Colbert Mocks Melania Trump's Jacket

But it wasn't entirely clear what the white, graffiti-style lettering said.

She didn't wear the jacket when touring the detention shelter, but put it back on when she got off the return flight to Washington D.C., and kept it on as she walked into The Oval Office where she was seen with Kellyanne Conway and Mercedes Schlapp.

Melania Trump's communications director, Stephanie Grisham, said in a statement, "It's a jacket".

Melania's spokesperson claimed that there was no hidden message in the jacket.

After assuring the audience that his show had repeatedly verified the image "because we thought this has to be fake", Colbert showed pictures of Melania, en route to the detention centers, wearing a jacket that read, "I really don't care, do u?". "Now a lot of the clothes Melania wears sends the message 'I really don't care.' Also a lot of her facial expressions".

The first lady's visit to Upbring New Hope Children's Center on Thursday comes after President Donald Trump signed an executive order halting the practice of separating families. Last summer she wore cropped trousers, a green bomber jacket, and needle-thin heels as she exited the White House for Air Force One for a flight to Houston to view the damage from Hurricane Harvey.

Trump said she wanted to learn more about how these children can be reunited with their parents "as quickly as possible". But it wasn't long before the first lady's controversial jacket threatened to overshadow the entire goodwill junket to the border.

Grisham had earlier bashed the media for paying so much attention to Melania Trump's sartorial choices. She told children to "be kind and nice to each other" as she left another classroom.

She's right - it wasn't a hidden message; it was right there on her back.

Later Thursday, the president weighed in on the meaning of his wife's message jacket. The first lady has spearheaded a "Be Best" initiative, whose primary aim is to promote healthy behaviors among children, but child health experts have said that the practice of taking children from their parents has detrimental effects to their long-term health.

A clothing company sold out of their charitable "I really care" jacket, which they created in response to the Melania controversy.

The jacket worn by the first lady is made by Zara and is worth roughly R530 ($39), according to the Daily Mail. It's not the first time the first lady's fashion choices have caused a stir.
