On the afternoon of Thursday, November 19, the Trump legal team hosted a press conference about their efforts to overturn the election results. It’s not a strong argument, consider the 5.5 million more votes Biden received than incumbent Donald Trump. Still, the president wants the wants them, so the arguments must be made, and no one is working harder to bring them to national attention than Rudy Giuliani and his terribly applied hair dye, which was the full-on star of today’s democracy-damaging performance by the Trump team, and quite frankly, stole the show.
At some point, Giuliani, who may have been sweating under the weight of various falsehoods about voting (a convoluted plot about Venezuela hacking into voting machines and changing votes “after everyone went to sleep” is a major part of the Giuliani accusations), had a dark brown liquid dripping down the side of his face. And yes, you guessed it, it’s most likely hair dye.
The photos are yes, cringeworthy, and honestly, to focus on this in the face of a major political party brazenly discrediting one of the most secure and smoothly-run elections in years, and seeing how much they can get away with in the interim, probably seems like small potatoes. But for the sake of all men who dye their hair we just have to say to Rudy Giuliani: You’re ruining hair dye for everyone. If you’re going to dye your hair while you try to subvert democracy, at least do it well.
