In his July 20 piece for HuffingtonPost.com titled Thank You, Donald Occidental College political scientist Peter Dreier outlines how real-estate mogul and professional entertainer Donald Trump could help Democrats win the 2016 presidential election. Dreier's thesis has Trump continuing to hassle the field of Republican presidential candidates through spring 2016, at which time he announces that he will run as an independent.
In response to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's ethnic slurs against Mexican's during his June 16 speech, Chicago area 5 Rabbit brewery announced on June 29 that it would pull its product from Trump Hotel Chicago's Rebar. 5 Rabbit found Andres Araya told the Chicago Tribune that its golden ale would not be formally renamed, but that "Chinga tu Pelo" (F*** your Hair) would be "acceptable."
Nearly two weeks after declaring during his campaign announcment:
When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best.... They’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.
Donald Trump was asked at the Madison County (Iowa) Republican Roundup dinner what he would do differently if he were elected president. His answer?
I would probably comb my hair back. Why? Because this thing is too hard to comb....I wouldn't have time, because if I were in the White House, I'd be working my ass off.
In a singularly appropriate gesture, TV celebrity and self-identifying "really rich" guy Donald Trump reportedly paid actors to cheer as he announced that he would run for president.
While comedians around the country rejoiced, here at IsItaRug.com we noted one particular contest that instantly heated up: the competition for most creative approximation of hair on a presidential candidate. Grammy-winner Cher observed on her Twitter account: "Donald Trump can't come up with a hairstyle that looks human, how can he come up with a plan to defeat ISIS,"
Noting that "[f]or as long as women have sought civic office, the press has commented as much on how they look as on what they have to say," in its May 28, 2015 issue, Elle magazine conducted an in-depth investigation of Rand Paul's hair. In keeping with Paul's status as a member of the GOP clown car of presidential candidates (declared and otherwise), writer Mattie Kahn first consulted comedian Sara Benincasa who voiced concern that Paul's propensity to cut his own hair raised grave doubts about his ability to govern. "He is obviously someone who will take on responsibilities that he really ought to refer to [professionals]," Benincasa told Kahn.
Fast forward to the end for grooming discussion.
Describing it as "Shatner's rug [mated] with a baby lamb," Charleston City Paper's Chris Haire was pondering Randy's loopy locks as long ago as 2013.
Declaring the modish mop "a thing of beauty," Haire proceeded to "give a few celebrities and VIPs the Rand Paul treatment," which he termed being "Randed."
