Statue Of Liberty Protester Mocks Melania Trump’s “I Don’t Care’ Jacket” At Her Court Hearing
Patricia Okoumou went to her court hearing trolling Melania Trump with a “Be Best” dress.

The protester arrested for climbing on the State of Liberty to protest Donald Trump’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy, trolled first lady Melania Trump in spectacular fashion by wearing a dress to court in the style of her “I don’t really care” jacket, as well as mocking her “Be Best” campaign.

The 44-year-old Patricia Okoumou who was arrested in 2017 for assaulting a police officer, wore a green dress with “I REALLY CARE – WHY WON’T U? Be BEST” printed on the back, lampooning Melania Trump’s $39 jacket from the popular European brand, Zara, that she wore in June as she headed to an immigrant children’s detention center in Texas.

“Be Best” is the name of the first lady’s campaign for children which she launched in May promoting children and fighting against cyberbullying.

On July 4, Okoumou arrived at the Statue of Liberty with Rise and Resist, an organization formed in 2016 in response to President Trump’s election. The group held up a banner that said “Abolish ICE!” When police started arrested activists, Okoumou stared to scale the 89-foot stone pedestal.

During the three-hour standoff with police officers, Okoumou said she wouldn’t come down until “all the children are released.”

Okoumou made an appearance in Manhattan Federal Court on Friday. She has been charged with trespassing, interference with agency functions and disorderly conduct, The Daily News reported.

Okoumou said she put herself “at risk for the children” and called Trump’s immigration policy “immoral.” She said of her protest: “I just wanted to do what is right.”
