Washington sources reported that a day after first lady Melania Trump stirred controversy by wearing a jacket that read "She really don't care, do u?" on a trip to visit a children’s shelter on the U.S Mexico border, people are still scratching their heads.
Meanwhile on his late-night show, comedian Stephen Colbert asked a version of the question reverberating around political Washington: "How many people would get fired for this at a normal White House? One? Five? And people who were supposedly on her side let her get on a plane with a jacket that said, 'She really don't care, do you?'". Moreover whether the first lady anticipated or was warned that her outerwear would divert attention from what her staff described as a humanitarian mission, her choice to wear it in public seems to be deliberate.
Furthermore Melania Trump's East Wing team includes only 10 aides, compared with the 25 or so who worked under Michelle Obama and Laura Bush. She also eschews a "body person," a personal aide who typically travels with a president or first lady and acts as an assistant. Moreover in an interview in April, the first lady's chief of staff, Lindsay Reynolds, said Mrs. Trump determined that she didn't need to fill that role. "She is so low maintenance, so efficient, that she does everything herself”.
