Donald Trump spoke to reporters outside the White House on Thursday where he fumbled to explain that he tested negative for the coronavirus.
Instead of straight-up saying that he tested negative. Trump had to add a spin to it by saying he “tested positively in another sense.”
“I tested very positively in another sense,” Trump told reporters. “So this morning, I tested positively toward negative, right? So, no, I tested perfectly this morning, meaning I tested negative. But that’s a way of saying it — positively toward the negative.”
Here is a quote from Trump:
"I tested very positively in another sense so— this morning. Yeah. I tested positively toward negative, right. So. I tested perfectly this morning. Meaning I tested negative." pic.twitter.com/xA0DBUcfr9

Some Twitter users decided to troll Trump over his incoherent remarks.
And Fox News has an issue with the way Biden speaks. 😂🙄

No. In fact, there’s rarely an hour that goes by where he’s not embarrassing the nation or himself.

That's a child struggling to repeat something that an adult explained to him. Obviously, the adult knew the child couldn't grasp it, and resorted to extreme dumbing-down of the topic. The child utterly failed to grasp the phrases he attempted to memorize.

Donald is 6 points behind Biden and admitting anything negative is difficult right now for him. We really have been so lucky to live in a time of such a perfect President. Everything's going swimmingly. 🤪

Positively. But, in a negative way.

How anyone listens to this fool without bursting into laughter is beyond me.
