A Louisiana governor went the extra mile for his presidential meeting by wearing "Trump socks." He proudly modeled it for the cameras, too.
President Donald Trump seemed to be impressed by Billy Nungesser's socks which bore an eery likeness to the president's face, complete with protruding hair. Photos are found below.
The two shook hands at the Chennault International Airport in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Before they could leave the airport, however, Nungesser was eager to show off his special footwear.
Pictures show as he lifted his pants up to reveal socks that featured a white Trump image wearing a blue suit with a red tie. The kicker was the blonde hair at the top which was stuck on.

The piece could have blown in the wind with the length it had going for it. According to Footwear News, the socks are made of a mix of cotton, polyester, and spandex. Similar pieces go for less than $40 on Amazon.com.
Nungesser shared that he wore the socks as part of a plan to persuade Trump to tweet out a message of support for "American Idol" finalist Laine Hardy of Louisiana.
He wrote in a tweet:
“I asked @POTUS today if he would tweet his support for @TheLaineHardy @AmericanIdol. I reminded him that LA supported him, while CA and NY, the homes of the other 2 finalists, did not. Trump responded and said, 'Billy, I will see what we can do!' "
Online, persons were thoroughly amused by Nungesser's sock selection. Michael Kluver on Instagram joked that "the sock's hair looks more natural [than Trump's]." It's well known that the president wears a toupee.
However, in Trump's earlier years as a businessman, he did have his own strands. Back in the 80s, Trump began parting his hair from left to right, his current signature way of styling his new hair.

Trump's natural hair color was actually dark brown. He changed it in 2000, matching his eyebrows to the new blonde look. He wore a mix of blonde and brown until 2006. Then, he stuck with the blonde look, and his signature comb-over came to life since then.
Nungesser clearly chose a playful way to assure the president that he's on his side. It reminds us of the time Trump visited kids at the Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio last year August.
Beckley boy Zari got a once in a lifetime experience on August 24 when the president and his wife visited him to read his book, "How I Became A Superhero."
The literary piece was written as an encouragement for medically vulnerable kids. The exceptional young writer was called a "young entrepreneur" by Trump. Amanda said Trump "spent time engaging with Ashton, asking him about his book..."
It sounds like little Zari, who was fighting chronic kidney disease, bilateral vesicorectal reflex, and hydronephrosis, was just as excited to meet the president as Nungesser was.
