The Teflon Don Usually Lives to Fight Another Day
Donald Trump is under fire once again. A 2005 video, which honestly deserves no more viewers, recently surfaced. In said video, he made notably disgusting and misogynistic comments about women. Many high-tier Republicans are talking about withdrawing their vote for Trump. Some are calling for Pence to take over the ticket.
In reality, the one clear conclusion seems to be that the “dream” of a Trump presidency has run its course. However, many are quick to forget that the Donald is no stranger to controversy. Below, find the top 5 “disqualifying” gaffes that he survived.
1. Says Mexicans are Crime-Bringing Rapists
What better way to kick off a campaign? Upon announcing his candidacy, Trump made some questionable comments about Mexico:
When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. 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.
While it was certainly charitable of Trump to say that there were a few good-eggs mixed in with the rapists, the remarks still sparked national outcry. Already, people called for him to suspend his campaign. Despite the immediate misstep, however, Trump soldiered on unabated.
