Count Down the Dumbest Political Stories From 2015

Best (or worst?) political quotes of 2015

"You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her wherever."
- Donald Trump after the Fox News Republican presidential debate

Trump did not like the questions he got during the first Republican presidential debate in August, so he went after the moderators. Specifically, Megyn Kelly. He later said the comment was not a reference to Kelly's menstrual cycle.

"As Taylor Swift said, 'Haters are gonna hate.'"
- Former Rep. Aaron Schock, R-Ill., defending his Downton Abbey office.

The former Illinois congressman dominated Capitol Hill headlines back in February after The Washington Post reported on his Downton Abbey themed office. When Schock was asked about his lavish digs by ABC News, he said, "I'm also not going to live in a cave. So when I post an Instagram photo with me and my friends, as Taylor Swift said, 'haters gonna hate.'" It inspired a deeper look into the GOP representative's spending habits and led to Schock's resignation from Congress in March.
