The president is so far out-of-touch with reality that he just blamed Obama’s energy efficient lightbulbs for his bright orange glow. That’s right. The president thinks his skin looks orange because of lighting, rather than the bronzer and tanning bed he frequents constantly.
The white rings around his eyes are a clear mark of tanning bed goggles, but the president promises that his tan is natural, and that he would never tan (because that is something women do.)
Trump said this to House Republicans:
“People said, ‘What’s with the light bulb?’ And I said ‘Here’s the story,’ and I looked at it. … The bulb that we’re being forced to use, number one, to me most importantly, the light’s no good. I always look orange.”
“And so do you, the light is the worst.”
That’s right. According to the president, everyone looks orange under energy efficient lights. Everyone.
It’s like he thinks we don’t have eyes.
Trump is talking about lightbulbs because his administration just rolled back Obama’s energy efficiency standards on bulbs just for the hell of it.
He’s been talking about lightbulbs a lot recently, saying this at a recent rally in N.C.:
“I’m not a vain person. … But I look better under an incandescent light than these crazy lights that are beaming down.”
Trump’s new moves will ensure that Americans pay more in electricity because the old bulbs don’t last as long and use far more energy to produce light. The Department of Energy said this about the backwards move seemingly to spite Obama:
“This rule does not prevent consumers from buying the lamps they desire, including efficient options. The market is successfully transitioning to LEDs regardless of government regulation. Consumers are clearly taking advantage of the energy savings provided by LEDs.”
