Melania Trump had something in mind when she wore her infamous “I don’t care” jacket, according to a report.
Melania Trump and Stephanie Winston Wolkoff were good friends before their falling out, and the FLOTUS would have saved herself from trouble if she helped the latter at the inaugural dispute. She failed Wolkoff, and the latter leaked a recording of their phone call when the former first lady talked about her “I don’t care jacket.”
Melania Trump explained the ‘I don’t care’ jacket controversy
Stephanie Winston Wolkoff shared the recording of her conversation with Melania Trump about her infamous jacket with Hollywood Life. In their conversation, the Melania & Me author asked the ex-FLOTUS why she wore the wardrobe when he visited the children who had been separated from their families at the U.S. Border in June 2018.
Wolkoff was concerned because many blamed her stylist Hervé Pierre for the hateful and insensitive message. Melania explained to Wolkoff that she already talked to Pierre, and she made it clear that he had nothing to do with the jacket.
Melania’s former BFF stressed that she was only sharing what Pierre told him because a lot of people sent hateful messages to him over the jacket controversy. Melania understood that what happened was expected because he helps dressed her. However, the former first lady stressed that Pierre is not her sole stylist. So, Wolkoff asked Melania again why she chose to use the controversial apparel.
“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,” Melania said while laughing in the recording.
Wolkoff, apparently not happy with what Melania did, slammed Donald Trump’s wife. For her, Melania felt it was not a big deal because Pierre had nothing to do with it. However, the former first lady failed to make sure that the stylist’s reputation was taken care of, Wolkoff added.
Stephanie supported Melania
Stephanie Winston Wolkoff was the only person who supported Melania Trump. The former events planner for Vogue also wanted to protect the first lady from Ivanka, she was the one who helped Melania with everything, the source claimed.
However, they had a falling out when Wolkoff was accused of overspending at Trump’s inauguration in 2017. Wolkoff and Melania were working together to organize the inauguration, so she felt betrayed that the first lady didn’t help her with the allegations against her.
“Was I fired? No,” she said. “Did I personally receive $26 million or $1.6 million? No. Was I thrown under the bus? Yes.”
