The media must be running out of legitimate darts to throw at President Donald Trump.
Clearly unable to cope with the notion that Trump is now the acting President of the United States, Aaron Blake, a senior political reporter with the Washington Post's blog "The Fix," actually penned a 611-word article accusing Trump of purposefully hiding his use of a hair-loss drug. The diatribe then actually made it into the Washington Post. The paper even tweeted it out.

I’m not sure why anyone would take the time to read such a ridiculously irrelevant piece of “journalism,” let alone write it. Unless you’re me, of course, and your purpose is to mock this absolute dumpster fire.
The "article," entitled, "President Trump Appears To Have Purposefully Hidden His Use of a Hair-Loss Drug," starts off with a list of medications Trump allegedly takes, based off a New York Times report. (Because, you know, it really matters to the vast majority of Americans struggling to pay their insanely high health insurance premiums that Donald Trump takes a baby aspirin with his morning bagel.)
Apparently, Trump's personal physician told the Times that Trump also takes a prostate drug meant to combat hair loss, a random personal tidbit that affects exactly nothing when it comes to being the President of the United States.

Blake then alleges:
The Times notes that Trump's use of the hair-loss drug "has not been publicly known." But that seems to be a charitable characterization; a less-charitable one would be that his use of these drugs was deliberately hidden.
The WaPo ‘political reporter’ then notes Trump had every chance to disclose this drug use in a September interview with television talk show host Dr. Oz., but that he chose not to. Clearly, Blake insinuates, this means he didn’t want the public to know his scalp was looking a bit threadbare.
Since his inauguration less than two weeks ago, Trump has been blasted for being everything from a Muslim-hating racist to a homophobe – both of which have been proven thus far to be nonsense, based on the actual facts. But now, apparently, he’s also a thin-haired Rogaine-commercial-in-waiting with a habit of lying about his pharmaceuticals, an intolerable character flaw that should shake freedom-loving Americans to their very core.
Honestly, you couldn’t make this stuff up if you tried.
