Is that Jared “Kush” Kushner with a comb-over? Short answer: Yes.
The husband of Ivanka Trump, who currently serves as a senior advisor in the White House, is styling his hair like his father-in-law, President Donald Trump. Mike Sington, an executive at Universal Studios, took to Twitter to post several photos showing various angles of Kushner’s new hairdo, which looks to be inspired by Trump’s infamous, meme-worthy mane.

Kusher was seen with the new hairstyle on Friday morning in Washington D.C., where he and his kids were giving treats to Secret Service agents outside their Kalorama home, according to Daily Mail.

Over the years, Trump’s ‘do has been widely mocked, with some suggesting he wears a toupee. However, during a campaign stop in South Carolina in 2015, he made it clear that his wispy locks are the real deal by inviting a member of the audience to give them a tug.
“You’re going to have to do an inspection,” Trump told a woman he randomly selected to do the toup-test. “This is getting crazy. Just real quick. We don’t want to mess it up too much because I do use hairspray.” Insiders say that Trump has visited L’Appartement, a discreet boutique salon located across the street from Trump Tower on 57th Street, to keep his hair in check.
At a rally in Iowa in 2015, Trump also said that he would lose the comb-over if he was elected POTUS, “I would probably comb my hair back. Why? Because this thing is too hard to comb. I wouldn’t have time because if I were in the White House, I’d be working my ass off.”
Yet, here we are. Let’s hope Kushner doesn’t go for the tanning bed next.
