We all say stupid shit sometimes. Some more than others. Here is a collection of things political leaders have said over the years.
Casual racism and bad jokes come naturally to Boris Johnson. Here is a selection of some of his weird comments said over the years, unfortunately most of which when he was an MP.
“Voting Tory will cause your wife to have bigger breasts and increase your chances of owning a BMW M3.”Encouraging the electorate to vote for the Conservatives in 2005. In comparison, voting Labour shrinks your penis and leaves you with a Ford Ka.
“It is absolutely ridiculous that people should choose to go around looking like letter boxes.”Nothing says Prime Minister like some casual racism as far back as 2018.
The Democratic nominee for the 2020 US election has been dubbed a “gaffe machine”, and with good reason.
“You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking.”Not ideal Joe.
“Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.”
This list could go on longer than Trump’s ties, but here’s a selection of our favourites.
I am not going to bother because this would just be ridiculously long.
