Desus & Mero Brutally Roast Elon Musk’s ‘Richard Spencer’ Hairdo


This past week, world’s richest man Elon Musk debuted a new hairstyle that sits somewhere between Gary Oldman’s Zorg from The Fifth Element and neo-Nazi Richard Spencer.

“Oh, damn! Elon Musk said, ‘Yo, let me go get the Richard Spencer,’” exclaimed Mero on Sunday night’s edition of Desus & Mero.

“The worst part of this?” chimed in Desus. “Grimes saw this and was like, ‘He’s hot.’”
