Saying stupid things is part of our human nature, and we are all guilty of having opened our mouths before fully engaging our brains. However, for some, the guilt is infinitely higher than others – here’s looking at you, President Donald Trump.
The 45th President of the United States is renowned for his big mouth (and big thumbs, despite his very tiny hands, if his Twitter timeline is anything to go by), which has found him in some rather hot water on more than one occasion. After all, how could we forget his now-iconic “locker room talk” with Billy Bush, in which he shockingly bragged about taking advantage of women because “when you’re a star, they let you do it.”
That particular exchange, in which he also boasted of sexually assaulting women (“grab them by the p*ssy”), threatened to end his presidential race. However, the world underestimated the power of the 71-year-old businessman, who was able to bounce back from the scandal with more vigor than Hillary Clinton’s undelivered emails.
Throughout Trump’s presidential campaign, his past often came back to haunt him, from the time he claimed Barack Obama was an illegal immigrant born in Kenya (“An ‘extremely credible source’ has called my office and told me that Barack Obama’s birth certificate is a fraud”), to his continued disregard for global warming (“It’s freezing and snowing in New York – we need global warming!”).
The endless reel of material unintentionally supplied by Trump (“I have never seen a thin person drinking Diet Coke”) has inspired many artists across the world to get creative. But, none have taken it to quite the same extreme as 18-year-old student, Aria Watson.
