Makeup Application Gone Awry

The problem with being an abusive employer with no loyalty to anyone is that your underlings don't warn you when you do something stupid. Keeping that in mind, behold the 'Alpha Male' in the White House:

This guy is supposed to be a billionaire, why does he always look like a wreck? Even funnier than that unflattering picture is a follow-up, describing Trump as 'dancing with the sunset and strong winds when he walked to the Oval Office from the Marine One on the South Lawn'. This is an example of laying it on too thick, it actually overshoots the DPK-style propaganda and lands firmly into parody territory. I can't imagine that this thread isn't a subtle undermining of an emperor who has no clothes. At any rate, it left a mark on the vain, vapid, venal one's psyche.

He is dancing with the faeries and the strong winds are being blown up his toin. Lost in the concealer conflict (the crime actually being less than the cover-up) is the nature of whatever is going on with his hair, which seems to involve bobby pins. He thinks this might well be a photoshop. He thinks that because he does his own hair and makeup, and thinks he does a good job, without seeing it from all the angles and therefore never coming to the conclusion that his job is incompetent.

This is an observation that I think holds up for all the things he does. He can't see himself as others see him. When he does it is jarring, and the people who are pointing out his foibles are the real enemy.

Yeah, he is completely solipsistic, and I hope that it is his downfall.

It's all the fault of those energy-saving lightbulbs, especially outdoors.
