Who's Got the Look? Donald Trump Runs for Stylist in Chief

Who's Got the Look? Donald Trump Runs for Stylist in Chief


The Republican candidate often casts himself as the standard -- even when it comes to who looks presidential.

Donald Trump says a leader must have a "presidential look." Whatever that is, he says Hillary Clinton doesn't have it.

"I just don't believe she has a presidential look," he told ABC News, "and you need a presidential look."

Some say that's a sexist reference to there never having been a woman president of the United States. OK, most people say that. Here's Chelsea Clinton saying that: "I would hope that everyone could see that as the sad, misogynistic, sexist rhetoric that I'd hoped we'd moved beyond in the 21st century, certainly in 2016," she said in an interview with The Patriot-News of Pennsylvania.

Maybe when Trump looks at the two women who have served as leaders of the United Kingdom, this is what he sees...

In his defense, Trump is the self-proclaimed authority on who looks tremendous. Remember when he was running against a woman in the primary? He claimed to have found her biggest problem: "Look at that face!" Trump told Rolling Stone. "Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?"

Maybe he'd have picked Carly Fiorina if she'd only looked more presidential...

We didn't realize until we took a closer examination that past presidents had actually looked a lot like Trump. Very classy...

Donald Trump does have a list of world leaders he admires. But even they could probably use a super-luxury makeover. President Vladimir Putin of Russia is looking very, very strong...


Then there's North Korea's Kim Jong Un. "How many young guys -- he was, like, 26 or 25 when his father died -- take over these tough generals, and all of a sudden ... he goes in, he takes over, and he's the boss," Trump told an Iowa audience, quite impressed. To be truly terrific, though, the dear leader could use a more presidential look...


Bashar al-Assad must have the presidential look. "I think in terms of leadership, he's getting an A," Trump told Fox News of Syria's leader.

But here's what an A-plus looks like...
