People have been reacting to the election of Donald Trump in some unusual ways. Of course there were the riots, but unfortunately, those hardly count as unusual anymore. Women in particular have been taking the election results badly, and as New York magazine reported, they’ve even been hitting the salon to have their hair cut and dyed as a political statement.

George Washington University teaching instructor Dr. Kristian Henderson was one of the women featured in that piece, explaining that Trump’s election “felt like an attack on minorities, women, and marginalized people in general,” inspiring her to cut off her long hair, which was her “attempt to fit into society.”

Henderson appeared on Fox News with Tucker Carlson Wednesday evening, giving the world a look at her new ‘do that was only hinted at in print, and it looks … nice. Is it OK to say that?

It’s a good thing she explained the symbolism, because it’s a certainty that a lot of people missed it.

So, if someone compliments your hairdo that was meant to be a political statement, is that a bad thing? A hate misdemeanor? This is confusing. What are Trump supporters supposed to do?

So, is this a trick question?
