Five Things Donald Trump Said on Tuesday

Today President Trump:

  • Tried three times to say the word “origins” but instead said “oranges.”
  • Said that his father was born in Germany, not New York City.
  • Complained, in a speech being televised on CSPAN, that he had to be careful because someone was probably going to leak what he said to the media.
  • In the same speech, warned Republicans to be “more paranoid” because he “doesn’t like the way the votes are being tallied.”
  • Said about wind farms, “They say the noise causes cancer.”

But don’t worry. His mental state is just fine. Nothing to see here.
