After assuring the audience that his show had repeatedly verified the image "because we thought this has to be fake", Colbert showed pictures of Melania, en route to the detention centers, wearing a jacket that read, "I really don't care, do u?".
Let's talk about the outfit we all saw Trump wearing while arriving at Andrew's Air Force Base in Maryland, where she got on the plane that took her to Texas.
After Donald lifted an order to separate migrant children from their parents at the US/Mexico border in Texas, his wife Melania was spotted boarding a plane to go and visit the children who were affected. To say we stand with immigrants. Until that theoretical moment, we have the memes on one of the digisphere's most flawless blank canvases: Her green $39 jacket - one so five seasons ago, no less.

Following Melania's controversial appearance yesterday, Meredith Koop, the stylist to former first lady Michelle Obama, posted an Instagram message that emphasized the different messages conveyed by the women's sartorial choices.
The White House Director of Communications for FLOTUS, Stephanie Grisham, told Fox News Trump's jacket wasn't meant to send any kind of message. "She supports family reunification and wants to go see the facilities for herself and find out how she can help".
WTF??? Priest Slaps Crying Baby During A Baptism!
The shocked congregation can be heard to gasp at the strike from the priest and the scene that was unravelling in front of them. The horrified parents are at first anxious when the priest holds the baby in a vice-like grip to stop him from wailing.
Many critics have also highlighted the Trump family's obsession with their image, saying that it was highly unlikely the First Lady would have put on the coat without realizing the reaction it was likely to provoke.
But then there was the curiously juvenile Zara jacket, which had the words "I really don't care, do U?"
Because it was 80 degrees when Melania was wearing the jacket, and she kept it on right into The Oval Office, Melania was clearly intending to send a message.
"Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!"
She said: "Her goals are to thank law enforcement and social services providers for their hard work, lend support and hear more on how the administration can build upon the already existing efforts to reunite children with their families".
"Hey Melania. WE REALLY DO CARE!"
