I’d like to see him wear a kilt for a couple of weeks, though.  Just to see if anyone would start referring to him as “the kilt.”

Now Melania Trump posed for those pictures and knew they existed.  I would expect she is intelligent enough to not give a fuck that the Post published them.  Unless she should be getting royalties.  In which case they’d better pay up.
