Madame Tussauds’ Donald Trump Gets a Retirement Makeover
Even though Donald Trump refuses to accept that he lost the presidential election, the folks who run Madame Tussauds London wax museum already have moved America’s 45th president out of the Oval Office and given him a retirement makeover.
Stylists at the famed London attraction have swapped out Trump’s signature dark suit, white shirt and red tie in favor of golf attire. In announcing the update it tweeted: “His campaign may not have been a hole in one, but @realDonaldTrump is now on course to dedicate more of his time to his favourite sport as #MadameTussaudsLondon re-dresses his figure in golfing attire to reflect his potential 2021 wardrobe.”

Twitter pretty much exploded Monday afternoon when presidential historian Michael Beschloss tweeted out a picture of a Madame Tussauds stylist adjusting a red Keep America Great golf hat on the head of the wax effigy.
Not surprisingly, reaction to the new look Trump has been harsh, questioning why the wax version doesn’t reflect Trump’s actual current size and shape and why the outfit isn’t an orange jumpsuit. Some observed that he played so much golf in the last four years that the golf attire should be considered his true presidential outfit rather than the suit.
What? They couldn’t find an “orange jumpsuit” and shackles?

His Wax figure is as big a lie as he is.
Retirement clothes. Never has he dressed as stylishly as depicted.@MadameTussauds also have him about 100 pounds less then he weighs.
They must have gotten his weight from Ronny Jackson.

He spent nearly a year of his four year term, golfing. It's not retirement clothing.

One alert viewer wondered if the wax museum had “gotten their Kelly Loeffler back yet – I heard she was on display in Georgia the other night.”
Have they gotten their Kelly Loeffler back yet? I heard she was on display in Georgia the other night.

And then there was his expression of concern for the physical well-being of the museum stylist.
It's so lifelike I'll bet it tried to grab her just after the pic was shot.
