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!”
7. About The Riots In Baltimore
Donald Trump has criticized President Barack Obama every step of the way throughout his presidency. Back in 2015, he decided to blame President Obama for the riots in Baltimore, while singling out his race, with this stunning quote: “Our great African-American President hasn’t exactly had a positive impact on the thugs who are so happily and openly destroying Baltimore.”
6. About Mexicans
Nothing will echo louder than Donald Trump’s first speech he made when he announced he was running for President. During the speech he discussed what he was going to do to make America great again, and singled out Mexican people as the cause of America’s troubles. “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending the best. They’re not sending you, they’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists… And some, I assume, are good people.”
5. About The Authenticity Of President Obama’s Birth Certificate
Many have argued that Donald Trump’s campaign was built on the fire he started in 2012 when he criticized President Obama’s birth certificate. At the time he said, “An ‘extremely credible source’ has called my office and told me that Barack Obama’s birth certificate is a fraud.”
4. About Rosie O’Donnell
Donald Trump and Rosie O’Donnell have had a back and forth feud for years, but this quote takes the cake, and became a huge tool for Hillary Clinton during her campaign against Mr. Trump. “If I were running ‘The View’, I’d fire Rosie O’Donnell. I mean, I’d look at her right in that fat, ugly face of hers, I’d say ‘Rosie, you’re fired.’”
3. About Being A Ladies Man
According to The Donald, he’s got some serious game with the ladies. In fact, he once bragged about being so irresistible to them, that he said all of the female contestants on his show “The Apprentice,” flirted with him. “All of the women on ‘The Apprentice’ flirted with me – consciously or unconsciously. That’s to be expected.”
2. About What’s Below The Belt
When Republican rival Marco Rubio criticized Donald Trump’s small hands, it struck a chord with Trump so much that he decided to talk about what was below his belt. “Look at those hands, are they small hands? And, [Marco Rubio] referred to my hands: ‘If they’re small, something else must be small.’ I guarantee you there’s no problem. I guarantee.”
1. About Global Warming
You know who doesn’t understand anything about global warming? You guessed it: President-elect Donald Trump. He once tweeted about New York’s cold weather being the reason behind us needing global warming. “It’s freezing and snowing in New York – we need global warming!” Keep in mind Donald Trump has lived in New York his whole life.
So there you have it, folks. Those were the 12 most outrageous quotes from president-elect Donald Trump. The most interesting tidbit, is that with all of Trump’s sound bites and tweets it would’ve been easy to fill up a book of quotes from the future President of the United States.
While some of these quotes went on to offend groups of people, others made for some good comedy on late night television. If you would like to see more outrageous and downright disturbing quotes from Donald J.
