These would be hilarious if he wasn’t running for president. And yes, they are all from Trump. All quotes were taken from this NPR transcript.
1. On Hillary’s plan to fight ISIS:
DONALD TRUMP: “… No wonder you’ve been fighting ISIS your entire adult life.”
Um, ISIS hasn’t been around that long.
2. On the allegation that he hasn’t paid his taxes:
HILLARY CLINTON: “… Or maybe he does not want the American people, all of you watching tonight, to know that he has paid nothing in federal taxes because the only years that anybody has ever seen for a couple of years where he had to turn them over to state authorities when he was trying to get a casino license. And they showed he did not pay any federal income tax.”
DONALD TRUMP: “That makes me smart.”
No, if that’s true, it makes you a criminal.
3. On how to mend race relations.
DONALD TRUMP: “… Now, whether or not in a place like Chicago, you do stop and frisk which worked very well Mayor Giuliani is here worked very well in New York.”
LESTER HOLT: “Your two minutes have expired but I do want to follow up. Stop and Frisk was ruled unconstitutional in New York because it largely singled out black and Hispanic young men.”
DONALD TRUMP: “No, you’re wrong. It went before a judge who was a very against police judge.”
Because using a police practice that was found unconstitutional and racist to mend race relations makes total sense. Also, federal judges work to protect and uphold the constitution, not to take down the police.
4. On cyber security:
DONALD TRUMP: “… I have a son — he’s ten years old. He has computers. He is so good with these computers. It’s unbelievable.”
How is this even relevant? But I’m glad his son is a savant with computers.
DONALD TRUMP: “… But I will say, we are not doing the job we should be doing. But that’s true throughout our whole governmental society. We have so many things that we have to do better, Lester. And certainly cyber is one of them.”
I don’t think he knows what the verb “cyber” commonly means, but hey, we should get better at it.
5. On how the fact checkers are wrong:
DONALD TRUMP: “Wrong.”
This got old real quick.
