The View's Ana Navarro reveals meaning of Melania's jacket: 'She was trying to self-deport from the White House'
Ana Navarro (ABC)

Panelists on "The View" tried to make sense of the jacket first lady Melania Trump wore to visit a border shelter for migrant children.


The first lady wore an olive green jacket with the words, "I don't really care, do u?" written on the back -- which outraged and puzzled many -- as President Donald Trump's family separation policy blows up in his face.

"She's trolling her husband," said co-host Sunny Hostin. "I think she's trolling her husband. Why would she show up?"

Co-host Sara Haines agreed the message was aimed at her husband, and not the detained children his administration has essentially held hostage as leverage to get funding for a border wall.

"My friend Amy wrote, this is the most awkward beginnings to divorce proceedings I've ever seen," Haines said, laughing. "It's just a joke."

Co-host Meghan McCain thought Melania Trump made the visit on her own as a political statement.

"Give her more credit, she's our first lady," McCain said. "I think she did this on her own. I don't think she follows Donald Trump's orders, it's completely political."

Guest host Ana Navarro was more inclined to agree with Haines and her friend.

"Can I tell you something?" Navarro said. "We have no idea. What we all know is this is a very complicated marriage. Look -- I thought she was trying to self-deport from the White House."
