Trump's pants are on backwards
Posted by: Ombligo

Trump apparently wore his pants backward while speaking in front of the Republican party in North Carolina on Saturday. Of course, his pants may have just peen elastic-waisted pullups. Either way, further signs of mental incompetence [as if we needed further proof of that]

.....Corey Lewandowski once said that Trump made him and others steam his pants.....he said Trump made Hope Hicks steam his pants while he had them on......and once berated her for not bringing the steamer.....

He's obsessed with keeping his suits immaculate.

Going out on stage with wrinkles like that is a significant sign of decrepitude.




...Of course, many would recall an account in the 2016 book by Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie in which they claimed Trump made White House communications director Hope Hicks steam his pants while he wore them. “Get the machine!” Trump would reportedly shout. “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.”

He is definitely used to being the uber boss.

This is another case of trump derangement syndrome - I suffer from it badly, so I can see it in others... did anyone ask how does a mentally deranged person puts pants on backwards - it would be really hard to do even if you aren't deranged. Did he ask someone to get the zipper in the back for him?

Here's a pic that seems to show a perfectly normal pair of pants:

Maybe he wet them before going on stage and had to do a quick switch around
OR
Maybe his ginormous "ego" was Photoshopped out, much like the girls in that yearbook we heard about.

That's fine, but they give no explanation for the appearance of the photo we're seeing above. Was it Photoshopped?

And even if there was a zipper in front, the fit looks terrible ... for someone who, by all accounts described above, prided himself on not having any wrinkles in his outfits.

3 seconds with a blur tool in MS Paint and tada! no fly on that potato quality original. 4K or go home in this day of deep fakes.

There are a series of vertical creases around his waist that obscure the fly-flap in shadow from the right angle.

Nope, I believed Snopes. I just wanted confirmation that someone had Photoshopped the video, not merely the picture.

And Bill in NC is right, independent of the apparent Photoshopping, the pants don't seem to fit well at least in part because Dump has gained yet more weight.

Which would have been more of a sign of incontinence than incompetence.

As has been pointed out before, there's no way Trump could have performed the gymnastics required to zip backward pants and then put on a belt. I do think that, even with the clear video to look at, the Adult Diaper story still seems likely to me. Just not underneath backward pants.

Trump or a Trumper said his clothes were kept "immaculate." About a third of the time he looks like he slept in them.

I'm sorry, but when you're an orange-colored buffoon, who has directly or indirectly caused the deaths of at least 350K+ Americans, when in fact you're supposed to be the leader of the U.S. and the free world, and protecting all of us... you deserve our scorn and ridicule. Even for the smallest of things... after all, the other side has no problems making up complete falsehoods about our candidates, and telling outright lies about elections and pandemic deaths.

I disagree big time. imo, concentrating on pure BS details like 'is Trump's pants on backward???!!!' makes us all (on the left) look like buffoons. Even when presented with evidence that the whole thing was a crock, people come back with, 'well but his pants look like crap'. Who cares? This is is of absolutely no importance.

I find it embarrassing. This is the kind of BS that foxnews does every day - I like to think that we (on the left) are better than that. And the idea that THEY do it so why shouldn't we... well - because we're better than them. We should show it...

The problem with "sticking it to them with the facts" is that-- as we've all seen-- they simply don't care. While I agree with you that it'd be preferable to take the high ground, what we've seen with the elections recently is that you're dealing with liars and cheaters, and trying to deal with such individuals at face value isn't likely to work.

And there's nothing preventing us from taking BOTH the high ground and the low ground. I think any opportunity to shame or embarrass Orange Dump is worth taking. grinning smiley

I've always thought he tended to look frumpy, but to say that specifically, seems more like just another cheap shot.

Agreed, though in posting my thought, I'm part of the problem, not the solution.

Ehhh, lighten up. We're having fun at Dump's expense. I see it as no different from our commenting about the size of his hands, his trouble making his way down a ramp, his "walk of shame" after a rally, etc. As a former POTUS, his sartorial choices are as much up for grabs as the behavior for any other former POTUS. Compare him to, for example, Carter, who has become noteworthy as an ex-POTUS for doing lots of good deeds after he left office. Instead, we have an orange blob who is becoming known as a national embarrassment, likely a criminal one.

I agree with all of the above.

There's no small irony in seeing posters here complain about the Red-Hatted League making what they they think are mountains out of molehills about perceived or real faux pas on the part of the Blue Haired, only to turn around and do the same thing.

A few are actually funny because they're clever, but most just succeed in making one 'side' look as bad as the other'.

It gets old, quick.
