The Internet is abuzz with memes and comments about President Donald Trump’s bathrobe selection after a bizarre series of events in which the White House eventually denied that he wears a robe to watch TV.

The New York Times published an article on Sunday that mentions Trump “watching television in his bathrobe,” which resulted in Press Secretary Sean Spicer deriding the article for multiple alleged falsehoods, adding, “I don’t think the president owns a bathrobe.”

Trump didn’t care for the story himself and took to Twitter to express his displeasure, saying the paper is “making up” stories and sources, with the bathrobe being a detail Trump doesn’t think came from a legitimate source.

“That story was so riddled with inaccuracies and lies that they owe the President an apology for the way that thing was written,” Spicer said. “I don’t think the president wears a bathrobe, and definitely doesn’t own one.”

Politico watchdogs were quick to offer old photos of Trump wearing a bathrobe that were part of a Daily Mail exclusive. But, in fairness, they appear to be at least a few decades old. We hope that if Trump does own a robe, it’s not the same one in the now-viral photos.

Trump’s bathrobe even has it’s very own Twitter account.
