Trump returns to the White House with fresh color on the old face

Over the weekend, a tweeted photo of President Donald Trump made the social media rounds. In it, Trump is captured walking on the South Lawn of the White House grounds on Friday.

Now, Friday was a very windy day in Washington as a front blew through and the temperature dropped from the 60s in the morning to the 30s in the afternoon. That wind blew the President’s hair backward on his head as the photo was taken — and revealed what appeared to be a dark layer of make-up (or self tanner) around Trump’s face and abruptly ending at his jawline. Dark and then, suddenly, stark white.

“More Fake News,” he [Trump] wrote about the picture…

…looking for a photo of the same moment from another photographer — and this is what turned up…

Here’s what we do know from looking at the Reynolds image: Trump’s face is two different shades. Is it heavy makeup? Is it a tan?

The Fake President’s handlers have a few choices. None wish to admit to ManTan vanity. Least of all the Phony-in-Chief.

Spending $150K on Sarah Palin’s clothes was a “strategic decision”

The Republican National Committee has spent more than $150,000 to clothe and accessorize vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and her family since her surprise pick by John McCain in late August.

According to financial disclosure records, the accessorizing began in early September and included bills from Saks Fifth Avenue in St. Louis and New York for a combined $49,425.74.

The records also document a couple of big-time shopping trips to Neiman Marcus in Minneapolis, including one $75,062.63 spree in early September.

The RNC also spent $4,716.49 on hair and makeup through September after reporting no such costs in August.

Politico asked the McCain campaign for comment, explicitly noting the $150,000 in expenses for department store shopping and makeup consultation that were incurred immediately after Palin’s announcement. Pre-September reports do not include similar costs.

The campaign does not comment on strategic decisions regarding how financial resources available to the campaign are spent,” she said.

Later on they backed down and said the goodies will go to charity after the election.

Poor Sarah. She doesn’t get to keep the Party favors. OTOH, if they put her outfits up on eBay, I’ll bet they turn a profit.
