President Trump is infamous for constantly going off on extremely weird and nonsensical tangents about different issues facing America. It’s as if his brain has trouble putting sentences together with ideas, but he’s too arrogant and delusionally self-confident to admit it — so he just continues talking, blabbing out whatever nonsense his brain offers up without bothering to consider whether or not its something a president should be saying.
Some of his best bits include that time he referred to farmers as “local milk people,” the cabinet meeting speech about how his generals are handsome like movie stars and liberals don’t want to cast them in movies, the many times he’s claimed that the F-35 is literally invisible, the incident where he argued with a group of Vietnam veterans after describing a scene from the movie Apocalypse Now as if it was real, the dinner at which he said that windmills cause cancer, the speech in which he ranted about how he has to flush toilets ten-plus times, and the recent speech in which he complained that the showerheads don’t produce enough water anymore (“It’s called RAIN, folks!”).
To that distinguished collection, we can now add the “use of soup as a deadly protest weapon,” which Trump went on about at length during a meeting with the National Association of Police Organizations Leadership.

It would almost be hard to believe this is real if it wasn’t posted on the White House’s website itself.
Sign the petition to tell Congress to stop Trump’s sabotage of the post office!

Where he got the idea that protesters are hurling cans of soup at the police is unknown, but it’s probably an imaginary right-wing trope like the “cement milkshakes” that white supremacists and their police allies claimed antifa protesters were throwing at them in Portland.
At this point we don’t need to tell you how important it is that we get this guy out of office as quickly as possible, but this video is yet another stunning reminder of just how unfit Donald Trump is to be in charge of anything in every possible way.
