    During the House Republican Conference Retreat Dinner in Fayetteville, North Carolina, US President Donald Trump decided to let his audience in on why his skin has such an orange glow: energy-efficient light bulbs (apparently)!

    Blame It On The Bulb

    It would appear Mariah Carey, who is “allergic” to fluorescent lights, is not the only public figure who is very particular about their lighting, because Trump took time out of his Thursday night retreat speech to express his own grievances about the energy-efficient lights versus old incandescent bulbs.

    "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,” Trump said Thursday night, much to the delight of the crowd.

    Considering the current administration's rollback of Obama-era energy efficiency guidelines, perhaps the US president can take a page out of Mimi’s book and change his hue by traveling with his own lighting crew!

      In recent weeks, US President Donald Trump has been so focused on his domestic agenda of preserving statues and monuments that his campaign has apparently extended the policy to foreign nations, vowing to protect Brazil’s most iconic statue from “left-wing mobs.” Huh?

      US President Donald Trump seems to be more concerned with the defense of monuments than protecting his own citizens from dying of the COVID-19 novel coronavirus.
