    The World Wide Web is absolutely fascinated by the American 2016 Presidential candidate Donald Trump; the new hashtag #TrumpYourCat features photos of pets parading fuzzy hair clumps following the property tycoon's own follically deranged fashion.

    Where most politicians sport rather conservative and dull haircuts, 'The Donald' stands out from the crowd with his peculiarly coiffured concoction, much beloved by the Internet masses.

    A new Instagram and Twitter flashmob was recently launched, emulating his bizarre comb-over and inspiring many people to begin what they call “Trumping” their pets.

    It entails using a ball of your pet’s discarded fur from its latest grooming session and cunningly crafting it into a feline comb-over.

    The trend has taken the media by storm. For example, Time magazine tweeted the ultimate guide on “how to get hair like Donald Trump”.

    The Guardian offered their own “emergency hair advice”: “bleach it, cut it or get a wig”.

    However four years ago, in an effort to defuse the mystery surrounding his enigmatic head foliage, the politician already gave a detailed account of how he does his hair:

    “I wash it with Head and Shoulders. I don't dry it, though. I let it dry by itself. It takes about an hour. Then I read papers and things,” he then told Rolling Stone magazine.

    “I then comb my hair. Yes, I do use a comb."

    "Do I comb it forward? No, I don't comb it forward."

    "I actually don't have a bad hairline. When you think about it, it's not bad. I mean, I get a lot of credit for comb-overs. But it's not really a comb-over. It's sort of a little bit forward and back. I've combed it the same way for years. Same thing, every time."
