Whichever Way The Wind Blows: Donald Trump To Drive Indy 500 Pace Car

Oh, and for the uninitiated – like myself – allow me to add that the Official Pace Car of the Indianapolis 500 is a convertible which will reach speeds upwards of 140 mph. I mean, can you imagine the kind of whipping and swirling and flopping Donald Trump’s hair will be doing on Sunday, May 29th, when the centennial edition of “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” is held at Indianapolis Motor Speedway? I’m not sure if that mop has the structural integrity to hold up to that kind of wind velocity.

Evidently, it occurred to both reporters  and Trump himself because it turned Рnot surprisingly, I suppose Рinto a topic of conversation at the official announcement that The Donald will be driving the Chevrolet Camaro convertible pace car, which was held Tuesday in the lobby of Trump Tower.

Via TheINDYChannel.com:

Trump said he was honored to have received the invitation and that he does know how to drive.

“It’s a great honor,” Trump said. “I do (have a driver’s license.) I consider it a great luxury to drive.

“Of course, the hair was a key question, especially because the pace car is a convertible that will go up to 140 mph.

“It is my hair, and I don’t really mind,” Trump said. “But I’ll probably wear a hat.”

A hat? Come on, Trump: give the public what it wants: a freakishly enthralling display of unfettered insanity courtesy the sight of your gnarly head of hair whipping about to and fro and up and down at over 100 mph. Now that would be a sight. Better yet, have Larry King ride shotgun with you.

Obviously, the entire hair angle of this story needed to pointed out, but in a way, Trump’s hairdon’t has been kind of played out. Maybe I should have got in touch with The Situation for some Donald Trump-themed zingers.
