Just in case there’s anyone left in the world who doesn’t already know, allow me to state a fact about failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump: He’s been going bald for decades.
For years, there have been rumors that Trump is indeed losing his hair and has gone to extreme lengths to hide it. For example, a 2018 article from the New York Post:
President Trump’s bizarre hairdo is the result of scalp-reduction surgery, careful styling held in place by strong hairspray — and too much cheap dye, according to a new book.
Daughter Ivanka Trump often makes fun of her dad’s comb-over to friends and delights in explaining how the crazy coiffure comes together, according to “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.“
“She often described the mechanics behind it to friends: an absolutely clean pate — a contained island after scalp-reduction surgery — surrounded by a furry circle of hair around the sides and front, from which all ends are drawn up to meet in the center and then swept back and secured by a stiffening spray,” journalist Michael Wolff writes in the book, out Jan. 9.
In other words, Trump has had sections of his scalp reduced by surgery and now has what can most charitably be called one hell of a hair weave.
And now we have new video which seems to prove the hair weave theory as per Wolff’s book.
In the video, posted online by Molly Jong-Fast, a fast food worker asks Donnie if she can pray for him. He agrees and that’s when the weave becomes embarrassingly visible. Take a look:
That was all it took so set off waves of laughter and mockery on social media.
