Armchair doctors all over the world are trying to figure out what could be behind President Donald Trump’s Band-Aids over the past week after the White House commented saying he obtained a bloody injury from playing around with his son.
People got suspicious when press secretary Sarah Sanders tried to explain the leader showed a bandage oozing with blood last Thursday and a cleaner version on Monday, because of some father and son bonding time.
The response about his 12-year-old boy Barron caused people to immediately go to Twitter to figure out a riddle concerning the 72-year-old’s health.

Trump addressed the annual American Farm Bureau Federation convention in the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans and his Band-Aid didn’t go unnoticed
A writer at The Root joked: ‘Did he bite it while trying to down a hamberder?’
One tweeter suggested Trump may have been backtracking on the effects of a few too many fast food items.
The theories came after he hosted the Clemson Tigers college football team at the White House on Monday, ordering in the likes of Wendy’s and McDonald’s for the playoffs champions in absence of a more upscale spread amid the government shutdown.
‘Is the band-aid covering up Trump’s lipid drain? That liquified fat has to be drained after eating all those leftover burgers from the other night,’ the social media user posted.

The State Dining Room table also included Burger King Whoppers, in case the young sportsmen were keen on the Filet-O-Fish, Quarter Pounders and salads there for the taking.
After hosting the South Carolina students Trump ignited concern when he flashed a Band-Aid near the color of his flesh on his way to New Orleans.
Speculation prompted Sanders to release the following statement to POLITICO on Tuesday: ‘The President was having fun and joking around with his son Barron and scratched his hand.’

A Twitter user said in response to the comment: ‘That’s a lie. He was in the White House for a month. Me thinks he was being treated for something after seeing that band aid. That’s an IV site. By the way, I’ve never seen Trump even hug Barron.’
Her attempt to calm the country cause an even bigger uproar with Twitter user accusing her of lying about Trump’s health.
Despite being the oldest US president inaugurated when he took office in January 2017, New York gastroenterologist Harold Bornstein claimed in September 2016 that his medical test results were ‘astonishingly excellent’ and he ‘would be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency’.
At the time Trump was 70 years old. However in May 2018 the doctor admitted to NPR that Trump dictated what the letter he penned should state.
Earlier last year POTUS’ physician, Ronny Jackson, revealed his weight in a press conference and it was revealed to be only one pound under what would be considered medically obese.
Trump first showed off a blood-soaked covering on his hand last Thursday when he was pictured with Sean Hannity during an interview at the Mexican border.
