President Trump injured his hand while playing around with his son Barron, which required a bandage that was visible during the president’s recent trip to the southern border, according to the White House.

On Tuesday, Politico published a report that highlighted the bandage on the president’s hand. The news outlet noted that a photo posted by Fox News host Sean Hannity during an interview with Trump showed a blood-stained bandage on the president’s right-hand.

The article goes on to state the following:

“The President was having fun and joking around with his son Barron and scratched his hand,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told Politico.

Conspiracies are now going wild, with people again questioning the president’s health, or suggesting he had an IV in his hand. Another Twitter user claimed he hurt his hand when it slammed it on the table in the meeting with Chuck Schumer and Pelosi – which Trump has denied he did, despite Schumer’s claim that Trump “slammed his hand on the table.”

Multiple Twitter users are accusing Sanders of lying, saying they’ve never seen Trump play with his son.  They are insisting the bandaged wound is from an IV port.

“Every single time I’ve been admitted to a hospital in the last 25 years, the back of my hand is exactly the place where the staff installed an IV port. That bandage tells me Trump was/is getting something via IV recently. The WH is lying. Again,” one person posted on Twitter.

    Fools will always act like fools. So why bother to explain anything to the media? Let the fools rave on.

    1) IVs are more typically given on the inside of the elbow. 2) One would slam a table with the palm of one’s hand, not the back.

    Media and Democrats just don’t have much common sense.
