|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!
