Trump speech live updates – Viewers think Donald had ‘pants on backwards’ during wild North Carolina GOP speech


VIEWERS think Donald Trump had his pants on backwards during his big comeback speech on Saturday night.

The former president railed against the “radical left” and the “corrupt” 2020 election at the North Carolina’s annual state Republican Party convention, in his first major return to the political stage.

Posting on Twitter, people racked their brains as they shared screenshots of the event and claimed there was no zip on the front of Trump’s suit pants.

One wrote: “Others are noting this, but it can’t be shared enough: Donald Trump gave his big speech today with his pants on backwards. Look close and tell me I’m wrong.”

Another said: “His pants are definitely on backwards. There is no fly and the creases are those found at the back of the legs.”

A third shared a picture of the infamous fly on former vice president Mike Pence’s head and wrote: “No fly on Trump’s pants? I think I know where it went.”

During his speech, Trump blasted Biden and the Dems over the border “crisis” and jobless figures in the wake of the pandemic.

“Joe Biden had to do is sit back and do nothing and it was taking off like a rocket ship nobody’s ever seen in between the economy and all of the other things we did the border,” he said.

“Instead, the economy is going to hell and inflation is going to cause a catastrophe,” he added.

The former president spoke at the June 5 convention dinner in Greenville.
Trump narrowly carried North Carolina in 2020 and held numerous events in the state toward the end of his campaign.

Trump has kept a relatively low public profile since leaving office. His last significant public speech was in February at the CPAC convention

He’s still banned from Twitter and Facebook, and his blog shut down this week.

Trump has expressed interest in running for president again in 2024 but has not yet announced a decision.

The state party hopes Trump can help Republicans retake control of the U.S. House in the upcoming midterms.

  • NEW PHASE OF RALLIES

    Trump’s speech to hundreds of Republican officials and activists was the opening appearance in what is expected to be a new phase of rallies and public events.

    His advisers are already eyeing subsequent appearances in Ohio, Florida, Alabama and Georgia to help bolster midterm candidates and energize voters.
