The internet recoils in disgust after report suggests Trump won because he’s handsome
While more than half of America thinks President Donald Trump should resign, one columnist cited a recent study to claim that Trump’s success hinges on his physique.
The columnist cited a study led by a professor of social psychology at the University of Helsinki, which concluded that good looks matter to conservative voters more than liberal ones in the U.S., Europe and other countries. The study is consistent with others, which have said that attractive people earn more money and are able to achieve greater success in life than those with average looks.
Those on Twitter, however, seemed to take real issue with the fact that anyone could find Trump attractive.
@BettyBowers Helsinki should be embarrassed. Trump is attractive sort of like blob fish. Resemblance is striking.

Study could also have concluded “Wealth makes anyone physically attractive, even Trump.” https://t.co/60Bvud3ULD

@Oregonian Attractive? Trump? What? If attractiveness decided the presidency, Oscar Isaac would be President.

@talkwordy Sure. I get it. Trump is physically attractive. Up is down. Hot is blue. Cats are ice cream.

Actually no, even if you find stupidity attractive you can’t find this ‘man’ attractive. Was this study conducted by Trump University?

@Oregonian You mean “relatively speaking” right? To a toothless hillbilly, Trump may be considered attractive.
