The president isn’t exactly known for being quick on his feet, and while he may rehearse things behind closed doors, he tends to lose his mind when he gets in front of a camera. Monday morning, the White House held an event for hero dog, Conan, a K-9 used by the military in the raid that killed terrorist al-Baghdadi.
Oh, he’s also terrified of animals.
Conan just arrived in the U.S. from the Middle East to take part in the event in, no doubt, a veiled attempt at distracting Americans from the fact that he is the subject of impeachment hearings.
Trump started the event by threatening reporters when he told them that the dog would attack them if they “opened their mouths.”
Then, Trump began to go over some stuff he seemingly practiced before going outside. At one point, you can hear the president say, “Conan is a…”
The president seems to be having a lapse in memory at this point when he may be trying to remember what breed the dog is. Trump gave it up pretty quickly, and covered his tracks by saying:
“It’s an INCREDIBLE story, I, uh, learned a lot about his particular kind of dog, and uh, it’s trained that if you open your mouths, you will be attacked. You want to be very, very careful.”
“Uh, but, uh, Conan came over from the middle east. just arrived with some of the great people from the special forces that did the incredible- flaw, it was a flawless attack.”

The responses to this White House event on Twitter were so hilarious that we decided to save a bunch of them for you below:
CONAN THE HERO DOG
President Trump just honored Conan at the White House for helping take down the ISIS leader.
The left is already accusing Conan of sexual assault, they claim the dog humped someones leg 7 years ago.

Conan is everything Trump isn’t. Intelligent, loyal, brave, and far too well-trained to ever grab a pussy, despite how some dogs feel about cats.

How long before Trump calls Conan a Never Trumper

WH source officially confirms that Conan is a female – so hold off of the “good boy” ledes

Trump supporters today: Hey, he had a nice event for the Conan dog, and he walked and made comments without doing anything stupid. Therefore, ignore his attempted extortion of Ukraine, dismantling of military disciplinary review protocols and declaring war on civil servants.

Feel bad for Conan the Dog who served our country in combat but was forced to accept an award for valor from a five-time draft dodger. https://t.co/TbYHNY8nyG
