17 Things Everyone Should Know Before Trump Becomes President This Friday.

One of the reasons Donald Trump gets away with being such a disaster of a human being is because there are so many reasons why Donald Trump is a disaster of a human being. It often feels like we're drowning in his turpitude.

That's why we compiled this list of terrifying and insane (but true) Donald Trump facts that we should absolutely never forget. Share it far and wide.

Sources on the last page.




1. His Pledge To "Crack Down" On Porn.

While he was fighting for the Republican nomination, Donald was visited by an anti-porn group called Enough Is Enough and asked if he could do them a favor. Would he mind taking their pledge to "crack down" on porn if elected?

And so the man who is about to become the 45th President of the United States took a pledge declaring that he doesn't think freedom of speech applies to pornography.

Some of his supporters might be surprised to learn that, but what's more outrageous is the fact that he himself made a cameo in a softcore porn film in 2000! He has also appeared on the cover of Playboy.

2. He Said We Should Just Torture People Who "Deserve It".

When pressed on the issue, Trump went out of his way to make it clear that he has no moral issue with torture.

He told a crowd: "Would I approve waterboarding? You bet your ass I would in a heartbeat. ... And I would approve more than that. Don't kid yourself, folks. It works, OK? It works. Only a stupid person would say it doesn't work."

Later, he wondered aloud whether torture actually works (making him, in his own words, a stupid person).

"And you know what? If [torture] doesn't work, they deserve it anyway, for what they're doing."

3. Trump's Creepy Alter-Ego: "John Miller."

Despite the fact that he's a multi-billionaire who can afford to hire his own spokespeople, Trump used to pretend to be his own publicist ("John Miller") on the phone.

You know... like how a 9-year-old impersonates their mother when the Principal calls home because they skipped school. (continued...)

In 1991, a reporter from People magazine had a conversation with "John Miller." In the recording of the conversation, Miller (who sounds exactly like the President-elect) claims his boss is doing "tremendously well financially" and is swamped with famous women "calling to see if they can go out with him."

Shortly after the 1991 interview, Trump admitted it was him and characterized the whole thing as a joke. But when the tapes re-emerged during his Presidential run, he inexplicably denied having anything to do with them.

4. His Ghost Writer Thinks He's A Psychopath.

Tony Schwartz, the guy who actually wrote The Art of the Deal, spoke out during the campaign, stating that he regrets working with Donald Trump, and warning that he sincerely believes Trump will start a nuclear war.

He noted that it was impossible to get the President-elect to pay attention for more than a few moments at a time, and said he wishes he could retitle The Art of the Deal as The Psychopath.

5. Free Retweets For White Supremacists.

Donald Trump has made a habit of retweeting people whose twitter accounts should never see the light of day - especially so-called "white nationalists."

Sometimes it's hard to believe he even reads people's twitter handles before he retweets them. Otherwise, why would he give exposure to someone who goes by the username @WhiteGenocideTM?

6. He's Even Creepy Toward DEAD Women.

Of all the many people who have interviewed Trump, nobody is better at lowering his guard than Howard Stern. The iconic radio shock jock consistency gets the mogul to confess things that no sane person would ever cop to in public.

In 2005, Donald Trump was making one of his semi-regular appearances on Howard Stern's show, when he was asked about his "relationship" with the late Princess Diana. (continued...)

"Why do people think its egotistical of you to say you couldve gotten with Lady Di?" Stern asked. "You couldve gotten her, right? You couldve nailed her."

"I think I could have," Trump agreed.

7. Donald Thinks You Can Pay Back Debt By Printing Money.

You've seen those pictures of Germany during the Great Depression, right? When the government decided to set their printing presses on overdrive and print their way out of debt. You've seen people burning billions of dollars in the street because it was literally worth more as kindling, right?

Well, your next President hasn't. Here's what he said about paying off America's debt:

"People said I want to go and buy debt and default on debt, and I mean, these people are crazy. This is the United States government. First of all, you never have to default because you print the money, I hate to tell you, OK?"

Only one problem, Mr. President. Simply printing reams and reams of money creates hyperinflation, which leads to panic, anarchy, and people bartering in the streets.

You would know that if you had taken a first year business studies class at any community college. And yet you apparently went to the Wharton school of business...

8. He ENCOURAGED Russia To Attack The United States.

Some people are shocked and awed at the allegations that Donald Trump may have a concerning relationship with Russia.

Personally, I don't see why. Maybe because he OPENLY INVITED RUSSIA TO ATTACK HIS OPPONENT DURING THE ELECTION!

Don't believe me? Here's the quote: "Russia, if youre listening, I hope youre able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing."

9. "Why Don't We Use Them?"

Former Republican Congressman and current conservative TV host Joe Scarborough reported an absolutely blood-curdling conversation Trump allegedly had with one of his advisors about nuclear weapons. (continued...)

According to this advisor, Trump was being briefed on the details of America's nuclear arsenal when he asked, "If we have them, why can't we use them?"

This wasn't a slip of the tongue either. The expert in question told Scarborough that the President-elect asked this question three times inside an hour.

10. "Has Issues With Women" Is Putting It Mildly.

The allegations of sexual assault and harassment made by women against Donald Trump could fill volumes. We all know the horrific details; how he likes to "move on them" and what parts of the anatomy he likes to grab them by.

But actually, the allegations are far scarier than even those unintentional admissions.

Over 50 former models involved with his beauty pageants came forward during the campaign, attesting to his hideously inappropriate behaviour. Many of them paint a portrait of a man who felt he was entitled to impose himself on women half his age or younger.

One such woman is Temple Taggart, a former participant in Trump's Miss USA pageant:

"He kissed me directly on the lips. I thought, 'Oh my God, gross.' He was married to Marla Maples at the time. I think there were a few other girls that he kissed on the mouth. I was like 'Wow, thats inappropriate.'"

Taggart's allegations are one drop in a very deep well.

11. Someone Compiled A List Of Every Offensive Thing Donald Trump Has Ever Said Or Done...

...and if you sit down and read it all, a genie will grant you three wishes (Aladdin rules in effect).

By the way the list is 472 pages in length, so... have fun! That's a full 100 pages longer than The Art of the Deal, but only marginally more offensive.

12. His Supporters Believe Some Seriously Crazy Stuff.

It may not surprise you to learn that 60% of Donald Trump's supporters believe Muslims should be banned from entering the US (which is against the Constitution). But some of the other things his supporters want will scare you to death. (continued...)

Here are some highlights (or lowlights):

50% support the Confederate flag hanging on the Capital grounds.

30% support shutting down all mosques in the United States (unconstitutional).

30% wish the South won the Civil War (literally treasonous).

20% support banning homosexuals from entering the United States

10% say whites are a superior race

15% believe slavery shouldn't have been abolished (and 20% say they're "unsure.")

13. Trump Is A Little Too Comfortable With The Idea Of World War III.

At one point during the campaign, he declared that the war on terror is now "a world war scenario," and insisted that he would press congress to recognize that fact.

Trump: "If you look at it, this is war, coming from all different parts. And frankly, its war and were dealing with people without uniforms. You know, in the old days, you would have uniforms. You knew who you were fighting."

In fairness, like most of his statements, this one is so vague that I'm not sure whether he's arguing for another D-Day or just new uniforms for the services.

I guess we'll find out together.

14. ...Also, A Little Too Comfortable Starting A War With Russia.

For all the speculation that Trump could be too friendly with the Russians, he has also occasionally erred on the side of being too aggressive.

Here's what he had to say about Russian planes flying too close to American ships: "At a certain point, when that sucker comes by you, you gotta shoot. And its a shame. Its a shame."

Yeah, it would be a shame to risk a nuclear war over what amounts to a pissing contest.

15. Donald Tried To Execute Innocent Children (No, Literally).

In 1989, jogger Trisha Meili was viciously sexually assaulted while she ran through New York City's Central Park. How does this concern Donald Trump? (continued...)

A group of Black teens between the ages of 13 and 16 were arrested for the crime. They became known as the Central Park Five.

Donald Trump was apparently so incensed by this crime that he took out ads in the city's major newspapers arguing that the death penalty should be brought back in New York state specifically so it could be applied to these kids.

In the ad, Trump said: "They should be forced to suffer! Criminals must be told that their CIVIL LIBERTIES END WHEN AN ATTACK ON OUR SAFETY BEGINS!"

Years later, DNA evidence exonerated the Central Park Five, but (or course) the President-elect refused to apologize, rationalizing that were "somehow probably guilty" regardless.

16. The Guy Said Nice Things About Saddam Hussein.

Donald Trump may not have a kind word for latino, women, African-Americans, or Meryl Streep. But, fortunately, there is at least one person he has publicly praised.

Unfortunately, that person is Saddam Hussein.

"He was a bad guy -- really bad guy," Trump said. But why end the sentence there?

"You know what he did well? He killed terrorists. He did that so good. They didn't read them the rights. They didn't talk. They were terrorists. Over. Today, Iraq is Harvard for terrorism."

Of course, Donald skipped over the part where Saddam, for example, paid of the families of suicide bombers who killed Israelis. But hey: nobody's perfect.

17. Donald Trump Has Loads Of Black Friends.

Tired of being accused of racism, Donald sent out this tweet:

Alas, the Black family in the picture: 1) are not Trump supporters, and 2) are among the first results you find when you type "Black family" into Google.

Classic Donald Trump.

Breaking up is hard to do.

And when you get the law involved, it's even worse. But sometimes people don't need the law's help to make things overcomplicated, they just have a grand ole time making that happen themselves.

People on the front lines of human cruelty include divorce lawyers. These are their stories.
