In his first public remarks since his 2020 presidential election loss, outgoing President Donald Trump discussed the prospects of a COVID-19 vaccine during a Rose Garden press conference on Friday, Nov. 13. But it wasn’t his message that got people talking — it was his gray hair.

“Oddly, Trump is suddenly no longer blonde,” columnist Frida Ghitis tweeted. “His hair appears to have turned gray since Election Day.”

Trump appears to have let his natural gray hair show.

“I know this isn’t important, but Trump finally stopped coloring his hair,” wrote another Twitter user, uploading a side-by-side comparison of Trump with his usual blond hair and him with his grayer coif. “These photos are nine days apart.”

Another Twitter user used a computerized color sampler to pinpoint the hue of Trump’s new ‘do. “It’s gray,” that user declared.

Filmmaker Jesse Hawken, meanwhile, said that “we need to talk about how Trump’s hair colorist bailed out on him.”

“Or he’s trying to gradually morph into Joe Biden and hope we don’t notice,” another user quipped.

Trump’s hair has confused people for years.

Even before Trump seemingly went gray, his hair was a topic of national scrutiny … and confusion. 

“To gaze upon Donald Trump’s hair is like trying to make sense of a particularly elaborate M.C. Escher drawing,” The Cut’s Madeleine Aggeler wrote in 2018. “Just when you think you’ve figured out how all of the straw-colored, gossamer strands fit together, he turns his head and you realize nothing is what it seems, reality is an illusion, and life is pointless.”

In the book Fire and Fury: Inside Trump’s White House, reporter Michael Wolff claimed Trump’s hairstyle is a combover — and a combover that his daughter Ivanka makes fun of.

“She often described the mechanics behind it to friends: an absolutely clean pate — a contained island after scalp-reduction ­surgery — surrounded by a furry circle of hair around the sides and front, from which all ends are drawn up to meet in the center and then swept back and secured by a stiffening spray,” Wolff wrote in an excerpt published by New York Magazine.

“The color, she would point out to comical effect, was from a product called Just for Men — the longer it was left on, the darker it got. Impatience resulted in Trump’s orange-blond hair color.”

Perhaps he’s especially impatient now, then?
