Whether it’s questioning President Obama’s birth certificate or lambasting Rosie O’Donnell in the press, when Donald Trump fights, he goes for the throat. Yesterday Donald Trump blasted Jerry Seinfeld for canceling his stand-up performance at an Eric Trump Foundation benefit this coming September, attacking the comedian’s most sensitive spot: his awful show The Marriage Ref. There goes any hope of a clean campaign! “I just learned you canceled a show for my son’s charity because of the fact that I am being very aggressive with respect to President Obama, who is doing an absolutely terrible job as our leader,” Trump raged in his letter to Seinfeld. “What I do feel badly about is that I agreed to do, and did, your failed show The Marriage Ref, even though I thought it was absolutely terrible . . . Despite its poor ratings, I didn’t cancel on you like you canceled on my son and St. Jude. I only wish I did.” Wow, maybe Trump should be a politician: he’s willing to go personal, and he’ll do things he thinks are awful just to be on TV. He’s half-way to the White House already!
If you can imagine, publicly insulting him hasn’t exactly made Jerry Seinfeld climb aboard the Trump campaign bus. “Jerry . . . feels this kind of demagoguery has no place in public discourse,” Say Seinfeld’s rep. “He has respectfully withdrawn from the event, and is making a contribution both to the Eric Trump Foundation and to [St. Jude].” Instead, Brett Michaels will do Trump’s benefit in the comedian’s place. Wow, Jerry is going to feel pretty sheepish when Trump gets elected next year and it turns out he pissed off our future leader. Sheepish, and horrified.
