The protester arrested scaling the Statue of Liberty wore a dress to court Friday lampooning Melania Trump’s controversial jacket she wore while visiting a child detention center near the border.

Patricia Okoumou’s green dress read, "I really care, why won't u? Be Best."

The outfit was a parody of the first lady's "I really don't care do u?" jacket she wore in June while on a visit to an immigrant children detention center.

Okoumou, 44, showed off the dress after an appearance in Manhattan Federal Court on charges of trespassing, interference with agency functions, and disorderly conduct for her July 4 protest.

Joined by dozens of supporters, she said she was trying to bring attention to President Trump’s child separation policies.

But so far, the campaign aimed at improving children’s lives has struggled to gain momentum.In May, Trump launched her signature initiative, Be Best, as a campaign aimed at improving children’s well-being, but it has been slow to take shape. Last week, Trump’s 28-year-old policy director, Reagan Hedlund, a former Hill staffer and National Security Council executive assistant tasked with leading the first lady’s initiatives, left her job.
