Trump is more than a poor dresser. His clothes are the sign of profound character failure.

🇺🇸 “… Trump is more than a poor dresser. His clothes are the sign of profound character failure.
His total misunderstanding of the most basic elements of formal dress, a misunderstanding he shares with his adult sons but not his son-in-law Jared Kushner, who dresses well, is flagrant evidence of the deep sources of his toxic masculinity. No one seems to have loved him enough as a boy to instruct him on key elements of self-presentation. Worse, he will not listen to experts. People laughed when the president wore a blue jacket and black pants, but think about what the mismatch meant: Did no one close to him tell him? Maybe no one could tell him. His staff is either profoundly unobservant or unwilling to confront him even with such a small and indisputable detail. What else can’t they tell him?
Trump’s outfits are the dressings of a vision of patriarchy that lacks many traditional manly virtues. For professional men, the question of formal wear is not, by any measure, as nuanced or difficult as it is for women. It’s not a reflection of personality to anywhere the same degree. It’s pretty simple really. You have to be able to follow protocol. You have to have enough money to go to a decent tailor. Then you have to know enough to know that the tailor knows more than you. That equation, simple as it is, requires virtues that are vastly more important than clothes—intelligence, restraint and humility. …” full story

[…As President Trump climbed out of his limo and into Air Force One in Minneapolis, an item that sure looked like toilet paper was seen stuck to his shoe. The White House has not commented on what it was. As he boarded the plane, the piece of paper was seen flapping on his heel as he headed up the stairs. The president turned to wave and the paper fell off as he went inside. Social media is going bonkers over the footage.]
