That was hairy - Paris wax museum plays catchup with Trump dummy
A Paris wax museum unveiled a Donald Trump effigy with real human hair on Thursday, having being caught off guard with a half-ready figure of Hillary Clinton when he won the U.S. presidential election in November.

The museum was so certain that Clinton would win the November election that it decided to forgo the trouble of sculpting statues for both candidates.
