10 times Donald Trump proved nobody can beat him at stupidity

The God of Small Minds, Donald Trump, has done it again. And by again we mean something stupid. But you knew that already, didn't you? Once synonymous with terrible TV shows and a Johnny Bravo-meets-blonde-candyfloss haircut, the name Trump now only brings terrible quotable quotes to mind.


Ranked from bad to worse to cannot-believe-he's-still-allowed-to-talk, here are 10 times we've not been okay Mr Trump's existence.

When he called Obama a 'closet Muslim'
"He may have one but there's something on that, maybe religion, maybe it says he is a Muslim. I don't know. Maybe he doesn't want that. Or he may not have one. I will tell you this: if he wasn't born in this country, it's one of the great scams of all time."


Eh. What? What's that even supposed to mean? Obama's a closet Muslim? His birth is a scam? His birth certificate is a lie? So many questions.

When he taunted Hillary Clinton using Monika Lewinsky

Because, logic or sensitivity are not his strong suits. A potty mouth is.

When he thought handling ISIS and air-conditioning is the same deal
"Some of the candidates, they went in and didn't know the air conditioner didn't work and sweated like dogs, and they didn't know the room was too big because they didn't have anybody there. How are they going to beat ISIS?"

How indeed? By sending them a gift-wrapped Trump. That's how.


When he turned Lannister on his own daughter
"I've said if Ivanka weren't my daughter, perhaps I'd be dating her."

EEEWW. Clearly that mop on your head isn't the grossest thing about you, Trump.


When he realised everything is made in China
"The concept of global warming was created by China, in order to make US manufacturing non-competitive."

OH. WOW. #SlowestClapEver


This tweet. This. Stupid. Tweet.

Something tells me Trump himself came up with this data. #WhatDaPhuc

Trump-racist tweet
When he had bad, bad thoughts about Mexico
"When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best," he declared in June. "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."

When in doubt, generalise. When not in doubt, generalise. In fact, as a rule, just keep generalising.


When he wanted his own version of The Wall
"We're going to do a wall; we're going to have a big, fat beautiful door on the wall; we're going to have people come in, but they're going to come in legally. Mexico's going to pay for the wall. I love the Mexican people; I respect the Mexican leaders, but their leaders are much sharper, much smarter and more cunning than our leader."

And who will be the Knight's Watch? Ex-contestants of The Apprentice? #OHMYGOD #SomebodyShutHimUp


When he wanted Muslims IDs
Years down the line, when someone studies the desperate times we live in, this shall forever be known as the time when the collective IQ of the world went down several notches every time Trump spoke.

First, he called for a Muslim ID, or a registry for all Muslims in the US and when thousands of doctors, soldiers and public servants tweeted out their official work IDs, he denied ever saying it. #YoTrumpSoSilly

When he made fun of a disabled journalist
There is a special place in hell for those who make fun of disabled people. Talking about journalist Serge Kovaleski, and an article he wrote about the 9/11 attacks which debunked Trump's claim that he'd seen Arabs celebrating after the World Trade Centre came crashing down, Trump said, "...you've got to see this guy. Ah, I don't know what I said! I don't remember!" while bending his right hand and jerking it.

Kovaleski suffers from arthrogryposis which causes limbs to become permanently stiff. Watch:

Wow. If this is who America picks to be their next President, can we pre-order apocalypse?

Shut up, Trump. Just shut up.
