In former New Jersey Governor and Trump Sycophant Chris Christie‘s new, unnecessary memoir Let Me Finish: Trump, The Kushners, Bannon, New Jersey, And The Power Of In-Your-Face Politics, he relates that though Donald John Trump offered him advice that turned out to also hold the secret to his tie length: While campaigning for the presidency, Trump apparently strongly advised Christie to take up wearing longer ties, because they would make him appear thinner. That maxim seems to be true, because it certainly does takes one’s eyes off the rest of the wearer. It doesn’t hurt that Trump also only wears a dress shirt and tie with a suit coat or a blazer to hide his girth. I am not certain that there is anywhere, anytime, in GQ where readers are advised to use tape instead of a tie clip, but then the president doesn’t read (or take advice).
It’s been a while since we have visited our friend on Twitter, “Trump’s Ties”. That master of Photoshop, “Trump’s Ties” is one of our tweeting favorites. He / she is busy lampooning POTUS for his most distinguishing feature. No, not the nutty hair or the tangerine spray-on tan, but his damn too-long neckwear. It’s all in good fun, until POTUS finds a way to take it down. Here’s the link for more. Enjoy!
