For ranting against Cher over some tweets from the songstress & gay icon on Mitt Romney: “If ROMNEY gets elected I don’t know if I can breathe same air as Him & his Right Wing Racist Homophobic Women Hating Tea Bagger Masters.” which I find quite accurate. However, Cher almost right away apologised for the way she expressed her feelings, but not about how she really felt. The Donald however, ranted against her, and also igniting again the feud with Rosie O’Donnell, calling them both losers. Cher hasn’t yet responded but Rosie fired back almost immediately:
“He returns - like a raging herpes rash,” … ”He wants me … He needs me - he is obsessed … like a grandpa stalker,
See what I mean? This bully gets only tackier with time.
Donald Trump says he’s not running for president Donald Trump announced Monday he won’t run for the U.S. presidency in 2012, after all. The New York real estate tycoon made the announcement Monday after months of teasing the American public and toying with the nation’s political media by musing he was serious about challenging for the Republican presidential nomination.
“I maintain the strong conviction that if I were to run, I would be able to win the primary and ultimately, the general election. I have spent the past several months unofficially campaigning and recognize that running for public office cannot be done half-heartedly. Ultimately, however, business is my greatest passion and I am not ready to leave the private sector.” (Joshua Roberts/Reuters)
Is anyone surprised? Unfortunately he got what he wanted: attention from the media and more ratings for his lame TV Reality Show. But now he’s stablished himself as the joke he’s always been.
“It’s like in golf. A lot of people — I don’t want this to sound trivial — but a lot of people are switching to these really long putters, very unattractive. It’s weird. You see these great players with these really long putters, because they can’t sink three-footers anymore. And, I hate it. I am a traditionalist. I have so many fabulous friends who happen to be gay, but I am a traditionalist.”
CNN’s John King Confronts Donald Trump Over “Embarassing” Birther Issue
Did anybody expected Donald Trump to be humble? And as Cher said, he couldn’t fin his ass with both hands and a map, so why people take so seriously what Trump says? Believe (no pun intended) half of what he says and still keep doubt.
Rosie O’Donnell will not be staying at the Trump Chicago hotel while she tapes her new talk show for the Oprah Winfrey Network, a rep for O’Donnell told The Advocate Tuesday.
“She is NOT going to be living or renting a Donald Trump apartment and is still looking at real estate options,” the rep said in an e-mail.
Earlier this month O’Donnell appeared on Howard Stern’s Sirius XM radio show and said she’d be staying at the Trump Chicago hotel while she taped the show.
That was before the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation called for a boycott of all of Trump’s businesses. The real estate tycoon and potential Republican candidate for president in 2012 has spoken out against marriage equality on numerous occasions as part of his campaign platform.
“I just don’t feel good about it,” he said in an appearance on Fox News. “I don’t feel right about it. I’m against it… I’m opposed to gay marriage.”
UPDATE: GLAAD issued the following statement Tuesday evening: “Rosie O’Donnell has sent an important message to the majority of Americans - gay and straight - who don’t agree with Donald Trump’s statements against marriage equality for all loving and committed couples,” said GLAAD President Jarrett Barrios. “Fair-minded people should think twice about supporting a businessman who courts our dollars but advocates denying gay and lesbian couples protections that all families need to take care of each other.”
Jan Brewer: Birther Issue Leading Country ‘Down A Path Of Destruction’
When you’ve got Governor Jan Brewer defending President Obama over the “Birther Issue” (which is merely based on racist prejudices) you gotta know that the GOP is just fucked up. I mean, I’m glad (and surprise) that of all Republican public officials, Jan Brewer (who’s infamously known for her racist Immigration SB 1070) came out and sent a message to the Teabaggers and their new leader, Donald “Bad Toupée” Trump.
Meghan McCain, one of the most prominent voices for marriage equality in the Republican party, interviewed potential presidential candidate Donald Trump, and while she asked The Apprenticestar for a campaign job, she did not press him on his opposition to marriage equality.
McCain conducted a telephone interview with Trump for the Daily Beastin which the New York real estate mogul said he would reveal his decision whether or not to run in a press conference by June. According to McCain, Trump sounded serious in his consideration as he poll numbers and buzz continue to climb.
“What I’m looking for is someone who’s not going to take bullshit, not going to let the media run them around, and who is going to give it back to Obama,” McCain told Trump in the interview for the Daily Beast. “And you seem to be the only person who’s really doing it right now.”
Trump, who called himself an admirer of McCain and her family, asked for her opinion on potential advisers to hire. She told him to “stay away from” Steve Schmidt, the chief adviser for the failed 2008 presidential campaign of her father, U.S. Senator John McCain. Schmidt, who has a lesbian sister, later announced his support for marriage equality.
McCain and Trump did not discuss LGBT issues, but she did ask whether he would hire for his campaign. Trump said he liked that idea, and it would depend on his ultimate decision whether or not to run.
Trumps Presidential Aspirations Bad for Gay Business
Chicago Pride reports:
Republican presidential contender Donald Trump might win some conservative votes by denying gays and lesbians rights, but his hotels, resorts may suffer. The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) is asking supporters to “Tune Out Trump” and reject his television shows and his hotels, resorts, and golf courses. GLAAD said that Trump had recently rejected the concept of civil unions and even medical benefits for same-sex partners, and offered this smattering of Trump quotes to support their point: “I’m not in favor of gay marriage. They should not be able to marry.” “I just don’t feel good about it. I don’t feel right about it. I’m against it… I’m opposed to gay marriage.” Trump’s businesses stretch across the country, including in New York: —Trump World Tower —Trump Tower —Trump Plaza —40 Wall Street —1290 Avenue of the Americas —West Side development —Trump Park Ave. (Delmonico Hotel) —Trump International Hotel —The Residences at Trump National in Westchester County Elsewhere: —Bank of America Center, San Francisco —Trump Entertainment (casinos) (Atlantic City) —Trump Las Vegas —Mar-a-Lago (Palm Beach, FL) —Trump Chicago —Miami Beach Hotel/Trump International Beach Resort (Miami, FL) Golf Courses: —Trump International Golf Club, Raffles Resort (Canouan Island, The Grenadines) —Trump National Golf Club, Bedminster (Bedminster, NJ) —Trump National Golf Club, Los Angeles (Rancho Palos Verdes, CA) —Trump International Golf Club (West Palm Beach, FL) On TV: —The Apprentice (and various spinoffs) —Miss Universe / Miss USA Pageants —Fox and Friends (Fox News)
His shows are crap anyways. I don’t watch nor follow anything related with his last name. But do you notice how he alienated a huge sector of the target market of his business? I mean, who else watched his Miss Universe/ Miss USA Pageants shows but the gays? He pissed off the wrong kind of crowd.
