At 12:00 p.m. on Friday, January 20 2017, Donald Trump will be inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States. God, it feels weird typing that out. Love him or hate him, that crazy, orange bastard actually did it.
While I rarely agree with what comes out of Trump’s mouth, I can’t deny that he does have the gift of gab. The man is a great speaker and people are clearly drawn to his boldness. He has the cockiness of a prize fighter, and he’s not afraid to stir the pot with outlandish statements.
In honor of his inauguration, let’s take a look at some of Trump’s best quotes and most famous sayings. Some will be profound, some will be funny, and some will be absolutely absurd. Enjoy!
“Sometimes your best investments are the ones you don’t make.”
“You have to think anyway, so why not think big?”
“I’m just a f—— businessman.”
“Happy #CincoDeMayo! The best taco bowls are made in Trump Tower Grill. I love Hispanics!”
“Get going. Move forward. Aim High. Plan a takeoff. Don’t just sit on the runway and hope someone will come along and push the airplane. It simply won’t happen. Change your attitude and gain some altitude. Believe me, you’ll love it up here.”
“Show me someone without an ego, and I’ll show you a loser.”
“The show is ‘Trump.’ And it is sold-out performances everywhere.”
“If someone attacks you, do not hesitate. Go for the jugular.”
“If you’re interested in ‘balancing’ work and pleasure, stop trying to balance them. Instead make your work more pleasurable.”
“I will be so good at the military your head will spin.”
“I have a great relationship with the blacks.”
“Sorry losers and haters, but my I.Q. is one of the highest -and you all know it! Please don’t feel so stupid or insecure, it’s not your fault.”
“An ‘extremely credible source’ has called my office and told me that Barack Obama’s birth certificate is a fraud.”
“Meryl Streep, one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood, doesn’t know me but attacked last night at the Golden Globes. She is a Hillary flunky who lost big. For the 100th time, I never “mocked” a disabled reporter (would never do that) but simply showed him “groveling” when he totally changed a 16 year old story that he had written in order to make me look bad. Just more very dishonest media!”
“I will build a great wall – and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me – and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.”
“Without passion you don’t have energy, without energy you have nothing.”
“All of the women on The Apprentice flirted with me – consciously or unconsciously. That’s to be expected.”
