Something --else-- to remember Trump for!

This is the first time I've ever read anything about The Orange One that has made me laugh out loud! Clearly, there's nothing else of concern in the USA right now and so attention can easily be turned to him washing and styling his hair.

The US government has proposed changing the definition of a showerhead to allow increased water flow, following complaints from President Donald Trump about his hair routine.
The changes were proposed by the Department of Energy on Wednesday following complaints by Mr Trump at the White House last month.

"So showerheads - you take a shower, the water doesn't come out. You want to wash your hands, the water doesn't come out. So what do you do? You just stand there longer or you take a shower longer? Because my hair - I don't know about you, but it has to be perfect. Perfect," he said

You'd think Melania would have a word, wouldn't you. He's overdoing the fake tan as well.

He also said the water restrictions mean you have to flush the toilet 10 or 15 times!!!

Do you know anyone other than Trump who needs to do that??

Noooooo!
Have you seen his vicious comments about kamala harris ?

I'd really rather not think about the reasons for that NotSpaghetti! envy not envy

I have heard that he takes a medication to help keep his hair. It has been discovered that it has a side effect of shrinking the prostate which is beneficial to some with problems in that area.

If that's true shysal I don't think it's working! grin

I thought that this had to be fake news.
But no.

This person is supposed to be leader of the so-called free world
😫😫😫

We have some troll dolls somewhere with hair like that

Nice to see he has his priorities right.🙎

"Under a 1992 law, showerheads in the US are not allowed to produce more than 2.5 gallons (9.5l) of water per minute.
The Trump administration wants this limit to apply to each nozzle, rather than the overall fixture."

Surely if they had that amount of water per nozzle it would be like being hit with a water canon and that would do wonders for his oh so perfect hair. grin

Toscalily 😂

Callistemon Thu 13-Aug-20 14:44:22

It might swoosh him down the plughole toscalily

Does anyone else remember Trump protesting about energy saving regulations which had made it impossible for him to get hold of his preferred brand of hairspray?

It must be so comforting to his supporters to know that the POTUS has got his priorities right.

It's worth considering then?

I’ve always assumed he just chucked his hair in the washing machine when it needed a clean.

The most memorable of his many gaffes, to me, is his suggestion that the Spanish Flu was a factor in the ending of WWII ! Video here www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/trump-spanish-flu-world-war-2-white-house-press-briefing-video-a9664171.html

Dear oh dear

His hair has to be “perfect” does it?! I hope he said that tongue in cheek, but you never know with him. I wonder what he would look like with a good old-fashioned short back and sides? He’s need a bit more of the “I’ve been tango’d” orange make-up then though!

toscalily Fri 14-Aug-20 15:41:31

SueDonim, that made me splutter into my coffee. I never considered that but would need to be finished off in the dryer so its all soft & fluffy grin

SueDonim Fri 14-Aug-20 20:40:18

I guess it must be real hair, Toscalily because acrylic might shrivel up in the tumble drier. grin

Chewbacca Fri 14-Aug-20 20:55:39

What? It's got to be real hair! No one would buy a wig like that would they? If they were going to buy a wig they'd at least get one that covered the whole of their head!

Bellanonna Fri 14-Aug-20 21:53:56

Oh Chewy, that made me laugh out loud!

Callistemon Fri 14-Aug-20 21:56:20

Chewbacca grin

It doesn't come off in a gale either. But he needs to be careful in case it acts like a wind sail

Chewbacca Fri 14-Aug-20 22:05:45

Remind you of anyone?
