Trump Wasn't the First Major Politician to Drop an F-Bomb—Biden, McCain & Others Have Too

President Donald Trump dropped an f-bomb live on air during a radio interview on Friday.

The commander and chief called into conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh's radio show and issued a warning to Iran: "If you f**k around with us, if you do something bad to us, we are going to do things to you that have never been done before."

The obscenity was censored on the delayed radio broadcast, but it was still loud and clear on Limbaugh's video footage of the program, which has spread wide and far across the internet.

Trump's potty-mouth may be in the spotlight for the moment as he used the harsh language to explain his plans to block Iran's nuclear program should he win the 2020 election, but he's by far the first politician to use naughty language publicly. Even his presidential opponent has dropped an f-bomb when the cameras were rolling.

Biden used the curse-word while celebrating the bill-signing of the Affordable Care Act back in 2010. While standing at the podium during the heavily attended ceremony, Biden gave President Barack Obama a big hug and said, "This is a big f**king deal." Microphones from the dozens of press outlets covering the event captured the moment.

The late Senator John McCain lost his temper during a meeting with fellow Republican Senator John Cornyn of Texas in 2007. The two were set to meet to discuss immigration policy and Coryn reportedly became agitated when McCain waltzed into the meeting late. When Corny called McCain out on it, the Arizona Senator shot back: "F**k you! I know more about this than anyone else in this room."

Vice President Dick Cheney was also known for dropping an f-bomb on occasion, most notably in 2004 when he infamously told Senator Patrick Leahy, a Democrat, to "go f**k yourself" during a verbal squabble on the Senate floor.

Presidential hopeful Senator John Kerry dropped an f-bomb in 2004 too during an interview with Rolling Stone magazine while talking about his vote to give U.S. troops permission to invade Iraq. "I voted for what I thought was best for the country. ... Did I expect George Bush to f**k it up as badly as he did? I don't think anybody did," he said.

Heck, even Trump's unleashed the f-word a time or two in the years before he took the White House. Back in 2011 when he first began floating the idea of running for president, the real estate mogul gave a speech full of profanity during a Las Vegas event with potential Republican supporters.

"They (OPEC) want to go in and raise the price of oil because we have nobody in Washington that sits back and says you're not going to raise that f--king price, you understand me?" he said.

And later, while talking about Iraq, Trump dropped an f-bomb again.

"We build a school, we build a road. They blow up the road. They blow up the school. We build another school, we build another road, they blow them up. We build again, in the meantime we can't get a f**king school built in Brooklyn," he said.
