Why Trump's hair matters

Hair is important. If a man has a nice round or oval head, he can pull off baldness. Most of us need hair. Trump certainly does and his mane is a subject of ridicule among the the conservative elite, who ironically have no idea what it is.

Remember last summer when a writer for the National Review wrote: "In Trump’s boat, the master stateroom has a tortoise-shell (the chic, endangered variety) ceiling and the master bedroom has its own barber chair for touching up that famous toupee..."

Ah, another great insight from our political experts in Washington.

The Daily Mail decided to find out the real scoop on Trump's hair. It is a fun read:
Donald Trump's hair has been a hot topic of discussion long before his name landed on the Republican presidential ticket, and now his former hairdresser is revealing its secrets. 
Amy Lasch, 52, worked with the Donald on the early seasons of The Apprentice, where she found out that his famous golden locks were 100 percent real.  
Lasch was shocked when she found that she could barely comb through his mane, which was 'solid and matted' because Trump applied so much gel to it every day
(Sings) Brylcreem -- a tub of it'll do ya/ Brylcreem -- you look so debonair/ Brylcreem -- the girls will all pursue ya / They won't get their fingers in your hair!

Looks matter. He looks good. His critics know this, which is why they ridicule his appearance. Dehuanizing people is a Saul Alinsky tactic. Jonah Goldberg diminished himself when he called Trump's skin color "Creamsicle-orange." Don't worry. In my book I also admonish Trump for calling people clowns. The way top change the political discourse is to change yours.

Trump's hair is a mixture of silver and gold that makes him the lion -- the king of the political jungle.

Do not underestimate the power of the hair. Hillary's is not bad, but his is superior.

His dress-for-success attire serves him well, as it stands presidential in contrast to his many, many moments when he does not sound presidential. The blue denim shirt and tan khakis look popularized by George W. Bush has given way to an, ahem, more suitable style. Trump is urban, Bush is not. The idea is to project who you are.

"Trump the Press: Don Surber's take on how the pundits blew the 2016 Republican race," is now on sale.

Steve Hayward of Power Line, Leslie Eastman at Legal Insurrection, Deny Wilson at Grouchy Old Crouch, and Austin Bay at Instapundit gave it glowing reviews.

  1. Are you sure its Brylcreem? I would think that The Donald is a Dapper Dan man. - Elric

  2. Surber: "You know the world has turned upside down when the man [Trump] with the world's worst toupee is talking sense."
    Slow blog day, eh Don?

  3. Toupee or not, he handed Cruz the rope and the whiney jackass was dumb enough to use it. Cruz shows class like Mr pen and phone.

  4. I believe the same person you quoted also said Trump much prefers not to spend his money on hairdressers. The Donald is a true Scot, thrifty through and through. If he's careful with his money, I have some hope he'll be careful with ours. We know that Hillary, like every other Democrat who gets into office, is genetically incapable of showing restraint when it comes to handling other people's money.

  5. You can YouTube a video of Larry King running his fingers through Trump's hair in an interview done many years ago. Trump told King that the press makes fun of him with it and that they'd make fun of him if he changed it, so he was keeping it the way if was. Stuff rolls off the guy like water. His Twitter reaction to Lyin'Ted's speech is a good example. He picks his fights very well. Good instincts.

  6. Lemme know when flowing beards come back in for politicians, and I'll stand for office.

  7. This hilarious graphic was posted on The Conservative Treehouse. TRUMP 2016 … THERE WILL BE HELL TOUPEÉ

  8. "Do not underestimate the power of the hair."

    Samson agrees: “A razor has never come to my head; for I have been a nazirite to God from my mother’s womb. If my head were shaved, then my strength would leave me”

    182 days until Obama leaves office. But who's counting?
