CNN’s Brooke Baldwin asked how the media is not supposed to pay attention to what First Lady Melania Trump’s wears after a recent trip to Africa in which the first lady wore a hat that sparked outrage.

While visiting Nairobi National Park over the weekend, the first lady wore a hat that was “widely used by European militaries in their colonies throughout Africa and in India,” according to CNN on Monday.

CNN reported:

“The hat was widely used by European militaries in their colonies throughout Africa and in India, according to Gentleman’s Gazette, and became a popular sun hat for civilian Europeans visiting or living in colonies in the 1930s. US President Theodore Roosevelt wore his pith helmet while on the Smithsonian-Roosevelt African Expedition after his presidency in 1909.”

Baldwin ran a segment on Monday that highlighted Trump’s hat controversy.

CNN played a clip of Trump addressing the controversy. She told the media that she wished people would focus on what she’s doing, not what she is wearing.

“She says, ‘Please don’t focus on what I wear.’ How can we not?” Baldwin asked.

CNN’s White House reporter Kate Bennett told Baldwin that she didn’t think Trump wore the hat to send a message.
