President Donald Trump has a hard iconic gaze that we see very often.

Trump gaze

This look is not one of icy hate or bitterness, as many liberals like to imagine. It is a look of determined Frame. Nothing goes past him without getting filtered through his world view.

He holds this expression whenever he is listening intently, or speaking his mind.

Trump never makes the mistake of using second person ‘you’ while holding this expression. To do so would be granting authority to the person spoken to, and would be a descent into contempt. If he does use second person, it is to put his finger on a specific motive or behavior, to make it clear that it is unacceptable and needs to be improved.

Trump happy

It is not a cold, heartless look. Underlying the tough as nails exterior, there is always confidence and a glimmer of hope in his eye. There is dignity and self control.

But Trump is not the only man who ever wore this look.

Put aside your political biases for a moment, and just consider Trump’s Russian contemporary, Vladimir Putin, as a red blooded man.


Putin rose to power through the Russian KGB, so we know he’s got to be one h&ll of a SOB Alpha male with an iron capital ‘A’. He also carries this steely eyed gaze.

We often find that men who have this look are labeled ‘sexist’ and ‘misogynist’. A fair translation of this femtalk would be, ‘raw, masculine power’, and of course, we know that’s ‘toxic’ to those ugly, low T underlings who seek to flex their own flab.

This is Richard Branson, the founder of the Virgin group, Virgin Atlantic, Virgin Records, etc. It’s a small wonder that he has never had a sexism charged placed against him merely by virtue of his company name. Look, he has the same look as Trump does.


Look how Branson is objectifying this poor woman! That’s some serious ‘sexism’ right there!

Well, when you’re a British Knight who’s worth 5.1 Billion, the possibility of a spurious #metoo reverse-sexual harassment is significant, except it doesn’t matter, because 5.1 Billion could cover more than 5,000 million dollar settlements. To put that into context, that’s more than a hundred gold diggers a year for 50 years. H&ll, he could pay off any one claim with pocket change! But seriously, Sir Branson has never had any #metoo accusations. Is it because he’s never been close to a woman? Heh… It’s probably because he’s a world class alpha male, with an SMV in the triple digit range.

But the Trump look is not limited to politics and business. Many of those ‘old school’ movie stars have the same appearance. Here’s Chuck Norris.

Chuck Norris

An outspoken Christian, Norris is the author of several Christian-themed books, such as The Justice Riders. His subject matter varies from martial arts, exercise, philosophy, politics, Christian religion, western novels, to biography. He was twice a New York Times best-selling author. Also in 2006, Norris began penning a column for the news website WorldNetDaily, sharing his views on politics, American social issues, sports, and health.

He has also been in a few TV commercials promoting Bible study and prayer in public schools, in addition to efforts to reduce drug use. In his WorldNetDaily columns, he has expressed his belief in Biblical creationism, that those who are troubled should turn to Jesus, and is quoted as saying ‘true patriots’ do not stay clear of discussing religion and politics.


Speaking of Patriots, Mel Gibson has been noted for having Kamikazi eyes, combined with the deranged, ‘bite your head off’ Jack Nicklaus grin. This is the warpath version of the Trump Look, which men develop when they’re marching off to conquer massive onslaughts of teeming whoards of poon. This picture was taken shortly after he made the news for making ‘anti-semitic’ comments. Obviously, he was quite proud of himself.

And here’s another movie hero who dominated politics later in life, much like Ronald Reagan did.


Schwarzenegger began weight training at the age of 15. He won the Mr. Universe title at age 20 and went on to win the Mr. Olympia contest seven times! He was said to have the most perfect body in bodybuilding history. Not only his muscular structure, but even the veins in his arms and legs were symmetrical!

After he became the Governator, he cleaned up Californian politics quite nicely. How can you trim the budget when you can’t even trim the fat off of your own @$$???

Another star, and one of my favorites, is Clint Eastwood.

Clint Eastwood

Eastwood singlehandedly made the Trump look famous, even while Trump was a philandering, young business tycoon. And he clenches that cigar just as straight as his Winchester (and probably something else too).


Sir Winston Churchill, largely credited for saving Britain from Nazi Germany during World War Two, also carries the Trump look. This is the look of a man who stands up to Hitler and says,

“I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.”

Going back even further, we find that the Trump look has been around for quite a while.

President Theodore Roosevelt, famous for his phrase, “Get action!” had the Trump look, and beamed it through spectacles, no less. This is the President who transformed the U.S. from being a backwoods hick country, recovering from the civil war, to a major world power. He built the navy to be the largest in the world during his presidency, and paraded it around the world. He took Cuba and the Philippines back from Spain. He was also famous for his explorations of the Amazon and his big game hunting safaris in Africa.


Can females wear the Trump look? The female actor in the Neo-Bond film, John Wick, also shows this look. But somehow, it just doesn’t work for women. The impression is there, but somehow, it’s just inappropriate – not conducive to the feminine enticement to breed.


Moral of the story: More men, and fewer women, need to develop the Trump look.

    Give it about 10-20 years when all her objectifications wither. Then it’ll be sexism.

      Case in point…that broad Asia Argento who was with Anthony Bourdain when he killed himself. She was a looker in her youth before she went all tatted up, old, and SJW. She even admitted consensual sex with Weinstein along with sexual abuse. It’s all fun and games when you are young and perky but turns to bitter scorn when nobody notices you anymore.

    Men prefer women with high, breathy voices as it signifies youth. Women’s voices tend to get lower as they age. A higher pitched voice is also thought to denote small body size.

    Female listeners prefer a male voice that signals a large body size with low pitch.

    Men are attracted to women who smile, but it’s not true the other way around.

    Research found that smiling females were rated as more attractive, whereas men showing happy emotions were rated as less attractive.

    The sharply, naturally arched eyebrow is called the “dramatic eyebrow” because it mimics the angry furrowed brow without the rest of face needing to signal actual anger. It puts people on the defensive; very useful if the subject knows how to take advantage of that.

    Generally, our eyebrows determine how people initially perceive us because they’re highly visible and contribute to our automatic facial appearance, that is, before any muscles get involved. Cheeks and jaws aren’t fleshy either but can still be shaped over time by muscle habits. Example, aggressive men have jowls because of extra muscle grown by constantly clenching the jaw. Hello, Churchill.

    Deepset eyes indicate a history of adversity and wariness. Say to yourself “I doubt that” three times right now and you can feel the muscles in front of your eyes tighten automatically.

    “Can females wear the Trump look? … The impression is there, but somehow, it’s just inappropriate – not conducive to the feminine enticement to breed.”

    They don’t have the bone structures to back up aggressive eyes & eyebrows. The resulting face is 1/4 dominance and 3/4 submission. It’s an unnatural look; facial symmetry is more than left/right balance, it’s also having congruent features. Notice the men pulling off the Trump look either have short necks that emphasize the jaw or beards, like Commander Riker did:

    Riker’s natural jaw wasn’t weak but contrasted against his long neck, it just didn’t stand out. The beard gave him a much more “executive” look because it emphasized the jawline–very black for contrast against his white skin and running along his entire jaw. A mere goatee wouldn’t have worked.

    Cannot agree with your inclusion of Churchill. Sure, he may have had the look to a point, but he was one of the men who conned Britain into a war that doomed Europe to communism. Of course, there is more to his story of personal corruption, but that is beyond the scope of your article. Just having the look does not make a man a great and decent man.

      Larry, the Trump look was actually a common sight among men before WW2. I have read some other articles that criticized Churchill (although I cannot remember the sources now, maybe Henry Makow). The general claim was that Churchill was a member of the early 20th century’s version of the International Deep State, and so was FDR, Stalin, the bankers, and a whole lot of others. I tend to believe that most conspiracy theories are based on some truth. Anyway, Churchill was certainly a man of stubborn resolve. Hitler also had the Trump look, but I left him out for obvious reasons.

    Unfortunately, boys in the western world are taught to be less than women and girls are taught to be something other than woman, not feminine. More boys need the leader look. Thanks for the great blog.
