How did I miss this little soupçon of crazy from yesterday?
So I was reading about the new (completely unnecessary) redesign of Air Force One and yawning along to the beat when this popped out at me:
Last July, Trump announced his intention to revamp the design of the aging fleet. But on Wednesday, during an exclusive interview with ABC News, Trump showed his plan to swap the iconic sky blue-and-white paint job for a patriotic red, white and blue.
“We had different choices, here,” Trump said, pointing to images he said he designed himself. “These are all slightly different.”
1) Are we really supposed to believe Trump redesigned the exterior paint scheme of a 747 all by himself, beyond insisting that it be red, white, and blue?
2) Why is the alleged president of the United States spending his time REDESIGNING AIRPLANE EXTERIORS!? He doesn’t have anything else to do? (Remember when Trump ghostwriter Charles Leerhsen said Trump was a terrible businessman who spent a great deal of his workday picking out fabric swatches? Here was the money quote: “But the main thing about fabric swatches was that they were within his comfort zone — whereas, for example, the management of hotels and airlines clearly wasn’t.” That sounds a lot like this.)
3) What. Thef*ck. Is. This?
Trump tells Fox he wants to redo Air Force One livery even though the iconic baby blue was “Jackie O.” He then says, “We have a new Jackie O. It’s called Melania.”

Is there anything this gauche turd won’t ruin? I can only imagine he’s looking at color swatches for the exterior of the White House as we speak.
