During a radio interview Sunday, comedian Jackie Mason weighed in on the controversy surrounding Hillary Clinton’s hair, jesting that the former Secretary of State is hiding her emails under what Mason proclaimed is undoubtedly a wig.
“I have no doubt that it’s a wig,” said Mason. “It looks like a wig and I’m sure it’s a wig. And I knew that sooner or later she would have to get a wig because she had to find a place to hide her emails. It’s under the wig. That’s where it is. There’s no question about it.”
Mason was speaking on the weekend program “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio,” broadcast on New York’s AM 970 The Answer and NewsTalk 990 in Philadelphia.
Clinton’s ever-changing hairstyles did not go unnoticed by the Borscht Belt jokester.
“This woman has had more hairstyles than she has foreign policy achievements,” he said, with Klein laughing in the background.
Mason continued: “She has already had her hair in a hundred different places. You would never think that she only has one head. You would think she has thirty-two heads.”
“Because in the morning her hair is on the left side and you see in the afternoon it’s on the right side. You see the next say it’s very blond, slightly blond. All of the sudden it’s dark hair. All the sudden the hair disappeared altogether. All you see is a head without hair. You don’t know which way the hair is going to go.”
Mason turned to Clinton’s noted pension for pantsuits: “Take a look at these pants outfits that she has. The only thing she has more than hairstyles is pants outfits. Every fifteen minutes a different pants outfit.”
“I don’t know how she has time to do anything. Between her pants and the outfit and the hair and the styles and Bernie Sanders and all these problems she has, you could swear by your life if she becomes the president of this country she will be so busy trying to figure out how to look and what to wear and chasing Bernie Sanders that she’ll have no time to do anything else.”
“Every single day she changes her mind about everything in the world,” Mason said.
“She was for the Canadian pipeline and then all of the sudden Bernie Sanders came out with a higher poll number then she’s against the pipeline. Then she was for the trade agreement. Then Bernie Sanders got another poll number. She’s all of the sudden on the other side of the trade deal.”
“Her policy has nothing to do with the rest of the world. It has only to do with Bernie Sanders. When he moves left she moves further left. If he becomes a communist she becomes a dictator. If he starts killing people she will kill more people. She has to top Bernie Sanders.”
“Thank God she’s topping Bernie Sanders now so she’s calm for a few minutes,” Mason added.
The brouhaha was ignited after Internet giant Matt Drudge of the Drudge Report posted seven tweets suggesting Clinton’s latest hairdo was a wig and then linked to his Twitter account as the lead story on his website.
Donald Trump, who himself has long faced questions about the authenticity of his frock, weighed in during an appearance on Mark Levin’s radio show. Trump referenced Clinton’s “new hairdo,” prompting Levin to comment, “that’s called a wig.” “Is that a wig?” Trump asked. “It really was shocking to see it. You’re right, it must be… It was massive. Her hair became massive.”
However, Clinton’s hairstylist, Santa Nikkels, has called the wig claims “ridiculous,” adding that “she has the most amazing hair in the world.”
