It seems like now more than ever, nobody can ever get enough of talking about Trump’s latest antics. He progressively seems to get crazier as the months pass us by. He pushes the limits with what he is able to get away with and it is obvious in his behavior and what he says.
He is very much aware of his privileged power and abuses it on a regular basis. He never actually gets reprimanded for the latest wild thing he does, he simply causes a stir among the public and carries on with his next over the top act. Let’s take a look at some of the things that have made our skin crawl over the years…
15. Stable genius
This is his most recent tweet that made the world scratch their head and squint their eyes. It is actually kind of alarming, because it is just so insane for a president to tweet this type of message. He says: “….Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart. Crooked Hillary Clinton also played these cards very hard and, as everyone knows, went down in flames. I went from VERY successful businessman, to top T.V. Star…..” … “…Being like, really smart” What?! It is really not humble and it is highly unprofessional as a president to act this way.
14. Breastfeeding is disgusting
Leave it to Donald to find a way to piss of new mothers trying to feed their children. Attorney Elizabeth Beck needed to take a break from a deposition in 2011 in order to breast pump for her new baby. When she requested her excuse, Trump allegedly yelled: “You’re disgusting! You’re disgusting!” shaking his famous finger at her. According to Trump’s camp, Beck was losing and used the excuse to pump as a way out in order to help herself. Trump later went on to tweet about the incident saying “Lawyer Elizabeth Beck did a terrible job against me, she lost (I even got legal fees). I loved beating her, she was easy.”
13. Huffington beef
It is no secret that these two do not get along. He is ruthless when it comes to publicly speaking about it, even if it about her personal life. He once tweeted: “@ariannahuff is unattractive both inside and out. I fully understand why her former husband left her for a man- he made a good decision”. It seems really harsh, but it is highly doubtful that Trump feels bad about this.
12. Global Warming
If you open your eyes to what is actually happening to this planet, it is devastating. Ice caps are melting, animals are dying quickly and severe weather is impacting our earth on a regular basis. You would think that environmental issues would be at the top of the president’s list, because considering how much pollution the USA brings to the earth, helping to solve these issues is vital. He does not believe global warming actually exists and has gone so far as to mock it recently. He warned everyone to bundle up, when extreme cold hit the east coast, and that perhaps our country could use a bit of that good old global warming. What a jerk!
11. Obama’s birth certificate
To this day, there are so many people that prefer Obama to Trump, much more! Not all presidents are perfect, but Obama definitely made a positive impact during his terms. He made history by being the first African American president ever, which was a huge step forward for America. Trump has been adamant about Obama proving where he was born. He demanded that Obama prove to the public that he in fact born in the USA and that we should see his birth certificate. It is totally insulting and really aggressive and Obama had no part in listening to his crazy conspiracies.
10. The handshakes
Oh, how can we forget the ever present and totally awkward handshakes that have happened thus far?! You would think we are trying to pick out every little thing he does, but these handshakes are so strange that it is hard to not say something. With countless other leaders, he tries to gain control and power with his handshake. He yanks the person in, pats their hand and continuously keeps shaking it. The recipients can be seen making weird faces and trying to pull away. Some leaders even try to avoid or prepare themselves in advance for these famous handshakes.
9. The solar eclipse
When natural phenomenons occur, everybody gets excited and gathers to see it. With solar eclipses, it is pretty basic knowledge that you are not suppose to look at it directly as it can cause serious damage to your eyesight. Maybe the president did not get this memo, or perhaps he thought that he was more powerful than the sun because he did exactly what you are not suppose to do. You can see countless photos and videos of the president observing the eclipse with no special glasses, pointing and looking directly at it. So far, it has caused no damage apparently, but that was one risky move.
8. Melania’s hand swat
News channels from around the world could not get enough of the presidential couple when they caught this. On two separate occasions, Melania can be seen clearly dismissing Donald’s hand when he goes to hold it publicly. Both times it was done very quickly, but not fast enough to stop people from talking about the apparent troubled marriage. After news bombarded the world about this happening, the couple in the following weeks were seen showing more affection to one another. I guess they were watching some of the fake news as well.
7. Billy Bush Interview
This is one of the most cringe worthy and shocking incidents to happen in his entire career. Right before he was elected, a mic that was turned on before an interview with Billy Bush captured a disgusting conversation. You can hear the president and how we really speaks when he thinks the cameras are not rolling. He spoke of grabbing women and just kissing them and the fact that he can do anything because he is a celebrity. The conversation really damaged his reputation, but clearly did not affect his political career, as a short while later he went on to become the president of the United States. Despicable.
6. Romance with Ivanka
Most healthy father/daughter relationships will not make people bat an eye when fatherly affection is shown to their daughter. We wish we could say the same for this family, but it is really hard to because of the things Trump says and does towards his daughter Ivanka. He has commented to Howard Stern that she has always been voluptuous. The most chilling thing he has ever said was on The View in 2006 when he said: “If Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I would be dating her.” That is just creepy and kind of too close for comfort.
5. Angela Merkel denied
This was one of the most awkward things to watch. After a meeting at Oval Office, the pair seemed to look tense and did not shake hands with each other. Trump claims the handshake snub was just a misunderstanding. Someone began to yell :”Shake hands, shake hands”, but Trump claims he did not hear this, while Merkel did and attempted the shake. Trump insists that they have a good relationship. Perhaps it was all of that fake news trying to portray something that was not really accurate.
4. Boys Scouts speech
This speech was certainly cringe worthy. What you think would be an empowering and inspiring speech for the future of America was anything but that. He pretty much rambled on about how big the crowd was and how he won the election. It really had nothing to do with his audience, but was more of a self centered speech. Some memorable quotes from this laughable speech include: “By the way, what do you think the chances are that this incredible, massive crowd, record-setting is going to be shown on television tonight? One percent or zero?”
3. Ogling women`s figures
Unfortunately, this is not one isolated incident. His ogling behavior has been going on way since before he was elected president. When he was incorporated with the Miss America pageant, countless contestants recounted him barging in the changing room when they were half dressed and unannounced. He continues to remark on women’s appearances, even into his presidential days. He even commented on the French First Lady Brigitte Macron’s figure saying: “You`re in such great shape…beautiful”. It was highly inappropriate and down right uncomfortable.
2. Inaugural dance
This was the beginning of all the awkwardness that we had not braced ourselves for or expected to see. The president and the First Lady’s first dance after the inauguration was stiff, unromantic and a train wreck to watch. In the midst of dancing, they would begin waving to the crowds, which was really weird. Their faces and body language looked really tight and the entire thing was completely unnatural. The internet had a field day making comments about one of the most awkward couple’s dance of all time.
1. The White House bail
This was the beginning of the end for the Trumps. When being greeted by the Obamas, Donald seemed to forget or care that he had a wife. Instead of walking up as a presidential couple, he left his wife to walk up the steps alone and with the gift. The Obamas actually did a better job of welcoming Melania than her own husband did. This was the first incident that paved the way for many comments about the selfish, awkward and absurd behavior of the current president of the United States of America.
