Donald Trump has a history of going on strange tangents.

On the Sunday, June 23, episode of MSNBC's Velshi, Res noted that Trump seemed to be "a little saner" when she worked for him, but admitted he was known for making "ridiculous remarks" that others did not always find very funny.

"It reminds me of a time when, we had just hired residential manager, German guy, and Donald was bragging among us, to our executives, we were four of us, how great the guy was," she explained. "And he was a real German, and he was so neat and clean."

Trump made the strange comments at a May campaign rally while he was in the middle of discussing alleged immigration issues.

"They’re emptying out their mental institutions into the United States, our beautiful country. They don’t want to report that the mental institution population is down because they’re taking people from insane asylums and from mental institutions," he told the New Jersey crowd in May.

"An insane asylum is a mental institution on steroids. Has anyone ever seen The Silence of the Lambs?" he asked the audience. "The late, great Hannibal Lecter is a wonderful man. He oftentimes would have a friend for dinner ... Congratulations. The late, great Hannibal Lecter."
