The left is too sensitive, what do you think?
The White House shot back after social media consumers attacked first lady Melania Trump for a jacket she wore on Wednesday’s 18th anniversary of the 9/11 terror assaults in a picture tweeted by President Trump.
White House spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham, who had earlier collaborated with the first lady, informed USA Today that it was “ridiculous” to call the jacket insensitive by some Twitter users.
Some Twitter users observed that the ribbon on the back of the jacket of the first lady seemed to resemble a skyscraper with a smaller object floating nearby, which some said reflected the aircraft-struck pictures of the World Trade Center.

This is the part I can’t get past.
It’s the “I don’t care, Do U?” 2.0.
That’s not ‘shopped. That’s what both Don and Melania posted.

The fashion choices of the first lady are often heavily scrutinized on social media, and Melania Trump faced similar controversy after traveling alongside the president to the border to inspect conditions while wearing a jacket emblazoned with the phrase “I really don’t care. Do u?”
Last year, Grisham, then the spokeswoman for the first lady, shot back at the press, encouraging the media to concentrate on significant problems.
“If media would spend their time & energy on her actions & efforts to help kids — rather than speculate & focus on her wardrobe – we could get so much accomplished on behalf of children,” she said at the time.
