Trump also claimed his Democratic opponent Joe Biden would “abolish the suburbs,” though it seems literally no one understands what the president meant by that. It was supposed to be a news conference, though Trump only spent six of the 63-minute appearance taking questions from reporters, per The New York Times.
One Twitter use wrote: “YO I GUESS THEY STOPPED DYING TRUMPS HAIR CUZ ITS FULLY GREY NOW???? Theories abound, including one that suggests the president may be trying to look like his challenger, Joe Biden.
One Twitter theorist surmised that Trump “knows he probably can't beat Biden, so he's now trying to emulate him.? One of the more entertaining possibilities concerning President Donald Trump's new hair ties back to American history, as some experts believe the New York native has taken a page out of George Washington's playbook.
“What I think might be happening is a kind of manipulation of the American public in which he is attempting to show citizens that he is suffering as well,” COE said, noting how Washington highlighted his aging at the end of the Revolutionary War in 1783. It seems unlikely as, COE acknowledged, the president shows little interest in American history.
But who knows, Trump could still emerge wearing a powdered wig in the coming months, or unveil a painting of himself crossing the Delaware River by boat. And whatever the reason, everyone knows Trump keeps close tabs on Twitter, so he'll likely address all those tweets about his tresses soon enough.
If you keep an eye on politics and the news, you may notice that the president's mane is a frequently broached subject. It's the kind of topic that has been covered in the New York Times, TIME magazine, Rolling Stone, New York Magazine, and other places.
So, if you're ever been interested in a photo history of Donald Trump's hair, here's your chance to take it all in. For what it's worth, the president also seems to be aware of the public's curiosity in his locks.
In January, People Magazine wrote about Trump's White House doctor, Ronny Jackson, who said that Trump takes Alopecia, a common pill for male baldness taken once a day to purportedly slow hair loss. So it won't be wrong to say that the president puts care into mishear.
Here's a detailed and up close view of the president's hair from the front. If you've wondered what exactly Trump's hair color is, don't worry; Vanity Fair interviewed 32 celebrities who tried to describe Trump's hair color at the Toronto Film Festival in 2015.
Maybe this kind of from-the-top lighting should help people figure what Trump's hair color is. It may look thin from this angle but as Trump has assured the public time and again that mishear doing just fine.
In 2011, the former Celebrity Apprentice host appeared in an in-depth Rolling Stone interview and explained mishear routine with intricate detail. It takes about an hour,” Trump said about his morning routine.
Remember that bit about Trump showing his balding spot to his Maryland audience in February? While some may not be interested in looking at Trump's thinning spot, combed sides, coiffed top, and other mane-related things, one thing is clear: mishear is going to be a topic for as long as he's President of the United States.
Whatever your feelings about Donald Trump and his presidential ambitions, we have no intention of challenging or reinforcing them. During several campaign rallies, he’s invited women to examine mishear, confirming that it is real and is indeed attached to his head.
So why does he comb it like he’s televangelist Benny Hind? Michael R. Cunningham, Ph.D., a professor and psychologist at the University of Louisville, doesn’t think this is so far-fetched.
In the 1993 highly-unauthorized book Lost Tycoon: The Many Lives of Donald J. Trump, the Donald allegedly confronted his then-wife, Ivana, over a botched scalp flap surgery by a plastic surgeon she had recommended. “Your fucking doctor has ruined me!” Trump purportedly screamed at her, before pulling out fistfuls of her hair.
Dr. Richard Fleming, M.D., a plastic surgeon and co-director of the Institute, says that he and Dr. Mayer “were the first people in the country to use the flaps.” While he insists Trump has never been a client, he’s happy to speculate.
“Some lady pulled up mishear at a rally, and it looked totally normal to me. It looks like he has a natural, full head of hair.
I didn’t see any scar, I didn't see any abnormality, or anything that would be indicative of poor surgery.” In a 2011 interview with Rolling Stone, Trump claimed that he “actually (doesn’t) have a bad hairline.
But follow his lateral eye straight up, and there’s no apex to his hairline. Instead, Dr. Andrews went with the blue line, which created a more natural hairline recession.
“That’s what a man with thinning hair actually looks like,” he says. The scalp flap surgery creates a hairline that follows the red line, not the more realistic blue one.
There’s only one man who knows the full story, and he’s sticking to his version. “My hair is 100 percent mine,” he wrote in his 2004 book Trump : How to Get Rich.

While COE acknowledges the long-held truth that being president ages a person, she doesn’t believe Trump ’s silver hair is a sudden physical manifestation of emotional strain as the coronavirus wreaks havoc on the U.S. but rather a studied strategy. COE cites an instance in which George Washington showcased vulnerability as he faced rebellion at the end of the Revolutionary War in 1783.
“Gentlemen, you must pardon me, for I have grown not only gray but blind in the service of my country,” said Washington as he pulled out a pair of glasses while reading a letter aloud to his troop. It is one of the most well-known stories about Washington, and presidents tend to look to him for inspiration.” Still, COE notes that because Trump appears to show no interest in presidential or American history, it’s unlikely he’s drawing from the past.
“He wants to be easily recognized in the same way a car salesman does, so this is a surprising departure for his brand.” If going gray was indeed Trump ’s conscious choice, she’s almost certain the idea didn’t originate from him. A narrative contrivance that won’t be lost on many, Trump ’s newly minted gray hair is just another way he’s showing his true colors amid catastrophic tragedy.
