I hate to say that I told you so, but I’m pretty sure that I did.
Months ago, when the leftist media threw a tizzy over First Lady Melania Trump’s $36 coat donning the phrase, “I Don’t Really Care, Do You?”, I was one of the first in line to suggest that the jacket was a subtle dig at the mainstream media in the wake of the family separation controversy on the border.
The First Lady wore the jacket as she boarded a flight to visit the border herself, creating mass speculation from all corners of the political sphere of influence, including an article right here on Constitution.com.

Now, in a fun bit of confirmation, Melania herself has finally addressed the concerns surrounding the jacket’s message.
First lady Melania Trump revealed during an ABC interview aired Friday night that the jacket she wore getting on and off a plane to visit the border was a jab at left-wing media and critics.
“I often asking myself if I would not wear that jacket if I would have so much media coverage,” Trump told Chief National Affairs Correspondent Tom Llamas in the interview conducted during her recent trip to Africa.
The jacket in question was one she wore only to walk off a plane and again to board the plane that transported her to and from the border for a visit. During the visit with Border Patrol, parents and children detained at the border, and detainment facility workers, she was not wearing the jacket. The jacket read, “I really don’t care, do u?” Media critics lashed out her for the wardrobe choice, attempting to claim it related to not caring about the families.
He probed into why she chose to wear the jacket on the border trip.
“It’s obvious I didn’t wear it for the children,” she made clear. “I wore the jacket to go on the plane and off the plane and it was for the people and for the left-wing media who are criticizing me and I want to show them that I don’t care. You can criticize whatever you want to say but it will not stop me to do what I feel is right.”
In reality, Melania’s “statement”, if there was one, was likely a sarcastic, witty retort to the mainstream media itself, who have taken to harassing both the First Lady and First Daughter Ivanka on the subject of immigration in recent days.
Melania, unlike the media, is there, on the scene, taking care to observe these facilities. So, who really cares…the First Lady on the scene, or the mainstream media hellbent on delegitimizing a fairly elected President over policies enacted by the Obama Administration?
Tell me again who the “fake news” is?
