10 Donald Trump Quotes That Proves He's The Egotistical Jock We All Hated In High School

He has no idea what he's talking about but still says it confidently.


People these days love to compare our Republican front-runner Donald Trump to lots of things: toddlers, dictators, etc. But honestly, Donald Trump is just exactly like that stupid popular jock that everyone hated in high school. Here are 10 Trump quotes that prove it:

1. "I was down there, and I watched our police and our firemen, down on 7-11, down at the World Trade Center, right after it came down."

When a jock is talking in class and has no idea what he's talking about, but still says it completely confidently. In this case, Mr. Trump really should know what he's talking about, considering he's running for, I don't know, President.

2. "Look at those hands, are they small hands? And, [Republican rival Marco Rubio] referred to my hands: 'If they're small, something else must be small.' I guarantee you there's no problem. I guarantee."

Our favorite things jocks do—compare hands. A mark of their manhood or whatever, they think it gives them value. Having the biggest hands among one another helps them figure out the alpha, it's just childish to see it among Republican presidential candidates. Maybe we should focus on the validity of their policies instead of the size of their hands.

3. “I have so many fabulous friends who happen to be gay, but I am a traditionalist."

We've heard this one a thousand times. "Well my bro is gay and that's alright, but it's just not my thing." Well, buddy, it doesn't have to be your thing or your value. Why? Their choice in who they love has absolutely zero effect on you. Same with you, Trump.

4. "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."

When a jock gets a C+ on his test. So proud. We all feel inferior.

5. "My Twitter has become so powerful that I can actually make my enemies tell the truth."

When they drop major fire on Twitter like some sick basketball scores or subtweets about hot girls. Too sick guys. Too sick. But in the Trumpsters case, he likes to tweet about racism and hatred. Too sick dude.

6. "I think the only difference between me and the other candidates is that I’m more honest and my women are more beautiful.”

When a jock talks himself up to other people. We get it bud. You're great and pull all the hotties. But being a total jerk and being honest are not the same thing.

7. "I have never seen a thin person drinking Diet Coke."

Sorry, we don't all drink protein shakes for breakfast, lunch and dinner and compare abs in the mirror at the gym, bro.

8. “The beauty of me is that I’m very rich.”

When the jock pays for McDonald's for the whole squad. Make it rain, buddy.

9. "It’s freezing and snowing in New York—we need global warming!”

When a jock thinks he can solve the world's problems. Aw, you're just so full of good ideas. Especially the ones that doom mankind.

10. “All of the women on "The Apprentice" flirted with me—consciously or unconsciously. That’s to be expected."

When they are the ultimate lady killer. As attractive as your giant ego is, women probably aren't as obsessed with you as you are with yourself. Actually, it would be nearly impossible for the ladies to obsess over you like you obsess over yourself.

Donald, we get it now. We understand where you're coming from. You just never left high school. But here's the problem, you're not trying out for the basketball team, you're running for president. Time to take off your Nike pros and put on a business suit. This should be interesting.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

You've heard a lot of possible outcomes thrown around, let's break them down.

If you log into any social media app, you will be overwhelmed with self-appointed experts, preaching the correct way to end this coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic from the comfort of their La-Z-Boy chair. Aside from those dramatic children on TikTok, it's all anyone can talk about. There's an obvious reason for this — the pandemic has taken our world and flopped it on its head, bringing confusion, angst, and an obnoxious amount of sourdough bread into our lives.

All this to say, it's easy to get lost amidst the storm of arguments online. Instead, it's best to break down what's actually going on so we can have an educated perspective as we look to work together to move past our current predicament.

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.
