A lot happened during Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau‘s official visit to the United States.

The handshake that launched a thousand memes, for one. Ivanka Trump staring thirstily at his boyish good looks (same, girl, same). Press Secretary Sean Spicer calling him “Joe” Trudeau, because at this point he just has to be taking the piss, right? Right? Plus, y’know, a commitment to co-operate on major global challenges, etc.

But in all of that noise, we *almost* missed what may be incontrovertible proof that President Donald Trump‘s iconic shade of putrid orange is the result of makeup and *not* a tanning bed.

A rogue gust of wind whipped back his perfectly coiffured hair to reveal – *gasp* – makeup lines? On his forehead?

Like Dorothy ripping back the curtain at the end of ‘The Wizard of Oz‘ to find, not a great and powerful wizard, but a man talking into a megaphone-like contraption, the gust of wind has broken the facade. THAT’S NOT HIS NATURAL SKIN COLOUR. WE BLOODY KNEW IT.


This, of course, has literally nothing to do with his presidency. But it’s extremely funny all the same.
