The president, who is 6-foot-4 and about 240 pounds, also doesn’t follow any special diet, the piece said. He famously loves fried chicken, soda, and McDonald’s. While he’ll occasionally tuck into a burger from Burger King, his true love is McDonald’s fish sandwich. And he also has a soft spot for the fast-food restaurant’s French fries.
Trump, 74, on Wednesday credited those fries for his magnificent head of hair.
The claim came after Ari Fleischer, a former press secretary for President George W. Bush, posted a story on Twitter about a 2018 study that “reveals a chemical found in McDonald’s French fries may be the cure for baldness.”
“Scientists from Japan said the chemical is added to the fries in order to keep the cooking oil from frothing up. When they tested that chemical on mice, scientists said, the mice regrew hair. Scientists said this is the first time they have mass produced what they are calling ‘hair follicle germs’ with this method,” the story said.
Fleischer, who is (how to say this politely) “hair-challenged,” offered his take on the study: “It doesn’t work.”
That prompted Trump to weigh in on the matter.
“No wonder I didn’t lose my hair!”
