Trump Turns Iowa Speech Into Diatribe Against Flies And Fly Paper

Donald Trump said some harsh words against refugees on Monday during a speech in Adel, Iowa, but saved his most damning comments for the flies buzzing around his face.

The former president told supporters that if reelected, he will begin “ideological screening” for all immigrants and won’t allow anyone who sympathizes with Hamas and Muslim extremists to enter the country.

However, he got distracted during his diatribe by flies buzzing around his face.

“I didn’t know you had flies in Iowa,” Trump said while waving his hand in front of his face. “I hate flies!!!”

Many users of X, formerly known as Twitter, fact-checked Trump’s bizarre and false claim.
