You Can’t Make This Up!

From the BBC: Melania wears ‘I don’t really care do u?’ coat on migrant visit. That is what it says on the back of her jacket. This is an actual coat that is for sale, not sabotage by someone with white shoe polish at her border visit.

I am not going to say anything about Eva Braun visiting a Kinderinterniertenlager [child interment camp or kinlag] 👿

I will note the increasing use of “proffer” and “feckless”, which are certainly relevant to the Trump maladministration, as are malfeasance, misfeasance, and nonfeasance.

Yeah. I did a bunch of Tweets about this. The brand of the jacket is Zara & they pander to the white supremacist types and have been accused of using child labor.

Jim Carrey @JimCarrey Tweeted:
“Nothing comforts a federally-abducted refugee child like a photo op with a Slovenian model wearing a coat that says she doesn’t give two craps about your misery.”

Here are some other examples of their products posted on T:

Seems like something Ivanka would be into. *shrug*

It’s a $40 dollar item. I can’t believe she owns a $40 dollar anything. Something doesn’t mesh ever since the surgery was reported. Wearing a jacket of any kind when the temperature is above 77°F is weird. Maybe it was for the plane ride.

Bryan, I can believe it’s a $40 item. “Shabby chic” is a thing, and Melania loves fashion. One reason she is miserable as First Lady is because she can no longer go to thrift stores and look for the next chic thing. Yes, she wore a lot of high end designer stuff over the years when appearing in more formal settings, but she has her own personal style that she wears in more casual settings that is a lot more… young?

I don’t know what to think about the jacket though. Does she even read English well enough to understand what it says?

Of course, there is always the Tracy Ullman theory about the Melaniabot… donkey guts! LOL. (And note the reboot song, you’ll recognize it immediately, Bryan 🙂 ).

Tracy has always been a hoot. Been a few years since I last heard that tune. 🙂

It is possible that she didn’t really understand the import of what was written, but her staff should have told her.OTOH, I don’t know why I should assume that her staff is any more competent than his is… not at all.

I really like Tracy Ullman – hope they don’t go after her for disclosing classified material-
but I hate to admit…I don’t recognize the song-I know I’ve heard it-wait wait-ok, I got it!

You reminded of a Soviet joke told by Mark Aleksandrovich, one of my instructors at the Defense Language Institute. In his version a man got drunk and staggered in the center of Red Square and started yelling: “Khrushchev is an idiot!”

After a few minutes he was arrested and hauled into court. After hearing the testimony the judge fined him 10 rubles for public intoxication, 10 rubles for disturbing the peace, and sent to a camp in Siberia for ten years for revealing state secrets…
