Trump did NOT wear his pants backwards at North Carolina speech

Much to the chagrin of his critics, it can be revealed that Donald Trump didn’t wear his pants backwards during a North Carolina speech over the weekend and videos suggesting he did were only taken from a bad angle.

A video clip of Trump’s rally in Greenville, North Carolina on Friday, raced the internet all weekend. It showed Trump’s pants oddly wrinkled around the front thighs, with no visible fly.

But new high-resolution photos and videos from the same event prove the pants were on the right track after all.

Trump critics jumped on the footage, comparing him to 90s hip-hop duo Kriss Kross.

A cell phone video clip from the TV broadcast drove Trump critics insane, appearing to show him wearing pants with no zipper in the front and oddly bunched at the thighs.

“Others are noticing this, but it cannot be shared enough: Donald Trump delivered his big speech today with his pants backwards.

“Look closely and tell me I’m wrong,” tweeted New York Daily News columnist Brandon Friedman.

Theories and speculations ran rampant as the video made the rounds, while others suggested the pants could be elastic-waist pull-ups with no button or zip at the front.

“His pants aren’t backwards. His tailor had him pull on a pair of trousers to match the jacket, they are held up with an elasticated waist and/or suspenders,” suggested one Twitter user.

“In other words, it looks like he’s struggling with incontinence and needs to get his pants down quickly,” the person added.

Trump haters took to the video clip with joy, including the anti-Trump Lincoln Project, which contrasted a still frame from the video with a photo of President Joe Biden smiling on his bike

Trump haters took to the video clip with joy, including the anti-Trump Lincoln Project, which contrasted a still frame from the video with a photo of President Joe Biden smiling on his bike.

Trump supporters, however, fired back angrily, claiming the video had been manipulated.

“I can’t believe how many leftist idiots, namely @ProjectLincoln, have fallen for the horribly photoshopped photo of Trump’s pants,” tweeted conservative commentator John Cardillo.

The video doing the rounds on Twitter consisted of cell phone footage from a televised broadcast of the rally, but an investigation by DailyMail.com suggests it hasn’t been digitally altered.

The same images can be seen in a WHNS-TV broadcast of the event, and no fly is visible in the original, clearer images.

However, high-resolution photos of the event provide a clearer view of Trump’s pants than the video offers

The controversy sparked an avalanche of comparisons to Kriss Kross, the young hip-hop duo who went platinum at age 13 and wore their clothes backwards as a gimmick.

Several photos clearly show a seam running down the front of Trump’s pants, suggesting the pants had a zipper.

Trump haters have been adamant that the seam was too long to be a zipper, suggesting it was just a seam of the type found on the back of typical men’s trousers.

“Kriss Kross makes you Trump Trump,” tweeted actor Brian Guest, faking the lyrics to the group’s big hit debut single “Jump.”

“Now let’s see if the rest of his supporters turn their pants back. It will be like Kriss Kross in the 90s, but with the GOP…..” another person tweeted.

Some cracked puns, with one person asking, “Was the speech delivered in a no-fly zone?”

Others predicted that Trump would soon tackle pants-related rumors with his typical brio and antagonism.

“The next Trump rally will have 15 minutes of brand new content in his very normal pants,” tweeted screenwriter Bob Schooley.
