Donald Trump has just acknowledged something we all knew existed – his massive bald spot.
And he tried to play it off as coolly as he could, by turning it into a self-deprecating joke.
Thanks to glorious mother nature, the true scale of the president’s baldness was revealed to the world when he raced up the stairs to Air Force One a couple weeks ago.
It was blowing one almighty gale that day and it shockingly exposed a huge patch of bare scalp.
The footage predictably went viral with some reeling with horror and others left mesmerised by the sheer mechanics of it all.
Not one to take any slight lying down, Trump took to the stage at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) yesterday, and tried his best to get a hold on the situation.
Gesturing to a picture of himself on the screens, he said: ‘What a nice picture, I’d love to hear that guy speak.
‘I try like hell to hide that bald spot, folks.
‘Doesn’t look bad. Hey, we’re hanging in.’
For months, years even, Trump’s baldness has been based on speculation.
But now he’s confirmed it, we can reveal Donald J. Trump is the first balding president in 56 years, since follically challenged Dwight D. Eisenhower left office in 1961.
His moment of honesty, however, proved a hit with his fan base, who said it was the ‘best way to respond to the haters’.
Love Trump joking about hiding that bald spot at #CPAC2018… just goes to show the man has a sense of humor. Self-deprecation is the best way to respond to the haters. PS: Donnie has beautiful hair

Although, others were keen to point out the significance of Trump acknowledging his baldness.
