President Donald Trump arrived in southwest Louisiana on Tuesday for a campaign rally for energy workers.

As Air Force One arrived on the tarmac, Lieutenant Governor of Louisiana Billy Nungesser approached Trump, ready to show off some socks he'd gotten just for the occasion.


See for yourself.

The navy socks feature a portrait of Trump with unkempt, faux blonde hair.

Though Nungesser seemed pleased, the socks were widely panned on the internet.

Many criticized the Lieutenant Governor for a show of appreciation that veered into 'creepy' at a blistering pace.

Trump's ensuing rally went on without any hindrance to the displays and actions this country has grown used to seeing. Trump repeated the familiar myth that wind turbines—or "windmills" as he calls them— don't store energy, but rather provide it in real time. Trump assisted to lukewarm applause that the wind turbines would stop supplying patterns if the wind happens not to be blowing that day.

Nevertheless, Trump supporters cheered as his remarks on energy devolved into a full blown campaign speech.

Already?

After weeks of enduring the impeachment trial against him in the Senate, President Donald Trump was likely grateful to be in a venue filled with people willing to praise him.

The President spoke at a rally in Wildwood, New Jersey, but at multiple points during the speech, his words got ahead of his thoughts.

At one point, Fox News—which was covering the event—decided to cut away, amid stifled laughter from the hosts.

The United States, unlike North Korea and other nations President Donald Trump admires, does not have an official state media channel where the federal government can push propaganda.
