Campaigners reveal reason why Farage shaved off his moustache
The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that it believes that the real reason Nigel Farage shaved off the moustache he grew in the summer of 2016 was to improve his chances of being offered a role by President Elect Donald Trump
Trump’s interesting relationship with facial hair has taken an unfortunate turn this week with the Washington Post reporting that he has passed over veteran Republican John Bolton for a Secretary of State position on the grounds he doesn’t like his walrus moustache.
The Washington Post report quotes Trump advisors to the effect that the President-elect doesn’t like either moustaches or beards.
BLF organiser Keith Flett said, shaving off the moustache certainly got Farage a high profile meeting with Trump but so far it doesn’t seem to have led to a job offer. Farage remains probably the ultimate ‘nearly man’.
Washington Post report on Donald Trump
“Several of Trump’s associates said they thought that John R. Bolton’s brush-like mustache was one of the factors that handicapped the bombastic former United Nations ambassador in the sweepstakes for secretary of state.
“Donald was not going to like that mustache,” said one associate, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to speak frankly. “I can’t think of anyone that’s really close to Donald that has a beard that he likes.”
