Hair Force One: Trump admits struggle to hide his bald spot.

US President Donald Trump speaks about his hair during the 2018 Conservative Political Action Conference at National Harbor in Oxon Hill, Maryland on Friday.

President Donald Trump has confirmed Washington's worst-kept secret: He's balding under his wispy blond helmet of hair. After a raucous reception from the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday at a resort outside Washington, the right-wing populist pointed at his face on a video screen, calling it "a nice picture." As the approving audience roared, Trump seemed to focus on his scalp, waving his hand over the back of his head while staring at the screen. "Oh, boy," the 71-year-old sighed, with an air of resignation. Trump feigned primping his hair, then shrugged to the audience. "I try like hell to hide that bald spot, folks. I work hard at it," he said. "Doesn't look bad, hey, we're hanging in. We're hanging in, we're hanging in there, right? Together, we're hanging in." The signature hair style worn for decades by the New York real estate tycoon and former television star was already the subject of ridicule long before he won the 2016 election as a political novice. Trump's confession on Friday followed his February 2 bad hair day, when he was boarding Air Force One in swirling winds, exposing a large patch of nearly bare scalp on the back of his head and flooding social media with photos and videos. Medical records disclosed last month by Trump's White House doctor noted a 1-milligram daily dose of Propecia, a drug to combat male-pattern baldness.
