Late Night Tackles President Trump

Jimmy Kimmel asked real hairstylists about Trump's unfortunate, windy hairstyle malfunction

If you haven't seen "the video of President Trump's hair flapping in the wind ... you're in for a bigly treat," Jimmy Kimmel said on Wednesday's Kimmel Live, playing the video (twice). "Now the red hats make sense," he joked. "This is why Darth Vader had the good sense to wear a helmet. According to White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, the president's hair stayed perfectly still, he does not have a bald spot, and anything to the contrary is fake news." (She didn't say that.)

Kimmel then recounted an odd attack Trump made during the campaign against windmill farms. "Now we know why he's anti-wind!" he said. "He says that it's because of the birds, but he doesn't care about birds — the guy eats Kentucky Fried Chicken twice a week!"

But Kimmel wasn't there just to poke fun at Trump's coiffure. "I was so taken by this video, we decided to go around town today to ask real hairstyling professionals what they think is going on on our president's head," he said. Most of the coiffeurs had less-than-constructive criticism of Trump's hairstyle malfunction, but Wilbert at Fade University had a solution that Trump may want to try out before future encounters with the elements.
