WTH? Melania Trump Wore This Racist Outfit While In Africa And Got Demolished On Twitter

Seriously, what was she thinking?

Published October 6, 2018

It is wrong to come to the conclusion that Donald Trump and his wife, Melania Trump has never gotten the memo when it comes to being culturally sensitive? We have to ask.

Yesterday (Oct. 5), while visiting Africa, Melania was spotted seated comfortably in the back seat of a Toyota Land Cruiser as she enjoyed a guided safari ride adjacent to the Nairobi National Park and people were left in shock at her choice of fashion.

  1. See for yourself Melania's bright white pitch hat, a common symbol of European colonial rule.

  2. As expected, Twitter quickly erupted with the hashtag #FLOTUSinAfricaBingo expressing annoyance at the sight of the "First Lady," wearing something so closely associated with the exploitation of Africans.
  3. ICYMI: This isn't the first time the 48-year-old was called out for her insensitive fashion choices.

    Back in June, while on the way to visit the detained migrant children in Texas, Melania was spotted in a “I really don’t care. Do U?” jacket. 

    SMH. When will she learn?
