In news that no one really ever needed know, but will now undoubtedly be unable to forget, Megyn Kelly has confirmed that Donald Trump‘s notorious mane is indeed real — because she ran her hands through it.

Although the two traded words for months, Kelly unexpectedly defended the presumptive GOP nominee’s look during a Watch What Happens Live appearance the day before her much-anticipated interview with Trump.

Kelly told host Andy Cohen that Trump’s trademark bouffant hairdo was bona fide, sharing, “I would say the hair is real. I have laid hands on it personally. That is not a wig, and it’s not a combover, either.” The Fox News host even elaborated that she got hands-on when it came to verifying his hair’s authenticity.

“I have run my fingers through it. We used to get along!” Kelly said. “I stuck my hands under there, I shoved my hands up in that hair, and that’s real.”
