Melania Trump wore a jacket inscribed with "I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?" on purpose. She knew what she was doing. She knew they'd see it. She knew it would be noticed. She really didn't care. The media, baptized each day in self-love, inflated egos and oblivious self-unawareness, couldn't figure out that the message was for them.
The Daily Mail first reported the jacket, which was spotted by the press traveling with the first lady but impossible to read without a long-range camera lens.
If the First Lady wore this jacket to make some statement about kids at the border, why would she wear the jacket in a place that only people with long-range camera lenses would spot it? The message was obviously for the press, and about the press.
FLOTUS' Director of Communication tweeted "#ItsJustAJacket" but it's not, if you're in the media.
The message was for the press. It took President Trump's bluntness to make that case.
"Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!" the president tweeted, and that's more likely true than all the ridiculous hot takes we're seeing from the media. Even that remark played as an "a ha!" moment by the one-note media: "Trump admits Melania wore "I really don't care" jacket on purpose after he spokeswoman claimed she didn't."
But Stephanie Grisham didn't claim Melania didn't wear the jacket in purpose. She claimed that the media is focusing on FLOTUS' wardrobe, which is true.
Melania Trump's jacket was a big middle finger to a media that's treated her like trash. They've used her to smear her husband, her child, and they've done a terrible injustice to actual feminism (as opposed to social justice "feminism" that does nothing for actual women). All the women in Trump's orbit--powerful women with enormous responsibility--are treated by the media with open contempt.
Melania's jacket speaks for them.
The message was for the media, and they're too self-absorbed to get it.
