For fans of Donald Trump, his Saturday night speech in North Carolina was notable as his "coming out party" as he ramps up a possible 2024 presidential bid. For critics of the ex-president it will remain memorable as a night that was filled with speculation that he was wearing his pants backwards during the speech.
On Twitter, commenters immediately began pointing out that Trump's pants appeared to lack a fly, with some speculating that the suit pants might indeed be reversed while others wondered if they were elastic-waist pull-up pants.
