Transrectal Ultrasound Ted


In a recent video, Ted’s campaign thought it was pretty clever to point out that “TRUSTED” has “TED” at the end. Good job! That should really build people’s view of his character.

Except… TRUS means something else entirely. If you Google “trus”, this is what shows at the top:

A transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) is an ultrasound technique that is used to view a man’s prostate and surrounding tissues. The ultrasound transducer (probe) sends sound waves through the wall of the rectum into the prostate gland, which is located directly in front of the rectum.
