WATCH: Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos pees his pants during speech
Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos had an embarrassing moment recently during a campaign speech and I totally feel for him! To bring you up to speed, he was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2012 and since then has undergone surgery for the disease.
Although he seems to be in good health at the moment, there is one unsightly side effect that was made clear during his public appearance.
President Santos is seeking re-election and putting himself out there during his campaign despite his health woes. However, at an appearance in Baranquilla, the 62-year-old president made a spectacle of himself when a wet spot appeared on the crotch of his khakis.
If that wasn't awkward enough, the spot started getting bigger and bigger. I'm not sure if the President could tell what was going on, but he continued on with his speech until the very end.
He may have been talking about improving his country, but I don't know if his message got across to the crowd he was speaking to. That wet spot was REALLY a sight for sore eyes.
I feel bad for him because everyone knows that with any surgery there are going to be some side effects. Perhaps in his case, incontinence is one of them. I hope he got checked out by his doctor after this embarrassing instance, and takes this as a precaution. You never know if this could be a sign of a bigger problem. If it isn't, President Santos should make sure to use the bathroom before going on stage during the remainder of his campaign trail.
