In response to frequent media references to his famous hair-do, presidential hopeful Donald Trump allowed a speech attendee to pet his hair on Thursday to prove that it is, indeed, real.
The leading 2016 GOP presidential candidate kicked off an event in Greenville, South Carolina by addressing a New York Times article in which a Latino broadcaster referred to Trump as “El hombre del peluquín,” which translates to “the man with the toupee,” according to Fox Carolina.
To debunk the claim, Trump invited a woman in the crowd on stage and proceeded to let her rub his head to see if it was real. When asked after her inspection whether or not she thought Trump’s mane was authentic, the woman responded “yes, I believe it is.”
Trump holds a commanding lead of the Republican presidential field with 28% of GOP voters’ support, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday.
