Melania Trump's visit to an immigrant children's shelter yesterday drew plenty of attention due to a particular sartorial choice she made.

The 48-year-old headed down to the US-Mexican border on Thursday via a plane leaving from Andrews Air Force Base, according to CNN.

Press travelling with the first lady noticed that the olive green jacket she wore when boarding reads 'I really don't care. Do u?' in white writing on the back. 

She also wore it when deplaning at the Andrews Air Force Base after her visit.

Her choice in jacket, which was first reported on by the Daily Mail, has caused quite a bit of backlash due to the serious nature of her visit and the public uproar around President Donald Trump's border policy. 

In response to the criticism directed at Melania, East Wing communications director Stephanie Grisham issued a statement saying:

"It's a jacket. There was no hidden message. After today's important visit to Texas, I hope the media isn't going to choose to focus on her wardrobe."

President Trump claimed that the jacket's slogan was aimed at the media.

"'I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?' written on the back of Melania's jacket, refers to the Fake News Media. Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!" he tweeted.

After becoming the subject of an online hate campaign, Gigi Hadid has defended her controversial impression of the future First Lady, Melania Trump.

Following her impersonation of Donald Trump’s wife at Sunday night’s American Music Awards ceremony in LA, the 21-year-old was branded “racist” by critics who denounced her adoption of an exaggerated European accent in a skit which referenced Michelle Obama’s “stolen” speech.

This morning, the Hilfiger model issued a statement on Twitter claiming her portrayal of Melania was conducted in “good humour and with no bad intent”.

In the handwritten note, Gigi explained how she “removed or changed anything in the script that [she] felt took the joke too far”, before stressing her belief that “Melania understands show business”.

“I too have been the centre of a nationally televised comedy skit that poked fun at my actions,” she wrote.  “And [I] was able to find the humour in it.”

“I believe Melania understands show business and the way shows are written and run.”

In her closing statement, the young star apologised to those offended by the performance and insisted she has “only the best wishes for [her] country”.

Gigi Hadid found herself at the centre of a social media storm this morning when she was hit with a wave of abuse for her impression of Melania Trump.

While hosting the 44th American Music Awards ceremony in LA last night with impression expert Jay Pharoah, the 21-year-old model openly mocked the future First Lady by impersonating Melania’s “face”, adopting an exaggerated European accent and poking fun at the plagiarism accusations waged at Ms Trump after she appeared to borrow parts of a Michelle Obama speech in July.

“I gotta do the face right,” began Zayn Malik’s girlfriend.  “I love my husband, President Barack Obama and our children, Sasha and Malia.”

Members of Gigi’s star-studded audience laughed quietly at her joke, but those watching the event at home were less than amused.

Many took to Twitter to voice their grievances, with some going as far as to suggest that the impression was “racist”.

“Its racist when Trump says illegals should leave, but not when Gigi Hadid makes fun of Melania Trump’s European accent? #DOUBLESTANDARD (sic),” wrote one person.

“Idiot.  If someone did that to Moochelle they’d be called a racist.  Sorry you’re not as pretty as Melania, Gigi,” said another.

Others criticised the Californian for lacking class in choosing to portray Trump’s third wife.

“A model making fun of a model.  Not classy @GiGiHadid, not classy.  Just silly #AMAs #disappointed,” read one Tweet.

While another group focused on comparing Gigi with Melania through tweets like: “Dear @GiGiHadid, @MELANIATRUMP is 100 percent more beautiful and smart than you will ever be.  How dare you, boycott the #AMAs.”

 

Since the controversy surrounding Gigi's performance is still gaining pace, we think it'll be a while before this blows over.

From her powerful speeches to her admirable charitable efforts Michelle Obama is pretty much First Lady goals and it seems no one is more aware of this fact than Donald Trump’s wife Melania.

The First Lady hopeful gave her first big speech at the Republican National Convention last night and while it was very well received by her audience, critics have since noticed that a number of lines in the address seem to have been lifted from a speech given by Mrs Obama back in 2008.

Speaking in Cleveland, Melania said “from a young age, my parents impressed on me, the values that you work hard for what you want in life. That your word is your bond; that you do what you say and keep your promise. That you treat people with respect” in a statement which sounds suspiciously similar to Michelle’s:  “From a young age, my parents impressed on me, the values that you work hard for what you want in life. That your word is your bond; that you do what you say and keep your promise. That you treat people with respect.”

And in the same part of the speech Michelle said “because we want our children — and all children in this nation — to know that the only limit to the height of your achievements is the reach of your dreams and your willingness to work hard for them,” Melania continued:  “Because want our children in this nation to know that the only limit to your achievements is the strength to your dreams and your willingness to work for them.”

According to The Guardian, this morning Trump’s team denied that the speech was plagiarised with the chairman of the Trump campaign telling CNN that “there’s no cribbing of Michelle Obama’s speech”.

But it seems not all of Camp Trump are on the same page as last night Trump’s speechwriter admitted Melania’s speech contained fragments of other speeches which “reflected her own thinking” before stating that the speech was produced by a team of writers.

This statement is in stark contrast to Melania’s claim that she wrote the speech herself.  Awks.

As with all things Trump, the incident has spurred on some powerful hashtags with #FamousMelaniaTrumpQuotes in particular throwing up some serious gems.  Check out our favorites below.
