Every once in a while, modern American presidents may have worn makeup if they were appearing on television for an interview. Donald Trump was a different story entirely. The 45th president rarely appeared in public without being covered in makeup and orange tinted self tanner.
Recently a former Trump aide revealed some background on Trump’s makeup routine. This tickled Jimmy Kimmel to no end and he brutally mocked the former president during his Thursday show.
Alyssa Farah noted in a recent podcast interview that Trump wouldn’t wear a mask because he didn’t think he looked good in one. She also said that she regretted not being more forcible in advocating for him to wear one.
When it came to the former president’s makeup routine, Farah explained, “You don’t touch the Donald Trump face.”
Discussing the interview, Kimmel began, “Of course he does his own makeup. Look at this makeup. If a professional did this, they would be fired ― out of a cannon.”
The late night host continued, “I would pay a lot of money to watch Donald Trump do a makeup tutorial on YouTube. He can make it his next pay-per-view event.”
