Donald Trump is supposed to be winning, right? He and his allies have spent the past week insisting that he’s been exonerated in his criminal scandals, and that he’s now boldly moving forward. But Trump’s own mouth told a very different story today, and it involved everything from Robert Mueller to Fred Trump to oranges. No, really.

While speaking with reporters today, Donald Trump urged everyone to “take a look at the oranges, the oranges of the investigation.” After he had twice said “oranges” while trying to say “origins,” Trump gave up and instead told everyone to look at “the beginnings of that investigation.” He then somehow managed to correctly get the word “origin” to come out of his mouth, before ultimately saying “oranges” for a third time. The brief video clip, which you can watch below, was nothing short of stunning:

The kicker is that Trump wasn’t done screwing up. He later said that “my father is German, right, was German, and born in a very wonderful place in Germany.” Meanwhile back in the real world, Trump’s father was born in New York City in 1905. Perhaps Trump was mistakenly referring to his grandfather, who was born in the Kingdom of Bavaria in 1869, which is now part of Germany – but it seems more likely that Trump has simply forgotten what country his own father was born in.

Donald Trump misspeaks on a fairly regular basis, and he makes false claims on a near-constant basis. But his words today go way beyond what we’re accustomed to seeing from him. Even as House Democrats launched their first big subpoena at the Trump regime today, and are apparently planning to launch several more tomorrow, Donald Trump suddenly sounds – in all seriousness – like he belongs in a treatment facility.
