her way to visit an immigrant children detention center in Texas on Thursday afternoon, First Lady Melania Trump wore what many considered to be the worst jacket possible, with a provocative slogan on the back that read: “I REALLY DON’T CARE, DO U?”

But the reaction to the $39 coat was so instantaneous and overwhelming that ZARA, the jacket’s manufacturer, along with the First Lady, immediately introduced a second coat in the line that read, “I HATE WETBACK KIDS, DO U?”

Asked why she would launch a line of controversial and seemingly heartless topcoats at a time when the entire nation is feeling deep sadness over the plight of families separated at the southern border, FLOTUS told reporters, “I am very concerned about the health and safety of those little illegals. But ZARA approached me with this idea to introduce a line of jackets that brings attention to the issue in an outrageous way and I said, ‘Hey, that’s what fashion is all about, let’s go for it.’ I think we have a big success here and I’m very excited.”

Ms. Trump, speaking alongside a ZARA representative, said that there are at least two more jackets planned for her shameless “Illegal Outrage” line, including one that reads, “LOCKING UP BABIES ROCKS, TRUE?” and a fourth with the slogan, “NO PARENTS, NO PROBLEM…SUCK IT UP!”

All four Illegal Outrage Jackets by Melania™ will be available at ZARA retail stores and its online shop this weekend, each selling for $39.

LATE BREAKING: After witnessing the massive social media response that her stepmother’s mean-spirited jacket received, Ivanka Trump announced late Thursday night that she will also be releasing a line of heartless garments under her own eponymous fashion brand. The first of the offensive items to arrive in stores will be a full-length, stone-washed duster coat painted with the message, “DREAM ON DREAMERS, HA HA HA HA!”
