Love him or hate him, Donald Trump is all over the media. And as Republicans battle it out for the Presidential nomination, Trump continues to court controversy with his complete lack of a filter. Below is but a small sampling of some of his crazier quotes.
10“All of the women on The Apprentice flirted with me—consciously or unconsciously. That’s to be expected.” (2004)
Fun fact: after reading the above quote and picturing Donald Trump in your mind, you’re now thinking about the man himself having s*x with women half his age. We’re sorry.
9“I’ve said that if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.” (2006)
To continue with the theme of unpleasant Donald Trump s*xuality (and again, we apologize), this was part of his response to how he would feel about his daughter posing in Playboy. But regardless of context implying romantic inclination towards your own daughter will always be creepy.
8“If Hillary Clinton can’t satisfy her husband what makes her think she can satisfy America?” (2015)
Our Trump s*x-trilogy ends with this. Here Trump confuses one’s inability to prevent extramarital affairs with holding political office. Strangely enough, Trump has said that his own extramarital affairs are fair game for criticism but doubts they will have any impact.
7“He’s not a war hero. He’s a war hero because he got captured. I like people who weren’t captured.” (2015)
This was a remark about Senator John McCain, former presidential candidate, and Vietnam POW. Ignoring how distasteful the remark is to anyone who served in the military, Trump has no actual military experience and managed to avoid being drafted into Vietnam several times.
6“It’s like golf.” (2011)
This is but a small piece of a much larger quote explaining his opposition of gay marriage. To summarize: he compares marriage equality to golfers using longer putters and how that looks unattractive. Trump admits to being a traditionalist (in both golf and marriage, we guess), two things that are totally related. You can read the whole thing here but it won’t make any more sense.
5“No One Remembers Who Came in Second.” (2013)
Currently, in the running for the Internet’s favorite joke of 2016, this quote was drudged up from Trump’s Twitter account after he came in second at the Iowa Caucuses.
4“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, Disgusting, Let’s Not Talk, We Want to be Very, Very Straight up.” (2015)
This is Donald Trump, a grown man, responding to Hillary Clinton having to take a bathroom break during a debate. This is a man who wants to be president of the United States unable to use the word “bathroom.”
3“I could Stand in The Middle of Fifth Avenue, And Shoot Somebody, and I Wouldn’t Lose Any Votes, Okay? It’s, Like Incredible.” (2006)
Whether or not this is true, Trump fails to understand one thing in the above scenario: it’s hard to be elected to the office when you’re serving a prison sentence for having shot someone.
