Everyone is baffled by Trump’s rambling rant about flushing toilets ’10 times, 15 times’

Published

on

Another day, another truly baffling series of words coming from President Donald Trump’s mouth.

Speaking at a White House meeting on Friday about small business and regulation, Trump went on one of his trademark riffs, touching on a number of subjects with the clarity of a muddy puddle.
