Trump blames energy-efficient lightbulbs for his orange skin: ‘The light is the worst’

Published

President Donald Trump blamed his orange complexion on energy-saving lightbulbs.

The president complained Thursday during a speech at the 2019 House Republican Conference Member Retreat Dinner that the lightbulbs made him look bad on television, and the crowd laughed, reported NBC News.

“People said, what’s with the light bulb?” Trump told the crowd. “I said, here’s the story, and I looked at it: The bulb that we’re being forced to use — No. 1, to me, most importantly, the light’s no good. I always look orange.”

The president then told the GOP crowd they, too, looked orange under the lighting.

“So do you,” he said. “The light is the worst.”

The Trump administration last week announced they would roll back requirements for energy-efficient light bulbs enacted under two previous administrations.

Trump’s push to reopen schools appears to be blowing up in his face: polls

Published

President Donald Trump has been adamant that schools reopen in the fall, although he has given little to no guidance for how to do so in a way that won't lead to further eruptions of the novel coronavirus.

However, Business Insider reports that the president's rush to get schools open may already be coming back to bite him.

As evidence, the publication cited several national polls that show opposition to Trump's plans.
