President Donald Trump spoke for nearly an hour about a rambling set of issues like baseball and wrestling. He turned to attack his foes, blast Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) and apologized to the state of Utah on behalf of Romney.
He even began throwing out curse words. But the only apology he issued was to his family, for making them go through a "dirty, rotten, deal."
After calling out every Republican he felt helped him, Trump rambled about how he was wronged. He name-checked every enemy or anyone he perceived to be an enemy.
MSNBC's Chris Matthews called it like a conversation after 18 holes in the locker room.
Many conservatives on Twitter began asking about the sanity of the president:
