•On illegal immigrants (June): “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending the best. They’re not sending you.  They’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing those problems. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists and some, I assume, are good people. But I speak to border guards and they’re telling us what we’re getting.”

•On illegal immigrants who are rapists in interview with CNN’s Don Lemon (July): “Well, somebody’s doing the raping, Don. I mean, you know, somebody’s doing the raping. Who’s doing the raping?

•On John McCain’s war record (July): “He’s not a war hero…He’s a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”

•On giving out Lindsey Graham’s phone number (July): “He doesn’t seem like a very bright guy. He actually probably seems to me not as bright as Rick Perry. I think Rick Perry probably is smarter than Lindsey Graham.”

•On refusing to pledge to support the eventual Republican nominee, during first debate (August): “I will not make the pledge at this time.”

On Megyn Kelly as a debate moderator (August): “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her wherever.”

•On Carly Fiorina, in a Rolling Stone interview (September): “Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?!”

•On not challenging anti-Muslim questioner who said he needs to get rid of Muslims (September): “We’re going to be looking at a lot of different things.”

•On blaming George W. Bush for 911 (October): “When you talk about George Bush, I mean, say what you want, the World Trade Center came down during his time.”

•On attacking Ben Carson’s faith (October): “I mean, Seventh Day Adventist, I don’t know about it. I just don’t know about it.”

•On comparing Ben Carson to a child molester (November): “It’s in the book that he’s got a pathological temper. That’s a big problem because you don’t cure that … as an example: child molesting. You don’t cure these people. You don’t cure a child molester.  There’s no cure for it. Pathological, there’s no cure for that.”

•On questioning voters in the first caucus state who were supporting Ben Carson in the polls (November): “How stupid are the people of Iowa?”

•On falsely recalling “thousands” of people celebrating on 911 (November): “I watched when the World Trade Center came tumbling down, and I watched in Jersey City, New Jersey where thousands and thousands of people were cheering as that building was coming down.”

•On disruptive protestor at Birmingham, Ala. event (November): “Maybe he should have been roughed up, because it was absolutely disgusting what he was doing. I have a lot of fans, and they were not happy about it. And this was a very obnoxious guy who was a troublemaker who was looking to make trouble.”

•On not ruling out database of Muslims in America (November): “We’re going to have to – we’re going to have to look at a lot of things very closely. We’re going to have to look at the mosques. We’re going to have to look very, very carefully.”
