Trump Talks About Taking Off His Shirt To Show ‘Wounds.’ Internet Can’t Even.


Donald Trump spoke about baring his torso to Christian conservatives on Saturday, prompting plenty of reaction on social media. (Watch the video below.)

“Together, we stood up to the communists, Marxists and fascists to defend religious liberty like no other president has ever done,” he told the Faith & Freedom Coalition in DC. “And I have the wounds all over my body. If I took this shirt off you’d see a beautiful, beautiful person but you’d see wounds all over me. I’ve taken a lot of wounds I can tell you. More than I suspect any president ever.”

While many on X lobbed personal digs, some zeroed in on the presumptive GOP nominee for saying he had wounds ― metaphorical or not.

Commenters reminded the former president that some of his predecessors, including Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy, sustained fatal wounds from gunshots while Trump has been accused of avoiding harm’s way. Detractors have called him a draft dodger for a claim of bone spurs in his foot that allowed him to skip military service during the Vietnam War.

“The wounds of a draft dodger must be painful,” one wrote.

“Mr. Bone Spurs is now turning himself into a public servant martyr,” another chimed in.
