See Donald Trump’s golden mop and orange skin? They need no introduction. They have become one of his signature trademarks. And while he claims his look is natural, both are totally fake. So what would he look like without either?
An artist skilled in digital Photoshopping has produced a photo of Trump without either his hair or tan. In other words, what he very likely really looks like at the age of 71.
“I wanted to see what would happen if I took the natural skin color from around his eyes and applied it to the rest of his face,” writes Jordan Rivers, of “Jordan Rivers Creative.”
Rivers, who bills himself as an actor, writer, director and photographer is highly skilled in Photoshop, a software program that is widely used to digitally alter photos. Typically, fashion magazines use it to enhance the look of models, or celebrities. Sometimes he effects are comical.
But nothing beats Rivers’ Trump creation without his fake hair, fake tan.
In addition to giving Trump more natural coloration, he also stripped away his dyed comb-over hair.
“So I guess this is what Donald would look like if he was poor,” Rivers writes, adding an “lol.”
He also gives a shoutout to his photography teacher for giving him his Photoshop skills. “I promise to use them properly one day,” he jokes.
But his photo rendition is no joke. See Trump exposed in a way that even Special Counsel Robert Mueller has yet to do.
Trump has been under investigation since before the 2016 election for his alleged collusion with Russia to influence the election in his favor. He also faces criminal
investigations for alleged money laundering and other illegal business practices.
His miraculous success as a businessman turned out to be just as fake. Trump repeated business failures were repeated covered up by his father’s vast wealth. Trump was bailed out repeatedly to the tune of more than $400 million over his career, according to The New York Times.
But Trump’s hair is a whole other story, although it has the same ending… fake, fake, fake.
“It’s my hair I swear,” he said repeatedly on the campaign trail. He even had the Tonight Show’s Jimmy Fallon give it a tug on national television.
Trump’s long-time doctor, Harold Bornstein, revealed that the president has been taking Propecia, a hair restoration drug, for years. One of the side effects, however, is reduced libido, according to experts.
William Yates, a hair transplant surgeon, told Business Insider that Trump shows clear signs of having surgery. (See the video below)
Yates said Trump appears to have had a “surgical flap.” That’s when hair is rotated over the side of the head to the front to give the appearance of a think hairline.
Behind the flap, he’s had more hair placed through grafts, the surgeon said.
Author Michael Wolfe quotes non-other than Ivanka Trump to explain her father’s hair in his book, “Fire and Fury: Inside Trump’s White House.”
She often described the mechanics behind it to friends: an absolutely clean pate — a contained island after scalp-reduction surgery — surrounded by a furry circle of hair around the sides and front, from which all ends are drawn up to meet in the center and then swept back and secured by a stiffening spray. The color, she would point out to comical effect, was from a product called Just for Men — the longer it was left on, the darker it got. Impatience resulted in Trump’s orange-blond hair color.
Meanwhile, “the president’s vibrant hue is so consistently present and meticulously maintained that it was a culturally embedded representation of him long before he entered politics,” according to The New York Times.
A makeup artist who handled Trump’s makeup at the Republican National Convention in 2016 and former aide Omarosa Manigault Newman both say Trump is addicted to tanning beds.
“I know exactly what he does to himself — the tanning bed, the spray tan, he wears the goggles and you can see the hyperpigmentation around his eyes,” said the makeup artist, Jason Kelly.
So let’s just cut right to the chase and see Donald in his natural state, just like the rest of us. Warning! You won’t be able to unsee it.
