We all know our commander and chief is quite the character. Whether you like him or not it’s not secret that he has said some absurd, strange, add sometimes just not that intelligent things. Yet it seems that even though some of these might have been enough to doom many other presidential candidates or Presidents, he came out the other side still intact and still president of
this country. Here you can read a roundup of the most absurd things our President has said to date.
His Views On Women
The infamous recording from 2005 between Billy Bush and Donald Trump in which he repeatedly is heard talking about making moves on women without consent and being able to grab her by the pussy because he is famous and they let you do it.
“I would build a great wall, and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me, and I’ll build them very inexpensively, I will build a great, great wall on our southern border. And I will have Mexico pay for that wall. He honestly believed that he was going to get another country to pay for the wall just because he said so.
“Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what the hell is going on.” (Rally in South Carolina, December 7, 2015) He didn’t ban people from places he has business ties despite them having strong muslim presence as well which was the reason for the ban another
ridiculous notion that muslims are the problem not extremists ruining it for everyone.
He Can Do No Wrong
“I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters.” (Rally in Iowa, January 23, 2016). He thinks that no matter what he is unbeatable. There is confidence and there is honestly thinking you are invincible.
“What I’m saying is that I will tell you at the time . I’ll keep you in suspense. OK?” (Third Presidential Debate, October 19, 2016)He doesn’t seem to understand how the laws and rules of our elections work. I am actually curious to know what he would have done if he lost.
“He’s a war hero because he was captured. I like people that weren’t captured, OK?” (Donald Trump on Senator John McCain at the Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa, on July 17, 2015) This coming from someone who never served in the military and has no idea what that kind of selfless service is like.
“I get up this morning and I turn on one of the networks and they show an empty field,” President Trump said in reference to media coverage of his inauguration during a speech given at CIA Headquarters Jan. 21. “I said wait a minute, I made a speech, I looked out, the field was— it looked like a million, a million and a half people. … t went all the way back to the Washington Monument.” Isn’t there really a point in lying to the people when there is actually photographic evidence that things aren’t as you say.
Getting Rid Of The First Amendment
“I’m going to open up our libel laws so when they write purposely negative and horrible and false articles, we can sue them and win lots of money.” Okay Trump, how many times do you think you would have been sued for saying horrible or false things at this point? So many, so so so many.
Don’t Forget Heidi Klum
“Heidi Klum. Sadly, she’s no longer a 10.” (Trump interview in the New York Times on August 15, 2015) Not that this is any way relevant to politics but still!I mean we all know Heidi Klum still looks beautiful! Not to mention she responded in the most brilliant way.
“It’s really cold outside, they are calling it a major freeze, weeks ahead of normal. Man, we could use a big fat dose of global warming!” (Twitter, October 19, 2015) Yes, because that’s how global warming works for sure.
“I’m speaking with myself, number one, because I have a very good brain and I’ve said a lot of things.” (Asked on Morning Joe who his foreign policy consultants are, March 16, 2016) Differing viewpoints are extremely important when making big decisions, its why we have consultants.
“After I beat them, I’m going to be so presidential, you’re going to be so bored, you’re going to say, this is the most boring human being I’ve ever interviewed.” (Interview on “Fox News Sunday” April 3, 2016) Please let us know when this is going to happen because we all are waiting for the moment we you live up to this particular promise.
“I might lie to you like Hillary does all the time, but I’ll never lie to Giacomo, okay?” –Donald Trump, admitting to lying to voters while speaking at a rally in Connecticut, but saying he would not lie to an 18-year-old cancer patient in the audience, Giacomo Brancado (August 13, 2016) He admits to lying to the people voting for him. That doesn’t seem like the best way to go about running a campaign.
“We won with poorly educated. I love the poorly educated.” –Donald Trump on his performance with poorly educated voters who helped him win the Nevada Caucus, Feb. 23, 2016. It’s a backhanded compliment kind of but still doesn’t seem like something to brag about.
His Daughter, Ivanka
“Yeah, she’s really something, and what a beauty, that one. If I weren’t happily married and, ya know, her father . . . ” –Donald Trump on his daughter Ivanka. There is just something not right about a man who thinks about his own daughter that way.
“I know where she went – it’s disgusting, I don’t want to talk about it. No, it’s too disgusting. Don’t say it, it’s disgusting.” –Donald Trump on Hillary Clinton taking a bathroom break during a Democratic presidential debate. I mean it is part of being human so…
He Is Perfect
“I don’t think I’ve made mistakes. Every time somebody said I made a mistake, they do the polls and my numbers go up, so I guess I haven’t made any mistakes.” –Donald Trump. Mistakes happen, and yet he won’t admit to making them, so in his mind he is perfect.
“Tomorrow we have a speech. It may rain. It might not rain — around 12:00. The truth is if it really pours, that’s OK because people will realize it’s my real hair and that’s okay. Might be a mess, but it’s my real hair,” I mean I’ve never seen anyone elses real hair act like that.
Politics And Alcohol
“I don’t talk about his alcoholism, so why would he talk about my foolishly perceived fascism?” (New York Times, May 28, 2016, about Libertarian vice-presidential nominee Bill Weld) Because in debats you should talk about politics and ideologies but maybe not so much their personal lives.
