Brian Williams ended his show on Tuesday night with a frank and honest discussion of Donald Trump's weird and ill-fitting pants, as a segue to The Lincoln Project's latest ad on a diminished Donald Trump.

MSNBC's Brian Williams closed his show Tuesday night by defending those mocking President Donald Trump for his ill-fitting pants on display at the North Carolina Republican Party dinner.
Williams, like many, was swept up in the comedy of the moment of those claiming that Trump's trousers were on backward. While other angles and high definition proved the theory false, it did spark another look at Trump's pants problem.
"One thing we did move on too quickly is the Trump appearance at the North Carolina wingding in this past weekend," confessed Williams. "It was, after all, three nights ago. In part because of social media, which makes TV news types seem thoughtful and reflective — social media went wild over Trump's pants. Maybe with the help of photoshopping the first theory is they were on backward. It is not body shaming as much as it is a straight-up observation that those pants could accommodate a family of four. Here we are distracted again. It was the substance of Trump's remarks and the demeanor in that night's kickoff of the big lie grievance tour that led The New York Times to say that he appeared diminished. And then along came the Lincoln Project with their own takeaway from that very night."
There was some discussion on Twitter the other day that Trump had his pants on backwards. According to Snopes, no he did not.

Don’t overthink this: Trump was wearing his pants backwards.
And because of the Republicans he surrounds himself with, nobody has the guts to tell him.
It’s not really a metaphor for America so much as an abject lesson in our failure.

Pretty good Saturday night studying Trump's pants like the Zapruder film.
[I'm staking out the center here: Pants are on correctly, diaper bulge smoothing the fly.]

Thousands of anti-Trump people are tweeting a false claim about the former president’s pants. Great work, excellent use of time https://t.co/FZAdIvruL4
