Since parting with the White House, former US President Donald Trump has mostly stayed away from the spotlight, opting instead to release a variety of releases to the public through his post-presidency office. However, over the weekend, the former commander-in-chief made one of his first public appearances.
Although Trump’s remarks are often the cause of backlash or a series of Twitter threads, it appears his commentary at a weekend convention took a backseat once netizens began to question whether the former president was wearing his trousers backwards.
The trouser inquiry came as Trump gave a speech at the North Carolina Republican Party’s state convention on Saturday. For some, the location and shape of the wrinkles on the trousers were the source of the claims.
However, after a lengthy examination conducted by fact-checking website Snopes, it was soon determined that Trump did not have his pants on backwards, much to the disappointment of some netizens.
The 2020 US election proved to be one of the more contested White House bids in recent history, with former US President Donald Trump and supporters voicing unsubstantiated voter fraud claims in an effort to raise doubt over election procedures. Among those supporters was Rudy Giuliani, who momentarily served as Trump’s adviser and attorney.
From remarks about potentially snapping up Greenland to engaging in Twitter wars with critics, it’s no secret that former US President Donald Trump’s time in the White House served sketch ideas on a silver platter to NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.” In fact, many Trump administration shenanigans proved to be the weekend show’s bread and butter.
As the saying goes, people who live in glass houses should not throw stones. According to netizens, US President Joe Biden did not adhere to this proverb during his Wednesday remarks on Russia following his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Brussels, Belgium.
US President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday held their much-anticipated meeting in Geneva, Switzerland, touching on a variety of subjects, including the COVID-19 pandemic, US troop removal from Afghanistan, the political crisis in Belarus, and, of course, relations between Russia and the US, among other hot topics.
