Sunday 29 May 2022 04:37 AM 'Is it getting a little thin? I don't like that!' Donald Trump jokes about his ... trends now
Trump, 75, was lapping up applause from a campaign rally crowd in Casper when he caught sight of himself on a big screen.
The 45th president asked the crowd: 'Excuse me, these massive screens that we paid a fortune for, I'm just looking at the back of my head. Is it getting a little thin?'
He continued saying: 'I'm not happy, I don't like that.'

When Trump noticed the big screen behind him he began to stare and gesture to his hair
That's when Trump asked the audience if they felt too that his hair was thinning.
This is the second time in a little over a month that hair has been an issue at a Trump rally.
In April, Trump described President Joe Biden's former press secretary Jen Psaki as: 'The woman with the really beautiful red hair.'
At a rally in Michigan, Trump continued on by saying that MSNBC hired Psaki because the network needed a redhead on air.
He said: 'You know she's going to MSDNC. They need a redhead. They don't have a redhead over there, so they need a redhead.'
Trump refers to the network as MSDNC to highlight its liberal bias, which he says strongly favors Democrats.

It has been a difficult few months for Trump's thatch, which is said to have been the result of painful scalp reduction surgery carried out while he was wed to his first wife Ivana.
Ivana's then-surgeon Dr Steven Hoefflin allegedly carried out the operation, which saw Trump's bald spot cut from his scalp, before the surrounding skin was pulled tightly together to close the gap, before being stitched back up.
In December 2021, the Washington Post reported that Trump's final chief of staff, Mark Meadows, mocked the then-president's hair.
This left Trump 'particularly upset' at Meadows, according to the Post. The incident occurred while the president was sick with Covid-19 and had spent hours in bed.
A few months earlier Melania Trump's former chief of staff, Stephanie Grisham, revealed her memoir that the president used a 'huge pair of scissors that could probably cut a ribbon at an opening of his properties' to cut his hair.
Donald Trump takes stage at the Ford Wyoming Center in Casper, Wyoming on Saturday to rally against Representative Liz Cheney and for her rival Harriet Hageman
During the rally in Casper, Trump issued on Saturday his most staunch opposition of an incumbent Republican lawmaker yet as he rallied against 'Pelosi's lapdog' Liz Cheney in Casper, Wyoming as he flashed an image of her face mashed up with George W. Bush.
'Wyoming thought you were electing a conservative warrior, but instead you got a lapdog for Pelosi and a human sound bite machine for CNN and MSDNC,' Trump said, using his mashup of the liberal network MSNBC and the DNC (Democratic National Committee).
'Liz Cheney hates the voters of the Republican Party and she has for longer than you know. Wyoming deserves a congresswoman who stands up for you and your values not one who spends all of her time putting you down and going after you president in the most vicious way possible,' the former president told thousands of supporters gathered in Casper on Saturday afternoon. '
He added that the three-term congresswoman is 'the face of the Washington swamp and the same failed foreign policy of the Clintons, Bushs, the Obamas, the Bidens, and the entire sick political establishment.'
He then put up on the jumbotron at the front of the Ford Wyoming Center an image of Cheney's hair and face mashed up with an image of former President George W. Bush.
'I think she looks good, looks nice,' Trump jested. 'But Liz Cheney is about America last.'
Trump visited Casper, Wyoming nearly three months before the Wyoming GOP primary on August 16, 2022 where the candidate he endorsed – Harriet Hageman – is the favorite to win.
Hageman received several standing ovations in her remarks ahead of Trump taking stage.
Her simple message: Wyoming is 'fed up' with Cheney and other congressional RINOs, which Trump uses degradingly to refer to those he claims are Republicans In Name Only, but who do not represent real ideals of the Party.
Trump said toward the top of his nearly hour and a half remarks that RINOs are worse than Democrats.

The former president told Wyoming voters to 'fire Liz' from Congress. 'Wyoming thought you were electing a conservative warrior, but instead you got a lapdog for Pelosi and a human sound bite machine for CNN and MSDNC,' Trump lamented
As a throwback to his famous line from his days as a judge on reality television show The Apprentice, Trump told Wyoming residents at the Saturday rally that they need 'fire' Cheney.
'Because of what Liz Cheney did, that's why she was thrown out of the House Republican leadership, which is just about a first. It's why she was censured by the Republican National Committee, which is so lame – that virtually never happens,' he said. 'It's why she was censured by the Wyoming GOP. We have [Frank Eathorne Jr.] here, I'll introduce him, but I'm very proud of Frank.'
'And that's why in two months from now, the people of Wyoming are going to tell her Liz you're fired get out.'
This comment sparked potentially the loudest applause of the night.
After voting for Trump's impeachment, joining the January 6 select committee probing the Capitol attack and speaking out repeatedly against the former president, Cheney faced swift fallout from the GOP.
Trump lamented that he has been investigated more than notorious mobsters and criminals.
'Now you look at the so-called word 'insurrection.' January 6, what a lot of crap. And most of this country knows it, and you know who else knows it, the Democrats. It's another con job just like Russia, Russia, Russia. This was made up by Hillary Clinton and the Democrats. A total fake story. And they have another fake story coming, the insur-and many others,' Trump said.
'Don't forget,' he cautioned, 'I've been investigated more than Billy the Kid, Jesse James, and the great legendary mobster Alphonse Capone- did anyone ever hear of him? Al Capone.'
'If you add them all up and double 'em and triple 'em I've taken the cake for investigations,' Trump claimed. 'Friend of mine said you know this has been going on for years - you must be the most honest man in the history of our country.'
Firebrand Colorado Republican Representative Lauren Boebert received a warm welcome from the crowed in Wyoming as she took stage to help tee up Trump.
The congresswoman bragged about being a 'RINO hunter' when talking about Cheney., but left her name out when telling the crowd that the establishment conservative need to be 'taken
