Reasons Donald Trump Is The Absolute Worst

Trump for Terrible Human 2016™ !!!!

Posted on

1. He's been accused of rape

His ex-wife Ivana once used "rape" to describe an incident between them in 1989, and later said she felt "violated" by the experience. The accusation was made in a deposition as part of the divorce case between the two in the early 1990's, and was revealed to the public in the 1993 book Lost Tycoon: The Many Lives of Donald J. Trump, written by former Texas Weekly and Newsweek reporter Harry Hurt III. In the book, Hurt described a particular incident in which Donald, after receiving a painful scalp reduction surgery, angrily confronted Ivana, who had referred him to the plastic surgeon who'd performed the procedure, shouting things at her such as "Your fucking doctor has ruined me!" Hurt also includes a statement in his book made by Ivana, detailing the events that proceeded the confrontation. He describes in harrowing detail how "[Trump] jams his penis inside her for the first time in more than sixteen months. Ivana is terrified… It is a violent assault. ... According to versions she repeats to some of her closest confidantes, 'he raped me.'" Donald Trump quickly denied the accusation and even went on to slight Hurt and his book. According to Newsday, Trump said of the accusation "It's obviously false. It's incorrect and done by a guy without much talent… [Hurt] is a guy that is an unattractive guy who is a vindictive and jealous person." Ivana later retracted her previous accusation, saying in a statement to the Daily Beast, "I felt violated, as the love and tenderness, which he normally exhibited towards me, was absent. I referred to this as a 'rape,' but I do not want my words to be interpreted in a literal or criminal sense." Ivana has three children with Trump: Donald Jr., Ivanka and Eric, all of whom work with their father as part of the Trump Organization.

2. He's arrantly racist

He has publicly declared all Mexicans to be "rapists", and has and continues to make public threats against them. In a segment from a press conference shown on CNN, Trump is quoted as saying, "When do we beat Mexico at the border? They're laughing at us. They're bringing drugs... they're rapists." Trump also shared his thoughts on the country of Mexico in an exclusive interview with ABC News, in which he stated "Mexico does not like us, Mexico is not our friend. Mexico is the new China. Mexico will pay, you mark my words, I win, Mexico pays." He has also proposed the shutting down of all mosques in the United States, though admitting he well aware that doing so would violate the U.S. Constitution. And not only has he proposed banning all Muslims from entering the U.S., he has also targeted the religious group with a multitude of racist and demeaning remarks. Trump even went on to exclaim in a press conference how, after the terrorist attacks on the WTC Twin Towers, he "watched from Jersey City, New Jersey, where thousands and thousands of [Muslims] were cheering." Naturally, in-depth investigations were immediately conducted to determine the validity of Trump's allegations that such an incident had occurred, but no evidence was found.

3. He plans to irresponsibly expend the country's money

Trump has claimed dozens of times that is he is "a businessman" and is therefore "great with money", but he also says he wants to spend billions of dollars of our country's already rapidly dwindling budget to build a wall to stop Mexicans from entering the U.S. Keep in mind that the U.S. is currently $18.7 trillion in debt, so the additional billions of dollars he wants to spend solely for the purpose of keeping Mexicans out of this country is money we simply do not have.

4. He's misogynistic

When asked relevant and hard-hitting questions by a female reporter (Megyn Kelly of Fox News' "The Kelly File"), he rudely dismissed her and later chalked up said "rudeness" to Kelly being on her period, saying during an interview segment on live television, "She gets out and she starts asking me all sorts of ridiculous questions... You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes... blood coming out of her wherever." He also commented on the physical appearance of Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina as he watched her take a question about him on television, saying "Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that? Could you imagine that, the face of our next president?!" In 2011, he openly called attorney Elizabeth Beck "disgusting" when tried to breastfeed her infant child in public. In July 2015, Beck described the incident in in an interview with CNN. Beck states that she was representing clients who were trying to get their condominium deposits back from Trump after a failed real estate venture in 2011. She said that she had been taking a deposition from the GOP candidate when she asked for a break to pump breast milk. She then describes the confrontation between her and Trump that followed as "an absolute meltdown", saying "[He] got up, his face got red, he shook his finger at me and he screamed, 'You're disgusting, you're disgusting!' and he ran out of there."

5. He's impulsive and spiteful

"Speaking in front of hundreds at a rally in South Carolina on Tuesday, Donald Trump read a number he said people could use to reach South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham's private cell phone. Trump and Graham had already been engaging in an ongoing feud after Graham called him a "jackass," in an interview Monday with CNN's Kate Bolduan. Trump retaliated by calling Graham an "idiot" before giving out the Senator's number, and urging people to call it, saying "Give it a shot." When CNN called the number on air, it went directly to voicemail and a recorded message verified that it was indeed Graham's personal cell phone number, and that the voicemail box was full.

6. He has an impolitic attitude toward sexual assault

26,000 unreported sexual assults in the military-only 238 convictions. What did these geniuses expect when they put men & women together?

In May of 2013, following the debate surrounding a report that the majority of rape cases in the military go unreported, Trump posted a tweet from his Twitter account saying such incidents are to be expected when [the military] "put(s) men and women together." Later, in January 2015, Trump fired Celebrity Apprentice contestant Keshia Knight Pulliam, who played Rudy Huxtable on "The Cosby Show", when she refused to call Bill Cosby on television and ask him for a charity donation following the multiple accusations of rape made against him. When Trump confronted Pulliam and asked her whether or not she called Cosby, Pulliam, in tears, told Trump "I did not. I have not talked to Bill Cosby on the phone in... I don't know how long. So for me to pick up the phone, having not talked to you for five years except for when we run into each other for a Cosby event -- I feel that's not my place to do."

7. He has trivialized autism and mental illness

Trump has said that autistic children just need to be "properly disciplined", and that people that suffer from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome), depression, and other mental disorders/diseases are acting as though "they're the first generation to struggle with these issues. According to Media Matters, 'Donald Trump told right-wing radio host Michael Savage there would be 'common sense' if Trump appointed him head of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) as president. Savage has called autism 'a fraud, a racket,' said PTSD and depression sufferers are 'losers,' advised people not to get flu shots because you can't trust the government, theorized liberals have been driven insane because of seltzer bubbles, claimed President Obama was intentionally trying 'to infect the nation with Ebola'" and once told a caller he was a 'sodomite' who should 'get AIDS and die.'"

8. He satirized a reporter's disability

During a rally in South Carolina, while talking about a comment made by Serge Kovaleski, Trump waved his arms in an awkward manner, seeming to mock Kovaleski, who suffers from a chronic condition called arthrogryposis, which limits the movement of his arms.

9. His ideas resemble that of another infamous leader

Trump has proposed that all Muslims wear a badge and carry an I.D. that identifies them as Muslims, and says he wants to set up a "humane deportation force" that would rid America of Illegal immigrants entirely. Sound familiar? That's because, eerily enough, the Nazis had proposed a similar idea a similar idea, in which a "deportation force" would be utilized to exile the Jews from Europe; and, as many know, this plan was successfully carried out, and eventually escalated and ultimately resulted in the horrific genocide of millions of people.
