Quote of the Day: Donald Trump Rants About Hairspray

Nonsensical rambling from Donald Trump is pretty much par for the course now. Part of the issue is likely that he’s completely ignorant when it comes to virtually all political issues, whether it’s the economy, abortion, national defense, foreign policy, or immigration. The man not only has no clue about how anything in this country works, he doesn’t care. He hasn’t bothered to educate himself yet, and in all likelihood, he isn’t going to. So that’s one explanation for his crazy ramblings — he has to talk in circles because he doesn’t know what he’s talking about. The other part could be that, well, he’s just crazy. Consider this insanity when he tried to explain his abortion stance, or how he answered a foreign policy question by talking about how big his penis is. (But remember, The Donald has all the best words.)

Well, the literary genius held a rally for coal miners in West Virginia, his first as the presumptive GOP nominee. He started out with a ridiculous humblebrag, saying how sad he was that the primaries were over, because they were so much fun for him. Of course, there’s also that pesky fact that he’s about to lose miserably in the general, which could be why he’s already missing primary season. After talking about how the West Virginia Coal Association — whose name he couldn’t remember — and about how crooked Hillary is, things got… weird. Some coal miners greeted him at the podium with a coal mining helmet, which he wore while pantomiming mining coal as the crowd cheered. Then, he decided to give us his random thoughts about the most pressing issue our nation currently faces: hairspray.


That is great. My hair look OK? I got a little spray. Give me a little spray. You know you’re not allowed to use hairspray anymore because it affects the ozone. You know that, right? I said, ‘You mean to tell me’ — because you know, hairspray’s not like it used to be. It used to be real good. When I put on that helmet — and by the way, look [pats own hair] it really is mine, right? Lookit. My hair. Give me a mirror. But no, in the old days, ya put the hairspray on, it was good. Today, ya put the hairspray on and it’s good for twelve minutes, right? But, you know, they say you can’t — I said, ‘Wait a minute, so if I take hairspray and I spray it in my apartment which is all sealed, you’re telling me that affects the ozone layer?’ Yes? I say no way folks. No way.

So apparently, we can add science to the list of things that Donald Trump knows absolutely nothing about, yet can still prattle on incoherently all the same. (For those interested, there’s an explanation of why Trump is wrong about hairspray and the ozone layer here.)

Aside from Trump, once again, talking about something he has no understanding of whatsoever, there’s the fact that he even chose to talk about hairspray at all. And it wasn’t just hairspray. He had to defend his own physical appearance, too. What is up with the hypersensitivity regarding his appearance? The man has lost his mind over people making fun of his stubby little fingers. He has to brag about his hair, which is odd, considering it’s… well, terrible. What is he going to tackle next? Defending the spray tan salon he and John Boehner love to frequent in order to achieve the perfect shade of orange?

Here’s a question, Donald: what in the world does your hair have to do with being president? Or how hairspray uses HCFCs now instead of CFCs? Why is this relevant to anything?

People, this actually how a man running for president of the most powerful country in the world talks. When he’s not being obnoxious and lobbing sexist insults at women, or creating childish taunts to use against his opponents, he’s being a blithering idiot. It’s humiliating. No wonder states that were solidly red are becoming swing states. No wonder he’s the most disliked political candidate ever. He’s a loud-mouthed bully who openly admires dictators, flirts with white supremacists and the KKK, wants to trample all over the Constitution, is freakishly orange with terrible hair and tiny little fingers, advocates violence against people who disagree with him, is seemingly completely unintelligent, and has an over-inflated ego to boot. The reality TV generation has given us this joke of a candidate, and now we have to live with it.

This is going to be one painful election season.

    Apparently he hasn’t considered the possibility that his hair spray isn’t working so well because he has less hair than he once did.
