It seems Donald Trump failed to see the humor in some of the jokes made about him at the White House Correspondents' Dinner on Saturday.
“Donald Trump has been saying that he’ll run for president as a Republican,” said Meyers, “which is surprising, since I just assumed he was running as a joke.” And that was only the beginning.
The next morning, Trump talked with the hosts of “Fox and Friends," and had this to say about the comedian: “I thought Seth Meyers, frankly, his delivery was not good. He’s a stutterer and he really was having a hard time.”
Now he’s in hot water with the Stuttering Foundation.
“Shame on you, Mr. Trump,” said the foundation's president, Jane Fraser. “We at the Stuttering Foundation find it discouraging that in 2011, Donald Trump has chosen to use the word 'stutterer' in a derogatory fashion, something to be made fun of, to describe Seth Meyers' speech at the annual White House Correspondents' dinner.”
What controversy will The Donald be a part of next?
