"Doesn't look bad, we're hanging in"
Donald Trump made reference to his “bald spot” during a speech this week. Scroll below to watch that moment in full.
The US President was speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Maryland when he spotted a live feed of himself on the big screen.
“What a nice picture that is,” Trump stopped to say. “Look at that, I’d love to watch that guy speak.”
He then turned around and patted his hair down, before saying: “I try like hell to hide that bald spot, folks. I work hard at it.”
“Doesn’t look bad,” he added, “we’re hanging in.”
Trump appeared to be making reference to this viral video:
Earlier this week, Trump appeared to blame gun violence in the US on exposure to violent video games and movies, saying that “maybe we need to put a ratings system for that”.
The US President was speaking during a meeting on school safety, which comes after the school shooting in Parkland, Florida last week.
17 people were killed in that attack and the aftermath has seen calls for greater gun control.
Trump said during the meeting: “I’m hearing more and more people saying the level of violence in video games is really shaping young people’s thoughts.”
“And then you go the further step, and that’s the movies. You see these movies, and they’re so violent. A kid is able to see the movie if sex isn’t involved, but killing is involved, and maybe we need to put a ratings system for that.”
Many have pointed out that the US do actually have rating systems for both movies and video games, provided by the MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) and ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board).
