Melania Trump Says She Wanted to 'Drive Liberals Crazy' With 'I Really Don't Care' Jacket in Leaked Audio

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff is continuing to reveal new details about her former best friend, former First Lady Melania Trump.

In a leaked phone call recording provided by Melania‘s former advisor and the author of Melania & Me, Stephanie revealed Melania‘s apparent true feelings about the “I Really Don’t Care, Do U?” jacket she wore back in 2018, which was first published on Hollywood Life on Tuesday (January 26).

If you don’t remember, Melania Trump was seen getting into her car in Texas after visiting children who had been separated from their families at the border wearing a $39 Zara jacket with the words: “I Really Don’t Care, Do U?” on the back, prompting plenty of backlash.

In the recorded phone call from Melania‘s former advisor, Melania is heard explaining that stylist Hervé Pierre had nothing to do with it, despite getting skewered on social media.

“We talked about it, he has nothing to do with that jacket. He knows he had nothing to do with the jacket,” she is heard saying on the call.

When told that her stylist was receiving hate for the jacket, Melania replied: “Oh yeah, but that’s expected… because you know because he’s helping me, but it’s not like that he’s dressing me all the time…I had the idea myself, he’s not like all the time that he’s the only one for everything.”

When asked by Stephanie why she wore it, Melania replied: “I’m driving the liberals crazy, that’s for sure. That’s you know, that’s what everybody’s like, Oh my god, this is the worst. This is the worst. They are crazy.”

“[Hervé] desperately wanted the world to know he had nothing to do with it, but Melania wouldn’t do it…it wasn’t a big deal to her to make sure that his reputation was taken care of,” Stephanie says of Melania‘s reaction.

Melania wore the jacket because she believed that if she hadn’t worn the jacket, she would have only been on the news for two minutes. Melania is about attention, not intention, and that’s what people have to understand, and that’s what I had to come to learn.”
