It was recently revealed that President Donald Trump reportedly prefers his employees to stick to a specific dress code—including the request for his female employees to "dress like women...even if you're in jeans, you need to look neat and orderly." We know howthe Trump women dress, but the internet clapped back to show how other women across the country—doctors, soldiers, and even astronauts—actually dress.
It's worth noting that Trump also has a specific dress code for men, which includes being sharply dressed, wearing solid colors, and having well-groomed hair. Which basically means look professional—not quite as offensive as "dress like women." Because WTF DOES THAT EVEN MEAN?!
Here's a look at some of the best tweets that show President Trump what it means to #DressLikeAWoman.
