Earlier this month, Donald Trump announced that he planned on rolling back energy efficiency requirements for light bulbs, which were scheduled to go into effect next January. On Thursday night, we found out why he feels so strongly about light bulbs—he believes that energy-efficient light bulbs are the reason he looks so orange, as opposed to, say, the self-tanner that he is widely believed to smooth on his face with his small, boyish, much paler hands.
“The light bulb. 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 to a room full of House Republicans.
“And so do you,” he added. “The light is the worst.”
