Donald Trump stormed Capitol Hill on Wednesday to protest the Iran nuclear deal. This speech, like most of his other missives, featured him shouting random statements in his usual theatrical manner.
Trump begins by promising that he’s the only person who can rescue the Iran detainees. How so? By the sheer power of intimidation. Remember, this is the same guy who said only he could negotiate with El Chapo, but that didn’t work out so well for Trump when it came down to the realities of dealing with powerful Mexican drug lords.
It remains impossible to criticize Trump beyond acknowledging his entertainment factor, but we can enjoy his bloviating quotes. Here are the top five gems from this Capitol Hill speech:
1. “I guarantee you, if I win the presidency, I guarantee you that those prisoners are back in our country before I even take office… because they know that’s what has to happen, okay?”
2. “We are led by very, very stupid people. Very, very stupid people.”
3. “We will have so much winning if I get elected, that you may get bored with winning. You’ll never get bored of winning. We never get bored!”
4. “We’re gonna build up our military. We’re gonna have such a strong military that nobody, nobody, is gonna mess with us. We’re not gonna have to use it.
5. “Believe me.”
