A new Washington Post story exposing the inner workings of being employed by the Trump family is surely something the president would preferred to be covered up ― perhaps with a couple of layers of his favorite concealer.
The report, written by Joshua Partlow and David A. Farenthold, is based on conversations the paper had with 48 people who had “worked illegally for The Trump Organization.” Amid the more jarring revelations, there’s a bit about his ... particularities.
Like, for example, wanting an exact number of Tic Tacs in his room at all times and just the right amount of Bronx Colors face makeup ― his concealer of choice.
“The same rule applied to the Bronx Colors-brand face makeup from Switzerland that Trump slathered on — two full containers, one half full — even if it meant the housekeepers had to regularly bring new shirts from the pro shop because of the rust-colored stains on the collars,” the article reads. “A special washing machine in the laundry room was reserved for his wife Melania Trump’s clothing.”
The discovery is but a rust-colored drop in the bucket in a larger story about Sandra Diaz and Victorina Morales, who exposed The Trump Organization’s practice of hiring undocumented immigrants. In doing so, they stood up for their rights and called attention to the hypocrisy of the president, who often disparages undocumented immigrants and whose policy has separated thousands of children from families at the southern border.
But it didn’t take too long for the Switzerland-based brand, which identified the shade as “Orange BHC06,” to capitalize on the attention.
“Get Donald Trump’s favorite Bronx Colors product and color until 12.7.2019 for free with every order,” the brand’s website now reads, alongside a screen grab of the article. And folks, it’s very, very orange.
We’re not sure about the marketing tactics here, but the story lines up pretty well with a 2013 New York Times report that Morales was once reprimanded for not being able to remove an “orange stain” from Trump’s collar.
