Trump’s hairspray

Last week El Trumpo was in West Virginia making a speech before a crowd of coal miners and wearing a coal-miner’s hard-hat while complaining that the damned enviros and their global warming crapola was costing coal miners jobs based on the assertion that the burning of coal is causing the polar ice caps to melt.

Nonsense, he told the miners. It was the same kind of BS the enviros claimed about the chemicals in products like hair spray and deodorant causing depletion of the ozone layer. Total BS. How could the chemicals in aerosol cans possibly affect the ozone layer in the stratosphere? He went into a spiel about his own personal experience about how his favorite hairspray didn’t work like it used to because the government banned the use of the chemical that made it work. Here’s the quote, courtesy of Esquire magazine:TurmpHair2

That is great. My hair looks OK. I got a little spray. Give me a little spray. You know you’re not allowed to use hair spray anymore because it affects the ozone. You know that, right? I said, ‘You mean to tell me’ — because you know, hair spray’s not like it used to be. It used to be real good. When I put on that helmet — and by the way, look [pats own hair] it really is mine. Lookit. My hair. Give me a mirror. Today ya put the hairspray on and it’s good for twelve minutes, right? They say you can’t — I said, ‘Wait a minute, so if I take hairspray and I spray it in my apartment which is all sealed, you’re telling me that affects the ozone layer?’ Yes? I say no way folks. No way.

So this left me scratching my head and wondering just how many coal miners use hairspray. But it’s not just coal miners. How many American males use hairspray? If your a male, do you use hairspray? If you’re a female, sure, but males? I don’t know any. Or at least I don’t think I know any. I belong to a gym and regularly shower and dress with dozens of guys of various ages, shapes, colors, religions, nationalities, and I’ve never seen a single one of them use hairspray. Hair gels, yes. Some do. I remember a quote by President Lyndon Johnson, who had a nickname for Robert McNamara, the Secretary of Defense, calling him “my pomade man” for the grease he used to slick his hair back. But hairspray? I’d wager ten bucks that not a single coal miner in that crowd ever used hairspray. Makes me wonder just what kind of a “guy” Trump truly is.
