White House Official: Donald Trump's Orange Complexion a Result of Good Genes

Despite earlier claims about Trump allegedly using a tanning bed, three sources who spent time in the White House reportedly said that no such device exists anywhere in the building.

Instead, a senior White House official told the New York Times that it's all down to "Trump's good genes" and a little powder that the President applies prior to TV appearances. She claimed a White House usher was sacked over her mishandling of the transportation of his tanning bed to the White House.

It's February, and yet President Donald Trump's skin maintains the same tanned, orange glow as it does year-round.

The phrase "good genes" echoes Trump himself, who brags a lot about his own and his family's genes. And the only make-up Trump uses is a translucent powder which he applies himself before television appearance.

Back in 2016, a makeup artist for the Republican National Convention suggested that the look was more tanning bed or spray glow than the luck of the genetic lottery.

PS4 worldwide shipments top 94.2 million
Even if this past holiday season saw shipments dip by almost 1 million, the past quarter is still nothing to scoff at whatsoever. This allows games for previous generation consoles to run on the new one, thinking it's still running with familiar hardware.

A tanning bed also would not explain why Trump's face is a completely different color from the paler skin on his hands.

The US president's former White House aide Omarosa Manigault claimed in her book that he once fired a staff member for failing to set up a tanning bed in the White House.

In the piece, the Times speaks to experts and insiders attempting to determine whether he uses tanning creams or tanning beds, something they are unable to do conclusively. So maybe it's just good genes, after all.
