A recent picture of former United States President Donald Trump, taken on January 17 as he left his Manhattan apartment, has triggered speculation online due to noticeable red markings on his right hand. The image, capturing Mr. Trump lifting his arm and waving to the crowd, revealed red spots on his right index finger, thumb, and upper palm, leading to various assumptions on social media regarding the cause of these marks.
Several speculations circulated, ranging from infection to a rash possibly induced by his grip on a golf club. Social media users contributed a mix of humor and theories, suggesting scenarios like ketchup stains, enjoying a jelly donut, a burn, or even frostbite from Iowa. Some proposed more practical explanations, such as red ink from a stamp or seal used for signatures.
However, a recent report from TMZ has shed light on the mystery, revealing that the red markings were a result of blood from a paper cut. The images shared hours later on the same day showed that the marks had disappeared.
This isn’t the first time Donald Trump’s appearances have sparked intrigue. A month ago, he was seen using “toe pads,” two black rectangular pads under his feet while speaking at Mar-a-Lago. The purpose of these accessories led to speculation and jokes online, with various theories emerging. Some users suggested the “toe pads” were used to prevent leaning too far forward, while others pondered if it indicated a medical concern.
Despite these curiosities, Donald Trump’s political presence remains significant. Recently, he secured victory in Iowa’s caucuses, a crucial milestone in the US presidential race. The win further solidified his standing as the presumptive Republican candidate poised to challenge President Joe Biden in the upcoming November election. Trump’s consistent lead in polling over the past year has set the stage for a potential return to the White House, making his political journey a focal point amid the ongoing speculations surrounding his public appearances.
