230 Things Donald Trump Has Said and Done That Make Him Unfit to Be President
How many times has Donald Trump disqualified himself from holding the most powerful job in the world? You be the judge.
It has been 13 months since Donald Trump announced his presidential bid and, in the same speech, called Mexican immigrants rapists. The ensuing drip feed of Trumpian absurdities and offenses has had a desensitizing effect. We know that Trump is a racist, a misogynist, an authoritarian, and a narcissist, but we’ve lost track of the many, many specific things he has said and done that disqualify him from the office he seeks.
So we have compiled a list of specific things that make Trump an unacceptable candidate for the presidency. Some are policy proposals that should be outside the bounds of debate, like punitive torture. Some are casual vulgarities, like his description of Rosie O’Donnell. You might not agree that each individual item on the list is disqualifying in isolation—you can vote those down, and vote up the ones you find especially egregious—but the list’s cumulative weight makes its own statement.
Disclaimer: Trump contradicts himself a lot. Not all of the policy positions listed here reflect his current thinking on a given subject. You’ll have to decide for yourself whether you find that reassuring.
Update, Aug. 1, 2016: We originally listed 141 items here. But Trump doesn’t stop saying and doing unpresidential things, so we’ll continue to update the list through Election Day. New items will appear at the top of the list under “Recent Trump Moments” for a while, until they are replaced by fresher instances of self-disqualification.
Though from a Liberal source Slate does have VIDEO AND ORIGINAL sourcing for these 230 offenses…some are only offenses IF you’re a Liberal. BUT 99% of them ARE GENUINE reasons why DT IS UNFIT to be dogcatcher of Hooftrott, Kentucky, let alone the U.S. President.
