French President paid €26,000 for make-up, and the french are like 'non merci'

French President paid €26,000 for make-up, and the french are like 'non merci'French president Emmanuel Macron may seem like he's still riding high on his May electoral victory and all the perks that come with it (like getting an official portrait and shaking hands with other world leaders), but now he's learning something new about presidential backlash: When it comes to literally keeping up appearances, there's little margin for error.  SEE ALSO: Emmanuel Macron is basically James Bond IRL and people can't cope Macron is now coming under fire for racking up an eye-popping €26,000 bill for make-up in just his first three months in office (that's just shy of $ 31,000 US). The story was first reported by French news outlet
LePointe but has since spread across the globe, — and the internet — that Macron has paid two bills (€16,000/$ 19,000 and €10,000/$ 12,000) to make-up artist Natacha M. According to
The Guardian, Macrons's aids insist it was "a matter of urgency" and provided services for "press conferences and foreign trips where the person concerned has to travel with him." Maybe it's all part of his effort to keep upstaging Trump. Racking up these sorts of expenses isn't unusual for heads of state in France. François Hollande, according to LePointe, paid €10,000 for his hairdresser and €6,000 for make-up. This controversy probably sounds mighty familiar to Americans, too. There was Bill Clinton's infamous runway haircut. Populist Democratic candidate John Edwards faced similar spend-shaming over his high-price trim. And, of course, Sarah Palin's six-digit shopping spree ahead of the 2008 election.  Not helping matters: Macron's approval rating is already plummeting because of his promise to reform France's long-standing labor code. Macron's people admitted the price was high and said the costs will be much lower from here on out but, frankly, it's too late and we now have a new nickname for him: Viva la E-Money. WATCH: Trump is getting crushed at his own handshake game

Trump campaign paid lawyer now representing son $50,000 before emails released 

Trump campaign paid lawyer now representing son $  50,000 before emails released Donald Trump's presidential re-election campaign made a $ 50,000 payment in June to the law office now representing Donald Trump Jr. more than a week before revelations that the president's son had met with a Russian lawyer during the campaign. The payment to the Law Offices of Alan S. Futerfas, dated June 27, was disclosed in a filing with the Federal Election Commission on Saturday. It was described as covering "legal consulting" fees. Separately, the campaign also paid Jones Day, the law firm that represented Trump's campaign during the election. Spokesmen for Trump's re-election campaign and Futerfas could not be immediately reached for comment. Donald Trump and Russian espionage Futerfas was announced as Trump Jr.'s lawyer on Monday after a New York Times report detailed meetings between the president's eldest son and a Russian lawyer. A federal special counsel and several congressional panels are investigating allegations by U.S. intelligence agencies that Russia meddled in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and potential connections between Russian officials and the Trump campaign. Moscow has denied any interference and the president and Trump Jr. have denied any collusion. Donald Trump Jnr emails related content The campaign also paid $ 89,561 to The Trump Corporation for "legal consulting." The company, owned by the president, is not a law firm. They payment was dated June 30th. In the second quarter of 2017, Trump's re-election campaign raised about $ 8 million and spent $ 4.4 million. Trump filed for re-election the day after taking office – allowing his campaign to continue to raise and spend money while he is in office. The Federal Election Commission has previously ruled that candidates and federal office holders may spend campaign funds on legal fees that are part of legal actions that would not have been necessary if they were not a candidate. Trump has also hired outside counsel being led Marc Kasowitz. His campaign finance disclosure did not list any payments to Kasowitz.
