It's no secret that President Donald Trump is perhaps the most image-conscious president of all time (very few commanders-in-chief of the past resort to calling their foes 'fat pigs.') According to a new a damning report from Axios, Trump is also very invested in his staff's appearance.
Coming from reality television, looking camera ready at all times is Trump's forté; accordingly, his staff must look the part. Male employees allegedly "need to have a certain look" which includes being "sharply dressed" at all times, usually with wide ties... preferably Armani. Axios' source claimed that Steve Bannon is exempt from these rules because "Steve is Steve."
But it gets worse. President Trump, allegedly, prefers female employees to "dress like women" — problematic phrasing, to say the least, even ignoring the deeply sexist implications. According to the source, women still feel pressured to wear dresses and skirts to work to adhere to the dress code.
From now on, we'll have to pay close attention to female staffers' attire to ensure that they are, indeed, dressed like women.
