Confirmed: Thing atop Trump’s head is his real hair

Confirmed: Thing atop Trump’s head is his real hair

‘I don’t wear a toupee! It’s my hair, I swear!’

“Ricardo Sanchez known as “El Mandril” on his Spanish drive-time radio show in Los Angeles has taken to calling Donald J. Trump, “el hombre del peluquin.” In other words, “The Man of the Toupee,” read Trump to an audience in South Carolina. “This is on the front page of the New York Times.”

Entitled, Donald Trump Gets Earful in Spanish as Latino Outlets Air Disdain, the NTYs article Trump read explored how Spanish media was handling his remarks about the Latino community.

Ricardo Sánchez, known as “El Mandril” on his Spanish drive-time radio show in Los Angeles, has taken to calling Donald J. Trump “El hombre del peluquín” — the man of the toupee.

Some of Mr. Sánchez’s listeners are less kind, referring to Mr. Trump, who has dismissed some Mexican immigrants as “rapists” and criminals, simply as “Hitler.”

Mr. Sánchez says that he tries to focus on the positive in presidential politics, but he, too, at times has used harsh language to describe Mr. Trump, according to translations of his show provided by his executive producer.

“A president like Trump would be like giving a loaded gun to a monkey,” Mr. Sanchez said in one broadcast. “But a gun that fires atomic bullets.”

The adversarial relationship between Mr. Trump and the Spanish-language news media, which has simmered publicly since he announced his candidacy in June, boiled over on Tuesday at a news conference in Dubuque, Iowa, when the candidate erupted at Jorge Ramos, the main news anchor at Univision and Fusion, when he tried to ask a question without being called on. Mr. Trump signaled to one of his security guards, who removed Mr. Ramos from the event.

Which lead Trump to clarify publicly clarify the oft-talked about issue of his interesting doo.

“I don’t wear a toupee!” declared Trump. “It’s my hair, I swear!”

“Come here!” Trump said pointing to an audience member. “Come here! We’re gonna settle this. You know, Barbara Walters did it. Barbara Walter’s named me the most Whatever-It-Is-Of-The-Year — just come up here. You have to do an inspection. This is getting crazy. This is crazy. Just real quick. We don’t want to mess it up too much because I do use hairspray.”

Then an audience member tugged on his hair and testified before the whole of the crowd that the thing atop Trump’s head was indeed his hair.

“They’ll be ga-ga at the go-go, when they see Trump in his toga
His toga made of blond, brilliantined, biblical hair”

    I wonder if those giving me a thumbs down recognize that I was only using the lyrics from the musical Hair.

    It is a nod to how Trump is a radical change in politics, Hair and all.

That is definitely his hair…grown long on the sides and back and combed all over his head to hide his bald crown and then shellacked to stay in place. He dyes it orange so there is no doubt he was sired by an orangutan.

    Trump should appropriate David Letterman’s defense: “Hey, if I was going to wear a toupee, don’t you think I could afford a better looking one?”

      I heard someone say that the first time they saw Trump’s hair was when it was starring as the gopher in “Caddyshack”.
      Everybody likes “Caddyshack”. He should go with that.

If Obama and his allies in the media attempted to harm what is left of the Republican brand, they could not have come ip with a better instrument that Trump.

Trump has had the same crappy haircut for the last 50 years. It’s past time for a makeover.

Hair of the dog: Ricardo Sánchez, “el hombre de los ilegales”!

Glad to see that there’s still no substance to the numerous attacks on Trump. It is a pity, though, that his rise in popularity has caused some usually witty, intelligent commenters to have become totally unhinged.

I remain hopeful that at least some of you will regain your senses; but so long as you support “conservatives” like Weepy Boehner and Turtle McConnell- I guess my hope is in vain. You’ll be feeling better now that Yeb! has engaged Eric Cantor; he’s another rock-ribbed conservative I suppose.

If you are able to entertain other notions without flipping out even further, I strongly urge you to have a look at The Conservative Treehouse, which discusses Cantor:

    Poor Crazy Cat Lady…!!!

    Why don’t you post the earliest time you slammed Kantor.

    Next, post the earliest time your “conservative” Tree Sloughs slammed Kantor.

    Because I will bet several of us here were ahead of you and the Sloughs.

    That you CAN’T see the substance in positions anti-Mr. Establishment just means YOU are the one with a perception issue. Or, delusional in short.

      Thanks Rags, that’s a perfect comment to illustrate my point! 😛

      (Please remember to take your blood pressure meds. Such fury can be dangerous to your health without medication.)

      As to Cantor- hey, I’m not endorsing him; apparently you are, along with Yeb! Talk about delusional… 😉

A question is posed; he answers it. There in microcosm lies a great deal of his appeal.

No dodging or evading, no running it past a focus group, no calling in an attack dog to try to ridicule the questioner …

And some still claim to be puzzled at the guy’s popularity. He’s a hurricane blast of fresh air, at least to those accustomed to the fœtid stale deadness of what’s been coming out of Washington for the past decade or so.

It’s disappointing that Trump can’t manage to pronounced “peluquin” in a way that resembles Spanish.

I shouldn’t complain: almost no Amerikan can pronounce Don Juan or Don Quixote correctly in either Spanish or English.

Juan Williams can’t even pronounce his own first name correctly in Spanish or English.

Sad, but the last President we’ve had who could converse normally in a foreign language was Teddy Roosevelt, and we’ve since had some like George Bush who couldn’t even speak normal English.

Angela Merkel, on the other hand, can converse in at least 3 languages and she’s a PhD Physicist besides. We Amerikans haven’t had but three STEMs, Jefferson, Hoover and Carter, as president.

Every Istanbul taxi driver is more savvy in languages and science than Hillary or Donald Trump.
