If you saw any of President Donald Trump’s daily coronavirus briefing on Monday, then you probably know that he was in rare form, speaking in incomplete sentences, rambling on endlessly, and at times making even less sense than he usually does.
But some eagle-eyed Trump watchers noticed something else: Trump’s bald spot was in plain view in a way it hasn’t been in years:
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

Gotta admit, that does look quite different for the Trump coif. Has he lost more hair in recent months and we just didn’t notice until now?
Twitter was filled with takes on the partial Trump chrome dome:
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

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.

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.)

Trump’s comb over always reminds me of the scenes in American Hustle where Christian Bale’s character slavishly styles his elaborate hairdo.

@realDonaldTrump needs someone who can refurbish his birds nest

“The virus is receding” – Trump
As is your hairline

Poor poor Donnie. He’s failing at everything, including hiding the fact that he’s just a few strands of limp, lifeless hair away from looking like Uncle Fester, who would still be a better president than the Donald.
