I was on Sudafed for much of Thursday, and before I walked away from the internet for a few hours, I saw that Melania Trump had gone on a surprise visit to a Texas border town to do or say something about the fact that her husband’s administration has stolen 2300-plus children and babies and put those children in cages. My thought, at the time, was “what kind of dumbass White House would send the First Lady to offer some half-assed, bullsh-t assistance to the children that her husband has been terrorizing for weeks?” As it turns out, that wasn’t the worst part. I only saw the worst part hours later, once my Sudafed high had worn down. This was the worst part:

Yes. Melania Trump, First Lady of the United States of America, traveled to see the caged babies with her own eyes while wearing a “I Really Don’t Care, DO U?” jacket. Yes. That really f–king happened. It’s not fake news, it’s not a doctored photo. Melania’s spokeswoman event confirmed that Melania wore that jacket, and this was the OFFICIAL STATEMENT FROM THE FLOTUS OFFICE: “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.” Are you joking? As for what actually went down during her visit, she swanned around and wished “good luck” to the children in cages.
According to White House pool reports, Mrs. Trump toured two facilities run by the Department of Homeland Security during her trip to McAllen — the Ursula Border Patrol Processing Center, a Customs and Border Patrol intake center, and Upbring New Hope Children’s Shelter, a Health and Human Services grantee facility that currently houses about 60 kids (ages 5-17, though mostly teens) from Honduras and El Salvador.
Mrs. Trump spent a little over an hour with 55 children, most of whom were from Guatemala, at the Upbring New Hope Children’s Shelter. All but six of the children were unaccompanied minors, with the rest having been separated from their families, according to pool reports. She asked the children questions such as: “How long are you here?” “Where are you from?” and “Are you all friends?” As she left one classroom, she told the children, “Bye. Good luck.”
“Good luck.” Good luck with that, you heartless bitch. Add to all of that… Melania Trump is a g-ddamn immigrant. She came to this country on a temporary visa and reportedly she didn’t follow all of the immigration laws either. She really doesn’t care. DO U?
