(Newser) – Well, well, well. It looks like the ridiculous hairdo is on the other head. In the wake of Trump proposing a ban on Muslims entering the US, two US mayors have expressed interest in doing the same to Trump. "I am hereby barring Donald Trump from entering St. Petersburg until we fully understand the dangerous threat posed by all Trumps," Mayor Rick Kriseman tweeted Monday from St. Petersburg, Florida. Kriseman tells the Tampa Bay Times he doesn't plan on actually keeping Trump out of the city, "but his statement was kind of ridiculous, so I thought that it deserved an equal response." Meanwhile, Mayor Michael Nutter tells NBC Philadelphia it's too bad he doesn't have the power to ban Trump from the city of brotherly love, which he says doesn't have "any room for that kind of stupidity."
