US President Donald Trump was seemingly amazed at seeing his own face and iconic hairstyle depicted on a pair of socks donned by… Louisiana Lieutenant Governor Billy Nungesser.
Upon Trump’s arrival at Chennault International Airport in Lake Charles, Nungesser showed off his flashy hose by lifting up his pant leg as the two were photographed shaking hands.
What is more, the pair comes with a mini comb, with the maker suggesting giving “The Donald the ‘do he deserves”: “Comb it! Clip it! Man bun it! Change the President's style to suit your mood!”
The lieutenant governor did not hesitate to share the photos of their exchange on Twitter with the hashtag #MakeSocksGreatAgain, and revealed that he had asked POTUS if he would support a local American Idol contestant who is among the talent show’s finalists:
I asked @POTUS today if he would tweet his support for @TheLaineHardy @AmericanIdol. I reminded him that LA supported him, while CA and NY, the homes of the other 2 finalist, did not. Trump responded and said, “Billy, I will see what we can do!” #MakeSocksGreatAgain pic.twitter.com/4E09MAIm38— Office of Lt. Gov. Billy Nungesser (@LouisianaLtGov) 14 мая 2019 г.
Given Nungesser’s bizarre choice of legwear, no wonder social media exploded with all sorts of reactions.
Many joked that it could’ve been made in China, just as the US is plunging deeper into the ongoing trade war with Beijing:
Made in China, of all places. Wonder if there is a tariff on those. #TrumpTradeWar— Sivako (@Sivako6) 14 мая 2019 г.
That is the tackiest crap I have ever seen, and I bet they are made in China.— Pat Henry (@PatHenry14) 14 мая 2019 г.
Others ridiculed Nungesser for apparently being “proud” of wearing those Donald socks…

…while fellow Twitterians suggested that the hair on the socks looked much better than Trump’s actual coiffeur:
Well, surprised tRump didn't get angry— Cathy Coleman (@CathyJoeGPT) 14 мая 2019 г.
the hair on the socks looks better

Sometimes the hair on the socks looks better than the hair on the head.— Jersey Swamp (@JerseySwamp) 14 мая 2019 г.
