AceShowbiz - Donald Trump has once again caught attention for a potentially embarrassing reason. The former president made an appearance at a Republican rally in North Carolina on Saturday, June 5, during which he delivered a speech, but it's his outfit that drew most comments on social media.
After pictures and videos of the 74-year-old at the event hit the web, many were puzzled over his pants, which appeared to have no zipper. This prompted people to speculate that he wore his pants backwards and Twitter has since erupted with savage comments on it.
"Others are noting this, but it can't be shared enough: Donald Trump gave his big speech today with his pants on backwards," New York Daily News contributor Brandon Friedman wrote along with a clip of Trump moving away from the podium, exposing his pants. "Look close and tell me I'm wrong."
Many compared Trump's outfit to '90s hip-hop duo Kris Kross' eccentric style. "Kris Kross will make ya, Trump Trump.I hate myself.#TrumpSpeech," one noted. Another commented, "Want to feel old? This is what Kris Kross looks like today." A fourth person joked, "Kriss Kross & DaddyMac were ahead of their time."
Another user quipped, "No fly on Trump's pants? I think I know where it went," referring to the fly that landed on Mike Pence's head during the Vice Presidential debate. Someone jested, "Just like everybody else he puts his pants on, no legs at a time."
"Just incredible that at no point did he go 'huh something's a little off here' as he zipped himself up on the a**," another trolled Trump, while an amused user simply tweeted, "I can't stop laughing..."
As for Trump's speech at the rally, he doubled down on his controversial remark that China is responsible for the COVID-19 outbreak. He said China should pay reparations to the world. He also defended Russian president Vladimir Putin, asked for credit for the vaccine and falsely claimed that he won the 2020 election.
