Donald Trump pointed out Clinton has a new "massive" hairdo
Trump's own hair has been the subject of close scrutiny
Clinton has also poked fun at Trump's hair
Asked by host Mark Levin what Clinton’s appeal to voters is, Trump simply said: “Well, she has a new hairdo, did you notice that today?”
The quip prompted Levin to suggest Clinton is wearing a wig.
“I tell you what it really was shocking to see it because you’re right it must be, it was massive. Her hair became massive,” said Trump, whose own hair has been the subject of scrutiny.
Warned that his comments might get him in trouble, Trump brushed off the potential for sparking controversy.
“I don’t care. I’m a person that tells the truth,” Trump said. “You know it was interesting to see but I’ve never seen Hillary with that hairdo so I think that’s an OK thing to say, but it was very different.”
Clinton this summer poked fun at Trump’s hair and questions swirling around the brash billionaire’s do.
“You know a lot of people have said a lot of things about my hair over the years. So I do kind of know what Donald is going through,” Clinton joked at a Democratic fundraiser in August. “And if anyone wonders if mine is real, here’s the answer: The hair is real, the color isn’t.”
“And come to think of it, I wonder if that is true for Donald, too,” Clinton added.
Trump has repeatedly sought to silence those who have questioned whether his hair is actually a toupee, allowing several interviewers as well as supporters at his rallies latch on to his locks and feel out the truth. (It’s real, according to those first-hand accounts.)
Clinton also sought to prove her hair’s authenticity while on NBC’s “The Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon earlier this year.
While talking about Trump, Clinton said, “Have you ever been able to let him touch, let you touch his hair? His real hair, have you ever really touched it?”
Fallon responded: “It feels like a hologram when he is here. No I have never touched his real hair …”
“You want to touch mine?” Clinton asked.
“Of course!” Fallon said, before grabbing Clinton’s hair and pulling it.
“It is real, it’s real, it’s real. It is real and it has wave and it is fantastic and it smells great,” he said.
In a series of tweets Thursday, conservative blogger Matt Drudge also accused Clinton of wearing a wig, prompting People Magazine to give Clinton’s hair dresser a buzz.
“She has the most amazing hair in the world,” the hairdresser, Santa Nikkels, told the magazine, calling the wig claims “ridiculous.”
