    *rump: “I look orange, and so do you, due to energy-efficient lights”

    I had to check to make sure this wasn’t The Onion.

    "The light is the worst," Trump said. His administration earlier this month announced it would roll back regulations for increased energy efficiency.

    "People said what's with the light bulb? I said here’s the story, and I looked at it: The bulb that we're being forced to use — No. 1, to me, most importantly, the light's no good. I always look orange," Trump said during a speech at a House Republican retreat dinner.

    The audience at the 2019 House Republican Conference Member Retreat Dinner laughed at the comment.

    It's not the first time the president has been described as orange. The hue of his hair and skin are often a source of jokes among his critics.

    He said he's not the only one that the bulbs affect: He told the crowd that they, too, take on an orange tone under the lights.

    The Trump administration last week said it would roll back requirements for energy-efficient light bulbs under two previous administrations.

    LED lights really make me look racist too.
