Former president Donald Trump is one of the most polarizing politicians in modern history. For his supporters, everything that Trump said or did was pure gold. For others, his actions were despicable. Both sides can agree that the 45. POTUS was and continues to be hilarious, willingly or not.
Here are 20+ examples that prove these claims.
Hurricane is wet
Standing in front of the White House, Trump praised people who helped during hurricane Florence. He also explained it was a "tough" hurricane and "one of the wettest we've ever seen, from the standpoint of water."
While visiting the Economic Club of New York in September 2016, Trump stated, "It used to be cars were made in Flint, and you couldn't drink the water in Mexico. Now cars are made in Mexico, and you can't drink the water in Flint."
Before things went south
Trump's love for social media is not a secret. In 2015, he said, "I have this thing called Twitter and Facebook, which is amazing, actually. It's like owning The New York Times without the losses." He was banned by both platforms six years later.
Another confusion came in the form of "easy D." The former President tweeted, "Big increase in traffic into our country from certain areas, while our people are far more vulnerable, as we wait for what should be EASY D!" And though many believe it was "easy decision" no one ever used easy d before.
Trump vs. Soup
A video showed Trump talking about the protestors throwing soup at the police in 2020. He said the soup was "better than brick because you can't throw a brick, it's too heavy. But a can of soup, you can really put some power into that, right?"
Winning the presidential debate
After a debate with Hilary Clinton in October 2016, Trump said his biggest "opponent was the microphone." This is either brilliant or plain silly, you decide.
Always a charmer
During a Trump rally in Gilbert, a woman fainted. The then-presidential candidate told the crowd: "Maybe she fainted at how good-looking I am."
The tragedy in France, in Charlie Hebdo headquarters, shook the world. Trump, always the businessman, tweeted, "If the morons who killed all of those people at Charlie Hebdo would have just waited, the magazine would have folded – no money, no success!"
In 2012, Trump expressed how he felt about conflicts in the Middle East, tweeting, "We should have gotten more of the oil in Syria, and we should have gotten more of the oil in Iraq. Dumb leaders."
Trump's confidence is inspiring
A year later, he tweeted that his IQ was among the highest, "and you all know it." He consoled his followers, "Please don't feel so stupid or insecure, it's not your fault."
The bright side
Hurricane Florence left many people devastated. Trump went to visit the survivors and spotted a yacht. He asked a man standing near if that was his yacht. The man replied, "no," but the then-President wanted to comfort the man, so he told him, "At least you got a nice boat out of the deal."
In May 2020, Trump tested positive. Or did he? Talking to the press, Trump said he "tested very positively in another sense." He continued, "I tested positively toward negative. So. I tested perfectly this morning. Meaning I tested negative."
It is one way of looking at things
Trump had several ideas regarding the Covid 19, and some solutions were better than others. This is not the case with this statement, "When you test, you find something is wrong with people. If we didn't do any testing, we would have very few cases."
Trump was onto something
Trump suggested experts could find a way to inject light and disinfectants into humans to kill coronavirus, though he later said he was sarcastic: "Supposing you brought the light inside of the body, which you could do either through the skin or in some other way," Trump stated during the White House Covid briefing. "The whole concept of the light, the way it kills it in one minute. That's, uh, that's pretty powerful."
On March 31, 2017, the former President tweeted: "Despite the negative press covfefe." To this day, no one knows what Trump meant since it is not a word an autocorrect would suggest.
Meeting the King, Prince of Whales
In his typical manner, Trump did not proofread his statement, which in part read that he met the "Prince of Whales." The tweet was later deleted, but it must have been flattering for King Charles III to know he was once Prince of Whales.
Arguing with Greta Thunberg, 16
Greta Thunberg was named Time's Person of The Year in 2019. Former POTUS called out the then 16-year-old girl, claiming she needs to "work on her Anger Management problem."
Talking to Fox reporter Maria Bartiromo, the President claimed he permitted firing dozens of missiles on a Syrian base while eating "the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake."
Mysterious milk people
In a leaked conversation between Trump and Australian PM Malcolm Turnbull, the former POTUS expressed concerns that refugees would bring terrorism to the US. However, his wording was confusing, "They are not going to be wonderful people who go on to work for the local milk people."
Meeting the President of the US Virgin Islands
While discussing natural disasters in the USA, Trump said he visited Texas, Florida, Louisiana, and Puerto Rico. He added he met with the President of the Virgin Islands. That would be POTUS.
That Christmas call
Trump talked to a 7-year-old during Christmas, which was cute and funny until he asked the child, "Are you still a believer in Santa? 'Cause at 7, it's marginal, right?"
Trump had a message for NASA: "They should be focused on the much bigger things we are doing, including Mars (of which the Moon is a part), Defense, and Science!"
Meet Tim Apple
Apple's CEO Tim Cook and Trump had a meeting. Everything seemed fine until the then President called Mr. Cook, Tim Apple. And that's how Trump created another meme for years to come.
