum. Why should they even be taking your children and jailing you? I understand kicking them out as the most aggressive means, but arresting the parents and caging the kids is pretty much the same thing as taking them in and trying to make them citizens (economically wise). You'd be paying your tax dollars in feeding the kids and parents, lose your pull on the international stage, and have wasted money when you could have just kicked people out to their country or one willing to take them in. I'm not sure why your reaction is to be cruel but its something to consider.

    • I don't know, I don't control the media or other people, but *I* am outraged by it. I mention it on my twitter but obviously, one person isn't enough and politics is new to me as of 2015. So you can imagine my disgust in the country's behavior. Also, you are moving the goal post of the conversation this is about the outfit and the separation of children from their families.

    • @AgentDearestZ I'm not moving the goal post. I'm talking about the fake outrage by people who pick and choose what they want to be outrage about. In a few weeks from now. No one is going to be talking about this , because there is going to be something new to be outrage about. This same shit happened when the hurricane hit Puerto Rico last year. Puerto Rico isn't fixed, but you don't hear anyone talking about it anymore. So if you are genuinely outrage. Good !!! But a tweet isn't making the lives of those kids any better.

      I'm not attacking you by the way. I just telling you how the media and America works. You can disagree with what I'm saying and think I'm a dick. But it's the truth wheather you like it or not.

      If you really want to help a kid. Go on the UN website and pledge money to help a kid go to school and have a meal. That's actually helping.

      It discredits the media, and gains more Trump supporters.

    • @PhilBurt That is their JOB. The free press is there to hold power to account. Most politicians deal with that. Trump is too thin-skinned. He is behaving like a dictator, and undermining democracy.

      They complain about his tweets because his tweets are DANGEROUS. He keeps changing his mind, contradicting his administration without warning, threatening nuclear war, targeting named individuals, etc. Apart from sullying the office, he is undermining American diplomacy, alliances and your international image and place in the world. Which has consequences for everyone in the world. If you're the POTUS, you don't threaten nuclear war on Twitter. That is the height of irresponsibility.

      Anyone would conclude that. How can you not see that? That's like me walking into a bank with a ski mask and a toy gun, then complaining when someone calls the police.

    • @sjoes006 of course you can come here and kinda insult me the way I may have insulted her, but that still doesn't change my mind in that I think she's old enough and holds a position high enough to be able to express her opinions in a more mature way.

      This goes hand in hand with her being able to speak many languages fluently, which I don't believe for a second she is. If she did, and even as a first lady, she would have gained the understanding of many different cultures as well and would have the
      power to do much more than what she does.

    • I mean you no insult at all. Zero intent to do so, I’m not a fan of Trump. But you see how language and culture gaps come in?

      Honestly she really doesn’t have much recourse. She has to stay married to him and act appropriately until they are out of office. Her husband makes scene enough for both of them.

      The only thing I care about is that her cheap jacket is keeping attention on these children which is exactly where it should be until they are reunited with their parents.

      And we don’t know when that will be. But I know I’m taking off work to go to Brownsville TX where one of the main detention centers are next week to protest and demand action. If the fed won’t act TEXAS has a lot of pressure on it right now to do something.

      This is an atrocity beyond the scope of which I ever thought I would see the US commit in my very worst nightmares, of which there have been many.

      Record keeping was so poor the longer we wait these kids may never be reunited w family.
