President Donald Trump received praise for signing an executive order demanding federal agencies strengthen initiatives to educate Americans in the early stages of kidney disease.

But some of his comments about the location of the kidney in the human body raised eyebrows.

In his remarks ahead of the signing, Trump said:

"Very special -- the kidney has a very special place in the heart. It's an incredible thing."

Watch below:

The kidneys—for the record—are located underneath the ribcage, closer to the back. They filter blood before sending it back to the heart, but are not part of the heart.

An unfortunate choice of words on Trump's part?

Maybe even some rare wordplay?

A lack of basic anatomy knowledge?

Considering the President has previously claimed the moon is a part of Mars, people were more inclined to believe the latter.

We have no idea.
