Report: Obama Flies Special Barber To WH Every Two Weeks
FoxNews.com ^ | May 30,2012

Posted on 05/31/2012 10:10:10 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Reports have surfaced that President Barack Obama is very loyal to his barber. The President is a man of the common people, the report tells its listeners. He hangs out with regular folks, like his barber for example. The President has been using the same Chicago based barber, who goes by the name Zariff, for the past 17 years.

According to German Public Radio, the President flies Zariff from Chicago to DC for a trim every two weeks.

The president allegedly personally funds these trips.

President Obama obviously also does not care much about the massive carbon footprint his haircuts are leaving on our planet which, we are told, is tipping precariously.

I don't approve of taxpayer expense.

But I've only had 3 people cut my hair in 35 years.

He should shave his head in the shower every morning. It’s a good way to save money and eliminate the gray hair problem.

Why the hell does he need a special barber to shave his ‘fro? He has the most basic hairstyle I have seen.

A #1 setting on a pair of standard clippers will do the job without mistake

What a dramatic wuss that guy is. Other than the back of his neck, he could easily do his own hair with some clippers. My barber charges $8 for a haircut, and I tip him $2 when I get my 1 1/2 butch every three months. I could get a lifetime of haircuts for the cost of one of pansy-arsed Zero’s cuts.

Too bad Eliott Spitzer and Anthony Weiner couldn’t suggest some other folks for O to fly into the White House. Also Bubbalicious Bill Clinton could also impart with some wisdom. Forget Monica —if Sista Michelle caught Monica in the oval office Sistah would wipe the walls, floors and ceiling with her fat butt.

Dude flies someone in for what he could practically do himself?

That ain’t no hairstyle that’s some easy electric shear work and can’t take more than 5 minutes.

Maybe the stylist is coloring Barry’s hair gray to give him a distinguished look?

Milton Pitts (4 July 1912 – 25 December 1994) was the White House barber for Republican U.S. Presidents Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, and George H.W. Bush.

While Pitts was a staunch Republican, he always maintained that “my scissors are neither Republican nor Democrat,” and he counted Democratic Senator George McGovern among his clients.[1][2] Democratic President Jimmy Carter did not use Pitts, though, and instead brought in two hairstylists, Yves and Nancy Graux. President Reagan’s Chief of Staff James Baker dismissed them in July 1982 and Pitts again became the sole White House barber.[3]

During his years in the White House, Pitts won acclaim as “Washington’s most famous barber.” He appeared on Late Night with David Letterman on May 24, 1982.[4] His twentieth anniversary celebration in 1985 was attended by numerous dignitaries including President Reagan, Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger, Secretary of State George Shultz and Attorney General Edwin Meese.[5][6]

Pitts regularly gave his clients advice, both fashion and political, and was well-known for speaking frankly: he once “suggested that Richard Nixon do something about his nose and told Gerald Ford his ties were too loud.”[7] When President Bill Clinton received a $200 haircut from the Beverly Hills stylist Christophe, Pitts criticized Clinton and said the price amounted to “showmanship” on the part of the barber.[8] In the years after he left the White House, Pitts typically charged $25 for a haircut at his shop in the Sheraton-Carlton Hotel.[1][9]

Maybe we mistook Reggie Love as Obammy’s squeeze. Perhaps it’s the barber instead. Probably shaves his bikini line as a prelude to sex.

OK, so it costs $300 to fly coach from Chicago to DC.

The barber will need a taxi, meals and perhaps a night stay at a hotel, so add another $300 or $400.

Obama’s hair cuts cost about $600.

Flying from Chicago to Washington DC produces 50,000 pounds of carbon emissions.

Obama also flies out his personal trainer from Chicago.

Must be nice to be king.

I’ve been using one for about 20 years. When I have to get a new vacuum I make sure it accommodates the Flo-Bee.

My wife is a hairdresser. I haven’t paid for a haircut since 2002. She gives me a GI haircut every two or three weeks. Not a whole lot of work involved for her as I don’t have a whole lot of hair.

-——The President is a man of the common people, -——

I don't know if the article is quoting the youtube since can't play youtube at work....

But the man of the common people doesn't fly his barber in every two weeks for a trim...

I wonder who dropped the dime on Obama on this little elitist perk

I am sure Obama finds a way to write off this expense so he is not really paying or it

I am sure in his mind he deserve such treatment, after all he is the potentate of the USA
