The Politics of Mockery & Hair and Biden’s Role Selling the Iran Deal


As the slow build to Election Day 2015 continues, the Summer campaign swings have turned to hair. Republican candidate Donald Trump pulled a stranger up on stage during a campaign appearance this week to prove to the audience that his famous hair is not in fact a toupee. And Democrat Hillary Clinton, who has spent decades in the national spotlight, can relate to the hair scrutiny. She assured voters this week that her hair is real but dyed. And as Vice President Biden considers a third run for the White House, The Washington Post’s Carol Lee explains the VP’s critical role selling the Iran nuclear deal. Biden has served as an emissary to Jewish voters. Plus, Real Clear Politics’ Alexis Simendinger discusses the upcoming visit from Chinese President Xi Jinping to the White House and China’s role in the current economic uncertainty.
