12 Cringeworthy Things Donald Trump Said During His Press Conference

Be first to like this.

Donald Trump just gave his first press conference in 167 days.

While we couldn’t be there in person (our invite must have gotten lost in the mail), we did sit through the hour-long press conference on Facebook Live so you wouldn’t have to.

Here are 12 things that made our eyes roll out of our skulls and onto on the floor.

1. On jobs:

“We’re going to create jobs. I said that I will be the greatest jobs producer that God ever created, and I mean that.”

2. On Obamacare:

“Frankly, we could sit back — and it was a thought from a political standpoint, it would to the people — we could sit back and wait and watch and criticize. And we could be a Chuck Schumer and sit back and criticize it and people would come — and would come begging to us — please, have easily about Obamacre. We don’t want to own it. We don’t want to own it politically. Obamacare is the Democrats problem. We are going to take the problem off the shelves for them. Were doing them a tremendous service by doing it. We could sit back and let them hang with it.”

3. On the border:

“We don’t even have a border. It is like an open sieve.”

4. To a reporter:

“It’s not a fence. It’s a wall. You just misreported it.”

5. To another reporter:

“You are fake news!”

6. On ISIS:

“I mean, if you look, this administration created ISIS by leaving at the wrong time.”

7. On Putin:

“Well, if Putin likes Donald Trump, I consider that an asset not a liability.”

8. This silly gaffe:

“Run the company… country.”

9. On his tax returns:

“The only one that cares about my tax returns are the reporters.”

10. On hacking being OK:

“But remember this. We talk about the hacking. And hacking’s bad. And it shouldn’t be done. But look at the things that were hacked. Look at what was learned from that hacking. That Hillary Clinton got the questions to the debate and didn’t report it?  That’s a horrible thing. That’s a horrible thing. Can you imagine that if Donald Trump got the questions to the debate? It would have been the biggest story in the history of stories.”

11. On traveling as a celebrity:

“When I leave our country I’m a very high profile person, wouldn’t you say? I am extremely careful. I’m surrounded by bodyguards. I’m surrounded by people. And I always tell them, anywhere, but I always tell them, if I’m leaving this country, “Be very careful. Because in your hotel rooms — and no matter where you go, you’re gonna probably have cameras. I’m not referring just to Russia, but I would certainly put them in that category — and number one I hope you’re going to be good anyway. But in those rooms you have cameras in the strangest places. Cameras that are so small with modern technology, you can’t see them and you won’t know. You better be careful or you’ll be watching yourself on nightly television.”

12. On germs:

“Does anyone really believe that story? I’m also very much of a germaphobe, by the way. Believe me.”
