"I'm worth billions of dollars, and I have to listen to this fat slob?"

Donald Trump expresses himself... about Rosie O'Donnell.

IN THE COMMENTS: Johnny Nucleo says:
This smackdown is the funniest thing since Borat, which I have not seen, but I understand it is very funny.

Rosie's shots are more polished than Donald's, but I think his are funnier because they are more like a kid's insults. It's stream of consciousness, everything but the kitchen sink stuff: "You're fat and ugly, and I'm going to steal your girlfriend, which will be easy, and Barbara Walters hates you, and I'm going to sue, and you're fat, and ugly too, and you are a loser, and nobody likes you, fatso." I was laughing all day at work and everyone thought I was high, which I was, but that was not why I was laughing. Watch the videos - hell, just read the transcripts - of Trump going off and try not to laugh.

Donald Trump is a treasure. I mean that. He is one of the most unintentionally funny human beings ever to walk the Earth.

I don't think he had to use derogatory language about her personal appearance, but I agree that she is an ugly person inside. Like most moonbats, she projects who she is on others. I would love to see the Donald appear on the show!

Elizabeth said...

I think she nailed it: that whole Miss America "controversy" was staged to get Trump in the news before his next Apprentice season.

SteveR said...

Two massive New York sized egos. She gets paid to blab and he puts himself up to it. They deserve eachother.

Anonymous said...

The fact that he thinks his money is somehow relevant is bizarre.

Ruth Anne Adams said...

When billionaires and millionaires get into public spitting contests, all the PC stuff goes out of the window. He's ageist, sexist and lesbia-phobic.

Love it.

ignacio said...

They're both idiots. No news there.

Balfegor said...

Goodness, but they do talk trash!

The fact that he thinks his money is somehow relevant is bizarre.

Well, he's a New Yorker, no? I recall we had a thread here once where we discovered that New Yorkers are a lot more, uh, open about flaunting wealth than most other Americans. Or, indeed, most other people.

Ah, my verification word is "meixn." Looks almost like "Mei Xin" - a name that would fairly invite O'Donnell to delight us once again with her so wonderfully sensitive "Ching chang chong ching chang chong" routine again. The bigot.

Mike said...

I think he has the money angle exactly backward. His attitude should be "I have to listen to this fat slob, but hey, at least I have billions of dollars".

The rest of us who have to listen to O'Donnell have no such consolation.

Hmmm, Rosie is a professional pain in the ass. At least Trump does things and creates jobs. And the contest is his. He bought it. That is what makes him the boss, he is the boss.

I don't really follow beauty pageant news, but I was kind of blown away when I heard that Donald Trump would decide whether a drinking binge and girl-on-girl kiss would disqualify the pageant queen. Maybe Rosie took her criticism too far, but I think there's a real absurdity there that Rosie was pointing out.

The whole thing, the pageant controversy and this over-the-top exchange seems just designed for self-promotion on both sides.

Elizabeth said...

None of us has to listen to either one of them. We do because we find it an entertaining spectacle.

tcd said...

Balfegor, I was about to bring up the Rosie bigot episode, too. But apparently, Asians aren't allowed to be offended by Rosie's ethnic insensitivity because, you know, she's a "tolerant" liberal.

price said...

The video of Trump trash-talking Rosie is one of the funniest things I've seen in a while. This fight is highly amusing.

Shanna said...

They're both idiots but I prefer trumps brand of idiocy. He's a strange, strange man, Trump. But I'd sure as hell rather watch the Apprentice than the view.

MadisonMan said...

Exactly what, I wonder, will Trump sue for? There is no character to defame. He should be paying Rosie for the publicity -- for all I know, he might be.

Julie said...

My guess is that Rosie is loving this attention, and so is Trump. This is not surprising from Trump, nor is it surprising from Rosie, whose obvious business models include staying in the news. What is surprising is the apparent lack of foresight from “The View” producers. Correct me if I am wrong, but it appears the “The View” might be becoming a one person show, and that person is relying upon shock and low-form humor for entertainment. It is likely working for now, as people have probably begun tuning in to see what Rosie will do next, but is it sustainable? I think not.

Dave said...

Trump's da man.

Anyway, there is some doubt as to whether he is really worth the billions he claims.

David53 said...

I agree with Shanna. They are both idiots.

For whatever reason, Rosie felt compelled to belittle Trump on national TV. You reap what you sow. Rosie has never felt the urge to hold in her true feelings, now it seems she has met her match.

In our screwy world it will probably make both of them a lot money.

Zeb Quinn said...

Both The View and Trump/Miss USA/The Apprentice are getting enormous free publicity here.

But it's a race to the bottom of the barrel and it's hard to say who's getting there faster. Looks like Rosie right now.

Christy said...

"Will no one rid me of this meddlesome Preistess of the PC?" is how I read Trump's remarks.

Finn Kristiansen said...

Wait, so getting divorced several times over is immoral, but breaking the law by drinking under age is not?

So, you own and run a business and have no right to how the person representing your business behaves, especially when they have likely breached a contract covering previous, present and future behavior?

What, it's now wrong to allow your parents to pass down their wealth to you, and further, any additional wealth you create does not accrue to your credit?

Somehow I doubt Rosie would be so riveted if the woman in question had been smooching up guys during her partying moments. Ten bucks says Rosie is already calling the girl to arrange a sitdown on The View for an up close and personal.

Trump is a calculating and at times annoying publicity hound, but certainly not an idiot and subject to the bouts of verbal diarrhea that Rosie feeds us when her fat cheeks get rattled.

"Thing One and Thing Two... Thing Two and Thing One..."

Two dopes, cut from the same cloth, battling it out! Lurve it!

Bissage said...

Donald Trump expressed himself: "I’m worth billions of dollars, and I have to listen to this fat slob?"

No. Of course he doesn’t.

He knows that.

But he does have to die.

Like all of us.

He knows that, too.

So does she.

But they’ll never let on.

Ha!

Elizabeth said...

I just stopped in at the corner pub, enticed by the chalked sign out front: Stop in for a tasty holiday beer!

Rosie just gained major ground, if the reaction of the late afternoon patrons is a fair measure. The mute TV above the bar showed a split screen of Rosie and the Donald; when Rosie swept her hair over in a spot-on imitation of that awful thing that crowns his head, the bar erupted in applause and laughter.

George said...

Merry Christmas!

Peace on Earth!

Goodwill to Men!

Ruth Anne Adams said...

Elizabeth: Not so fast there. You said Rosie was muted. I think the opinion might shift once they heard her whole comment.

But getting a laugh for Rosie is a good thing these days, I'll grant you.

hdhouse said...

clearly trump expresses his value system to a t. if you are worth a lot of money then you have social value. so conveniently he excludes the poor.

pompous ass.

Elizabeth said...

ruth anne, no need to slow down. The people knew what they were laughing at, and they laughted because it was funny.

Balfegor said...

I prefer to go with turbulent, myself. Haha-- But O'Donnell is . . . not exactly a Becket figure here.

Cat said...

Both of them are publicity hounds, but at least with the Donald he's up front with the no publicity is bad publicity as he lines his pockets with cash from this event and that event.

Rosie on the other hand thinks she is some moral authority on every subject. I can't stand her self righteous bull-dog face.

And it seems Joy Behar wants to get in on the headlines so she calls Donald Rumsfeld Hitler on Monday to create controversy to make the news.

A dumb show for dumb people.

AlaskaJack said...

This is a tough one to get a handle on. Is Rosie fat? Is Rosie a slob? We need expert opinion to guide us here.

This smackdown is the funniest thing since Borat, which I have not seen, but I understand it is very funny.

Rosie..riveted? Nice one...

Cedarford said...

Julie - It is likely working for now, as people have probably begun tuning in to see what Rosie will do next, but is it sustainable? I think not.

Agree. When you have an established show, you don't want it transformed by a newcomer into it being All ABOUT THE NEW ARRIVAL. Especially when it is about the controversy of the week that happens when the newcomer runs her mouth. It is good for ratings for a little while, but it gets old fast.

And this is all about 2 publicity mavens drumming up viewership from the hoi pollei who live their lives vicariously through "more important people"...both will make millions from the simple fact of shitmouthing one another in public in a declining civilization that wants its bread and circuses will translate into ratings revenues.

That said, I favor the egotistic asshole over the High Lez Priestess of PC. O'Donnell started it with attacks on Trumps finances, appearance, and sex life. Trump will likely finish it.

Rosie has been shielded by the media establishment. Trump is someone who is not under their thumb or "code of sensitivity". So he can say things about O'Donnell no one else dares to that are on many people's minds but Not Allowed to Be Said.

Like her being an ugly fat cow with a large mouth and low IQ. Completely devoid of the class of many other hosts (not that TRump has much, either).

Shanna said...

Trump can be hysterical. He can also say things that are cringworthy (thinking back to my apprentice watching days). You know what I've just realized? Trump is a real live Michael Scott! I mean, he's not exactly like him but I get a similar vibe.

Rosie is just obnoxious. It's the self righteousness that kills the humor.

This may be staged, not sure.
But at this time of the year it's
a great diversion from the typical barrage of bad news.

Pogo said...

This clearly requires a televised cage match.

Pogo said...

Oh, and ten bucks on Rosie, TKO in the second.

Pogo said...

Blog adminstrator alert:
Oh, and... cliche, unintentional foul.

Fifteen yards and loss of down.

jakemanjack said...

I don't care how childish Trump sounds -- he is right. Rosie is a fat loser.
Notice also how Rosie uses the "divorced three times" card?
That's a subtle jab at Rudy. Leftists HATE and FEAR Rudy;
And the lefty media template will be to ceaselessly point out the getting a divorce and re-marrying is really bad! (unless of course your a Hollywood big shot - then it's okay)
