August 11, 2017: 10 More Incredibly Stupid Things Said by Politicians

politicians

A Brief History

On August 11, 1984, President Ronald Reagan said perhaps the stupidest lines of his Presidency, which we commemorated in our August 11 article, “10 Incredibly Stupid Things Said by Politicians“.  Today, we list another 10 dumb statements by the morons that are allegedly leading us through the wilderness.  As moronic as the statements by Michelle Bachman, Sarah Palin and George W. Bush were on a regular basis, our current President, Donald J. Trump, is in a class by himself, and thus dominates this year’s edition of idiotic statements by politicians. Please note that some of the quotations below were made on Twitter or elsewhere where an exact video of the quotation is unavailable. In such cases, we have posted either a video about the quotation or a video with a similar quotation.
Thank you for your understanding! Finally, a Dishonorable Mention: Just about everything said by Anthony Scaramucci during his brief tenure as White House Communication Director.

Digging Deeper

1.  “Nobody knew health care was so complicated.” – Donald Trump. 

For the love of God!  Donald, everyone in the world except you knows how complicated the health care issue is.  Trump promised he would fix many of our problems and further said how “easy” or “simple” it would be, and that he would do it faster and cheaper than anyone else.  Was he just lying on purpose or is he that ignorant of the way things are?  Either way, sad, just sad.

2. “I will build a great wall on our southern border and I will make Mexico pay for it.” – Donald Trump. 

No, he will not build a great wall and Mexico will not pay for it.  Incredibly, even dumber dialogue came out of Trump’s mouth when he spoke to the President of Mexico on the telephone and begged him to stop saying Mexico would not pay for the wall!  Mexicans that want to enter the US can just come through the regular border crossings and say they are visiting this attraction or that attraction, and then just not go home.  A wall will not stop that!

3. “You know what they say about men with small hands…” – Senator Marco Rubio. 

This idiot thought that by descending to kindergarten insults about his opponent, Donald Trump, he would win over the public voters?  What a low class thing to say, something we’d expect from Donald Trump!

4. “My fingers are long and beautiful, as, it has been well documented, are various other parts of my body.” – Donald Trump.

Responding to Marco Rubio’s juvenile taunt, Trump missed a chance to gain the high ground, but showing his deep, deep insecurity, The Donald responded back by bragging about the size of his sexual organ.  The funny thing is, I have looked at numerous pictures of Donald Trump and he does not seem to have small hands or small hands for his size.  Why even answer such a low class smear?  Because he cannot help himself.  And by the way, “well documented?”  By whom?

5. “I thought being President would be easier than my old life.” – Donald Trump.

Once again, the Trumpster shows that he has no idea about what a President does or should do, and no idea about how the US Government works.  Most tweens and teens would say being President is a hard, demanding job, and Trump thought it would be a breeze!

6. “Despite the constant negative press covfefe” – Donald Trump.

We guess this Tweet was a product of Trump falling asleep late at night while tweeting, but who knows?  Maybe “covfefe” is a word on the planet he if from!  The Tweet last for 6 hours before being pulled, proving that no adults are monitoring what little Donald is up to.

7. “Why can’t we use nuclear weapons?” – Donald Trump. 

Again, proof that Trump has absolutely zero knowledge of history, foreign affairs, the military, technology, diplomacy, laws or anything else an adult should know.  He reportedly asked this question 3 times during a foreign affairs briefing.  Especially scary in light of the North Korea saber rattling crisis!

8. “I always wanted to get the Purple Heart. This was much easier.” – Donald Trump. 

When a veteran that had earned a Purple Heart presented it to President Trump, The Donald accepted the gift (which most people believe he should have graciously declined) and made his idiotic statement.  Idiotic coming from a draft dodger that got deferments for school and then for phony bone spurs in a heel, but he does not remember which heel!

9. “I think I am actually humble. I think I’m much more humble than you would understand.” – Donald Trump. 

Believe me, Don, we know exactly how ‘humble’ you are!

10. “…to you and all the other millions and millions of people that came out and voted for Make America Great Again.” – Donald Trump. 

This time, Trump was addressing the Boy Scouts, that is “boy” as in not yet a “man,” meaning it is unlikely many of those Boy Scouts voted for Trump or anyone else.

Bonus! Every time Donald Trump comments on how unattractive a woman is, or how beneath his standards she is, he is oblivious as to just how crass and low class such statements are, shockingly so for a President of the United States and incredible for one that was brought up rich and going to the best schools.  “If Hillary Clinton cannot satisfy her husband, what makes her think she can satisfy America?”  Inappropriately rating the looks of women, especially women politicians and older women, is proof of self-unawareness, as in, Trump does not seem to realize that any normal woman of a young and attractive age would find HIS appearance to be disgusting, a 70 year old, wrinkled, fat, lumpy and bizarre hairdo geek with fake looking orange skin and racoon eyes.  The terrible and bizarre things Trump says about women on a regular basis is a body of work in and of itself.

“But I don’t want to go among mad people," Alice remarked. "Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat: "we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad." "How do you know I’m mad?" said Alice. "You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn’t have come here.” ― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

    Judging from the contents of this article, I would say your bias is showing beyond all doubt. No attempt to be objective at all. Pathetic.

    • Bias? Even hard core Republicans and Conservatives are claiming Trump does not have the knowledge, character, morals, or demeanor to be President. If you do not understand why the things we cited are stupid, you may have a problem yourself! Stupid is as stupid does, and these cases, Trump was being stupid. On the other hand, we agree with the President 100% that the Antifa/BLM/Liberal counter-protesters at Baltimore that were throwing pop cans filled with cement, water bottles filled with urine and feces, Macing the protesters and showed up themselves with clubs and shields were also at fault for the violence. We also agree with Trump that the media is totally ignoring these facts and pretending only the Nazi/KKK/White Supremacist crowd was violent.
