TSA investigators are looking into the leaking of a scatter X-ray image of Donald Trump with potentially damaging consequences for the presidential candidate: The image shows a microcephalic male skull purportedly of The Don while traveling through an as yet unidentified east coast airport TSA checkpoint. An unofficial source close to the investigation confirmed that the image was produced by the same equipment common at many TSA checkpoints, "The image contained clear identifiers from the Minolta Narcoscan 650i it was captured on. The other image and possible location identifiers were removed, probably by the leaker," the source said.
Another disturbing aspect of the image is that it shows two skulls. This reporter asked Kandra Mann, head of radiology at UNM in Albuquerque NM, to review the x-ray image and we also asked her to determine if it may help corroborate previous reporting on an incident in which a second head emerged from Trump's Jacket and started shouting during a press briefing in NH. Without addressing the merits of our previous story, she stated "I can only say this: the likelihood of having two heads both with microcephaly is extremely remote." Mann went on to say, "While both skulls show clear signs of diminished development, I can only speculate that the presence of the second skull is an artifact of the individual TSA scanning device or software associated with it."
All this of course raises the question of why the condition wasn't visible in Trump's earlier years when he had "normal" hair. "It's possible," Mann said, "being from a wealthy family he was able to hide it, you can do a lot with makeup and fillers. The hairstyle may have evolved as a way of dealing with his microcephalic appearance in his later years, and it's certainly less painful and intrusive than the fillers."
While Trump's second head remains hidden from voters for now, it's future revelation and even the current reports on his microcephaly may not turn off his supporters who have already shrugged off a tidal wave of Trump's exaggerations and multiple disconnects with reality. Nor will voters who were against Trump all along now sympathize with and vote for him.
To prove the above point we spoke to people who were both for and against Trump about the charge that his hair is hiding microcephalic architecture.
Typical of both liberal and conservative voters who have been against a Trump candidacy, was Rob Lewn of Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Talking to us at a local coffee and bait shop, the forty-five year old Lewn said he wasn't planning on voting for Trump and is, "even more set against" the candidate now. Lewn didn't seem too surprised about the microcephaly, "I always thought his hair was like a helmet that hides or protects something, I'll bet it could stop a sword." Lewn laughed and punctuated his assertion with a playful crisscross motion of his arm.
Amidst the smells of shoe leather and rubberized outdoor gear in a Colorado Springs army surplus store, we spoke to Angelita Degett of Colorado City, CO. Thirty-two years old, a mother of two school age children and an ardent Trump supporter, Degett at least knew what microcephaly was. Her response was much like other Trump supporters who didn't believe the story:
"Well the media has it out for him, so they are just making stuff up about a man who's the real deal, and doesn't have to make anything up."
Without seeing any irony in her previous statement, Angelita continued, "Look, Don Trump is really rich because he's really smart, he has a huge brain, so if his hair is hiding anything he has a macrocephaly, if there is such a thing."
Indeed, if macrocephaly is being big headed like an egomaniac, well then Ms. Degett is on to something.
Several national organizations for the developmentally disabled have already reached out to The Don in hopes of securing donations and perhaps even The Don himself to lend his celebrity to their causes.
