Okay, this is a bit unexpected. Trump isn’t exactly the most self-deprecating kind of guy, in fact, he loves himself so much that the idea of him taking the mickey out of himself seems unbelievable.
But the President of the United States definitely just drew attention to and made fun of his own bald spot.
Whilst speaking at the Gaylord Convention Center in Maryland, Trump briefly took a break from talking about how great he was to admire himself on the cameras.
But when he turned to a less flattering angle, he revealed a surprising amount of scalp through the part in his notorious hairstyle. To the bemusement of his supporters, he attempted to “fix” his hair for them all to see.

“I try like hell to hide that bald spot, folks. I work hard” the president said.
According to Trump’s aides, he often makes comments like this one behind closed doors, but it is certainly shocking to see him recognising one of his own flaws, even if it is a very superficial one.
