Donald Trump’s weird hair has long been a source of curious speculation. Is it a wig? If not, what? That mystery has now been apparently solved. What he does is what those in the know refer to as a ‘wraparound combover’ to hide the balding that most men of his age have. There is no shame in this except for someone as vain as him. The truth was revealed when a gust of wind blew as he was climbing into his plane without wearing his cap.
He’s going to hate it that his cover is blown. (I could not resist that. Rarely do I get to make a double pun.)
While we are on trivialities, that reminds me of an idle musing that I have had and that is: Why don’t Trump’s opponents call him names?
We know that Trump loves to denigrate anyone who opposes him by appending an insulting nickname to them, such as Crooked Hillary (Clinton), Crying Chuck (Schumer), Little Marco (Rubio), Lying Ted (Cruz), Pocahontas for Elizabeth Warren, and so on. It struck me that it would be really easy for his opponents to do the same to him because there are so many accurate insults to choose from: Cowardly, Lying, Cheating, Clueless, Childish, Petulant, Silly, Stupid, Ignorant, Toddler, Nutty, are labels that immediately came to my mind and I am sure that others can be even more creative and create even cruder ones that take aim at his physical and sexual insecurities.
It seems like this would really get under the skin of such a narcissist. Of course it means sinking to his low level but political discourse in the US is so already so bad that maybe the only avenue left is to fight fire with fire so that people will think twice about using these methods.
