Trump claims you need an ID to buy cereal and that people vote twice by putting on a different hat

This is from the Guardian:

Trump renewed his unfounded belief that there is massive voter fraud in the United States in an interview with the Daily Caller.

“The Republicans don’t win and that’s because of potentially illegal votes,” Trump complained. “When people get in line that have absolutely no right to vote and they go around in circles. Sometimes they go to their car, put on a different hat, put on a different shirt, come in and vote again. Nobody takes anything. It’s really a disgrace what’s going on.

He then added “If you buy a box of cereal – you have a voter ID.” No identification is needed to purchase cereal or any other breakfast food in the United States.

Trump has previously falsely claimed that up to 5m votes were illegally cast in the 2016 presidential election.

I assume the addition of “or any other breakfast food” is that famous dry British humor you hear so much about.

His lickspittles, aka, Republicans, will no doubt claim that this is another one of those “seriously but not literally” (or is it vice versa?) things.  On the other hand:

As we know, Trump is a man who gets away with saying a lot of unacceptable bullshit under the guise of him just messing around. Like during the 2016 election when he publicly asked Russia to hack his opponent’s campaign, which his administration later clarified was just a hilarious joke.

For what it’s worth, I think Trump is undergoing serious cognitive deterioration, but it’s easy to lose sight of this because it’s difficult to unbundle his dementia from his pre-existing ignorance, stupidity, and narcissism.
