Donald Trump reportedly hates being embarrassed, so we’re sure the editors at the Times were cackling to themselves last night when they published an interview with the Donald’s doctor that proves — once and for all — that our president takes hair-growth pills. Thus, they helped to solve one of the great mysteries of our time (namely, what the hell is happening on the top of his head?).
This doctor, Harold N. Bornstein, is the same doctor who wrote that insanely glowing health report of Donald back in December 2015, in which he said, “If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.”
According to Bornstein, in addition to taking the hair-growth pill, finasteride (commonly marketed as Propecia), Trump also takes a long-acting tetracycline to control for the skin condition rosacea, which causes redness that can resemble acne.
Bornstein, who also takes Propecia, says he and the Donald are happy with the drug because it gets the job done. “He has all his hair,” he told the Times. “I have all my hair.” [NYT]
