WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump veered heavily off script Thursday night during a rally in Montana after a woman in the audience shouted: "I love your hair!"
The outburst caught the president's attention and he repeated her remarks for the thousands gathered at the Minuteman Aviation Hangar in Missoula, Montana.
"You love my hair?" the president said, smiling and pointing to a woman in the audience. "Thank you. She knows what to say. She knows how to make me happy."
The president then went on a tangent about how since he's become president he's been under a microscope, which has helped prove he does not wear a hairpiece.
He said the windy conditions and tours he took of devastation in Florida after Hurricane Michael and the Carolinas after Hurricane Florence helped his case.
"They used to say 'he wears a hairpiece, he wears a hairpiece.' They don't say that anymore. These people have seen me under every condition known to man," Trump said signaling to the reporters huddled in the venue. "You can't fake it!"
The president then talked about the various interviews he'd done over the years where people had asked to touch his hair to see if it was real.
"It might be one of the best things that's happened to me in a long time because my whole life they said 'is it or isn't it?'"
The president then veered back on script and talked about why those in the room should vote for Republicans over Democrats. Much of his speech in Montana was fixated on his administration's accomplishments and the fight over immigration reform.
