Home Celebrity Donald Trump Makes New Enemies: Stutterers

Donald Trump is already at war with Barack Obama, Jerry Seinfeld, and Robert DeNiro. Now he’s taken on a whole group of people: stutterers. On Sunday’s “Fox and Friends,” Trump said he didn’t like Seth Meyers’ roast of him at the White House Correspondents dinner. He said: “I didn’t know that I’d be virtually the sole focus. I guess when you’re leading in the polls that sort of thing tends to happen. You raise to a certain level in the polls and boy does the world come after you. But I was certainly in a certain way having a good time listening. I don’t think the American people are having a good time with $5 gas … I was thinking to myself as they were doing this, ‘You know, the American people are really suffering and we’re all having fun at a gala.'”

He added: “I thought Seth Meyers — his delivery frankly was not good. He’s a stutterer.” (This is via New York Magazine’s transcription.) Hmmm…Here’s the video of Meyers. At 12:00 he spends about three of his 20 minutes on Trump.

There is no stuttering as far as I can tell: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7YGITlxfT6s Trump used to have great timing. But attacking stuttering? Did he not see “The King’s Speech,” winner of Best Picture? This whole year has been about tolerance of stuttering. He’s just got to stop now. Trump’s lack of sense of humor and thin skin are going to be his undoing. And his own brand is now being harmed. Donald, it’s enough, come home.

  2. I am very proud of President Obama’s speech at the Correspondent’s Dinner. He should throw that birth certificate crap right back in the faces of all the republicans who have doubted his nationality. And Donald Trump needs to get over himself. Just like President Obama has taken all this criticism for his intentions and achievements Trump better get use to it too. And if he can’t take the heat then go back to Celebrity Apprentice. Looks like he can only shine when no one is questioning his decisions or doubting his ability. Sad!

  3. It was extremely distasteful for Obama to bring up the birther thing in a media event full of his sycophants. Had he been a better man he would have allowed Trump to have his chance to reply. Obama goes after everyone that questions him on any front. Trump will chew this president up when the debates start. He like everyone else in the country does not buy the president’s lies anymore.
