The strange way Melania Trump wanted to solve her biggest controversy of all time
Former press secretary Stephanie Grisham wrote of Melania Trump’s response to her “I really don’t care about you?” jacket in her book, “I’ll Take Your Questions Now: What I Saw at the Trump White House,” revealing the controversy that began even before Melania got off the plane. When Grisham asked about the jacket in the air, Melania reportedly gave him a stern look before suggesting a unique idea on how to downplay the controversy already underway.
“[Melania] asked if we should put a circle and cross the ‘don’ts’ part of the jacket, like reporters got it wrong, âGrisham said. Melania apparently didn’t realize photos and video of the jacket had already surfaced online. and the change would be obvious. Grisham also suggested that she not wear it when disembarking, although Melania refused because she didn’t want her to look wrong. It was then that Melania agreed to a statement being released claiming that she “had” I realized “the slogan and it was” just a jacket “.
But that take changed in October 2018 when Melania said ABC News she “was not wearing [it] for children “and the message was” for the people and for the left-wing media who criticize [her]. “She added,” I want to show them that I don’t care. You can criticize anything you want to say. But that won’t stop me from doing what I think is right. “
