Former U.S. President and Lord of Texas George W. Bush is in the news today after a video of him, and his LeBron-esque hairline, made the internet rounds. It appears that Bush, 69, is feeling the negative effects of growing old. His luscious locks are no more and his hairline is going to shit, as evidenced in the Vine below:
It could just be an optical illusion. I mean, in May, Bush gave an amazing commencement speech in Moody Coliseum at SMU. It didn’t look like the former Prez was having any major hairline problems then:
It’s a sad day when a man loses his hair. Nothing tears at a man’s confidence like prematurely going bald — just ask LeBron James. I remember finding out my bald high school assistant principal was only 34 during my senior year. We all assumed he was pushing 50. It suddenly made sense why he was so bitter all the time. I’d say going bald before 40 is one of the cruelest tricks this world can pull on a man. It’s one of those things a guy just can’t recover from. Going bald after 40 is meh. Who cares? If things aren’t good for you by then, they never will be.
Bush isn’t prematurely going bald, though. He and his hair lived a good life together. Also, once you’ve been President, little things like appearance don’t matter as much anymore. Bush is living the life in Dallas right now. Painting, golfing, hitting up his ranch on the weekends and probably shmoozing it up with the Dallas elite.
The media can make fun of him all it wants. He probably doesn’t give a shit. I wouldn’t either. I’m excited for a new era of bald GWB. I bet he’ll be even more fun without hair..
