There have been no shortage of bizarre moments in Donald Trump’s presidency. From his casual references to windmills causing cancer to his questions about injecting people with disinfectant to kill COVID-19, “bizarre” has been a recurrent and frightening theme with the 45th president of the United States.

At a campaign even in Wisconsin on Thursday – yes, the same Wisconsin with a rapidly rising number of COVID-19 cases currently – Trump was in the middle of telling a made-up story in which he said that Democrats are worse than murderous dictators, he suddenly shifted mid-story and began reading the prepared remarks in front of him.
‘A friend of mine, very smart, very successful person .. he said, ‘So which is the toughest nation to deal with? Is it China? Is it possibly Russia? Or is it maybe North Korea?’ I said no, the toughest nation to deal with are the Democrats in the USA. The Democrats in the USA are much tougher to deal with than any of these people that we deal with. They’re far more unreasonable and actually they’re a little crazy.’
Suddenly, he looked down and, without any indication that he was shifting to another topic, began to read.
‘We take care of our communities, and when the time comes, when history calls, when our flag is threatened, we defend our country like nobody else has ever defended our country or our flag. We have to defend our flag.’
Twitter caught the odd shift, as well. Read some of their comments below:
