The president has delivered a lot of strange speeches and remarks, so much so that there is no shortage of memes and gaffes to keep us entertained for many lifetimes to come. He doesn’t seem to be thinking about the things he says before he says them, and is seemingly unaware when he says things that make people think he has a screw loose.
Monday morning, the White House held a ceremony for Conan, the dog used by the military in the Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi raid that ended in the death of the terrorist. Upon stepping outside in front of White House reporters covering the event, Trump warned them that the dog would attack them if they spoke.
“If you open your mouths you will be attacked.”
“We were going to put a muzzle on the dog, and I thought that was a good idea, but then it gets even more violent. But no, the dog is incredible, actually incredible. We spent some good time with it. So brilliant, so smart.”
Check out the video below:

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

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.

Dog testifies against Trump at impeachment hearing.
Trump: I never even met the dog. Conan? What? The guy on late night? I don't even like dogs. https://t.co/YIsdmMTKx0

How many questions did Trump have about Conan's drug sniffing abilities?

Trump awarded Conan the dog a medal as he the president is hitting a new low in his bid to distract America from his impeachment.

Conan has not, it would seem, been "fired like a dog." https://t.co/KXErfHgQFn
