Jerry Seinfeld Stands Up To Trump
Comedian Jerry Seinfeld, who doesn’t often trade in politics, canceled an appearance at a benefit for a foundation headed by Donald Trump’s son, Eric. Seinfeld did so because of his disagreement with Trump touting the issue of President Obama’s citizenship. This did not sit well with The Donald, who wrote Seinfeld a scathing letter in response.
“I just learned you canceled a show for my son’s charity,” Trump fired off in a scorching letter to Seinfeld yesterday, “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.”
“Celebrity Apprentice” star Trump piled on the insults, saying he wished he’d canceled his appearance on Seinfeld’s “failed” NBC show, “The Marriage Ref.”
“We don’t care that you broke your commitment,” he wrote, “even though the children of St. Jude are very disappointed, and despite the fact that your manager clearly stated you are ‘truly a man of his word.’
“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.”
The letter ends with the kiss-off, “You should be ashamed of yourself!”
Not only did Jerry stand up for the truth, he made a contribution to Eric Trump’s foundation and to St. Jude, which is the beneficiary of the event that will now be headlined by Bret Michaels.Click here for reuse options!
