President Trump on Monday compared police officers using excessive force inappropriately to a golfer missing a short putt, saying sometimes "they choke."

Trump, in an interview with Fox News host Laura Ingraham, argued that police are in a difficult position because they are forced to make snap decisions, often when their life may be in jeopardy. But his golf analogy prompted Ingraham to interject.

"They choke. Just like in a golf tournament, they miss a three-foot putt," Trump said.

"You're not comparing it to golf," Ingraham chimed in, suggesting the media might jump on the comparison.

"I'm saying people choke. People choke. And people are bad people. You have both. You have some bad people, and they choke," Trump added. "You could be a police officer for 15 years and all of a sudden you're confronted. You've got a quarter of a second to make a decision. If you don't make the decision, and you're wrong, you're dead. People choke under those circumstances, and they make a bad decision."

1. He went off the rails. Ingraham had to jump in to lead him back to reality.

This is scary. He is out of it and still going.
