*Trump gave his first public press conference in eight days on Friday
*The Commander-in-chief, 74, appeared to have stopped dying his hair as he
sported natural looking silvery-white locks
*Hundreds of viewers took to Twitter during the press conference to deliver
their best quips about the President's bold new look
President Trump has held his first press conference since his election loss to
Joe Biden, providing the public with an update on a COVID-19 vaccine.
And while Americans were eager to hear news about the potentially life-changing
treatment, it was the Commander-in-chief's drastically different appearance that
caused the most commotion on social media.
Hundreds of viewers took to Twitter during the briefing - which was held in the
White House Rose Garden on Friday afternoon - to remark that the 74-year-old's
hair had gone completely gray since he was last seen in public more than a week
'I know this isn't important but Trump finally stopped coloring his hair,' one
wrote, sharing a photo of the President from the press conference side-by-side
with an image that was taken nine days ago.
The tweet prompted a flurry of mocking replies, with many attempting to deliver
their best quips about Trump's silvery-white locks.
'His hair colourist has covid?' one mused.
'It appears Donald Trump's hair dye has conceded,' another joked.
A third person chimed in that his locks may have turned gray because 'it's
stressful trying to overthrow a democracy'.
As Trump touted Operation Warp Speed - his publicprivate partnership to
accelerate the development and distribution of a coronavirus vaccine - another
viewer wittily replied: 'Looks like Trump's hair went gray with Warp Speed.'
Meanwhile, others on social media claimed Trump's decision to stop dying his
locks may have been a deliberate ploy for sympathy following his election loss.
'He thinks we'll feel sorry for him, a heartbroken and defeated old man...' one
However, there were dozens of others who said that Trump's new silvery tresses
made him look more Presidential - an ironic fact as he is now set to be booted
from the White House after four years.
There were also many also praised the Commander-in-chief's new look - including
those some on the left.
'Noticed Trumps letting his hair go natural gray/white. Looks good. Better than
the blonde. That's all,' one Twitter used posted.
Another popular tweet read: 'I hate to say this but he looks much better gray'.
