On Tuesday, President Donald Trump gave a freewheeling press conference outside of the White House. Among the many diverse topics he covered, Trump gave a bizarre assessment of Sen. Mitch McConnell's relationship to Russia.

"Mitch McConnell is a man that knows less about Russia and Russian influence than even Donald Trump, and I know nothing," Trump said.

Social media users that caught the segment responded with glee—and outrage.
