It seemed like looking at Donald Trump’s fashion choices was a thing of the past, but once again his crotch has been thrust into the public’s imagination. On Saturday, Trump attended the GOP convention in North Carolina, giving a speech to his rabid fanbase. After giving his first remarks, the former president stepped away from the podium and kept lingering on stage in his infamous slumped-over posture, like someone is operating him like a puppet from behind.

That’s where people noticed a strange…frontispiece. Trump’s front butt was in full display.

“Others are noting this, but it can’t be shared enough: Donald Trump gave his big speech today with his pants on backward. Look close and tell me I’m wrong,” Twitter user @BFriedmanDC said.

The smooth dome shape of his pants had some people thinking he didn’t even have a zipper. It’s easy to imagine that Trump could put his pants on backward, except I’m pretty sure that someone dresses him in the morning and that would be a firing offense.

That didn’t stop people from conjecturing that he was pulling a President Skroob from Spaceballs, a la Mel Brooks:

Others wondered again if he was perhaps wearing a diaper, which is not nearly as funny. It’s actually a bit sad, I think.

There is no proof that any of these conjectures are correct and even Snopes has rated the claim as “false,” noting a photograph taken by Melissa Sue Gerrits, captioned:

Former U.S. President Donald Trump listens to Ted Budd announce he’s running for the NC Senate at the NCGOP state convention on June 5, 2021, in Greenville, North Carolina. The event is one of former U.S. President Donald Trumps [sic] first high-profile public appearances since leaving the White House in January.

So the photo is real, but it seems to show a zipper, as did a video of the event on CNN. Oh well.
