Fox News Flash top headlines for February 1

Former President Donald Trump's Save America leadership PAC paid at least $132,000 to Melania Trump's former hairdresser in 2022, dubbing the expenditure as payment for "strategy consulting," according to a report from the group.

The political PAC reported the expenditure in its year-end filing earlier this week. The report details payments to the stylist, Herve Pierre Braillard, with eight installments of $18,000 and $6,000 labeled "Strategy Consulting," amounting to $132,000.

The California Target Book, a data watchdog, found Pierre had received a total of $152,500 from the PAC, but the FEC's data did not match that amount.

Melania Trump's office did not respond to a request for comment from Fox News Digital, though it acknowledged receiving one.

Pierre also did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Pierre faced questions about Save America PAC payments amounting to $60,000 in August of last year, with a spokesman telling Women's Ware Daily that "Mr. Pierre is a world-renowned artist. His work extends to many different fields, not just fashion design. His expertise is utilized for special projects and events."

"As with every other first lady, there is an after-the-White House life, which involves many other aspects than fashion. I am lucky to have worked in prestigious houses, to have designed [costumes] for ballets and more recently to work in home decor. There are many upcoming projects in this after-the-White House [stage]," Pierre told the outlet at the time.

The Save America PAC alleges that Melania Trump's hairstylist received more than $150,000 in payments in 2022.

Pierre recently touted a photo of Melania wearing a hat he designed on his Instagram page.

"Melania Trump [was] wearing my hat for the French State Visit in April 2018," he wrote in the Jan. 8 post. "I was lucky to be at the White House that day and met the French President and his wife!"

This is a little off topic here, but it does have to do with the former 'president' scumbag.

Twice, in meetings with Ms. Carroll's lawyer, Ms. Kaplan, the former 'president' called her a CUNextTuesday.

She didn't know what the scumbag was referencing because I believe she said they were going to meet next on a Wednesday until someone explained to her what he was actually saying.

Real classy huh?

Well, it isn't like there is evidence of foreign money being routed through shell companies into Trump's account or anything.

Something else for TDS sufferers to hyperventilate over.

Is it a shock that campaigns pay for a candidate and their spouse hair, makeup, and wardrobe for special occasions? Does everyone think that they just get out of bed and magically transform themselves each morning to face the press, public, and peers?

Are you also shocked that the US tax payer pays for these things once they assume the role of President or Vice President? Or that famous designers donate customs suits, dresses, etc to get their wares out in the upper elite that attend White House galas (probably think we aren't paying for those as well)- that the stylists/designers/etc attend these galas as well.

They probably look at Jill  compared to Melania and figure they must spend alot more on Melania to make her look that much better.

Sounds like some 'progressives' are jealous of Melania.

What else could it be for them to treat her in such a way?

Maybe the hairdresser is a good advisor. After all... things are going swimmingly for the Trump camp.
