If you thought the president of the United States could make it through one week without saying something completely inappropriate, you’d be sadly mistaken.

While presenting the Presidential Medal of Freedom, America’s highest honour, to the late Justice Anthony Scalia, Trump thought it was acceptable to make a joke about how much sex he had engaged in while he was alive. Yes, really.

Trump read out the names of Scalia’s nine children, before smiling and saying:

You were very busy...wow...I always knew I liked him.

Scalia famously ruled against a woman’s right to birth control, so it’s clear he put this into practice in his private life too.
