A year-old photo of Melania Trump pantomiming gardening in Michelle Obama’s vegetable garden is getting a second life—as a meme.
Chrissy Teigen was among the first to contribute to yet another meme of the first lady.

The image shows Trump in an expensive Balmain plaid shirt and clean Converse sneakers, looking unnaturally posed as she tends to the White House Kitchen Garden that Obama founded, Business Insider reports
Twitter users took the opportunity to mock the first lady’s totally natural, not at all contrived stance.

This isn’t the first time Trump’s been criticized for the gardening outfit. Her tartan top sparked outrage for its $1,380 price tag when the photos first circulated last September.
“I question the morals and wisdom of someone who spends $1K+ on a gardening shirt that looks like something you can buy in Target for < $20,” one user wrote.

I can't imagine being so rich that buying a $1,000 flannel is normal. I don't want that life tbh.

Worker earning federal minimum wage working 40hours/week: monthly after tax income would be less than the cost of this casual work shirt.

Last month, Trump came under fire for wearing a jacket with the words “I DON’T REALLY CARE, DO U?” scrawled on the back before her visit to a shelter for immigrant children at the Texas-Mexico border.
