As can be expected, Donald Trump is finally firing back at Bill Cosby. After the legendary comedian blasted “The Apprentice” star on “The Today Show” last week, the Trump is claiming Cosby’s nothing more than a two faced phony.
It’s all over Bill’s controversial statement he made on “The Today Show,” claiming the Donald should either “run or shut up,” referring to Trump’s narcissistic stance on running for President in 2012.
Donald, who can’t publicly declare his candidacy until this juicy season of “Celebrity Apprentice” is over, returned fire this week in a statement of his own, claiming:
“While I have never been a fan of Cosby’s, I had always assumed he liked or respected me because every time I met him … he was always so nice.”
Trumps adds, “If [Bill] doesn’t want me to run because he’s obviously an Obama fan, he should state the reasons and not … treat me like his best friend, only to denigrate me when I’m not around.”
Check out Trump’s response to Bill Cosby in its entirety below:
The other day on The Today Show, right after I was interviewed by Meredith Vieira, a terrific person and reporter, I happened to watch Bill Cosby who was on at the end of the show. While I have never been a fan of Cosby’s, I had always assumed he liked or respected me because every time I met him—the last time at the David Letterman show where I preceded him as a guest—he was always so nice, saying “let’s get together”—asking me out to dinner, and being polite to the point of offering to buy me a suit because he has a “great tailor.”
In any event, as I watched the show, the subject of Donald Trump came up. I was surprised to hear him blabber, somewhat incoherently “you run or shut up.” The hatred was pouring out of his eyes when he said this. As I am sure he must know I cannot run until this season of Celebrity Apprentice ends. I know that he has taken a lot of heat over the years in that he seems to be talking down to the people he’s talking to and purportedly trying to help. Actually, based on the way he acted, things are not looking too good for Cosby.
I wish he would be more honest, and if he doesn’t want me to run because he’s obviously an Obama fan, he should state the reasons and not come into my “green room” in front of numerous witnesses and treat me like his best friend, only to denigrate me when I’m not around. Sadly, he got more attention talking about me than he did on the merits of his own appearance—maybe he is not as dumb as I thought.
Clearly no love lost, no love found here.
