Trump Angry with Seinfeld Over Event Pullout



Text  



Jerry Seinfeld recently pulled out of performing at an event benefiting St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital and the Eric Trump Foundation (run by the Donald’s son) due to disagreements with Trump’s continued raising of the “birther” issue when criticizing President Obama.  Trump wrote an angry letter to Seinfeld yesterday:

“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!”
