Culture Donald Trump As the rest of the world absorbed the death of Senator John McCain, and a series of scandals surrounding his father, Donald Trump Jr. spent Sunday leading the charge against men's lingerie. The president's oldest son took to Twitter in order to share his disdain for an article in the British tabloid The Daily Mirror that highlights an alleged trend of men wearing "lacy lingerie" for their wives. Trump Jr. has long styled himself a "S'mores by the campire" brand of outdoorsman who wears baseball caps and flannel shirts. And for The Trump Organization executive, this trend went too far and his followers immediately began ridiculing the Australian clothing brand as part of a larger "feminization" of "confused" American men. Donald Trump Jr. used his Sunday to lead the charge against an alleged trend of men wearing "lacy lingerie" for their wives.

In 2016, presidential candidate Trump challenged a critic, Mayor Sadiq Khan of London: “Let’s do an IQ test,” as if intelligence testing were a board game, or an arm wrestling match.Lately, Trump has been tossing around his crazy epithet “low IQ,” as in “very low-IQ individual Robert De Niro” or “low-IQ Mika Brzezinski.” I wonder if anyone other than De Niro’s mother has ever fretted about her son’s being Mensally challenged. He’s a great actor; does he need great board scores too?Trump is not the first politician to ply these waters.
