Donald Trump has been in the public eye for much of his career. The real estate mogul has appeared in thirteen movies since 1989, did countless interviews promoting books, casinos, golf courses and the Miss Universe pageants. He was a loved character though out much of his early career. People liked his cocky, pompous attitude and sometimes ridiculous statements he made in public.
With the rise of social media, Donald Trump has taken full advantage of utilizing platforms to make statements. His preferred social media platform for communication is Twitter. His first tweet on May 4, 2009, was as boring and bland as any, “Be sure to tune in and watch Donald Trump on Late Night with David Letterman as he presents the Top Ten List tonight!” But something changed two years later, his Tweet volume increased 4x in 2011. It is believed that those tweets were no longer bland public relation director Tweets but from Trump himself.
On January 20, 2017, Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. Now, those same cocky and sometimes ridiculous statements are made from the President of the United States. And no matter what side of the political spectrum you sit on, there is no denying that Donald Trump’s tweet and comments sometimes serves a very real and legitimate purpose in our society; providing comedic fodder.
On response to global warming Trump stated, “It’s really cold outside, they are calling it a major freeze, weeks ahead of normal. Man, we could use a big fat dose of global warming!”
And that’s just the beginning of Trump’s seemingly endless supply of funny and sometimes insane quotes. Read more ridiculous quotes from Donald Trump.

“I think Viagra is wonderful if you need it if you have medical issues if you’ve had surgery. I’ve just never needed it. Frankly, I wouldn’t mind if there were an anti-Viagra, something with the opposite effect. I’m not bragging. I’m just lucky. I don’t need it. I’ve always said, ‘If you need Viagra, you’re probably with the wrong girl.”‘

“I think the only difference between me and the other candidates is that I’m more honest, and my women are more beautiful.”

4. Donald Trump Quotes on the Past
“In life you have to rely on the past, and that’s called history.”
Little known fact, there was actually not a name for it until Trump informed the world at large that it was called “history.” Before Trump, everybody just called it “that stuff that happened that one time.”
3.) Trump on Race Relations
“I have a great relationship with the blacks.”
Well, obviously. After all, if he didn’t, he wouldn’t be so aware of their secret preference to be collectively referred to as “the Blacks.” But as we all know orange is the new black.
2.)Trump on Obama’s Birthplace
“I have people that have been studying [Obama’s birth certificate] and they cannot believe what they’re finding… I would like to have him show his birth certificate, and can I be honest with you, I hope he can. Because if he can’t—if he can’t—if he wasn’t born in this country, which is a real possibility—then he has pulled one of the great cons in the history of politics.”
With this quote, Trump considers the serious possibility that Obama became the leader of the free world simply by being the craftiest grifter around.
1.) Trump on Gay Marriage
“It’s like in golf. A lot of people — I don’t want this to sound trivial — but a lot of people are switching to these really long putters, very unattractive. It’s weird. You see these great players with these really long putters because they can’t sink three-footers anymore. And, I hate it. I am a traditionalist. I have so many fabulous friends who happen to be gay, but I am a traditionalist.”
That’s right, he doesn’t want to make it sound trivial, but he could have just come out and said: “I believe marriage is between a rich guy and his much younger third wife.”
