The Coiffure Test for Trump Partisanship

The old saws that "you can't tell a book by its cover" or "you can't tell a dude by his duds" have only a certain degree of truth to them. Both are warnings against hasty decision making.

On the other hand, with the availability of t-shirts with slogans on them, you might make headway some of the time. Still, there's the simile of a trout struggling upstream that comes to mind.  

But is there any easy-peasy way of judging Trump supporters? 

If you care, it's in their hair. In a limited way.

Specifically, if he's sporting a mullet, he's likely to be a Trump supporter. Or, she's got big hair, she's likely to be a Trumpette.

Of course, there are the Trump supporters who pass for normal by getting mainstream 'dos. But mullets are so Trumpian; maybe Rudy Giuliani should get one.


  1. I think a mullet would fit Rudy just fine.

  2. A couple of years ago, my wife was in a styling salon and a dad brought his young son in for a mullet. The owner said they didn't do mullets. When the dad asked why not, he said because someone would ask where he got that hideous hair cut and he didn't want his shop associated with it!
