GREENVILLE, S.C. — During a campaign speech in South Carolina on Thursday, presidential candidate, Donald Trump invited one of his supporters onto the stage to touch his hair and prove that it’s real.

Trump’s rant was prompted by a New York Times article that discussed the Spanish-language media’s hostility toward him.
The article quotes Ricardo Sánchez, who hosts a Spanish radio show, calling Trump, “El hombre del peluquín” — meaning the man of the toupee.
“I don’t wear a toupee. It’s my hair! I swear!” he said.
Trump responded to the notion by inviting a supporter on stage to touch his hair.
“Come here. Come here. We’re going to settle this,” he said in the video. “You have to do an inspection here. This is getting crazy. This is crazy. Just real quick; we don’t want to mess it up too much because I do use hairspray.”
The woman touched his hair and said it was indeed real.
This isn’t the first time he’s invited someone to touch his hair either. Trump tried to tell people his hair is real at a lunchtime address at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. back in 2014.
But, the idea of Trump wearing a toupee doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. Since his campaign for president began, a line of kitty toupees even came out.
