A clip showing President Donald Trump seemingly wandering away from his limousine sparked controversy (video below).

In the clip, Trump can be seen walking down the steps of Air Force One at Andrew Air Force Base before turning and walking away from a limo that is parked directly at the bottom of the stairway.

He is quickly approached by a Secret Service agent, who directs him to the car he is supposed to be taking.

Though many theorized that the president may be suffering from dementia, some felt he was just not informed about what vehicle he was taking back to the White House.

"You make him sound as if he’s an idiot," one commenter wrote, Death and Taxes reported. "The fact is, President Trump always takes Marine One from Andrew Air Force Base to the White House, so he walked towards the Marine One chopper when his aide told him they’ll use the vehicles this time."

Trump had just returned from a weekend at his Bedminster, New Jersey, resort when the footage was taken.

Meanwhile, controversy continued to surrounding a tweet from the president that included a video of him beating a man with a CNN logo superimposed on his head. The Reddit user who created the video issued an apology for his history of racist, inflammatory comments on the site.

"I would like to apologize to the members of the Reddit community for getting this site and this sub embroiled in a controversy that should never have happened," the user wrote, Business Insider reported. "I am in no way this kind of person. I love and accept people of all walks of life and have done so my entire life."

The user had a history of anti-Semitic, anti-Muslim and racist remarks on the website, including advocating using a MOAB (Mother of All Bombs) on a group of refugees.

"Free speech is a right we all have, but it shouldn't be used in the manner that it was in the posts that were put on this site," the user wrote in his apology. "I do not advocate violence against the press and the meme I posted was in no way advocating that in any way, shape, or form."

"To people who troll on the internet for fun, consider your words and actions conveyed in your message and who it might upset or anger," he continued. "So to the members of this community, the site, the media (especially CNN), and anyone offended by the posts, again I apologize. This is one individual that you will not see posting hurtful or hateful things in jest online."
