A photo of First Lady Melania Trump’s jacket went viral last week and became a topic of heated discussion. The $40 jacket from the fast fashion retailer Zara somehow became the empirical evidence of Melania Trump being a “racist fascist Nazi” according to the leftwing media and anyone suggesting otherwise is also a Nazi.
The first lady flew out to McAllen, Texas, last Thursday morning to visit a shelter for illegal migrant children and had been separated from their detained parents. The jacket worn by her was adorned on the back with these texts: “I don’t really care, do u?” The Trump administration came under widespread criticism over the separations, which President Trump himself addressed as pre-existing laws already in place since the Obama era.
The subject matter quickly amounted to the mainstream media shutting down any and all alternative opinion besides their narrative of pinpointing everything on Melania to convince us she is a racist. The intentions behind such a censorship on people’s opinions goes beyond just an attempt to smear the First Lady but also to divert the actual message behind this jacket- She doesn’t care about the mainstream media. In doing so, the likes of CNN, CBS, BBC only exposed themselves, in their effort to fabricate and spread fake evidence to support this baseless claim in the first place.
Void of any moral code, the leftist media, namely Snopes ; a “fact-checking” website with a history of liberal bias, helped to spread an inflammatory theory that linked Melania’s birthplace, a Slovenian city occupied by fascist Italy, a regime that dissolved decades before her birth as “evidence” of her being a full-blown racist/fascist/nazi. Conveniently, to avoid any legal backlash at such a serious accusation, the website labeled this theory as “unproven” declaring it as neither true or false.
“It’s a jacket. There was no hidden message,” Melania’s spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said in a statement to the press. “After today’s important visit to Texas, I hope the media isn’t going to choose to focus on her wardrobe. (Much like her high heels last year).”
Eugene Gu – a doctor who recently sued trump over blocking him on twitter, posted a tweet likening Melania to Marie Antoinette, the tweet has since garnered more than 5000 likes:
“Thought this was photoshopped but no, this is real. While visiting children thrown into internment camps, Melania Trump actually wore a jacket saying, “I don’t really care, do U?” That’s like Marie Antoinette ripping a piece of bread from a starving baby and spitting on it.”
The establishment media complex has never stopped character attacks on Trump’s family ever since he announced his election run, anyone with an ounce of intelligence ought to be extremely skeptical of such weaponized gossip material being marketed as “news”.
