I'm not really outraged by what the Trumps say and do anymore, these things aren't errors of judgement, it's who they are, they really don't care except about their egos.
This is the current climate, doubling down works, being nice does not.
Which Michelle Obama speech did she get the qoute from?
Meh I think she's just screwing with everyone, I get the impression she might just not give a fk full stop.

I wonder. I think it's always tempting to think that Trump and the Trumps are just plain dumb. However, I suspect there's always a bit more animal cunning and mendacious scheming than meets the eye. Trump has been skilled at playing to the lowest bases and manipulating them and the family has a feel for power and money that means they always place their own interests first.
If we just look at the clothes thing, the First Lady has about a dozen people taking care of her wardrobe and working with her on what to wear, so it's a huge stretch to think this was something random and unplanned.
It wasn't unplanned.
I think the comment wasn't directed at the children or the public. I think it was directed at President Trump. The fact that the President and his wife's staff haven't got their story straight between them; he suggesting it was a comment on fake news, her staff that it was of no political significance, speaks volumes.
Read the message as if Trump had attempted to dissuade his wife from going to Texas because he thought it would look weak and draw attention to his change of policy.
Then she is saying "I really don't care" to Trump's wishes. She is going to Texas anyway. "Do you?" isn't then about Trump's wishes regarding her visit. "Do you" is "do you, President Trump care about the children".
This is a marriage in trouble because fundamentally Melania is a decent individual who just wanted a rich play boy to fund her lifestyle. She never auditioned to be Lady Macbeth.
