First lady Melania Trump made rounds of appearances ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday this past week, including the White House’s annual turkey pardoning on Tuesday. By Thursday, Trump also managed to ruffle feathers on Twitter with her Thanksgiving tweet.

“Wishing you all a very happy Thanksgiving!” Trump wrote. “As we give thanks, let’s keep those who can’t be with their families in our thoughts today. #Thanksgiving.”

Critics wanted to know what Trump meant by this and if she was including troops who were on duty at the borders and children of immigrants who have been indefinitely separated from their parents because of President Donald Trump’s immigration policies.

One Twitter user responded, by asking, “Does that include families cruelly separated by your husband?” Another wrote to Trump, “Like the children that are still separated from their families? Or the military at the border awaiting a non-violent caravan?”

As of Friday morning, Trump hasn’t responded to those questions from concerned citizens. But let’s check out what she wore, shall we?
