Overnight, Trump’s signature flaxen hair had been replaced by a new bright silver shade. Of course, a number of theories were floated about the Love what You do Wawa shirt but in fact I love this motive behind his newly blanched hair. One Twitter user theorized that Trump was seeking a more dignified look for the 2020 race, which would certainly align with his brazen political strategizing in the face of a global crisis. Another wondered if it was a symptom of practicing social distancing and being unable to see his hair colorist. If it’s the latter, did Trump take matters into his own hands with a box of Just for Men? Or is it that, after ignoring public-health officials and downplaying the life-threatening nature of COVID-19, the stress of the situation is finally setting in and turning him gray?
