The White House press team presumably believes that the country expects to see the president getting to work, even when not feeling well.
But, the tie-less look can show the public that they're still a little under the weather.
People took to the comments of @guy_freire's post to make jokes and questioned what they saw in the photos.
One wrote: "These men both look like they are taking a scavenger hunt at the retirement home a little too seriously."
"Imagine we had a President who spoke about work/life balance instead of pretending to be worked to the bone like the rest of us," another added.
A third posed the questions of taxes and wrote: "Now that I think about it…. Why do the presidents work with spiral notebooks and Sharpies exclusively? Like SURELY our taxes have paid for a laptop, yeah?"
Someone else added: "This is a very good idea. No tie: sensibly stepping back for a few days. Paperwork: but not taking it too easy, still doing the day-to-day stuff."
