Weren’t the pictures of Rudy Giuliani’s hair malfunction last week wonderful? I was transfixed by footage of him bug-eyed and ranting at a press conference, as dark rivulets of hair dye (or mascara, expert opinion was divided) ran down his sweaty cheeks.

The incident spawned a delighted outpouring of comment and mocking tweets.

He was a Scooby-Doo villain unmasked; a gargoyle, a comic-book grotesque, and it felt so apt.

For critics, it was as if corruption, lies and moral turpitude were finally oozing out of him as a tarry discharge.

It is the same satisfaction we feel as we dissect the brittle spun-sugar edifice of Trump’s hair, the harshly theatrical lines of his makeup (“una naranja espantosa”, a scary orange, as a White House housekeeper described it to the Washington Post) or his cack-handed panda-eye concealer habit.

It is delicious when the facade cracks, especially in one so obsessed with surface.
