What Does It Say About America That Its President Uses Scotch Tape To Fix His Tie?

Submitted by: fancylad 2 months ago in Lifestyle


Trump was photographed walking off Air Force One on March 6, 2017 -- tie a-flowing.

Honest question: Is this the sign of a sloppy leader or does Trump just not bother with the small details like tie tacks?

I'd rather him use cheap scotch tape than buy a fancy what-have-you.

Not one comment commending him for reducing government waste?  Seriously, he fixed a problem for a fraction of a penny instead of having us tax payers foot the bill for a $50,000 tie clip (that's $5 for the clip and the balance for some clandestine operation...I haven't finished my coffee so you do the math)

Just big office supply lobby rearing its ugly head again. I always suspected that 3M had influenced the election. 

Think about it: who really benefits from undermining the integrity of modern elections and voting machines? If you use pens and paper to vote, who do you think profits?

holygod  Yes I was critical of the Obama shit at the time and still am he showed a lot of disrespect to the us and Americans in general But I also felt and feel that he has a right to show his patriotism as he feels. And some of it  did have apparently good reasons for the appearance of disrespect so mostly give it a pass. But this is tape on his tie for gods sake. Amusing yes some kind of a sign of mental illness and such as this is just showing the lack of good sense of some many people.

casaledana Yes, you were critical of it (my various posts), I do recall that.
But (unlike the IAB Trolls) you were on-topic and (iirc) polite about it :-)

Obama's actions were, however, highly disrespectful. Here? What has Trump done that disrespects anyone?

Every day the libs sink further and further into their sea of pettiness.

I don't like tie tack as it puts holes in the tie.

A clip is a better alternative. 

Had he done everything right concerning his tie, you would have bitched that it was a Communist Red tie.

So Sessions talked to a Russian Ambassador. He was on the armed services committee, and was not the only one on the committee or senator who had.

megrendel Russia was pulling for him in the campaign. His boy Sessions was talking with their ambassador and lied to congress about it. His boy Flynn was makin' deals under the table. He won't release his tax returns. There's the MI6 dossier on his relationship with Russia. There's him openly calling for Russia to hack Hilary during the campaign. 

Oh but we better have a few more hearings on these emails. No, not Pence's!

Filthy fucking republican hypocrites.

Yeah, I guess that's why they spent so much money bribing Hillary through the Clinton Foundation to get in her good graces when she lost.

Yeah, it's not like it's in a Senator's and Member of the Armed Services Commisttes's job description.

and lied to congress about it. 
Actually, he didn't.  Sessions was not a member of the Trump Campaign (which the question is about). And there very valid reasons why Sessions could meet with Russian Ambassadors that had nothing to do with Trump.

That's a hell of a lot better than what the definition of 'Is' is. 

He won't release his tax returns.
That's now a requirement to see the AG's tax returns?  Or are you talking about Trump's?  And where's the law requiring that?

There's the MI6 dossier on his relationship with Russia.
I'm pretty sure MI6 probably has a dossier on your relationships with goats, too.

There's him openly calling for Russia to hack Hilary during the campaign.
Yes, I realize that sarcasm is lost on some people.   And Russia had already hacked Hillary.  So asking them to 'find the 30,000 lost emails' would basically be looking through the stuff they already have.

I see no criticisms of the Democrat habit of having such shitty security that they are so easily hacked.  Funny that.

Look at you learning to suck the Trump cock like a good little soldier. Impressive and wrong on each part. Really impressive watching you bend over backwards (and forwards) to defend these criminals. Trump is only going to get worse and the loops your tiny brain is going to go through to defend him is just going to be spectacular. This is going to be worse than Bush for your party.

marsii He's done several things stupid, and I've called him on it. (The idiot needs to stay away from twitter.)

He has not done anything illegal, as much as your bile-spewing brain tells you otherwise.  If he does, I'll come down on him. 

Each of the points were correct. (Well, the part about the MI6 having a  dossier on your relationships with goats was just a guess.  I don't know if they've found out about it yet.)

Sessions answered the question correctly in context.  Was it the whole truth? Maybe, maybe not. It's way hypocritical that your side was willing to go through mental gymnastics in order to believe all Clintons' lies and yet start screaming now. 

And nothing could be worse the Clinton was for your party.  Totally destroyed it.

Didn't think that at all.

You may be too damn stupid to realize this, but I was ridiculing you for the way you were writing.  The way you wrote, the tax records could have pertained to Trump, Sessions or Flynn.

korahn He should be criticized, We would  have been severely reprimanded at the rehab center if we allowed a mentally disabled  client to go in public doing this and HE IS THE PRESIDENT FOR GOD SAKE! AND HE IS "AS HE SAYS" ONE OF THE RICHEST MEN IN THE WORLD. DOESN'T  HE HAVE THE MENTAL CAPABILITY TO SEE THIS IS THE TYPE OF BEHAVIOR A MENTAL DEFECTIVE WOULD DO?

I used to do that all the time, I refuse to wear ties now so it doesn't matter. But guys, I think fancy was just having a little fun and maybe even indulging in a bit of self-deprecation in a statement about how maybe he has gone way overboard with the endless complaints about anything and everything Trump. I hope.

Come on man. This is the kind of shit 5Cats would post about Hillary or Obama. If I made a list of the top 1,000 things that bother me about Trump this wouldn't make the cut. Seems like a perfectly reasonable, simple, and effective solution to a problem.

That's what I do too.  Not gonna go spend money on a tie tack when I wear a tie maybe 3-4 times a year at most.  Just shows that he's being thrifty, nothing more.  Now granted, he wears a suit most days and it shouldn't be a big deal for him to go pick up a few hundred of the things and have them around for when he needs them, but why bother when scotch tape works just fine?  He's just being thrifty and/or doesn't care about making a fashion statement with a tie tack.  This is not news and it's rather disturbing that anyone even cares about this.

Tie tacks poke a hole in your tie, making it un-wearable without another tie tack in it. Tie clips are less damaging, but not quite as effective.
Both can be seen from the front, which is fine unless you don't want something showing on the front of your tie...
Or he could use this one:
