What is the most offensive thing Trump has said?
Only verified quotes, please.
That's a tough one to answer, Gable Rhoads, because there are so many that have offended so many people. What bothers me most is that thousands of people who support him are not offended by his crass, inappropriateness and just laugh it off or see it as a positive trait. I don't understand it at all. It's actually a little scary. To me, it's no longer about political correctness; it's about mass acceptance of glaring character flaws.
I guess I should have thrown in a quote. I dislike his inferring Fiorina is too ugly to be president, but I think this quote shows, as a entitled rich man, what he thinks of lower income people:
"The coal miner gets black-lung disease, his son gets it, then his son. If I had been the son of a coal miner, I would have left the damn mines. But most people don’t have the imagination—or whatever—to leave their mine. They don’t have ‘it’.”
Donald Tweets stuff like - ".@ariannahuff is unattractive both inside and out. I fully understand why her former husband left her for a man- he made a good decision."
He insults everyone - women, blacks, muslims, poor people, Jewish people, immigrants, just everyone! (except the crazy ones who worship him). Actually, he insults them too, they are just too ignorant to realize it.
Actually saying that he could kill someone and still retain all of his voting base takes the cake.
The list of offensive and repulsive comments Trump has made is endless. His ego is caressed by his obscene wealth and an entitled attitude. The following are only a few of his vile comments:
“Heidi Klum. Sadly, she's no longer a 10."
— New York Times article in August 2015
“You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her… wherever.”
— Trump of GOP debate moderator Megyn Kelly during a CNN interview in August 2015
“He’s not a war hero. He’s a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”
— of John McCain at a Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa, in July 2015
“I’ve said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”
— commenting on his entrepreneurial daughter’s attractiveness on The View in 2006
“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.”
“The beauty of me is that I’m very rich.”
The above are only a few of Trump's comments. Of course, this past weekend he also mentioned he could shoot someone and his sheep would still follow him.
I definitely don't want to see Trump anywhere near the White House.
"I am officially running for president of the United States"
And a close second is every single other word he has ever uttered.
What doesn't offend? You have to sift the through the rhetoric and look for metaphors used on the sly. I find one offensive thing he does a lot of is grimace. Rarely if ever does he smile. Smiling is something I look for for someone I want to align with. He doesn't even smile with his language especially when jesting. He laughs at instead of laughs with. That is stigmatizing, which seems to be his intent IMO.
The Donald certainly has a plethora of insults he will direct at just about any one or any group. He delivers them quite often and matter-of-factly without hesitation. He also states clearly that he will not apologize and he doesn't. Nothing seems to be off limits to Mr. Trump.
He continually brags of his massive crowds, his high poll numbers & devoted fans......not to mention his billions that prevent him from being "bought". He will viciously attack anyone & everyone who dares to make a negative comment about him.
This should all be very obvious to anyone listening. Many of his quotes have been mentioned here & I don't feel the need to search for another at the moment. There will be plenty more to come. Just stay tuned.
This is part of Trump's claim to fame & speaks of who & what he is.....so quite frankly, none of it concerns nor disturbs me.
What is extremely noteworthy to me and may be of concern to the majority of American voters, is that he is in the lead by an enormous margin, which continues to grow. He has breezed past seasoned Politicians with speed and ease, basically leaving them scrambling in the dust,
Thus Gable, for me this raises a vital question I find more curious than Trump's "quotes."
What does this glaringly tell us about ourselves, the current condition of our country and our negative attitudes toward Politicians in general?
The masses are ANGRY, disillusioned, desperate, frightened and beyond their saturation point. They are bursting at the seams with venom & vitriol for those who are responsible for the egregious break-down of our country. They see Trump as their hero who will fight hard, dirty and unrelenting, right or wrong. The more he insults, the louder he is cheered on.
While it may not be the best or most honorable of situations, it certainly appears to be what "the people" want......and it's been coming for some time now. In the coming months, we shall see what we shall see.
You mean this week, right? Because he pretty much just spews offensive things all day, every day. But I'll play along, and pick just one...
At a time when our nation is deeply concerned about gun violence, he decided to joke about it:
“I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters.”
That alone shows how out of touch he is with reality. Shooting people isn't something to joke about. It certainly isn't something our presidential candidates should find funny.
“Hillary Clinton I think is a terrific woman,” Trump told Greta Van Susteren back in 2012. “I think she really works hard. And I think, again, she’s given an agenda, it is not all of her, but I think she really works hard and I think she does a good job. I like her."
That's pretty offensive in my book, not sure if this quote was after Benghazi or not, but either way, its stomach turning.
His daughter is good looking but he is not supposed to say "I would date her if I wasn't her father." He is not supposed to say that, is he?
