Melania Trump's jacket skewered by celebrities from Chelsea Handler to Jim Carrey

Melania Trump's jacket skewered by celebrities from Chelsea Handler to Jim Carrey

You could say the jacket's message is a fitting metaphor for the first lady's attempts at softening some of the president's more brutal and unpopular policies, in that it completely undermines them.

She continued: "While we're going through that process she's going to lend her support and promote family reunification and I'm sure she'll continue to give her husband opinions on what she's thinking along the way".

The green hooded spring military jacket has the words written graffiti-style on the back.

When Melania asked at the shelter what could be done to quickly reunite the families, she was sitting next to the Trump administration responsible for doing that, Alex Azar, Health and Human Service Department Secretary.

However, Melania was not wearing the jacket when she landed in McAllen, Texas. "That's like saying if you play an Aerosmith song forwards, it contains hidden messages about love in an elevator".

"This is what first ladies often do", Colbert said.

President Trump has been receiving constant backlash from people around the world for his immigration policies which is affecting migrant families across America. So maybe Grisham winds up guilting the media into ignoring or underplaying the jacket story - particularly given the ongoing border crisis, in which more than 2,000 kids have been separated from their parents as a result of the ramped-up "zero-tolerance" policy.

Speaking on Today Friday, respected journalist Peter Alexander said: 'Nobody knows exactly what to make of it, but speaking to anybody who knows Melania Trump, and they will tell you that nothing the former model does is accidental'.

UPDATE: Melania Trump's spokeswoman denies that the first lady was trying to send any message with the garment she picked out to wear during a highly visible public event.

Just yesterday, Trump signed an executive order ending the child separations at the border which have dominated the headlines over the past week. The first lady has spearheaded a "Be Best" initiative, whose primary aim is to promote healthy behaviors among children, but child health experts have said that the practice of taking children from their parents has detrimental effects to their long-term health.

"Remember when Michelle Obama showed her bare arms and went to an oil spill, and Fox News went nuts?"

Grisham had earlier bashed the media for paying so much attention to Melania Trump's sartorial choices.
