... The bulb that we're being forced to use, number one, to me most importantly, the light's no good. I always look orange," ...

No one is forcing anyone to use 2700K bulbs, which have more red than blue light to them.

Anyone can buy 5100K bulbs, which have more blue light than red to them.

All Pres Trump is complaining about here is his inability to pick the proper light bulb.

Or he finally realized he looks ridiculous with that fake Jersey Shore spray tan and needs to blame something other than this tasteless, classless moronic a--.

"The bulb that we're being forced to use, number one, to me most importantly, the light's no good. I always look orange."

Yeah, it's the bulb's fault because WHY DOESN'T ANYONE ELSE LOOK ORANGE?

Trump is basing a major energy policy on how weird he looks and how he has to blame it on something ridiculous. Great job, Trump voters.

Speaking of ridiculous, Trump makes an obvious joke, and you humorless prigs go ballistic. How do you prissies manage to get through life permanently constipated?

Whatever Trump injects in himself at 4:00 AM is what makes him look orange.

Yeah... keep telling yourself that. Snowflake gotta defend the snowflake-in-chief being a snowflake.

"I always look orange," Trump said, to laughter.

"And so do you, the light is the worst," Trump added.

"I'm not a vain person. ... But I look better under an incandescent light than these crazy lights that are beaming down," he said at a rally in Fayetteville.

Best point made so far.

Maybe it's the pancake makeup plastered on with a cement trowel.

I love how donald's defense team story is he is joking or trolling every time he says something stupid.

But to the same players, Joe Biden is a "Gaffe Machine".

Trump's assault on environmental standards is very real.

Trumpers joke about it.

Was the "Palmer Report" tweet inserted for laughs? Dude's a conspiracy nutter, a leftwing version of Alex Jones.

It is getting more and more difficult to tell when Pres Trump is making a joke and when he is serious.

Energy efficient bulbs make him look orange. Energy inefficient bulbs make him look orange. Light makes him look orange. (If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck and looks like a duck, it is probably a duck.)

Trumpers don't joke about it - they roll around with glee.

Changing the regulation regarding LED bulbs can be described as juvenile. We re-lamped some of the commercial property I formerly managed, and in my parking garages energy consumption went down 30%. A year later the demand charge also dropped. That's real money.

I'll bet lunch that Trump Hotels use LED bulbs many applications, because of the huge savings in energy cost and the additional savings from reduced labor, because bulbs are being changed every five years, instead of every six weeks. If Trump's properties do not use LED lamps, it's a sign of poor management--nothing else...

They are like Victorians who were scandalized by the sight of a woman's ankle. Amazing "evolution" from the edgy, liberated 60s which idealized transgressive behavior, comedy, etc. It's been replaced by leftist Stalinist scolds. Only thing missing, so far, is the gray, unisex Mao suits.

So good bet they don't.

How come those energy efficient bulbs leave the skin around his eyes looking pale then? You know - the part that would look pale if you were using tanning bed goggles?

This con man can't tell the truth about anything.

Nope just another piece of straw on the mountain of evidence that he's a complusive liar, and THAT is newsworthy.

That's what sharpiegate was about - evidence of a compulsive liar, egomaniac, and malignant narcissistic. Not the danger post by an inaccurate weather report.

#18 what's funny is watching you insert your 60 years out of date comments into every thread then schitting your depends because everybody points and laughs.

You're like that Brendan Frazier movie where he lives in a bomb shelter his whole life and comes out as an adult LOL

We can spot them just by using energy efficient bulbs? I went straight LED but I didn't know that a safety measure.

Your can used for $3, less than ten years old. They last forty. It's $12 for new.

I don't think his face is so much orange, more like the tone of gubmint cheese.

NPCs take notice and learn to re-code yourselves: being an orange man isn't what makes him bad.

Hell, according to you dems, half of the republicans are orange. Can't you come up with a better insult?

Trumps "jokes" are not funny. And it wasn't a "joke" if he was serious. And he was obviously serious.

Anyway.

The Joker is not funny.

It will be a nice changve for you Nulli... you can go down with him instead of on him.
