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.

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."ADVERTISEMENT
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
