Donald Trump vs. Jerry Seinfeld

It seems Seinfeld has cancelled an appearance at a fundraiser hosted by Donald Trump’s son, and the Donald is not amused. The New York Post has Trump’s letter to Jerry. An excerpt:

“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.” [. . .]

“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.”

Over to you, Jerry.
