Man's Pro-Trump Outfit Steals the Show at 144th Kentucky Derby

Fashion at this year’s Kentucky Derby wasn’t all floppy hats and fedoras.

One fan of President Donald Trump was wearing his loyalties on his sleeve — literally.

As the Independent Journal Review put it, it was a fashion statement to last a lifetime.

Mark Lamkin, a Louisville, Kentucky, resident, one-time contestant on Trump’s reality-show series “The Apprentice” and current CEO of Lamkin Wealth Management sported a Derby suit rigged out with the likeness of the 45th president.

And if Justify was the winning Derby favorite in the run for the roses, Lamkin’s suit made him a lot of fans, too.

Take one look, and you can see why.

The man who posted that tweet is Chris Valletta, a former professional football player who was also fired by Trump as a contestant on “The Apprentice.”

Obviously, the two men don’t bear the current chief executive any hard feelings.

And neither do a lot of Twitter followers.

Being president, Trump was occupied with other matters besides the Derby on Saturday.

According to CBS News, he was in Cleveland, touting the benefits of the Republican tax bill that passed in December and has been boosting the economy ever since.

Even liberal outfits that opposed the bill, like The New York Times, are seeing its benefits.

But since Trump is an American, he likely got in front of a TV for the 6:46 p.m. Eastern Daylight post-time to watch “The Greatest Two Minutes in Sports” go off — and see some of the best in fashion that Louisville had to offer.
