Trump Suddenly Has a Big Ol’ Bald Spot on His Head and It Has Everyone Talking
With so much intense news coverage out about some very sobering things happening both yesterday and today, it is good to pull back and bit and just heap some completely gratuitous and useless scorn upon Donald Trump. There is plenty of time to break down COVID, Beirut, the economy, all it, later.
Just take a break for a second and instead of trying to figure out what’s going on inside Trump’s head, let’s attempt to figure out what’s going on at the very top.
In Monday’s news conference, the one in which Trump spent twenty minutes talking about developments in “tele-health” and a bunch of other topics that no one particularly cares about, while avoiding the ones we do, Trump was seen to have … something different, and wrong, in his famous weave up top. It looks like he very suddenly grew a bald spot.
His comb-over no longer hides the bald spot. (Calling it a bald spot is unfair, it looks like half his head is bald.) pic.twitter.com/HzjspPt26D

To be fair, no one suddenly “grows a bald spot,” it is just that – perhaps due to COVID – some people are having a harder and harder time keeping up their hair. Some of us cut our own hair with clippers, and maybe Trump no longer has anyone to weave good-hair in? Tough to tell, but the bald spot is very much in evidence.
What you are seeing when you watch Trump: an old, fat, gray haired, bald guy. (The blond hair is just gray hair, dyed; the comb-back is hair-sprayed, to hide front-to- back baldness.)

Well, fair enough, everyone else is having trouble with their hair, why not him? And it is even more fitting that he is a man who has gone to such huge lengths to keep that matt on top, and yet hardly any lengths to keep COVID out of the country. Had he simply exerted as much energy in fighting COVID as his bald spot …
Never mind. People aren’t impressed:
Hey @ProjectLincoln what's up with @realDonaldTrump hair? Massive bald streak in the middle. Can he not do a comb over anymore? @kaitlancollins @KellyO @Acosta #TrumpBaldStreak pic.twitter.com/CdYF5CnZN1

Tell Trump to get a new hairstyle… the bald spot is huge and it’s just getting awkward to look at and probably embarrassing for him. Change it up. Cut it.

As I look at the top of Don’s Johns Trump extra long front to back comb over, I think I see something akin to the parting of the waters in The Ten Commandments. Only a matter of time before we might be seeing dry skin.

He should just shave or buzz it. If mine gets too bad ill do that. He clearly has no gay friends to help him with style. He should stop spray tanning, buzz his head, get well fitted clothes.

Trump image from mar a lago – he’s pretty bald- the hair he has from the sides is probably 3 feet long that he wraps around. pic.twitter.com/m60hWnrKdZ
