Donald Trump paid a visit to Texas today, where many polls show him tied or narrowly losing to Joe Biden, and he must have really wanted to impress Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, because the way he got his face all painted up he might just as well have put on earrings and lipstick to complete the effect.
But there was one major problem with how Trump’s makeup was applied, and it only drew further attention to the fact that a 74-year-old man is wearing foundation and getting fake tans the way most people change their socks.
The White House posted this video of Trump as he departed for the Lone Star state:
Wow! Talk about a very bad makeup job. Someone needs to be fired.
Here’s a couple of still photos from video shot by CNN:
Yeah, nothing the least bit wrong with that already orange face, is there? Except for the fact that the orange ends and starkly turns to white. The contrast is almost enough to make you divert your eyes when the sunlight hits it.
All of this sent social media into waves of laughter and mockery, all of which is well-deserved, especially when a grown man wears makeup and then wears it badly!

Anybody watching Trump right now answering questions outside the White House? Have you ever seen a man, other than an actor on set, wearing as much makeup? 🙁

Just once I’d like a reporter to ask him who does his makeup

For someone who spends all day looking at his reflection…how the HELL does he thinks this is a good look?

He just covers a paper plate with it and then mashes his face into it.

I now deem him, “President King Clown Cake” hmmm, seems like there is a ‘KKK’ in that somewhere too…

Donnie, a word of advice: You’re making all of this too damn easy! We hardly have to lift a finger to mock you these days.
