hair-raising news
January 22, 2019

President Trump's governing style is almost as tumultuous as his easily windswept hairstyle. Perhaps that's because he's relying on a budget product to keep his coif in check.

In his forthcoming book Team of Vipers, former White House communications aide Cliff Sims describes "how absolutely out of control the White House staff ... was at times," per an advance copy obtained by The Washington Post. But Sims did attempt to keep at least one thing in check, as the Post described from the book below.

As White House director of message strategy, Sims regularly met Trump at the private elevator of the residence and accompanied him to video tapings — carrying a can of Tresemmé Tres Two hair spray, extra hold, for the boss.

Judging from the numerous times Trump's hair has been blown off course, it's no wonder Sims was eventually reassigned to the State Department after more than a year in the White House. Hopefully by now, Trump has upgraded from a spray you can get for $2.74 at Walmart. Kathryn Krawczyk
