Another day, another Donald Trump comment that has us all scratching our heads. According to a new transcript published by The Washington Post, Trump said that the reason he "hates" allowing refugees into the United States is because "[t]hey are not going to be wonderful people who go on to work for the local milk people" . . . Yeah, we're not sure what he meant by that either. The internet was quick to react to the bizarre comment — which may or may not have been in reference to US dairy farmers — with their own thoughtful and hilarious explanations of what the POTUS might have meant. We've rounded up the best of the bunch for you ahead.

My grandmother actually was an immigrant who worked for the local milk people. My dad still has her award from the dairy association. https://t.co/oydMmcU9OI
