Sometimes you just have to change the narrative in order to take the focus off yourself. If anyone knows that, it’s Donald Trump.
Per Town & Country, Trump recently blasted Hillary Clinton’s new hairstyle, which is a remarkable move coming from a dude with hands down the worst hair in the history of hair.
On Wednesday, however, Trump turned the focus to another candidate’s hair. During an interview with conservative radio host Marc Levin, Trump pointed out that Hillary Clinton had recently gotten a new hairstyle, according to CNN. Levin joked that it was a wig.
“I tell you what, it really was shocking to see it because you’re right, it must be, it was massive,” Trump said. “Her hair became massive.”
“I don’t care,” he added after Levin suggested his comments might spark controversy. “I’m a person that tells the truth. You know it was interesting to see but I’ve never seen Hillary with that hairdo so I think that’s an OK thing to say, but it was very different.”
Now, Trump has come under fire for making comments about women’s appearances and I am by no means condoning sexism in any way, shape, or form. After all, Post Grad Problems is a “safe space,” so to speak.
But what I will condone is getting ahead of your own personal flaws. I have Mitt Romney-esque hair so flow has never been an issue for me, but my shortcomings have come elsewhere so I’m very familiar with this tactic. I’ve owned being skinny-fat for years now and the internet has noticed.

Had I not gotten ahead of that comment by repping my marshmallow body, people would awkwardly tip-toe around that call out. But me? I own it boldly which allows me to throw stones at glass houses all I want.
“Oh, I have a double-chin? No, Donald Trump, you have a double chin.” Boom. Will for President. .
