In all honesty, this is just the latest in a long line of substance issues in the sport of horse racing.

There were plenty of comedic takes on social media about the whole thing. President Donald Trump also issued a rather hilarious statement regarding the latest horse racing scandal.

I’m sorry, but this guy’s sarcastic humor is simply top-notch.

In the statement, Donald Trump said that the Kentucky Derby winner’s positive drug test “is emblematic of what is happening to our country.”

See the full statement from his blog site below:

In the aftermath of the drug test, Churchill Downs suspended the Medina Spirit’s trainer, Bob Baffert. One week after setting a record by winning his seventh Kentucky Derby, Baffert is now marred in yet another controversy related to positive drug tests.

Obviously, Medina Spirit is a horse and therefore doesn’t decide what meds and drugs he takes. But that didn’t stop plenty from having a good laugh at the whole ordeal on Twitter:

Hey, we all need a little satire every now and then. Thanks to Donald Trump and the fine folks of Twitter, we have plenty of it to finish off the week!
