Is This A Donald Trump Quote? Take The Quiz To See If You Can Pick Out The Crazy From The Fake
The biggest takeaway from Donald Trump's presidential campaign announcement was his ridiculous views on undocumented Mexican immigrants, who he called drug addicts and rapists, though "some, I assume, are good people." Since then, it's been one headline-making comment after another, the latest of which included his claim that John McCain was not a war hero. But would you be able to pick out Trump's words in a lineup of self-congratulatory and offensive quotes? Here's your chance — let's play, "Is This A Donald Trump Quote?"
On Monday, Jimmy Kimmel quizzed people on crazy Trump quotes to see whether or not they knew the words had passed The Donald's lips. Get it right, and you were rewarded with good feels. Get it wrong, and you were pathetically sprayed with water on Hollywood Boulevard. While we at Bustle don't have a digital hose to belittle you if you fail, that doesn't mean we can't put together our own little quiz of "did he, didn't he" proportions. And here we go!
"I'm Sorry That People Are Jealous Of Me. I Can't Help It That I'm So Popular."
Did Trump say this during a Fox New interview to explain how his competitors must feel about his recent boost to No. 1 in GOP polls?
NO — This one comes from none other than Mean Girls. Before her trust fall during a positive reinforcement session for the school's female students, Gretchen Wieners can't help but let everyone know just how popular she is. You remember how that one ends.
"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."
Did Trump make this Twitter PSA to praise himself at the sake of insulting others?
YES — Trump tweeted this in May 2013 (for what reason, who knows), but then again, he's never been one to shy away from tooting his own Trump-et.
"I'm, Like, A Really Smart Person."
Did Trump feel the need to remind thousands of people of his remarkable intelligence?
YES — Trump said this several times actually during a July 11 campaign rally in Phoenix. And considering the event's high attendance and enthused supporters, it seems people believe him.
"I'd Almost Forgotten You Were Here. ... I'd Introduce You, But Rumor Has It You're Almost As Famous As Me These Days."
Did Trump say this to Rand Paul at last year's Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC)?
NO — In Harry Potter And The Goblet of Fire, Lord Voldemort says this after a portkey transports Harry and Cedric Diggory from the Triwizard Tournament to a cemetery where the Dark Lord's father is buried. In June, Voldemort polled higher than most of the Republican candidates, but that was before Trump got in the race. I think we need an update.
"Oftentimes When I Was Sleeping With One Of The Top Women In The World, I Would Say To Myself, Thinking About Me As A Boy From Queens, 'Can You Believe What I Am Getting?'"
Did Trump say this in his book to teach people how to live their lives?
YES — The quote comes from his 2008 book Think Big: Make It Happen In Business And Life where he looks back on his life as a successful mogul and apparent ladies' man. You really could imagine this coming out of Wolf Of Wall Street, no?
"I Have A Great Relationship With The Blacks. I've Always Had A Great Relationship With The Blacks."
Did Trump say this to explain why race shouldn't be a factor in people's voting?
YES — During a Talk1300 radio interview, Trump used race to explain why Obama polled higher than Hillary Clinton with black voters in 2008. Calling it unfortunate, Trump appeared to indicate at the time that should he run for the White House, he wouldn't get the black votes he deserved. Guess we'll find out for sure in the primaries.
"I’m-A Get Medieval On Your Ass."
Did Trump say this to Obama after the president roasted him at the 2011 White House Correspondents' Dinner over the birth certificate conspiracy?
NO — This is what Marsellus Wallace (Ving Rhames) says in Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction after Bruce Willis' character Butch liberates him from his rapist's sex dungeon hidden below a pawn shop. Though, it wouldn't be too impossible to hear Trump say this to ISIS, undocumented immigrants, Democrats, Obama, Rosie O'Donnell, vaccinations, NBC, and pretty much every thing and every person who's ever crossed him.
