Hint: Yes, he’s bald on top, like a monk. Yes, he had scalp reduction surgery. And yes, he uses blonde hair dye and massive amounts of hairspray.
Ivanka spills the beans:
“She treated her father with a degree of detachment, even irony, going so far as to make fun of his comb-over to others,” Wolff writes, as extracted in New York magazine. “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.”
“The color, she would point out to comical effect,” Woolf continues, “was from a product called Just for Men—the longer it was left on, the darker it got. Impatience resulted in Trump’s orange-blond hair color.”
Sure, Ivanka is a criminal, but at least she’s a criminal who leaks.
And at least we won’t need a grand jury to solve the mystery of Trump’s crippling sense of inadequacy.
My favorite line from the article:
Every morning, Trump is his own ’60s housewife, wrestling his bouffant to prettified submission.
Maybe this is why Trump’s so angry in the morning. You would be too if you did all that work to look so ridiculous.
