Donald Trump defends his manhood during debate

Donald Trump proved again Thursday that he is willing to say just about anything on the campaign trail.

During the debate Thursday night, Trump made reference to the size of his man business in an odd exchange with Marco Rubio. We can't really explain it, so just watch it.

Early Thursday, Trump went after 2012 nominee Mitt Romney after Romney came out against Trump.

“I backed Mitt Romney. I backed him. You can see how loyal he is. He was begging for my endorsement. I could have said ‘Mitt, drop to your knees.’ He would have dropped to his knees. He was begging,” Trump said on Thursday in response to Romney’s speech detailing why he thinks Trump would not be a good president.

Romney, who predicted his speech would illicit a personal attack from Trump, is the second Republican Party presidential nominee to be insulted by Trump. Earlier, Trump said U.S. Sen. John McCain, who was held captive and tortured as a prisoner of war in the Vietnam War, was not a true war hero because he was captured.

Here is video of his comment about McCain.

Trump, who is leading in the polls and just won seven of 11 Super Tuesday states, has called for a ban on Muslim travel, criticized Pope Francis, called Mexicans rapists and killers, mocked a disabled man, implied Fox News’ Megyn Kelly asked tough questions because she was menstruating, questioned President Obama’s country of birth, made fun of Carly Fiorina’s looks, and used crude terms regarding U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz and Democrat Hillary Clinton.

His frank talk is loved my many and they are turning out to vote for him in primaries across the country. At the same time, that kind of talk has the Republican establishment scared to death about the general election.

Here is video of some of Trump's most memorable remarks:

On Muslims

On the Pope

On Mexicans

On Megyn Kelly

On President Barack Obama's nation of birth

On Hillary Clinton losing to Obama in 2008
