Despite offending millions of U.S. veterans, Mexicans, Muslims and basically every woman in America, Donald Trump won seven states and 234 delegates in a comprehensive victory during Super Tuesday voting around the country. The GOP front-runner has made a career of saying whatever is on his mind, including calling out the pope and suggesting that all Muslims should be banned from entering the country.
Here’s a look at some of the New York real estate mogul’s most offensive and outrageous comments over the years:
"You know, it doesn't really matter what [the media] write as long as you've got a young and beautiful piece of ass."
“I will build a great wall – and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me – and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our Southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words."
“Our great African-American president hasn’t exactly had a positive impact on the thugs who are so happily and openly destroying Baltimore.”
“All of the women on 'The Apprentice' flirted with me — consciously or unconsciously. That’s to be expected."
“I have never seen a thin person drinking Diet Coke."
“You’re disgusting” – said to a female lawyer during a court case after she asked for a break to pump breast milk for her 3-month-old daughter.
“Ariana Huffington is unattractive, both inside and out. I fully understand why her former husband left her for a man. He made a good decision."
“26,000 unreported sexual assults [sic] in the military — only 238 convictions. What did these geniuses expect when they put men & women together?"

“I would never buy Ivana any decent jewels or pictures. Why give her negotiable assets?"
“The most difficult aspect of the prenuptial agreement is informing your future wife (or husband): I love you very much, but just in case things don’t work out, this is what you will get in the divorce. There are basically three types of women and reactions. One is the good woman who very much loves her future husband, solely for himself, but refuses to sign the agreement on principle. I fully understand this, but the man should take a pass anyway and find someone else. The other is the calculating woman who refuses to sign the prenuptial agreement because she is expecting to take advantage of the poor, unsuspecting sucker she’s got in her grasp. There is also the woman who will openly and quickly sign a prenuptial agreement in order to make a quick hit and take the money given to her."
“[Angelina Jolie’s] been with so many guys she makes me look like a baby... And, I just don’t even find her attractive."
“Look at that face!” said of former Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina. “Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?!"
“Women have one of the great acts of all time. The smart ones act very feminine and needy, but inside they are real killers. The person who came up with the expression ‘the weaker sex’ was either very naive or had to be kidding. I have seen women manipulate men with just a twitch of their eye — or perhaps another body part."
“While @BetteMidler is an extremely unattractive woman, I refuse to say that because I always insist on being politically correct."
"Cher is somewhat of a loser. She's lonely. She's unhappy. She's very miserable."
"Love him or hate him, Donald Trump is a man who is certain about what he wants and sets out to get it, no holds barred," Trump said about himself one time. "Women find his power almost as much of a turn-on as his money."
“You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever. In my opinion, she was off base,” Trump said of Fox News’ Megyn Kelly.
“He’s not a war hero,” said of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. “He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”
“I think the only difference between me and the other candidates is that I’m more honest and my women are more beautiful."
"My IQ is one of the highest — and you all know it! Please don't feel so stupid or insecure; it's not your fault."
"Many people walked out of Madonna’s concert when she told them to vote for Obama. Years ago I walked out because the concert was terrible."
"Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life,” Trump said with regard to his plan to ban Muslims from entering the U.S.
