    FLOTUS Jacket Sparks Conversation on Political Messages

    First lady Melania Trump's jacket sparked major backlash during her trip to the border. News4's Barbara Harrison sat down with Anita McBride, who has worked with three Republican administrations, to get her take on the messages the jacket sent to the public. (Published Friday, June 22, 2018)

    First lady Melania Trump wore a jacket that read "I really don't care, do u?" as she boarded a flight Thursday to a facility housing migrant children separated from their parents.

    The green, hooded military jacket had the words written graffiti-style on the back.

    When asked what message the first lady's jacket intends to send, spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said: "It's a jacket. There was no hidden message. After today's important visit to Texas, I hope the media isn't going to choose to focus on her wardrobe."


    Grisham underscored that message in a tweet with the hashtags #SheCares and #ItsJustAJacket.

    Mrs. Trump changed into a pale yellow jacket before the plane landed in McAllen, Texas, for a visit to the Upbring New Hope Children's Center, which houses 55 migrant children.
