Melania Trump showed up to a shelter for immigrant children but her choice of fashion sparked the ire of many in the mainstream media and popular culture. One popular figure to criticize the FLOTUS was the wife of Eddie Vedder, Jill, who got on stage at a Pearl Jam concert in Milan, Italy, with a jacket embroidered with the words on the back, “Yes, we all care, why don’t you?”
The First Lady of the United States got in trouble for wearing a green coat from Zara which had the words “I really don’t care, do you?” across it in white lettering.
Those who own the item are now selling it for nearly ten times the price due to the fact that Melania made it so popular – but clearly, for all the wrong reasons.
Initially, the Spanish retailer sold the jacket for the price of $39 but is now costing buyers between $610 and $895. Currently, on the online retailer, eBay, they have two at the two prices just mentioned.
The stores online stated they had bought the jackets from Zara around two or three years ago. Another user sold the coat for a price of $500 on Tuesday.
Other companies are selling items using the similar idea, however, with the words changed to, “I really do care, why don’t you?” And some users are even interested in buying the jacket as a Halloween costume, definitely an original way of capitalizing on a political scandal.
As it was previously reported, Melania visited immigrant children on the border of the United States and Mexico following the migrant crisis whereby the policies enacted by Trump’s administration led to the separation of children from their parents.
The result was possibly one of the biggest scandals so far this year, with around 2,200 children taken away from their parents by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency, an independent bureaucracy dealing with issues of immigration and border control.
