Everyday, there there appears to be yet another blunder, gaffe, or incredibly boneheaded comment coming from the White House. But when it comes to verbal screw-ups and general nastiness, this is not Donald Trump's first rodeo. He has been saying bizarre things for decades – some of them nonsensical, some of them plain offensive, but nearly all of them outrageous. Unsurprisingly, Howard Stern tends to bring out an even more primitive side to Trump; it's almost as if Stern's own pushing-of-the-boundaries gives Trump permission to make the most startling and bewildering statements. And to Stern's credit, it makes for good radio.
It doesn't, however, make for good governance, and the 45th Commander-in-Chief isn't exactly known for his tact or brevity. Oh well, at least there was a time – when we were all collectively a little more naïve – in which these Trump quotes were simply provocative. Love him or hate him, this collection of inappropriate Donald Trump quotes will make even his most loyal of continuants cringe.

He Thinks Ivanka Has The Best Body
What He Said: "Ivanka, my daughter Ivanka. She's six feet tall. She's got the best body. She made a lot of money as a model. A tremendous amount and then she went cold turkey and gave it all up because she had to go to college because I wanted her to go to college. She goes to the best college sort and she goes to Wharton and she's got straight A's and she's one of them. She's considered one of the most beautiful women. And she really is, she is like a great beauty."

He Wanted To Sleep With Princess Diana... But Give Her An HIV Test First
What He Said: "I wouldn't say I do this, but you could send lots of people you really like to the doctor before you ever get to know them … [I'd tell Diana to] go back over to my Lexus, because I have a new doctor. We wanna give you a little checkup."

He Thinks Beautiful, Smart Women Are Unappealing
What He Said: "Of the women, there are some that are just unbelievable--like supermodel beauty, in addition to having a 200 IQ, and that maybe is negative. A beautiful woman that’s that smart. That could be a negative, Howard. I don't know. You tell me."
