Melania Trump trolls us all by using her position of privilege to do a crappy thing

While boarding a plane en route to Texas before visiting immigrant children being detained at the U.S.-Mexico border, Melania Trump wore a jacket with the words “I Really Don’t Care, Do U?” written on the back in bold font.

Here’s the truth about it: it’s not insensitive. It’s not tone-deaf. It’s perfectly calculated and cruel.

Where to even begin? Honestly. Can we all stop begging the Melanias and the Ivankas of this nightmare of an administration to have a heart now? Because if wearing a literal sandwich board that screams “I DON’T FUCKING CARE” isn’t enough to convince Americans that THEY DON’T FUCKING CARE, then we’re all just doomed.

The jacket itself is under $40 and sold by Zara, a retailer who probably never imagined something of this magnitude occurring over a cheap army jacket.

And before anyone chimes in with any “let’s give her the benefit of the doubt” nonsense, here’s something to help you check yourself before you wreck yourself.

This is hardly the first time the First Lady has made a deliberate outfit choice. Remember when the infamous “grab ’em by the pussy” tape dropped and she decided to wear a pink, pussy-bow blouse to the Presidential debate shortly after?

Yeah. She knows exactly what the fuck she’s doing. And subtlety ain’t it.

Be best, right?

Naturally, the internet was all over her shitty jacket choice — exactly as she intended, to be sure, but still — it’s hard not to be all “wtf?” about it. Because WTF.

She appeared to only wear the jacket on board the plane, but really — does it even matter? The damage is done.

Writer Parker Molloy decided to remind everyone who does, in fact, care and that we are all capable of showing it in a productive way.

Because a power move isn’t using your position of extreme privilege to don a condescending, smarmy piece of clothing. Positive action is a real power move.
