Cleveland (eTruePolitics) – Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s pants briefly burst into flames shortly after he finished his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention, eTruePolitics has learned.
“It was incredible!,” one convention attendee exclaimed. “He had just finished shouting something about Hillary Clinton lying when his pants burst into flames.”
A quick thinking delegate – ironically a Ted Cruz supporter from Texas – grabbed a fire extinguisher and quickly doused the trouser inferno.
It was unclear how many in Quicken Loan Center realized the flames were an accident.
“I thought it was another cool PR stunt,” said one Trump observer. “He’s such a fantastic showman.”
“I know I did the right thing,” said the heroic Cruz delegate who asked that his name not be used. “I hope I don’t regret it in the morning.”
