On the night that the House of Representatives voted to impeach President Trump, he delivered a two-hour campaign rally speech that took a detour — into the bathroom. His long riff about plumbing, household appliances and lightbulbs had the crowd in Battle Creek, Mich., cheering and laughing along.

"I say, 'Why do I always look so orange?' You know why: because of the new light," Trump said in a complaint about energy-efficient lightbulbs. "They're terrible. You look terrible. They cost you many, many times more. Like four or five times more."

Trump has long railed against clean-energy-producing wind turbines, but recently he has added lightbulbs and other household items to his repertoire. It's an unusual political rallying cry, but it's one that fits with Trump's deregulatory agenda.
