But if anything, his latest trip to our fair state was even worse.
The Donald was almost an hour late to his scheduled 2 p.m. appearance at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs's Gallogly Events Center because he was among a group of people trapped in a malfunctioning elevator at the Mining Exchange Hotel that had to be extricated by firefighters. But instead of praising the department whose personnel had rescued him, he blasted fire marshal Brett Lacey for not letting more people into his town hall, declaring, "They don't know what the hell they're doing."
When word of this very Trumpian move was made public, Twitter went BOOM, with regular folks and the better-known kind (including Arianna Huffington and Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper) blasting DT for the incident in alternately angry and hilarious ways.
Here are our picks for the twenty most memorable tweets about the incident. Count them down below.
