SHARE Trump says Obama’s comments on nukes is ‘absolutely the dumbest’

Donald Trump went on Fox’s On The Record to sound off on President Barack Obama’s comments about a nuke over Manhattan, and said it is “absolutely the dumbest — I guess I have to say one – but maybe I can say the single dumbest statement I have ever heard a president make.”

The comment in question from Obama came earlier this week at the Nuclear Security Summit at The Hague.

Russia is a regional power that is threatening some of its immediate neighbors, Obama said. I continue to be much more concerned when it comes to our security with the prospect of a nuclear weapon going off in Manhattan.

Is it really the dumbest thing a president has ever said? It looks like Trump forgot about a few, and lucky for us, Mediaite has compiled some other dumb statements, so you be the judge (it’s hard to top LBJ):

  • “The crotch, down where your nuts hang, is always a little too tight.” – Lyndon B. Johnson in a recording.
  • “When the President does it, that means that it is not illegal.” – Richard Nixon in a 1977 interview with David Frost.
  • “That depends on what the meaning of ‘is’ is.” – Bill Clinton role-playing as Descartes before the Grand Jury.

Unfortunately, they left this gem out of consideration:

  • “There’s an old saying in Tennessee — I know it’s in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can’t get fooled again.” George W. Bush, during an appearance in Nashville, Tenn. on Sept. 17, 2002.
