In a bizarre moment of awarding the Medal of Honor to an Iraq War veteran, President Donald Trump pivoted from his remarks to say that the soldier was attacked by someone “wearing a wardrobe.” Typically when Trump fumbles his remarks, he restates them. In this case, he said the correct phrase and then changed it to something strange.
“Then a third assailant burst out of a wardrobe — wearing a wardrobe,” Trump said.
It’s unclear if the president understands that a wardrobe is also a piece of furniture in addition to a collection of clothing, either way he seemed confused, according to observers. Fake Congressman Jack Kimble said, however, that it made much more sense.
Thank you for changing a terrorist came out of a wardrobe to a terrorist came out wearing a wardrobe, Mr. President. That made much more sense.

Many took to the internet to question the mental acuity of the president.
Watch the video below and read the best tweets below that:
Rapist Trump doesn't know what a wardrobe is. He just read "burst out of a wardrobe" and "corrected" it to"wearing a wardrobe". This squish brained coward is everything Iran has accused him of

Did Trump just say an assailant jumped “out of a wardrobe” and then correct it to “wearing a wardrobe?” Reading is fundamental.

.@realDonaldTrump doesn’t know what a wardrobe is. He just read that an enemy combatant in Iraq “jumped out of a wardrobe.” Then he added, “Wearing a wardrobe.” 🤦♀️

45* just now, at a medal of honor ceremony:
"A 3rd insurgent burst out of a wardrobe. Wearing a wardrobe."
I still can't believe this moron is in charge of our country.

How incredibly ignorant is our @POTUS. During the Medal of Honor ceremony, he read, “he came out of the wardrobe”. But dumbass didn’t know that wardrobe is a piece of furniture! He corrects himself saying “he was wearing a wardrobe”. God help us.

“Wearing a wardrobe” DJT. When I think the stupidity cannot get worse, he always comes through!

Trump was reading aloud and clearly doesn’t know that “wardrobe” can also mean “closet”. After saying that an assailant “burst out of a … wardrobe” Trump immediately corrected the text to: “…WEARING a wardrobe…”
Such a moron. https://t.co/LxjVpbGPFo

Trump, awarding medal of honor to staff Sgt. David Bellavia, says assailants jumped out of a wardrobe. Confused by the word "wardrobe," I suppose, Trump restates this saying, jumped out “wearing” a wardrobe. Did I hear this right?

Lordy. @realdonaldtrump just read (with no comprehension) praise of David Bellavia, the first living Iraq War recipient, to be awarded the Medal of Honor:
" … the third as-sail-ee-ant [assailant) burst out of a wardrobe … WEARING A WARDROBE."
Thanks for your service, Sgt. pic.twitter.com/6IBEKsgZjM

"…an assailant burst from a wardrobe, WEARING A WARDROBE . . ." at WH MOH ceremony.
Your president*, America. @CharlesPPierce

‘The wheels are coming off’: MSNBC panel says Trump told his chief of staff to ‘walk the plank’
Two MSNBC anchors discussed Thursday's whirlwind day of breaking news in scandals involving President Donald Trump.
The host of "The Rachel Maddow Show" joined Brian Williams on "The 11th Hour" to discuss Trump holding the G7 Summit at his Trump National Doral Miami golf course and the White House acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, confessing that there was a quid pro quo with Ukraine -- before attempting to walk back his confession.
"Did things change today, do you think?" Williams asked.
"I do feel like the wheels are coming off," Maddow said.
"For the Energy Secretary [Rick Perry] to resign, you've had two cabinet secretaries resign during the impeachment proceedings already, one of whom, the current one resigning tonight, the Energy Secretary, does appear to be involved in the scheme, at least on a couple of different levels. We have got the White House Chief of Staff who was sent out today, not only to make the, 'Yes, it was quid pro quo. Yes, we did it. What are you going to make of it?' article -- which was bracing, but then to take it back, simultaneously announcing this self-dealing, which is something more blatant than we’ve ever seen from any president in U.S. history," she explained.
Rick Wilson rips Trump for holding G7 meeting at his ‘South Florida House of Bed Bugs Hotel’
Republican strategist Rick Willson blasted President Donald Trump after the administration announced that the G7 meeting of world leaders would be held at his Trump National Doral Miami golf course.
Chief of staff and Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney announced the severely under-performing resort would receive the lucrative contract during a contentious White House briefing.
Trump impersonated a CNN anchor — and a US president — during epic meltdown at Texas speech
President Donald Trump offered multiple impersonations during a campaign rally in Dallas, Texas on Thursday.
Trump showed the crowd his impersonation of a president of the United States -- and a CNN anchor.
"No guns. No religion. No oil. No natural gas," Trump said. "Abraham Lincoln could not win Texas under those circumstances. Couldn’t do it."
In fact, Abraham Lincoln could not win Texas when he ran for president as the state refused to print any ballots with his name.
He then showed the audience two impersonations as part of his 87-minute speech.
"I used it to say, I can be more presidential. Look," Trump said, as he shuffled awkwardly on stage.
