A muted light blue? It’s for babies, not big, raw, masculine American presidents. Hence the new Air Force One planes, with a redesign being overseen by Donald Trump, will be RED! WHITE! AND! BLUE! for AMERICA!!!!!!
CBS Evening News anchor Jeff Glor spoke to Trump in Scotland this week and got this truly invaluable exclusive confirmation. “Air Force One is going to be incredible,” said Trump. “It’s gonna be the top of the line, the top in the world. And it’s gonna be red, white and blue, which I think is appropriate.” Axios broke the news of the all-important “more American” makeover last week, revealing that Trump calls the current, iconic shade of blue a “Jackie Kennedy color.”
Every king needs a state carriage, and Queen Elizabeth wouldn’t let him borrow hers, so he’ll just have to arrange an American equivalent. But not for him are the toned-down symbols of the past, meant to evoke democratic restraint (whether that was true in practice or merely theory). Just wait until they get Michael Bay to do Marine One.
