One of the most discussed mysteries about President Donald Trump is his hair. How long did it take to comb it into place? Is it a toupée? Is it sentient?

Alas, the US president’s hairstyle continues to mystify. Recently, he rocked a new ’do that seemed tauter than ever, inspiring a number of internet conspiracies.

On 8 March, POTUS visited tornado victims with his wife, Melania Trump, in Alabama. The First Lady’s appearance quickly bred suspicions that she has a body double, but that’s another story altogether. Internet users were equally fixated on the president’s stiff hairdo, which seemed to defy gravity.

“I thought he was wearing a cap,” tweeted writer Benjamin Schwartz, whose articles are published on The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, and more.

Twitter users chimed in, with one pointing out that Trump seemed to have channeled ‘Barney Rubble’ from The Flintstones.

“The cotton candy machine was going full tilt on this, amirite?” asked Twitter user Rebecca Frederickson.

“Less wind resistance,” remarked ‘Spaceman Eddie’, who also labeled the look “an engineering marvel.”

Those keen to replicate the hairstyle might be disappointed to learn that its process remains a mystery.
