President Donald Trump has been having quite the weekend.

First, there was the New York Times report that revealed the FBI was investigating Trump to see if he was working on behalf of Russia, a report that he called “insulting” but never concretely denied.

Later that day, Trump decided to voice a bizarre lie about his whereabouts for the last few months, telling Fox News host Jeanine Pirro that “I haven’t actually left the White House in months.” That one struck a chord.

Naturally, a lot of people were confused

Much of the confusion stems from the fact that Trump has been to both Iraq and Texas in the last month, in what were very public and heavily covered trips.

While some people are questioning the integrity of the 72-year-old president’s brain, activist April Reign made the connection that perhaps Trump doesn’t consider his trips to see U.S. troops or the border he loves to bloviate about as important. 

He possibly meant that he hasn’t been to his favorite vacation spot, Mar-a-Lago, in months.

Meanwhile, the government has been shut down for the longest stretch of time in U.S. history thanks to Trump’s demand for an absurd amount of money to build a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border, leaving hundreds of thousands of people without paychecks that they desperately need to survive.
