Trump: "Our leaders are stupid, our politicians are stupid & the Mexican government is much smarter”
Real estate mogul and current presidential hopeful, Donald Trump won last night's Republican presidential debate if by winning you mean had the most groan-worthy quotables for the 24-hour news cycle.
Some highlights from "The Donald":
On towing the GOP party line:
I can't say that I have to respect that person who wins … If I'm the nominee, I pledge I will not run as an independent.
On why we haven't secured the Mexican border:
Our leaders are stupid, our politicians are stupid and the Mexican government is much smarter.
When confronted about his history of calling women "fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals":
Only Rosie O'Donnell.
Trump's assessment of President Obama's foreign policy:
I would say he's incompetent, but I don't want to do that, because that's not nice.
