3. Pretty much my thought scary

My 57 year old husband is gently balding.... he has more hair than this. And at their age? 40ish? Wouldnít dream of shaving his head.

Itís just off.

2. White Power signal

It's a "thing"....
I call it the " Bald headed hair club for men".

But as usual just a bunch of racists.

8. Did he just say..."we have skin[heads] in the game?" lol.



What the hell was that "do you want me to come in the front door...or come in the window?" WTF was that.

These guys are such a joke. They read their cue cards like contestants on the apprentice.

We were just hanging around in the oval office rummaging through our hate message and I decided to drag them out in front of the press to put them up against Ms. Nancy.

And I hear the raging hordes are back banging on the southern border. Just WTF-ity F'ck is he going on about....

Such an asshat.

9. Not to disagree with the theories above...

...but other possibilities include:
In a physical scuffle, nobody can grab your hair if you don't have any;
In-crowd chic;
Solidarity with a colleague who went through chemo.

Nothing mutually exclusive about any of the possibilities.

10. Q ball vs cueball

take your pick:
QAnon
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Q Anon[a] (/kjuːəˈnɒn/) is a far-right conspiracy theory[2] detailing a supposed secret conspiracy by an alleged "deep state" against U.S. President Donald Trump and his supporters

OR:
cue ball
/ˈ kyo͞o ˌbŰl/
noun
noun: cue ball; plural noun: cue balls; noun: cueball; plural noun: cueballs

the ball, usually a white one, that is to be struck with the cue in pool, billiards, snooker, etc.

11. Why do you think all ICE guys are bald?

Google ICE Agents Images -- there are some that are bald and some that aren't. Probably more of the latter.

As for the idea that because they're bald they must be skinheads -- well, several members of Obama's Secret Service detail were bald and I don't recall folks thinking that they must be skinheads.

Silly OP.

12. Did I say all ICE guys are bald? I don't think I did

It was an observation based on a snapshot from trumps speech...tempered with a comment that I donít noemally comment on superficial looks.

But go ahead and say that I said all ICE agents are bald.

19. So the OP finds it weird that some ICE agents are completely bald

While others are only partially bald and others aren't bald at all.

Doesn't seem weird to me, but to each his own I guess.

14. Trump demanded that he have the best hair on the stage.

It's much like Stalin, who was 5-5 but insisted on being photographed with people shorter than he was so it would make him appear taller.

20. I walked by the TV and there was tRump with 4 shaved head dudes.

The sound wasn't on so I didn't know who they were. I just thought tRump wanted to have the "best" hair.

21. I assume you are talking about this?




Hee....they look like skinheads...


I don't know how many ICE/CBP agents there are in the country. So is this a representative sample?
ICE tends to work as "deportation police". I'm pretty sure some of them work undercover, so they might not all be bald.
I don't know why these guys were selected to be on stage with Trump.

25. Speaking as a guy who has been balding since I was 25...there is a difference between

being bald and shaving your head.

These guys are likely drawn to the fashion statement made by the military barber and the German Nazis from the 30's and 40's. They want to project themselves as hard fighting warrior types and think their haircut will instill fear in the hearts of their opponents.

To me, they look like a bunch of skinheads who lost their way back to the militia's training site somewhere in northern Michigan.

27. When I joined the army in 1985

bald heads were considered extreme.

AR 670-1:

"Extreme, eccentric, or trendy haircuts or hairstyles are not authorized." [link:http://ar670.com/articles/view/1/hair-and-fingernail-standards-and-grooming-policies/8|]

Today's soldiers often have bald heads. I personnally think it is a conservative thing.

33. Easy Hoss/Hossette . . . . . I know more than a few men, me included, with that head style.

The men I know, like me, with shaved heads, are liberals.

I shave my head because it is far easier than getting haircuts.

I shave my head as a style choice.

I shave my head as a fake-out. For some reason, people equate shaved heads and right wing. One does not follow the other. But what's cool when the error in assumption is made, I find out really quick who the assholes are.
