$70,000 THOUSAND AMERICAN DOLLARS!
We all knew that when Donald Trump’s tax returns were eventually uncovered we’d find a whole bunch of unscrupulous information that is morally reprehensible. That is to be expected from someone who has shown time and time again to be without a moral compass or scruples.
That being said, something that caught my eye was the $70,000 he wrote off in hairstyling costs. Jokes about The President’s hair are cliche and hack but there’s no reason for him to drop $70K on something that should be done for no more than $200 a year.
Believe it or not I used to have hair and once every 2 months or so I’d go visit the local barber, Bruno. Bruno was an old Italian guy who like to rub his crotch into my arm and shoulder while he cut my hair. He’d charge me $12 and I’d tip $3 and it would be a nice $15 exchange.
For $70K Bruno could have cut my hair over 4,600 times. For $70K Bruno could have cut my hair daily for almost 13 YEARS! I know a stylist costs more than an old man who gets his kicks rubbing it against his customers, but surely their must be some middle ground between the two extremes. Also, how much of the taxpayers money do you think he’s used to keep himself looking pretty while in office.
I’m not saying I’d use that against Trump if I were Biden, but I would keep that information handy in case Trump tries to play the “everyday American” card. I’d bet there’s a lot more Americans going to Bruno’s than going to stylists.
