President Obama did an interview with Bill O’Reilly on Fox before the Super Bowl and, as President Bush did before him, he wore a suit and dress shirt but no tie. That seems to have set off Donald Trump, who coincidentally sells ties. He went on Fox and Friends and brought the stupid.
“I definitely think he should have worn a tie,” Trump complained to the hosts of Fox & Friends on Monday. “You know, he’s the president of the United States, let him put on a tie. Bill was wearing a tie, not that he has to follow Bill. But Bill was wearing a tie. He’s the president. It’s a formal position, I think he should wear a tie.”
“What message is he sending by not?” Fox News host Elisabeth Hasselbeck wondered.“It’s sloppy, it’s not appropriate, it’s not presidential,” Trump opined. “He’s the president of the United States, let him put on a tie.”
“Mr. Trump, you make neckties,” co-host Steve Doocy pointed out. “You should send the president a couple of them.”
“You know, that’s a great idea,” the billionaire mogul replied. “You just gave me a great idea. Right out or Macy’s, I’ll send them immediately. But I do mean that and that has nothing to do with my ties. I mean, that has to do with the fact that he’s the president, and in my opinion, that’s what he should be doing.”
Someone who has spent the last few decades going out in public with a prairie dog pelt on his head is criticizing someone else’s fashion sense. You can’t make this shit up.
