The Paralympic Games organization slammed President Donald Trump Saturday morning after he called the games “tough to watch” on Friday.

At a photo-op for Olympic and Paralympic athletes Friday evening, Trump seemingly deviated from his prepared remarks. “What happened with the Paralympics was so incredible and so inspiring to me,” he said. “And I watched—it’s a little tough to watch too much, but I watched as much as I could.”

Some are criticizing the President for his remarks, while others have rushed to his defense, claiming that he meant that he lacks time to watch television.
