It appears that he did not get the job because the Donald does not like facial, and the American Mustache Institute is pissed off:
The American Mustache Institute is bristling at President-elect Donald Trump’s reported prejudice against facial hair.I honestly cannot tell the difference between reality and parody any more, but I think that this is real, only it sounds like a parody.
Addressing allegations that former United Nations ambassador John Bolton was passed over for secretary of state because of his mustache, the AMI staff banded together to defend one of their own and denounce the rumored act of discrimination. After referencing Trump’s long history of superficial statements — from his hosting of “The Apprentice” to his misogynistic comments about former pageant queen Alicia Machado — the AMI let things get hairy.
“The paradox, of course, is that Mr. Trump’s orange face and spaghetti squash mane would, theoretically through his own Clark Gable paradigm — who ironically had a mustache — would make Mr. Trump himself unfit to serve in a position of leadership,” the AMI staff wrote. “But beyond the esthetic and ongoing pattern of his embrace of an alt-right-like discrimination, the Mustached American community is deeply troubled by a new administration erecting yet another obstacle towards a level playing field for people of Mustached American heritage.”
The AMI added that “our quarrel is not political as we are a non-partisan institution of learning, thought and facial hair militancy.”
We live in Bizarro world.
