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.”
