Do You See What Others Are Seeing About President Trump’s Scalp? Look Closely (Video)
A video of President Donald Trump’s hair blowing in the wind is going viral on social media (video below).
The video was uploaded on YouTube. It shows Trump saluting troops while boarding Air Force One, the Evening Standard reported.
But while Trump makes his way up the stairs to board the plane, a decent gust of wind creeps up from behind him to expose his balding scalp.
The president’s male pattern baldness had social media users talking. Most comments were quite merciless.
“Can’t he afford a decent wig? Or at at least a few hairpins to hold that mess down on windy days?” questioned one YouTube user. “Yikes this can’t be unseen!”
“Huh. A thin facade, failing to adequately conceal the hideousness underneath,” wrote another. “Just like everything else about him.”
“He has to be the most fake person on the planet,” added another commenter. “I think I’m going to be sick. No wonder Melania gives the ‘who stepped in poo’ face whenever he’s around.”
“What species of animal is walking on his head?” quipped one user.
“Cheeto will spend all day tomorrow tweeting that this is ‘FAKE NEWS,'” joked another.
One user suggested another method Trump could use to cover his hair loss.
“Maybe he could wear a cute head scarf. Oh, a red one with MAGA embroidered on it,” wrote the user. “Or MMHGA [Make My Hair Great Again]. I can see it now.”
While most commenters poked fun at the president, others defended Trump, and even questioned the authenticity of the clip.
“So what? He has thinning hair!” wrote one user. “You guys have nothing better to do [than] make fun of our president’s hair? You guys are sick!”
“S**t job editing,” added another. “So much hate from the left. Anyone that thinks this video hasn’t been altered is a complete fool. Idiots.”
But HuffPost journalist Ashley Feinberg, who posted the video on her Twitter account, shared photos from Reuters that are consistent with what was seen in the video.
“At first I [didn’t] think this could possibly be real but…. I think it is?” Feinberg tweeted. “This is from a reuters photo…. folks, i think it’s real.”
Trump has previously denied allegations that he wears a wig. However, his recent medical examination revealed that he takes pills to prevent hair loss.
The video has been viewed more than 70,000 times in just two days.
