Social media is having a field day after President Trump spent the day slurring words at events, and even suggesting he should be awarded the Medal of Honor.
Reporter Aaron Rupar of VOX was first to tweet out how Trump was struggling with words more than usual today.
“Ubsurd,” “Armed Forca,” Appliculble,” and “Obstulcles” are among those words he had difficulty with.
Here’s the video:

Trump also claimed today, “I am the chosen one”, just hours after endorsing the notion he is “the second coming.”
But that was far from all.
Trump also made an offhand remark to the 75th annual national convention of American Veterans.
At the event in Louisville, Kentucky, Trump singled out for praise WWII veteran and Medal of Honor recipient Woody Williams.
“That was a big day, Medal of Honor. Nothing like the Medal of Honor,” he continued. “I wanted one, but they told me I don’t qualify, Woody. I said, ‘Can I give it to myself anyway?’ They said, ‘I don’t think that’s a good idea.’”
Trump avoided military experience during the Vietnam War by claiming bone spurs in his toes.
Trump also said today he’s “very seriously” looking at trying to change the Constitution by executive order.
“We’re looking at that very seriously — birthright citizenship. Where you have a baby on our land … ‘congratulations the baby is now a US citizen’ … it’s, frankly, ridiculous.”
It’s also the 14th Amendment to the constitution.
On the issue of guns he concluded, oddly, “We have great mental illness.”
All in all, this was a rougher than usual day for the former reality TV host.
