The now-famous Statue of Liberty climber, Therese Patricia Okoumou, turned heads once again on Friday when she shared a chant slamming the United States outside of a courthouse following a hearing for her Fourth of July stunt in which she climbed the landmark.
Before she even uttered a word, Okoumou’s outfit spoke volumes, as she sported a green dress with the words “I really care, why won’t u?” on it — a swipe at first lady Melania Trump, who sported a jacket that read “I really don’t care, do u?” while visiting immigrant detention centers.

The dress also referenced the first lady’s Be Best campaign.
As the dozens of people gathered outside cheered her on, Okoumou chanted, “America, you motherf**kers! You drug addicts! You KKK! You fascist USA.”

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino ripped into her display a day later while joining “Fox & Friends.”
“They’re the anti-anti-communists. They’re against us. Everything we stand for, they’re against,” he said, referring to people on the left. “Whatever that was, that speech right there, that is who the radical far left is.”

Okoumou faces a year and a half in prison after she scaled the Statue of Liberty, forcing an emergency evacuation, and has been charged with trespassing, interference with a government agency, and disorderly conduct.
