During his trainwreck of an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos earlier this week, Trump revealed his new plans for Air Force One, complete with a new paint scheme that does away with the robin’s egg blue that’s been there since the early 1960s when John F. and Jackie Kennedy designed it — a color that Donald referred to as “Jackie Kennedy blue,” and we don’t think he meant that as a compliment.
To make matter even worse, Donald did an interview on Fox and Friends this morning in an attempt to do some damage control after the plethora of ignorant and downright criminal things he said a few days ago. After digging his hole a little deeper in regards to accepting foreign interference into the election, Trump revisited his plans for the new aircraft and went so far as to compare his former Playboy model wife to that of beloved former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis — HA!
“We have our own Jackie O, it’s called Melania, Melania T.,” Donald stated.
This is far from the first time that Trump has attempted to draw this type of comparison between his mailorder bride and her prestigious forerunners, often referring to Melania as a strong asset within the White House. And it seems even Melania herself admires her predecessor after she channeled a signature Jackie Kennedy look at Donald’s inauguration — donning a powder blue dress and long gloves.
Host Brian Kilmeade attempted to caution the president against such drastic changes, reminding Donald that the current style of the aircraft had been “iconic for so long.”
But unsurprisingly, Trump doesn’t give a damn, despite the fact that unless he’s reelected, he may never actually enjoy a flight in the new AF1 — it could take much longer than until after the next presidential election to complete.
“I like the concept of red, white and blue,” Donald replied. “It’ll look much better, actually. The baby blue doesn’t fit with us.”
Of course, it’s impossible to ignore the fact that Trump’s redesigned version of Air Force One bears a striking resemblance to his personal planes.
As we expected, Donald got himself brutally roasted for comparing his wife to that of an icon like Jackie Kennedy:
Jackie Kennedy was not a foreign hoe Jackie was a lady. Please do not disgrace Mrs Kennedy by saying your garden tool comes even close to being like Jackie Kennedy.

I don’t remember Jackie Kennedy posing nude. I DO remember her devotion to restoring the WH historically, her knowledge of and interest in promoting the arts, her international relationships, her writing skills and her public devotion to family, JFK and office of President.

Jackie O would roll over in her grave if she could see what the Trumps are doing and saying while in the WH. What a horrible joke for Trump to compare his wife to the beautiful Jackie Kennedy Onassis. pic.twitter.com/Z9HoJmoGMP

Oh, please. Jackie Kennedy had more style that 3 Melanie’s put together. She was also extremely smart and well educated. Michelle O was this generation’s Jackie O, but nobody on Fox would admit that.

Not even close, Donnie boy. Not even close.
