First Lady Melania Trump’s “I Really Don’t Care” jacket did not go over well, stimulating robust discussion on social media over whether it was just a tone-deaf mistake, or a ploy by her husband, the president, to distract the media from his Russia-collusion probe.

Alternate messages on jackets popped up all over social media to deflect the Trump energy and rally hope for Trump resisters, now and in November.

Mrs. Trump on Thursday flew unannounced to the U.S.-Mexico border to see how migrant families and detained children were being treated.

But it was her clothes rather than the visit that got most of the attention. As she boarded her plane to Texas, she was photographed wearing a jacket that read, “I really don’t care. Do U?”

By the time she landed in McAllen, Texas, the jacket was off, according to CNN, but the insensitivity of the gesture had already done its damage.

Thousands of children have been separated from their parents and arrested at the border while the adults are charged with illegally crossing into the U.S., Time reported.

“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,” the First Lady’s Communications Director Stephanie Grisham said in a statement.

However, the president couldn’t resist appropriating the moment. He confirmed that there was indeed a hidden message, tweeting: “I REALLY DON’T CARE, DO U?” written on the back of Melania’s jacket, refers to the Fake News Media. Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!”

Spoken like a stable genius.
