Unpresidential? Donald Trump slams ‘sloppy’ Obama for not wearing tie in big interview

obama-on-foxDuring a phone interview Monday on “Fox & Friends,” business magnate Donald Trump slammed President Obama for not wearing a tie in his Super Bowl pre-game interview with Bill O’Reilly, calling it “sloppy” and “not presidential.”

Trump was “impressed” that Obama did the interview, but said, “I definitely think he should have worn a tie.”

“You know, he’s the president of the United States,” Trump added. “Let him put on a tie. Bill was wearing a tie, not that he has to follow Bill. But Bill was wearing a tie. He’s the president. It’s a formal position, I think he should wear a tie.”

“What message is he sending by not?” host Elisabeth Hasselbeck asked.

“It’s sloppy, it’s not appropriate, it’s not presidential,” Trump replied. “He’s the president of the United States, let him put on a tie.”

On his own show Monday, conservative firebrand Glenn Beck offered his take on the incident, saying Obama was likely told not to wear a tie to look more like “the common man,” according to The Blaze.

Nonetheless, this was not the first time a president has done this.

Former President George W. Bush did a pre-game interview before the 2004 Super Bowl in casual attire, Raw Story reported. It was a remote interview in a less formal setting, with Bush standing in the Rose Garden — the discussion centered primarily on sports.
