Trump Hates LED Lights Because They Make Him Look Orange

I wish that was a joke. But it's not.
“The lightbulb. People said what’s with the lightbulb? 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.”
Except that the only reason for Trump's orange look is Trump:
Tamzin Smith, a portrait photographer in Rockville, Md., pointed out that Trump’s orange complexion is visible even when he is photographed against white backgrounds. If bulbs were responsible for casting a warm glow, anything white in a photo of the president — including the background, a white shirt, or even his teeth — should also be orange.

“You can see that even when his teeth are white, his skin is orangey-red,” Smith said. “It’s definitely not the lighting.”
[Makeup artist Jason] Kelly said it is generally recognized among makeup artists that Trump’s application of bronzer is atypical. “When I see him, I see a line of oxidized bronzer around his hairline,” Kelly said. “The application is like a kindergartner did it.

“Bronzer shouldn’t be applied from forehead to chin. It’s meant to contour the face,” he continued. “Putting it all over is just going to make you go orange.”

I'm just happy I can get some 75 watts again. I got plenty of 60 and 40, but low on 75.

LED and even CFL bulbs are far superior than incandescent, earlier LED bulbs were too harsh of light and in the wrong spectrum but, that's been addressed but we all know this rollback is because Obama did it and Trump is going to undo everything that one did.

It’s not a matter of wattage, but lumens:

Replace a 75W bulb with an energy-saving bulb that gives you about 1100 lumens. Replace a 60W bulb with an energy-saving bulb that gives you about 800 lumens. Replace a 40W bulb with an energy-saving bulb that gives you about 450 lumens.

Come into the 21st Century. The water’s fine!

You could argue that Donnie is pushing gun control by allowing incandescent bulbs...

More incandescent bulbs...higher electrical usage...higher electrical bills...less money to spend on guns and bullets...gun control

The dim bulb in this story probably isn't LED, CFL, or incandescent.
