A Brief Collection of the Most Offensive Things Donald Trump Has Ever Said
Start writing a post

If you are like me, or like millions of other Americans, you do not pay a ton of attention to American politics. I keep up with things that directly affect me and laws that I need to follow so I don’t get arrested, but other than that, politics, politicians, and I are not on good terms. That said, no matter how hard I try, I cannot seem to escape Donald Trump. He invades everything from my Twitter feed and Facebook to the radio stations I try to listen to in the car! With all the commotion about whatever most recent comment Trump spews into the public, I decided to look at some of his remarks for myself. If you are thinking of voting and are not quite sure why most of America is so upset with Trump, or if you just get a kick out of the absurd things politicians say, here is a compilation of the 15 most offensive things Donald Trump has said in public. A warning, though: these comments could leave you riled up and angry, or shaking your head in dismay – so have at it!

1. Rosie O’Donnell, moderator on “The View”, a prominent and well respected woman, criticized Trump while on air back in 2006. Trump responded to her comments as follows:

“Rosie O'Donnell's disgusting both inside and out. You take a look at her, she's a slob. She talks like a truck driver, she doesn't have her facts, she'll say anything that comes to her mind. Her show failed when it was a talk show, the ratings went very, very, very low and very bad, and she got essentially thrown off television. I mean, she's basically a disaster."


2. Wow, Trump seems to have an issue with powerful women! In 2012, Trump tweeted against Huffington Post co-founder Arianna Huffington. Yikes.


3. Rather than attacking specific and well known women, Trump also extended his sexist comments to include women as a group following the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants with this comment.


"You know, it doesn't really matter what [the media] write as long as you've got a young and beautiful piece of ass."


4. It is not just women in high position that Donald Trump seems to be upset about. He also had some very disturbing things to say about Mexico and immigrants.


“The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems. When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”


5. And then Trump released another alarming statement about African Americans after he was sued by the Justice Department for refusing to implement fair business practices:

"I have a great relationship with the blacks. I've always had a great relationship with the blacks."


6. And another.

“Laziness is a trait in blacks."


7. And because insulting African Americans is not enough, Trump decided he should remark on Jewish people as well.

"Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are little short guys that wear yarmulkes every day."


8. With most of his comments on immigration out of the way, Donald Trump moved into the area of foreign policy, explaining the way he runs his business with an interaction with Muammar Qaddafi as an example.

"And by the way, I can tell you something else. I dealt with Gaddafi. I rented him a piece of land. He paid me more for one night than the land was worth for two years, and then I didn't let him use the land. That's what we should be doing. I don't want to use the word 'screwed', but I screwed him. That's what we should be doing."


9. Trump also once claimed to have no need for the money he earned.

“Money was never a big motivation for me, except as a way to keep score. The real excitement is playing the game.”


10. And back to being rude to women, obviously, because with nothing better to discuss in the Republican debate this past month, Trump turned to comments about Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly being on her period:

"You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her wherever."


11. Brace yourself for this one, because our potential president may have made a reference to incest – Donald Trump has a daughter named Ivanka who is 33 years old, and when he was asked about how he would feel if Ivanka posed for Playboy, he said,


12. Gay marriage has been accepted by the majority of the country, but Trump’s position on the matter was made clear in this crude comparison with golf.

"It's like in golf. A lot of people — I don't want this to sound trivial — but a lot of people are switching to these really long putters, very unattractive. It’s weird. You see these great players with these really long putters, because they can't sink three-footers anymore. And I hate it. I am a traditionalist. I have so many fabulous friends who happen to be gay, but I am a traditionalist."


13. It is no secret that Trump does not think Obama has been the best president, but when he said this he definitely stepped over the line from just stating his opinion on a political figure to making an assumption about an entire race of people.


14. Trump also fancies himself a doctor, preaching that vaccines can cause autism, and with no evidence to back him up.



15. Even though most of the population has been disrespected by now, Trump did not stop there but continued to make sure every single American has been slighted by promoting his own intelligence.

All of these things were intentionally said or tweeted by Donald Trump. Hard to believe, I know. Hopefully the press team and clean up crew Donald Trump hired did not get offended by any of these comments and are still willing to clean up his mess. Or maybe it is better to hope they did and Trump will just fade into the political abyss. But for now, remember, one of our potential Presidents actually said these things. You make the decision.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
