The liberal Talking Points Memo reports that NBC is offering equal time to Republican presidential candidates following Donald Trump’s hosting gig on the former comedy show. Remarkably, Trump was only on air for 12 minutes. Hillary Clinton has also appeared in sketches on the show.
TPM’s tweet caught the eye of MSNBC host Christopher Hayes, but not because of the equal time offer.

Instead, Hayes saw the photo as an opportunity to rank the tailoring of the candidates’ jackets.
This photo does a good job of illustrating that Donald Trump's suit jacket is the best-tailored of the bunch. https://t.co/CZ0sxthZtI

You got a problem with that? Surprisingly, his observation sparked a good number of responses.

David Brooks isn’t going to like that. The president should have a perfectly creased pant. Unless, of course, that president is Carly Fiorina.

@chrislhayes Fiorina's actually fits better.

@chrislhayes I think Carly has the best jacket in that photo.
