Donald Trump makes his hair a focal point – again


Donald Trump is going to great lengths to prove that his infamous golden combover is the real deal.

While speaking at a conference in Greenville, South Carolina, on Thursday, the GOP front-runner read an article on stage that referred to him – on the cover – as “the man of the toupee.”

“I don’t wear a toupee. It’s my hair,” Trump insisted in a video captured by CNN. “It’s my hair! I swear.”

Unsatisfied that the crowd really believed him, Trump, 69, zeroed in on a woman in the audience and summoned her to the stage.

“Real quick, we don’t want to mess it up too much because I do use hair spray. Come, come,” he told her.

Mary Margaret Bannister, a registered Republican who is married to South Carolina House Majority Leader Rep. Bruce Bannister, took the stage alongside Trump, who leaned his head forward for her inspection.

“Is it mine?” Trump asked.

“It is,” she nodded.

“Say it, please,” he instructed, pointing her toward the microphone.

“Yes, I believe it is,” she said, then confirmed that the two had never met before that moment.

“It was a very bizarre experience,” Bannister told CNN, admitting she only saw Trump’s roots and didn’t actually pull his hair.

This isn’t the first time Trump has asked a woman to inspect his hair. In the past he’s also asked Barbara Walters and Joan Rivers to test his combover, Business Insider reports.

When the real estate mogul made his first stop as a presidential candidate in New Hampshire in June, he invited a different woman on stage “to make sure it’s real,” Fox News reported.

Fox anchor Greta Van Susteren, who was watching the whole thing, was baffled. “This is the first hair-touching I’ve heard of [in a presidential campaign],” she said.

It seems Trump’s hair is a sore spot for him.

After announcing his candidacy in Iowa in June, he mocked rival Republican candidate Marco Rubio‘s hair.

“I have better hair than he does. Believe me. It is my hair,” Trump said.

During his latest toupee test on Thursday, Trump told Bannister, “You have to do an inspection … this is getting crazy.”
