Donald Trump Hair Brutally Mocked in New Photo


An image of former President Donald Trump has been heavily ridiculed online, with social media users calling out his appearance and branding it a photo-editing fail.

The picture in question shows Trump smiling in a tuxedo at an event. Although appearing to be very happy, his hair, or lack of it in the image, has sparked a frenzy online.

Ron Filipkowski, editor-in-chief of the Meidas Touch Network website, shared the picture on X, formerly Twitter, with the caption: “No sign of Melania yet.”

Melania Trump has been absent from several events over the last months in the lead-up to and following the death of her mother, Amalija Knavs.

Trump has an iconic look with his blonde hair/comb over, often gossiped about, as is his complexion, which many have referred to as orange.

At the time this article was published, the photo had been viewed over 170,000 times by users of the app, with the number growing as well as over 770 comments and 2,000 likes.

It didn’t take long for the social media users to comment with phrases such as “Is Trump finally going bald?” and “His hair is really thinning” appearing under the post.

One follower said: “It is quite obvious from this photo that TFG [The Former Guy] is mostly bald. That bad combover isn’t fooling anyone.”

Another questioned: “What goes on with his hair.”

The jabs continued to flow, with a spectator poking: “His hair arranging team must be off today” and a second adding: “Trump’s hair is looking mighty sparse.”

Others pointed out that his forehead looks peculiar in the image: “They LITERALLY photoshopped away his forehead. Wtf.”

This prompted another comment regarding editing photos: “They forgot to put Trump’s hair on for the photo.”

Newsweek has contacted Donald Trump’s press team via email for comment.

Trump is currently making the rounds and increasing his public appearances as he runs again to become president while also facing several criminal cases, including being charged with plotting to overturn the 2020 election in the run-up to the violent riot by his supporters at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.

He was elected the 45th president of the United States, winning as the Republican candidate against Democrat Hillary Clinton between 2017 and 2021. Trump lost his bid for reelection in 2020 against Democrat Joe Biden.

Trump recently was hit with a substantial payout in a civil defamation trial after a New York City jury ordered last week that he must pay $83.3 million in damages to E. Jean Carroll.

The payment was for statements made in 2019 where Trump claimed Carroll had lied about allegations that he sexually assaulted her inside a Manhattan department store dressing room in the 1990s.

The amount was made up of $7.3 million in compensatory damages, $11 million for reputational repair, and $65 million in punitive damages.
