For some reason, Donald Trump likes to wear his ties really long ― like down to his fly.
Since a tie that long can get caught in one’s zipper, it’s considered a fashion faux pas. Of course, so is holding a tie together with tape,
something Donald Trump has also done on numerous occasions.
University of Massachusetts psychology professor Susan Krauss Whitbourne speculates Trump wears his ties so long to either call attention to his genitalia
or take the focus away from his protruding gut.
But a new Twitter page, @TrumpsTies
, isn’t psychoanalyzing why the president’s ties are so long. It’s just taking his bizarre style choice to its obvious extreme.
The page's creator is a Chicago-based graphic artist hobbyist who doesn't want his name tied to the Twitter page. He insists it's not because he's afraid of being targeted by Trump trolls -- he just doesn't want his own identity to distract from the project.
The creator considers his edited photos of Trump's fashion choices to be "a Rorschach test of satire."
"People who are pro-Trump think it's cute," the creator said. "Anti-Trump people think it's funny, but less cute and more poignant."
Although Trump and some of his followers tend to shout "fake news" when they read or hear something they don't like about the president, the man behind @TrumpTies says there can be no argument about the president's taste in fashion.
"He wears his ties too long," the creator said. "That's factual."
The color of the tie doesn't matter, the creator said. What's important is how Trump is reacting to the other person in the photo. "But it's funny, how the tie becomes a character," he said.
The Twitter page has only been around since February, but has nearly 25,000 followers. The creator admits to hoping circumstances might change so he doesn't have to follow Trump's ties through two presidential terms.
"Even four years is a long time," he said.
Now maybe someone can focus on Trump's other ties -- the ones with Russia.
