Republican frontrunner Donald Trump continued his hateful rhetoric during a rally today at Macomb Community College in Warren, saying it’s not “presidential” to be “politically correct. “
The speech was a little over an hour and was disrupted at least five times by protesters.
Here are five hateful remarks by Trump, whose fiery rhetoric was met with loud applause and chants of “USA!”
- “The world’s most dishonest people – the media. They are disgusting. … They are real scum.”
- “I hate people who think they’re hot stuff, and they’re nothing,” Trump said about Mitt Romney. “He’s a dumb guy. Stupid Mitt.”
- While a protester was removed, Trump responded: “Try not to hurt him, but if you do, I will defend you in court.”
- Trump called Republican challenger Marco Rubio “little Marco” and said, “He couldn’t be elected dogcatcher.”
- “Waterboarding is absolutely fine, but we should go much further,” Trump said of torturing terrorism suspects.
