I’ve been telling you Murphy is running for president. Now his hair says the same (Opinion)
Long before most people knew who he was, I told you Phil Murphy is going to run for governor of New Jersey. He started building a coalition of support and social infrastructure with his massive wealth, just like his former co-worker at Goldman Sachs, John Corzine did, a decade earlier.
Then seemingly out of nowhere he emerged as a candidate for governor and bought the office fair and square.
Then after he was elected, I told you that being New Jersey governor was just a stepping stone and practice for his eventual goal of running for president.
He hasn't announced it yet, but his hair is certainly screaming it from the top of his head.
For years he sported a serious widow's peak, short, older man's hairstyle. Suddenly we have a fresh new look with more hair and a younger feel. Maybe he just wanted to look more stylish for his trips to his multi-million-dollar villa in Italy.
No one else has really bought into the theory of him running for president, but now that the hairstyle has changed others are putting it together. It doesn't take a psychic to predict what's going on. He's been planning this for years. Murphy is a power-hungry, quietly ruthless, guilty white progressive with a burning ambition to get to the top.
He played his cards right at Goldman Sachs and made a fortune. After you make that much money, true power is the only logical next step for a guy like Murphy.
I'm not a betting person, but I'm willing to wager: if he doesn't announce he's running for president in the next year, I will shave my head. I look pretty bad with what little hair I have, but I look hideous with no hair.
I've been right about this character before, and this time is no different. Tell my barber not to worry, my hair isn't going anywhere.
