Just laugh anyway because it’s fun.
Donald Trump is nowhere near the brightest bulb in the box so a story like this would come as absolutely no surprise if it were true. However, as Charlamagne Tha God is fond of saying, “nobody cares about the truth when the lie is more entertaining”.
Yesterday, the following viral video had the internet goin’ nuts in a way that Paul Wall would approve of.
It was rumored that 55% of white women’s president gave a speech at the North Carolina GOP convention where it appeared that he had put on his pants backward and proceeded through his day as if nothing were wrong. Many pointed out that the “front ” of the orange insurrectionist’s pants looked EXTREMELY wrinkled. Significantly more than what’s reasonable.
According to the fact-checking website Snopes, this hilarious rumor isn’t true but for the purposes of our own continued entertainment, we will disregard their clarification entirely and laugh regardless because his pants look backward as hell.
Of course, the internet had jokes ready for the former Cheeto in chief about his fashion faux pas. One user on Twitter wrote,
“I would like to see the expression on Trump’s face when his people tell him that the most popular response to his speech was amusement at his bunched, wrinkled pants,” while another social media goer chimed in, “I had to see what the hype was with Trump’s pants last night and I was not disappointed. Make wrinkled palazzo pants great again.”
Some folks recalled a story that one of Trump’s former aides revealed in a 2017 tell-all book where they claimed former White House communications director Hope Hicks was responsible for steaming Trump’s soggy trousers back in the day. To make matters even worse, the story alleges that Hicks often had to steam 45’s pants while he was wearing them.
Here’s an expert from the book:
“‘Get the machine!’ And Hope would take out the steamer and start steaming Mr. Trump’s suit, while he was wearing it! She’d steam the jacket first and then sit in a chair in front of him and steam his pants.”
We’re not sure if the video online was doctored or just more difficult to see but in the official Getty Image photos, you can clearly see the zipper in the front. However, that doesn’t begin to explain these insane wrinkles. He looks like a burnt sienna sharpie.
Now, you gonna believe photographs or your sense of humor?
