A make-over fit for a President or a President fit for a make-over?.

There have been many criticisms of the new 45th President of the United States, Donald Trump. With marches and demonstrations decrying  many of his policies on topics from immigration to women’s rights; it has certainly not been an easy first week in office.

With his infamy worldwide showing nothing but an upward trajectory, he is one of the most recognisable figures in the world today. From the slightly tangoed colouration of his complexion, wispy hair that appears to defy gravity and frequently ill-fitting Brioni suits, he is far from the image of a typical statesman.


In response to this, GQ Magazine have come up with a possible solution to the problem – at least in regards to his appearance. Using the magic of digital editing they have released a short video transforming the notorious Trump from salesman to stately with a very special make-over just for him. With over 1.5 million views already the clip shows an alternative version of what Trump could be if he only would do away with the comb-over and put down the bronzer. Identifying and correcting such fashion faux-pas as his overbearing tie choices, swamping suits and overall choice in hairstyles the resulting figure is almost unrecognisable in the best way possible.

However as GQ points out, this is the easiest change to make, if he can put aside his ego and take on the recommendations given to him from GQ all that is left for him to change is his misogyny, racism, homophobia, class warfare and Islamophobia to name but a few.

After all a turnip in a tuxedo is still a turnip.
