Donald Trump ‘SNL’ Hair Skit Cut From Show, ‘Scalp Team Six’ Released Online
Donald Trump hosted Saturday Night Live last week, and managed to get by without there being any major jokes at the expense of his hair – but that was just because the sketch show was pressed for time.
Donald Trump Hair Sketch
SNL released a cut sketch this week that made Trump’s orange-colored mane the focus. Titled “Scalp Team Six,” the bit saw Navy Seal members – Taran Killam, Cecily Strong, Jay Pharaoh and Bobby Moynihan – deployed to Trump’s hair to keep it in place while he stood for a photo op on a windy day with Russia’s President Putin.
The sketch produced such lines as, “We’re Navy Seals, not Vidal Sassoon!” and “the president’s hair is a symbol of the United States’ power in the world.” When Strong is asked how hair spraying the stray strands is going, she yells in distress, “Not good, this is just medium hold!”
In the end, it’s Killam who steps up. “It’s time for the last resort,” he says, holding up a bomb and explaining his suicide mission. “It’s LA Looks hair gel.”
Strangely enough, it’s not Trump’s hair that has everyone talking this week; it’s Hillary Clinton‘s. And Trump has weighed in on it.
“She has a new hairdo, did you notice that today?” Trump asked CNN’s Mark Levin.
Levin then asked Trump if he, like Matt Drudge, believes the Democratic presidential hopeful has started sporting a wig. “I tell you what it really was shocking to see it because you’re right it must be, it was massive. Her hair became massive. I’ve never seen Hillary with that hairdo so I think that’s an ok thing to say, but it was very different.”
