It’s been a long two years for president-elect Donald Trump. Throughout his bid to become President of the United States, there has been enormous media coverage on every speech he’s given, every Trump rally, every Twitter tirade, and of course, we can’t forget the debates. Love him or hate him, Donald Trump speaks his mind, and because of that, he has made some doozy sound bites. Some have said that Trump is fueled by his own narcissism and big ratings, and there could be something to that. We all know that to bring in ratings or to incite a large crowd, sometimes you have to get a little outrageous, for better or for worse.
Check out the 12 most outrageous things Donald Trump has ever said. Oh, and you can’t blame us if #3 triggers your gag reflex. You’ve been warned!
12. About The 2005 Leaked Video Tape
After getting caught joking about sexual assault in a leaked videotape from 2005, president-elect Donald Trump pointed the finger at former president Bill Clinton’s own sketchy history. “This was locker room banter, a private conversation that took place many years ago. Bill Clinton has said far worse to me on the golf course – not even close. There’s never been anybody in the history of politics that has been so abusive to women.”
11. Building A Wall
One of Donald Trump’s most widely criticized policy ideas is the wall to keep illegal immigrants from entering the United States. Perhaps because his plan was laid out in this fashion: “I will 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 make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.”
10. Nasty Woman
During the last presidential debate against democrat Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump called Hillary a “nasty woman,” while she was talking about entitlement reform. During that same debate, he defended his stance on women and said, “Nobody has more respect for women than I do.” The crowd reacted by laughing at Mr. Trump’s bold statement.
9. About Ariana Huffington
Mr. Trump has been called out on several occasions for the way he talks about women. Ariana Huffington didn’t escape his wrath as he discussed her looks. “Ariana Huffington is unattractive, both inside and out. I fully understand why her former husband left her for a man – he made a good decision.”
8. On Kristen Stewart And Robert Pattinson’s Cheating Scandal
When Kristen Stewart was caught cheating on Robert Pattinson with director Rupert Sanders, fans were sending crying Vines and making dramatic YouTube videos. President-elect Donald Trump took the news so seriously that he hopped on Twitter to express his solidarity for Team Pattinson. At the time, he tweeted: “Robert Pattinson should not take back Kristen Stewart. She cheated on him like a dog & will do it again–just watch. He can do much better!”
