So, anyway, it turns out that Donald Trump didn’t put on his pants backward before speaking at North Carolina’s Republican Party state convention. Snopes went ahead and watched the former president’s 90-minute speech and combed through official photos from the event. It’s dutiful researchers found the zipper in the front of Trump’s pants, where they belong. You could have fooled Twitter, which had a field day with the #Trumppants hashtag while it lasted.
