Because Donald Trump has continuously polled as the top Republican presidential candidate, the country has anxiously awaited the first GOP debate to see how he'll stack up against his nine components on stage. Well, the time has finally come and, to all of our amusement, Trump's wacky side made a few appearances. Trump's craziest moments during the GOP debate definitely made the Fox News broadcast more entertaining, because only Trump would say such outrageous things during a presidential debate seen by millions of people.
As Trump's campaign keeps gaining more support, many people are wondering, "Do we really live in a world where Donald Trump could be the next president of the United States?" One thing's for sure, he would be the most controversially outspoken president there ever was. From saying Mexicans are bringing drugs, crime, and rapists to America to comparing Obamacare to a Nazi policy, Trump's 2016 campaign has already been full of insane moments, and the GOP debate was no different. Of course, the other debaters — Jeb Bush, Scott Walker, Mike Huckabee, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Chris Christie, and John Kasich — had some crazy moments as well, but no one can out-crazy Trump.
Here are the craziest Trump moments from the first GOP debate Thursday.
1. "I will not make the pledge at this time."
Right off the bat, Trump caused controversy by refusing to pledge that he won't run an independent campaign if he doesn't get the Republican nomination.
2. "Only Rosie O'Donnell."
When Megyn Kelly asked Trump about his history of degrading women, this was his response. Classy.
3. "If it weren't for me, you wouldn't even be talking about illegal immigration Chris."
Chris Wallace asked Trump for evidence that Mexico is sending America its worst people, but of course he had none.
4. "I had the good sense to leave Atlantic City, which by the way, Caesars just went bankrupt. Chris [Christie] can tell you."
When asked about some of his failed business ventures, Trump turned the attacks to Chris Christie. Mind your own business pal.
5. "To Hillary Clinton, I said, ‘Be at my wedding,’ and she came to my wedding."
Why Trump wanted Clinton at his wedding is a real head-scratcher.
6. "I have a great, great company!"
Trump got heated when responding to criticisms about his business sense.
7. "That child today is a total superstar and a great, great child."
Apparently Trump changed his mind about abortion because his friends who planned on having an abortion, didn't, and because their kid turned out alright, he now opposes it altogether. He's also all about the double-great for added effect.
8. "Thank you."
After Mike Huckabee seemingly attacked Trump in his closing statement, but then added that he was talking about Hillary Clinton at the last minute, Trump yelled "thank you" at the former Arkansas governor from off camera. Awkward.
9. "We can't do anything right."
I'm sorry America is so disappointing to you Trump.
