Trump Jokes About Energy Efficient Light Bulbs: ‘I Don’t Want an Orange Look’

‘The new bulb is many times more expensive and I hate to say it, it doesn’t make you look as good’
By Grabien Staff

EXCERPT:

TRUMP: “And we’re doing other things. The light bulb. They got rid of the light bulb that people got used to. The new bulb is many times more expensive and I hate to say it, it doesn’t make you look as good. Of course, being a vain person, that’s very important to me. 

(laughter)

It gives you an orange look. I don’t want an orange look. Has anyone noticed it? So we’ll have to change those bulbs in at least a couple of rooms where I am in the White House. But we are going back to — it’s a double standard. We have a standard of the new bulbs and we have the old bulbs. And they are already making the old bulbs. Many people were complaining that the new bulbs were much, much more expensive, many times in some cases more expensive, and the other thing, they are considered a hazardous waste, that because it’s largely a gas technology, when the bulb is disposed of, you are supposed to bring it to a hazardous waste site. I said, how many people do that? Nobody does it.”
