From ‘grab them by the pussy’ to ‘I will build a great wall and Mexico will pay for it.” Let’s recap the Trumpiest quotes by the man and legend himself, Donald J Trump. Some of these are not for the faint of heart, such as his comment on Hillary Clinton’s lack of being able to satisfy her man. Read on for more!
Number 10 – “I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters.”
While New York might be used to people getting shot at, this statement still managed to shock many with the President’s complete disregard for unity. Trump doesn’t care! He sticks to his base and doesn’t bother persuading those snowflakes at Silicon Valley! If you don’t like it? Tough luck buddy!
Number 9 – “I think the only difference between me and the other candidates is that I’m more honest and my women are more beautiful.”
This was said in a Republican debate, much to the surprise of his opponents (and probably the audience). Trump wasn’t afraid to express his opinion on why he was the best among the candidates. He had no qualms about his women’s appearances or their character, because as far as he is concerned, he is the only one who can do things right.
And by doing things right, he probably means grabbing them by the pussy!
Number 8 – “I have a great relationship with the blacks.”
Trump’s opinion on racial equality has been made apparent throughout his campaign, the man is just a pure self declared saint. He’s a man of integrity, who wouldn’t bat an eye for employing ‘the blacks’ in his minimum wage service!
Even Kanye ‘ye’ West loves him! And when has ‘Ye’ ever been wrong about anything? Exactly, never!
Number 7 – “I will build a great wall and Mexico will pay for it.”
This might be one of the most notorious quotes that Trump has uttered in his time as President. His attempt at making America an unbreachable fortress was met with much unwarranted criticism even from us at BrickingitforCanada. “What about shovels, and ladders? And airplanes?” So what! What about catapults! It’s a perfect wall. Look at the great wall of China, when’s the last time you saw a Mexican in there? I’m telling you it works!
Number 6 – “I have the world’s greatest memory. It’s one thing everybody agrees on.”
Trump is known for being a little too confident in his abilities, and this quote shows that perfectly. He thinks he has the ‘world’s greatest memory’. And why not! Everything he remembers, he remembers 100% of the time. You can’t argue with that logic can you? Well you can try, but he wouldn’t remember it afterwards.
Number 5 – “My IQ is one of the highest — and you all know it! Please don’t feel so stupid or insecure; it’s not your fault.”
As if we needed any more proof that Trump is a genius, this quote should be enough to convince you. He has an IQ higher than all of us combined, and yet he still manages to be humble about it. What a guy!
Number 4 – “I will be the greatest jobs president that God ever created.”
This is yet another example of Trump’s overflowing confidence in himself. He had promised to be the greatest job creator, a feat that has proven quite difficult for other Presidents. But as we all know, if anyone can do it, Trump can! Does this include fictional presidents such as the guy from 24? The guy from the West Wing? Only Trump knows!
Number 3 – “I think that putting a wife to work is a very dangerous thing.”
This is one of the more controversial quotes by Trump, which did not sit too well with many people. However it makes sense! Trump knows from all of his TV shows and business ventures that no woman is safe from the appeal of the rich and powerful. Just look at Monica Lewinsky! She had no chance standing up to Bill Clinton, which is quite evident as she was mostly on her knees as we learnt later.
Number 2 – “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever.”
Ah yes, the infamous Megyn Kelly quote. This was Trump’s response to a question posed by the journalist during one of the debates. He thought it would be appropriate to make a comment about her menstrual cycle and what effect it had on her demeanor. Classy! Who are we to judge him? Trump knows all about women, maybe they secretly bleed out of their eyes?
Finally, Number 1 – “I like people who weren’t captured.”
It’s hard to pick a number 1, but John McCain being called a ‘loser’ because he spent 5 years in a prison camp as a POW could potentially take the gold. Only losers go to war, and only the biggest losers go to war and get captured by the enemy. Trump is a winner, and therefore prefers the sidelines.
I hope you enjoyed our list of the legendary things Trump said in the past!
