After opening Thursday’s GOP debate by refusing to promise he wouldn't run for president as an independent, Donald Trump spent the bulk of the evening insulting everyone and everything in his path. Here are some of his best—and most horrifying—burns of the night.
"Only Rosie O'Donnell." [In response to a question about tweeting insults at women.]
“I’ve been very nice to you, although I could probably maybe not be based on the way you have treated me."
“Our leaders are stupid. Our politicians are stupid. And the Mexican government is much smarter... much more cunning…”
“If it weren’t for me, you wouldn’t even be talking about illegal immigration, Chris. You wouldn’t even be talking about it.”
"You're living in the world of the make-believe, Chris."
“I don’t think you heard me. You’re having a hard time tonight.”
Other business people
“Virtually every person you read about on the front page of the business section, they’ve used the law [to deal with bankruptcies].”
Every Bank in the World, Apparently
"First of all, these lenders aren't babies. These are total killers.”
“I don’t think they like me very much.”
George W. Bush
“The last number of months of his… administration were a catastrophe.”
“We have a president who doesn’t have a clue. I would say he’s incompetent, but I don’t want to do that because that’s not nice.”
“We have people in Washington that don’t know what they’re doing.”
“Our country is in serious trouble. We don’t win anymore… We can’t beat Mexico, at the border or in trade. We can’t do anything right.”
