When Donald Trump was asked about EPA water regulations at a rally in South Carolina, he talked about the way they personally affect his life: by harming his ability to wash his signature hairdo.
At an event in Aiken, South Carolina Saturday afternoon, Trump was asked what he thought of regulations by the Environmental Protection Agency on waterways in the United States.
“I’ll give you one regulation,” Trump said, launching into an example of how strict environmental rules can hurt everyday Americans with great hair. “So I build, and I build a lot of stuff. And I go into areas where they have tremendous water… And you have sinks where the water doesn’t come out…. You have showers where I can’t wash my hair properly, it’s a disaster!” he said, to laughter from the crowd.
“It’s true,” Trump continued. “They [the showerheads] have restrictors put in. The problem is you stay under the shower for five times as long.”
