In all seriousness, can someone please confirm or deny if this is a Photoshop of the FLOTUS.
Did she really wear a jacket down to Texas that said "I really don't care. Do u?"


She indeed did. Her spokesperson confirmed it

What's there to confirm? It's on the BBC, they do basic fact checking, unlike InfoWars and the likes...

WOW...I see it all over the place. I thought your link was a spoof (BCB or something like that). Thanks for confirming. What I was trying to do was not jump to conclusions and run with a thought that may not have been true. Now that I see that it really is...WOW...

My gut response is "I think they're just tonedeaf and didn't think about it at all" but I have to believe any outfit a FLOTUS wears is seen by multiple aides before they go out in public, especially a written message in big font, so someone should've pointed it out. It's very hard to parse the incompetence from the malice with this bunch. 

I can just about guarantee it's not a hidden message to Trump, though.

Yeah that's why my gut says incompetence. It's just that the incompetence explanation requiring it from multiple different parties and the malice just needing one makes it trickier.

I'd say the Dunning-Kruger effect extends to not recognizing incompetence in others.

A message to the base.... “I really don’t care, do u?”

And who is wearing a jacket in Texas in June?

Hanlon's razor: "Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity."

We might need a new one:
Trump's Razor: "Be cautious attributing to stupidity that which is explained by cruelty."

I thought this whole jacket thing was a joke, or something.  I guess not.  can we impeach the first lady for general stupidity?

just checking...

This comes from someone who has never dis-liked a first lady, no matter what party or who they were married to.

No, but she might meet Trump's task force's deportation criteria...

Melania might be beautiful, but she is quite stupid. Her taste in fashion and husband prove that.

There's no way this isn't intentional, by the way. As someone pointed out, this is a $40 Zara jacket. I doubt this type of clothes are usually part of her wardrobe.

It's intentional.  What we don't know is what the intent was. 

It's obviously not a shot at the children.  She's not saying she doesn't care about them, because quite obviously she does.  I mean, she made a rare public comment indicating she didn't like the policy of child separation.  How many first ladies have ever publicly contradicted a policy of her husband, even in part?

My guess is that he statement was meant to be ironic / sarcastic toward her critics.  She gets criticized constantly despite keeping a low profile, and this jacket is probably a swipe at that and the assumptions that people make about her.

As for her taste in men, it's a situation as old as time:  some people sacrifice love for security.
