Surely by now you know that Donald Trump says pretty outrageous stuff all the time. When he announced that he was going to run for president, a lot of people started ridiculing him; exactly because of the insulting things he always says. In case you were looking for a quick recap, take a look at these stupidest moments of Trump’s presidential campaign that will make you say WTF.
Mocking Serge Kovaleski – Serge is a news journalist who suffers from arthrogryposis, a condition that limits the way his joints function, and is known for writing and article in 2001 about police questioning a number of people celebrating 9/11. When he recently said that he didn’t recall exactly what he said in the article, Trump decided to mock him by bending his wrists and making fun of his disability while on a rally in South Carolina.
Calling Mexicans “Rapists” – You probably know about this, as it was featured in a lot of newspapers all around the world. Just when you thought Trump’s statements couldn’t get any worse, this is what he said about Mexican immigrants – “They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.”
Building a Wall – Insulting the immigrants wasn’t enough, so Trump had no other choice but to announce that he was going to have a wall built that would prevent Mexicans from coming into the US. In fact, he said that he would even force Mexicans to build it.
Denying Global Warming – Some denied it at first, but everyone around the world now knows that global warming is an extremely serious issue. Of course, everyone except Donald Trump, who said that “Global warming is a total, and very expensive hoax!”
Racist Tweet – In November 2014, Trump said that “Sadly, because president Obama has done such a poor job as president, you won’t see another black president for generations!” Nope, that wasn’t racist in the slightest.
Saying that He’s Not Racist – Of course, Trump defended himself when people accused him of being a racist simply by saying that he’s “the least racist person,” all because he once hired an African-American around six years ago.
Banning Muslims – In case you were wondering, Mexicans and African-Americans weren’t the only people Trump insulted during his campaign. Recently, he called for a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the US.” When confronted on this subject, he said that this would only be a temporary ban.
Insulting Carly Fiorina’s Looks – “Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?! I mean, she’s a woman, and I’m not s’posedta say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?” This is honestly one of the most disgusting things he has ever said about an individual. Thankfully, Carly was smart enough to keep it cool, and didn’t even let the comments bother her one bit.
Thoughts on Ebola – In August of last year, Trump tweeted that “The U.S. cannot allow EBOLA infected people back. People that go to far away places to help out are great-but must suffer the consequences!” Not wanting to cure sick people is not exactly something you want in a president…
Saying He’s One of The Smartest People Alive – The perfect way to end this list is probably by quoting that one time Donald Trump said “Sorry losers and haters, but my I.Q. is one of the highest – and you all know it! Please don’t feel so stupid or insecure, it’s not your fault.” You have to admit that he does know how to insult a lot of people in just one sentence though.
