On Wednesday while traveling on air Force One, Donald Trump went on a post-debate tweetstorm. In one tweet he bizarrely credited McDonald’s for his full head of hair.
‘No wonder I didn’t lose my hair!’ Trump tweeted, sharing a tweet by former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer from 2018. Fleischer’s tweet shared an article that stated a chemical in McDonald’s French fries could be the cure for baldness.
Fleischer, who is bald, had commented, ‘It doesn’t work.’
Trump then tweeted again a minute later writing ‘thank you Ari!’
Fleisher had served as press secretary under Republican President George W. Bush. Fleischer blamed Joe Biden for interrupting Trump on Tuesday during the presidential debate, which Fleischer claims set the tone for the entire debate.
‘I rewatched the start of the debate,’ Fleischer wrote. ‘The first question went to Trump who gave an uninterrupted 2-minute response. Then Biden gave an uninterrupted 2-minute response. Then it went back to Trump, whose answer was interrupted three times by Biden.’
‘If you didn’t like it, blame Biden for starting it,’ Fleischer said.
Trump’s tweet about his hair comes on the heels of the revelation that he wrote off $70,000 for hairstyling on his taxes.
Trump has long bragged about his hair in 2016 he even let “Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon mess up his “unique coiffure.” The appearance came right before his New Hampshire rally and was an effort to prove that he did not wear a wig.
Earlier in 2016, it had been suggested that Trump’s odd hairstyle was the product of a $60,000 baldness intervention which weaved a donor’s hair on top of Trump’s locks.
However, an expert on baldness spoke out and stated that it was more likely that Trump had a hair transplant.
In 2018, Trump admitted that he had a bald spot after his medical report from the White House physician, Dr. Ronny Jackson, showed that he was taking the male-pattern baldness drug Propecia.
Trump appeared at the Conservative Political Action Conference in 2018 and admired himself on the jumbotron, He patted his head and twirled around,
“I try like hell to hide that bald spot folks, I work hard at it,” Trump said laughing.
Michael Wolff’s book ‘Fire and Fury,’ author, Michael Wolff, quoted Ivanka Trump as she explained her father’s hairdo to her friends.
‘She often described the mechanics behind it to friends: an absolutely clean pate – a contained island after scalp-reduction surgery – surrounded by a furry circle of hair around the sides and front, from which all ends are drawn up to meet in the center and then swept back and secured by a stiffening spray,’ Wolff wrote.
“The color, she would point out in comical effect, was from a product called Just for Men – the longer it was left on, the darker it got,” Wolff said. “Impatience resulted in Trump’s orange-blond hair color,” the author added.
Trump continues to maintain that his hair is 100% natural.
