Proof That Donald Trump Can Relate To The Common Man (Voter)

The following article excerpt via Wonkette. Although they're referencing a HuffPo story.

Melania Trump, model, businesswoman and wife of Donald Trump, doesn't cut corners when it comes to raising her son, Barron. When it comes to clothes, he dresses in suits like his dad. When it comes to skincare, he uses mom's caviar-enhanced skincare line.

You read that correctly. The 7-year-old Barron uses Melania's Caviar Complex C6 moisturizer every night after his bath.

"It smells very, very fresh", Melania, who launched the skincare line exclusively in Lord & Taylor this week, told ABC News. "I put it on him from head to toe. He likes it!".

On HuffPo the article is titled "Donald Trump's 7-Year-Old Son, Barron, Uses Caviar Moisturizer Every Night", while on Wonkette the title is "Donald Trump And His Wife Are Awful And Their Son Tastes Like Caviar". Wonkette adds commentary like "are you fucking kidding us?". And they poke fun at the name "Barron", saying it's a name that indicates he's the "spawn of rich assholes".

Hilarious, huh? Perhaps a little harsh, as this product is from Melania Trump's skin care line, so perhaps she gets it free. Or at a reduced cost. Still, the stuff costs $150 an ounce. A mom (writing for Daily News) says she tried it out... and that it cost 100 bucks to do her 18-month-old "head to toe". So that's probably at least $150 worth of the product that Melania uses on Barron... every day.

That's $54,750 a year to moisturize the skin of a child (she said she uses it EVERY night). Which means that the yearly cost of Barron's skincare regimine is roughly equal to the yearly household income of the typical American family, which is $53,657 (according to a 9/16/2015 CNN Money article).

Now, rich people, in general, likely spend more on everything than the average person. And many politicians are wealthy, so you'd probably be able to find examples of Democrats spending exorbitant amounts on their children. And you could say they also can't relate to the average voter. Yet, we're talking about 54k for skincare for a 10-year-old!

  1. Foolish no doubt. A waste of the green.

    But really. This rises to newsworthy, or even a good human interest story? Methinks not.

  2. I must admit Melania continues to be very beautiful.

    Barron? A spitting image of his dad almost. Perhaps the next generation Trumplestiltskin mentality and personality?

  3. Dervish, I personally don't care how much money anyone spends on anything. To each his own, as long as it's not tax dollars!
    Hillary wore an Armani jacket worth thousands. She can't identify with the middle-class nor can Trump. They both need to stop saying they understand. They are in the way upper 1%.
    As far as the name Barron, I think it's an unique name. Never thought of it as the name of the spawn rich a*****s.

    1. It speaks to his and his wife's character, IMO. Instead of pissing away so much money on something idiotic like caviar skin cream for a child, maybe the Trumps could give a little more to charity. I think it's (at least somewhat) offensive given the fact that Donald apparently lies about his charitable giving.

      As for Hillary's "Armani jacket worth thousands"... she is an adult. And we are talking about an article of clothing. One I presume she's worn multiple times.

Unfortunately comment moderation is necessary in order to screen out insanity from an idiot calling himself "Luke" of the "Words And Music" (a liar who has made bogus accusations that many others are stealing his posts) as well as homophobic hate from TOM of the blog "Stay A While" (actually the same person).
