Trump has said a lot of stupid things lately. Here are the highlights.

10 Dumbest Things Trump Has Said

First Donald Trump just said, "You're fired." Then he ran for president and his quotes have gotten more and more outrageous over time. Here are just a few of the highlights.

1. "Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing. I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press."

You know the election isn't going well when the Republican nominee tries to bribe a foreign government to hack into U.S. email servers. Some consider this treason. Trump later said that he was being "sarcastic." But was he really? Either way, not his finest moment.

2. "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."

Ok, Trump we get it. You're anti-immigration. But do you really think that the vast majority of Mexican immigrants are "rapists"? Even you can't be that ignorant.

3. "My fingers are long and beautiful, as it has been well documented, are various other parts of my body."

Trump? Are you really making a sexual innuendo during a Republican presidential debate? It's kind of scary that he still managed to beat all of the other candidates.

4. "He's not a war hero. He's a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren't captured." (About John McCain.)

Hey Trump, pretty sure you don't know what it's like at all to be on the front lines during a war. Not up to you to decide who a war hero is and who isn't.

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

Well, the use of the word "fabulous" is questionable and I don't think traditional values really control if you're gay.

6. "I've said if Ivanka weren't my daughter, perhaps I'd be dating her."

A. She is your daughter. B. You're married. C. Just. Stop.

7. "Sorry losers and haters, but 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."

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F05%2F636060041544035918486004413_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=32&h=02ff750e299d411050203bd7461052c4d0323e4e3650f8525993d6cae76be145&size=980x&c=3921885200 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F05%252F636060041544035918486004413_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D32%26h%3D02ff750e299d411050203bd7461052c4d0323e4e3650f8525993d6cae76be145%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3921885200%22%7D" expand=1]

If your IQ is higher than your haters, then they must have really low IQs.

8. "I don't wear a rug. It's mine. And I promise not to talk about your mass of plastic surgeries that didn't work."

I don't know, Trump. You sound pretty insecure about that hair of yours.

9. "If Hillary can't satisfy her husband, what makes her think she can satisfy America?"

Wow! Because the state of someone's marriage is totally related to how well they can run the country! Not.

10. "It's freezing and snowing in New York. We need global warming!"

So I'm pretty sure Trump skipped at least part of kindergarten. So, Trump, there are these things called seasons and one of them is winter. That's what you were experiencing in New York! And, by the way, global warming is a bad thing.

We all know Trump says dumb things from time to time, but it's actually incredible how many ridiculous things he's said. Good luck to us all if he becomes president and attempts international diplomacy.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."


In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."
