Video of strong winds exposing President Trump's scalp sends internet into a tailspin

A video of President Donald Trump's hair getting violently blown by a gust of wind as he boards Air Force One is currently making the rounds online.

The footage, which was shot on Feb. 2, shows Trump ascending the stairs to the aircraft at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland on a particularly windy day.

A cameraman filming the departure happened to catch the exact moment a strong gust lifted up a flap of the president's hair, revealing his scalp and what appears to be a rather bizarre hair pattern.  

HuffPost's Ashley Feinberg shared a series of tweets about the original YouTube video, which quickly went viral and caused widespread speculation.

The authenticity of Donald Trump's hair has been a hot topic of debate for many years — and he certainly has not shied away from sharing his two cents on the matter.

In his 2005 book "Trump: How to Get Rich," Trump has a chapter called "The Art of the Hair," where he states, "For the record, I do not wear a rug. My hair is one hundred percent mine."
