President Donald Trump’s coiffure could be from eating McDonald’s french fries.
The president Wednesday jokingly credited the fries for his nearly full head of hair, tweeting: “No wonder I didn’t lose my hair!” in response to a 2018 tweet from former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer with a link to an article that said a chemical in McDonald’s French fries might be a cure for baldness.
“It doesn’t work,” Fleischer said.
The report cited a study from Japan where researchers said mice who were tested with the chemical regrew hair.
The New York Times earlier this week, citing Trump’s tax returns, said the president claimed $70,000 in hair care expenses “for television” as a deduction on his income taxes.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., following the report blasted Trump in a tweet.
“Last year, Republicans blasted a firehose of hatred + vitriol my way because I treated myself to a $250 cut & lowlights on my birthday,” wrote Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter in reference to the outrage surrounding her hair salon bill for a cut ($80) lowlights ($180) along with a $52 tip.
“Where’s the criticism of their idol spending $70K on hairstyling? Oh, it’s nowhere because they’re spineless, misogynistic hypocrites? Got it.”
