The first lady's spokesperson said the jacket wasn't meant to give off any "hidden message."

"After today's important visit to Texas, I hope the media isn't going to choose to focus on her wardrobe," Stephanie Grisham told reporters.

Hours later President Donald Trump chimed in and claimed that the jacket message refers to "fake news."

The awkwardness of the situation wasn't lost on many online, including Dictionary.com, who said it showed indifference.
