Donald Trump has long been obsessed with the physical appearance of others. And despite his overly spray-tanned skin and cotton candy hair, the former President is often quite negative in his assessments.In his new book, William Barr discussed how Trump would comment on his appearance. And the 45th President was entirely focused on his Attorney General’s jowls.
In his new book, Barr notes that Trump “watched Fox News religiously and would sometimes call to make sure I saw a particular segment.” The former Attorney General also revealed, “The President was always prompt in giving me immediate visual feedback when I appeared on TV.”
Barr writes that he made a self-deprecating comment about his jowls to Trump, and the then President responded, “No, Bill. You’re fine, you’re fine. Yeah, you’re big. But you carry it well. Whatever you do, don’t lose too much weight. Because then your face is going to sag. You’re lucky because your face, I mean your cheeks—they’re filled out. They look smooth and young. But I guarantee you, if you lose a lot of weight, you’ll look old and saggy.”
