The Demented Mainstream Media Get Trump Zipppermania! By Chris Knight (Florida)
Talk about Trump derangement syndrome, and a double standard. Biden probably has trouble getting his pants on in the morning, but the mainstream media, frantic with hatred of anyone who looks like opposing them, continue to attack poor old sleepy Trump, claiming quite falsely that he is demented, putting his pants on backwards! Why not over this head? But photos show quite clearly that he did not. Thus, the madness is all in their camp, and what a crazy lot they are!
“Key players in the establishment media floated a conspiracy theory former President Donald Trump (R) wore his pants “backwards” Saturday and it was proof he has “dementia.”
New York Daily News columnist and “Obama guy” Brandon Friedman got the conspiracy theory revved up by posting on Twitter a poor quality video someone shot of a television screen of Trump standing near the podium in Greenville, North Carolina Saturday night:
Friedman said it “can’t be shared enough” and added definitively Trump “gave his big speech today with his pants on backwards.”
To date, Friedman’s video has over 6.2 million views.
Shelley Ross, a former NBC News, CBS News, and ABC News reporter, picked up Friedman’s theory and posted about it on Facebook, adding additional examples from the same poor-quality video:
Ross debated former Acting Director of United States National Intelligence Richard Grenell, who questioned her post, and she floated the prospect of dementia:
“…the zipperless pants are not a joke if it is related to frontal lobe dementia. I think it is more sad than funny,” she wrote.
“This post and the comments on it are proof positive that Trump Derangement Syndrome exists,” Grenell said.
“I will forever point to this post as Example #1 showing how grown adults who seemingly seem educated can become deranged partisans,” he added.
This photo taken at the event undermines the conspiracy floated by Friedman and Ross:

The New York Daily News columnist later posted a “fact check” by far-left Snopes, which rated his claim as “false.”
“Snopes looked through photographs taken at the event and published by the visual media company Getty Images that clearly show the former president on stage wearing pants with a zipper in the front,” the historically anti-Trump site reported.”
Friedman has yet to remove his false post. Probably anything the tyrannical Leftist regime think is damaging will remain, while ordinary deplorables have no freedom of speech at all. Yet, they put up with it. Down tools and strike I say!
