Given Donald Trump's background in beauty pageants (owning them, not being in them), it makes sense to learn that America's new President-elect is considering physical appearance when picking his Cabinet members. It also makes sense, then, that John Bolton was supposedly being considered for a position, but ultimately rejected because of his famous mustache.

John Bolton, who was widely speculated to become Donald Trump's secretary of state, is well-known for sporting a brushy, white mustache. "Donald was not going to like that mustache. I can’t think of anyone that’s really close to Donald that has a beard that he likes," an anonymous source told the Washington Post.

According to another of their anonymous sources, “That’s the language he speaks. He’s very aesthetic. You can come with somebody who is very much qualified for the job, but if they don’t look the part, they’re not going anywhere.”

Given Bolton's hawkish nature, Americans are very lucky for that muchache. Donald Trump's aesthetics are still highly questionable, though. No facial hair, yes to gilding anything that stands still too long. Got it.
