  1. “My father gave me a small loan of a million dollars” – Donald J Trump 2015

    • +AzzKicKeR52 so ur saying let nazis come in the US?

    • sexy gorilla | July 17, 2016 at 7:32 pm | Reply

      a million dollars is not a large amount of money for the business he was
      going into

      +sexy gorilla it was in the time he started. Its not like a million dollars
      now, you understand the value of a dollar always gains value over time

    Small loan of a million

  3. Hillary Clinton- “Women are the primary victims of war.”

    • +TehDMBfan you get a fucking grip, men are more likely to be mutilated and
      tortured than women simply because of men serving in the majority of wars.
      Women and children are also victims or war, no body is arguing that, but if
      you want to use the term ‘Primary Victims’, Then the people who are most
      likely to be slaughtered are the ones who are forced to carry the weapons.

    • +BOSS is signing up to fight really being a vitctim though? Think about the
      women and children who do not have a fight, have never had a wish to fight.
      It’s power struggles between men. Think.

      men are the primary victims of rape, their wives, sisters or daughters are

  4. “If you like your healthcare, you can keep it.” Barack Obama

    • FilthyCasualKai | June 21, 2016 at 4:39 am | Reply

      uh, that’s not the quote.

    • The worse part is when he said you could keep your doctor. That is
      impossible, because doctors retire, they move, they change which insurance
      groups they are part of.

    • That statement waas based on a future at the time, that was only partially
      false in the long run, it should not be in this list.

  5. You could make a top 50 dumb Sarah Palin quotes.

      +iAlan I have my isuues with Hillary no doubt, but shes not stupid or at
      least not in the level where you question how they graduated high school.

    • Trekkie LaueSpock | July 3, 2016 at 7:34 am | Reply

      I question weather Palin finished elementary

    • +Trekkie LaueSpock It’s whether and Sarah Palin did a lot of good for
      Alaska. She blew the whistle about her own people laundering money.

      You don’t know anything about politics, I guarantee you don’t know anything
      past comedy sketches.

    calling it before watching it’s Donald Trump saying,”My father left me with
    a small loan of a million dollars. “

    • +Smelly Penguin??e? Toots Master
      ” but at the lowest he’s worth 4.5 billion and that’s verifiable with
      Forbes. ”
      utterly false.

    • Smelly Penguin??e? Toots Master | June 21, 2016 at 7:00 pm | Reply

      +Nick R Alright, refute it then. I have my proof. Forbes, an american
      business magazine, as well as Trump’s personal financial disclosure forms,
      both of which are available to the public. The burden of proof is on you.

    • +Smelly Penguin??e? Toots Master
      “Forbes, an american business magazine, as well as Trump’s personal
      financial disclosure forms,”
      no. neither of these state what you said.

    Obama said there were 57 states. Bernie said that ISIS is attacking people
    over global warming (LOL!), along with the fact that white people don’t
    know what it’s like to be poor, and Hillary said that women are the primary
    victims of war.

    #8 by Koch is actually true. You appreciate joy because you have
    experienced sorrow. Many of these dualities are true. including that the
    threat of death brings home the appreciation of life.

    • theres a difference between a treath and a sentence. if you had a car
      accident that could killed you yeah you aprecciate life more or if you are
      a cancer survivor i.e. but death sentence is different you know when, where
      and how you are going to die.

    • Joseph Hamrick | July 18, 2016 at 11:51 pm | Reply

      +akirin900 by telling the country that if you willingly take the life of
      someone else, you forfeit your own, the death penalty does show that one
      values life.

  11. George W. Bush might have actually had a learning disability.

      +Andy Man
      I was actually being serious.
      “IQ of George W Bush
      111 to 139
      Bush second to last since 1900, with an estimated IQ of 125 (the estimates
      ranged from 111 to 139). Bush’s estimated IQ was only higher than those
      estimated for Grant (120), Monroe (124), and Harding (124).”

      two fucking seconds.

    • i guess you missed my point – if GWB has an IQ of 111-139, so does my dog

    • mkrulic517439 | June 15, 2016 at 3:27 pm | Reply

      +Andy Man
      leave those arguments for the right.

    • Beena Plumber | June 16, 2016 at 6:13 am | Reply

      An IQ assessment is complex, and its results require careful
      interpretation. We cannot reliably compare the IQ of historical figures who
      lived before reliable assessment existed with those alive today, especially
      if they haven’t themselves released the results of a validated assessment.
      W was a dumbass president, but he could also fly a jet fighter. Jet
      fighters of that generation were not computerized. They required an actual
      pilot with a great deal of skill and training, even to just take off,
      navigate, and land sloppily. Still, he was one great dumbshit. Intelligence
      is a complicated concept.

    “You have to pass it to see what’s in it.” by Pelosi and Obama’s 57 states
    comments were idiotic. How did they not make this list?

    actually Ed Kochs quote is quite sarcastic. IMO there’s nothing stupid in

    “White people don’t know what it means to be poor”-Bernie Sanders

    • Watson Lubin | July 15, 2016 at 1:46 am | Reply

      +Kineridge You don’t. Especially during the primaries, when HRC and BS were
      debating on the topic of racial inequality.

    • +Watson Lubin exactly, white people don’t know what its like to be denied a
      job in America because of their skin colour, or the fact that as soon as
      they are born they will come from ghettos where white Americans forced them
      into. White people can hide whatever it is they want, black people can’t,
      in that sense they are poor and white people don’t know what that’s like.

    • Watson Lubin | July 15, 2016 at 8:02 pm | Reply

      +Sofia Smith I agree aside from white Americans forcing blacks to go into
      ghettos. That has to with economic problems and the displacement of the
      poor due to gentrification.

    So you SAY Reagan SAID “trees cause more pollution than cars”. Twice, you
    said he said it. But you never provided a clip of HIM saying it.

    How about Hilary Clinton saying “women’s rights are human rights”? It’s
    actually deductive reasoning and implies human rights are actually soley
    just women’s rights. Of course the idiotic followers of hers don’t
    understand that though.

  19. Seriously? It’s pretty obvious Mrs. Pelosi was using deliberate over
    exaggeration… have you “dingbats” ever heard of hyperbole?
