On the 7th of November, twitter user Max Howroute uploaded a video which purported to show US President Donald Trump wearing adult diapers.
There are many legitimate medical reasons why someone – especially of Donald Trump’s advanced age of 73 – would find adult diapers a necessity. Normally at UGM we would not delve into an individual’s medical issues – nor do we think having said issues should be embarrassing or shameful.
However, the health of the President of the United States, one of the most powerful people in the world, has always been a matter of public concern. Indeed, the relative health of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton was an issue in the 2016 presidential campaign.
Furthermore, Donald Trump has infamously mocked people because of their physical disabilities.
The question of whether the President of the United States wears adult diapers, therefore, is one which we consider to be of legitimate public interest.
The twitter thread is full of speculation which we can neither confirm nor deny. However, we can present to you some relevant comments which you may read through and decide for yourself.
