Seinfeld cancels on Trump after Obama comments

Donald Trump's "birther" comments are no joke for Jerry Seinfeld.

The 56-year-old comedian has canceled his appearance at a benefit for Donald Trump’s Eric Trump Foundation because the real estate mogul has been questioning whether President Obama was born in America.

Seinfeld was expected to attend the September 13 event benefiting St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, but his rep tells CNN that Seinfeld has indeed pulled out of the engagement because of the remarks Trump has been making about the President.

Trump responded to Seinfeld’s move with a letter, writing, "I just learned you canceled a show for my son's charity, The Eric Trump Foundation, which benefits the St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital (children with cancer) because of the fact that you think I am being very aggressive with respect to President Obama, who is doing an absolutely terrible job as our leader - just look at Libya, our economy, gas, food, and clothing prices and maybe you will understand what is going on!"

It’s not so much that Seinfeld pulled out of the benefit, Trump goes on, although “the children of St. Jude are very disappointed" and "Bret Michaels, disgusted by what happened, is taking over."

"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,” Trump wrote. “Despite its poor ratings, I didn't cancel on you like you canceled on my son and St. Jude. I only wish I did."

Seinfeld had agreed to do the benefit back in January, but according to his manager, he became “increasingly uncomfortable” with Trump’s questioning of Obama’s citizenship.

According to his manager, Seinfeld “feels this kind of demagoguery has no place in public discourse . . . He has respectfully withdrawn from the event, and is making a contribution both to the Eric Trump Foundation and to [St. Jude]."

Meanwhile, Trump’s wife Melania has come to his defense, telling Joy Behar that her husband’s possible presidential run is not a publicity stunt:

"Look, he doesn't need the publicity," Trump tells Behar. "He's successful...he's very passionate about the country [and] he wants to see the country as one of the best; the best in the world."

    Unquestionably consider that that you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the internet the simplest factor to consider of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while other folks think about worries that they just don't realize about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as neatly as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , other people can take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thanks

    You can't buy class Trump. We also don't want you representing America. Americans hold their heads high during tough times.

    Donate your money to a charity. You're gonna lose. Why blow the money? Because you can? I don't want a frivolous spender at the helm of our economy.

    The biggest problem I have with Trump wanting to be President is that he responds to things that make him angry like a 12 year-old would. He starts name calling and makes personal insults. He lacks the class and level headedness for the job. I don't want someone with his obvious lack of maturity representing me. Also, he's a raging egomaniac and cheated on his first wife. Integrity isn't his strongest attribute.

    Well, If Trump really cared about this country as much as he says he does, then why is he purposely pulling it apart by jumping on the bandwagons that he is stirring up. Trump is also making America look stupid to other nations by telling them that we have a man in office to run this country that is nt qualified. How does that make the US look to the rest of the world?? Amazing. I think that thing on his head (not sure what that is) is eating his brain.

    In Trump's own famous words, "It's nothing personal, it's just business."
    Nobody expects Trump to run, and fewer people than that would expect him to win, and even fewer people that that would vote for him. He is exercising Charile Sheen's philosophy of life, "There is no such thing as bad publicity." For these people, nothing can beat having your name on as many lips as possible, regardless of what words come before and after it.

    Wealthy people have lost sight how to energize the economy. Example: Donald Trump claims to have 7 Billion Dollars and if he would just spend one billion back into the economy. Bill Gates, who has 92 Billion Dollars could spend 5 Billion dollars back into the economy, Warren Buffet, who has 47 Billion Dollars spend five billion back into the economy and there are countless other billionaires, millionaires who could spend billions or millions back into the economy. Those dollar amounts wouldn't affect them at all. But they won't do it, because they have to make money investing it instead. Another example: CEOs who would rather accept a 5 to 25 million dollar bonus instead of using that money to save their employee's jobs. You see America, the wealthy are not in it for the working class, but would rather lay you off and accept their bonuses. The economy would recover if only 'all of the wealthy people' started spending some of their wealth. God knows the middleclass doesn't have enough money to spend any more.

    Obama shows no drama because he is a man who is at peace with himself. Most people from the other party are not; people that spew hate in reality hate themsleves - it is as simple as that.

Then, when she falls aside, we get Donald Trump, who wants to wage war to take oil and riches, and whose friends are, as he put it, "horrible men in wall street". If Wall Street greed caused the current recession, what would happen to us if we put them in the office of President of the United States? OMG!

      Clearly you don't understand the concept of a benefit. The idea is to have an event that RAISES MONEY TO THROW AT THE PROBLEM! It helps because throwing money gives the scientists something to use to continue research on finding a cure. Jerry wasn't going there to perform to 'cheer the kids up' or sign autographs, or something. He was going to entertain in the hopes that morons like you might be willing to donate money. Of course, you're above that. Perhaps you're too busy in your laboratory finding a cure for cancer with your unlimited funds?

    The only thing more offensive than Trump jumping on the birther bandwagon is the horrifying run-on sentence he used in that letter to Seinfeld and even more so his juvenile tantrum. Were he to be a gentleman, he would have realized that he had offended Seinfeld, who not only has a right to express his own opinion about what he finds offensive, but also the right to reneg on a deal if he feels it's going to go against his principals. Trump should have apologized and respected Seinfeld's decision to back out of the deal, and maybe (I know tihs is going out on a limb) learned to shut his pie hole if someone disagrees with him. As far as his wife is concerned, she's probably a nice woman and she certainly has an outstanding rack (just sayin'...) but when it comes to campaigning for The Donald, she'd do better to go shoe shopping instead.

    Trump is going bonkers, I mean I love his love for his country but attacking the president concerning birther issues that have already been proven to be correct and continuing that wacko issue is just ridiculous. I agree with Trump on China, Mexico.. but provide US Trump with solutions. SOLUTIONS. SO-LU-TIONS.

    This sort of petty, ranting diatribe is Classic Trump and a good reminder why anyone suddenly thinking he'd make a good President of the United States is out of his or her mind. Donald Trump is a shameless self-promoter, which is often innocuous and occasionally beneficial. When he's spurned, though, he becomes a petulant child.

    unacceptable given the unstable situation around the world. You do not see any other candidates beating a dead horse. If Mr. Trump becomes President, then I will seriously consider moving to another country.

  93. Trump is an ego driven materialistic fool!

    Thumbs Up, Jerry!!! Good call!

    I can't stand Trump. He's a nasty, greedy man. He's got some serious issues with insecurity. Anyone who constantly has to talk themselves up by showing off everything they have as "the best of the best" can't have values any deeper than a surface scratch. He even has rooms in his home trimmed in gold. Do you really want a man like this running the country?

    Trump doesn't want money to get to your wallet, he wants it in HIS. That's the way most of these Republican politicians are, they make you think that they care about bringing you up but they don't, they only care about building more wealth for themselves. It's actually rather sad. I've seen people wthout two nickles to rub together voting for Republicans. Republicans don't care about the middle class or the poor, they only care about their fellow rich buddies and making more money for Themselves.

    If your income is not up there with the top 1% of the nation, then you really should be cautious about supporting Republicans in general and Trump in particular. I've been reading a lot about how the wealthy are only about 1% of the population but control close to 40% of the money – and that amout is growing. That means that for the remaining 99% of the population, we only share 60% of the money in this country. Anyone see the imbalance? I'm planning to watch "The One Percent" about how that 1% of the population is taking control. I hope others here will watch as well.

    I'll be the first to admit that I do not follow politics as much as I should, nor do I have much of an understanding on how things work on captial hill.
    It does seem, however, that we are all quick to place the blame on our president for many of the issues that America faces today. I, like so many of you are frustrated with prices of goods in our country. But who do we blame? I do understand that as our leader, Presedent Obama has a responsibility to look out for all Amercians, and I think he's trying.
    Regardless of whether or not I, or anyone else for that matter, thinks he's doing a good job is irrelavent. We, as Americans, have the right to question our countries leadership. But, I believe that it is important that we support them as much as possible too. With that being said, I really thought it was bad taste on Mr. Trump's behalf of making an issue out of where our Presedent was born. Even if the presedent was born outside the U.S., that's what makes American so great. Everyone has an opportunity to succeed. I'm not a fan a Jerry Seinfeld. Never have been. However, I completely understand and agree with his decision to not be associated with Mr. Trump. It was nice that he still made a contribution to the cause.

    Just my two cents.

Aside from his absurdity he offers no strong principals, no identifiable integrity and a complete lack of political experience or knowledge.

You have an investigative team over there in Hawaii? What, like they can find something new out – sounds like a lot of talk to boost the ratings for your TV show – which I don't watch.

    You talk a great talk, but lack any real substance. You say a lot in general terms, but honestly provide no substance to the debate. You would as President claim to tax China 25% or so. Ya, they are the biggest economy in the world and really don't need the US anymore. They will call the loan in on trillions of dollars and your currency will tank even more than it is now.

    Oh, I'm so glad I am Canadian too. Our newest Federal Election – 6 weeks and its over with on May 2. Even 6 weeks is too long. How many times do I need to listen to a politician say the same thing over and over?

Why should Trump get credit for raising money for these children when it is the talent of Seinfeld, not Trump that is generating the revenue. Trump wants to ignore that it is his poisoned and ignorant political agenda that has actually caused harm to the fund-raising for these kids. Their is nothing wrong with disagreeing with this or any president. But the "birther" agenda is as ignorant as the agenda that said the Bush Administration secretly brought down the World Trade Centers.

    I am proud to see Mr. Seinfeld stand up for what he believed in this matter. I think it takes a lot of courage to go against the popular view and take the hard road and he did just that. He also showed a lot of class by continuing to make a contribution to Eric Trump Foundation and to [St. Jude]. After all, that is the purpose of a benefit, to raise money. I also think Mr. Trump displayed a lot of immaturity in this situation. He seems to think that whenever someone does not agree with him, he can just run them over. He did the same thing a couple of years ago with Rosie and the pageant incident.

    Well I guess there must be some validity to a lot of people including myself and Donald Trump whether Obama really was born in the US and thus has any legitimacy to be president in the first place. Maybe Obama should really consider disclosing his official birth certificate to the media before the 2012 presidential election takes off.

    These birthers have to get clear what their gripe with Obama is. Is it his place of birth or their perception of him doing a lousy job? If it is the latter then call your association lousy president (LP) or something. The birthers is a biased crappy organisation and good that Seinfel pulled out.

    The initial deregulation was Ronald Regan and Reganomics. 12 years of that and The distance of rich to poor grew.... Donald Trump is the master of the system he learns to play within the lines and knows how to make the most of it.

    My hat off to him because he is doing what he does best. However If even Obama was not born in this exact country His MOTHER WAS A CITIZEN... That means he has until 18 to claim his US CITIZENSHIP... Because his mother is a natural born citizen he would still be able to run according to Federal Laws.

    It was probably a difficult thing for Seinfeld to do. More people need to refuse to associate with the Trump name. Perhaps Donald should change his name to P. T. Barnum. His act is nothing but a side show. He is simply interviewing to fill Glen Beck's time slot on Fox. His boring show on NBC is what, 20th in the Nielsen ratings? NBC is going to cancel him and his enormous ego couldn't take the hit. If Trump was making the billions he claims in his other businesses then he wouldn't be doing this tv show. He wants to work for Fox so he can put filet on the table.

All ACORN's fault and no one in "mainstream" media ever talks about this. Obama was a staunch supporter of ACORN and handed out leaflets for them. Thanks idiot! Foreigners are NOT allowed to be president. This is why the Birther issue matters. The Founding Fathers did not want to allow foreign influence running the USA. Obama has proven this true by apologizing to other nations and handing money to them and now starting a 3rd war with no approval or provocation. Can't wait for Nov. 2012. If we make it that far.

    I think everybody needs to slow down here. All of you who send such stipid critical posts look just like, or worse than the man, or men in this case. It makes me wonder where all the intelligence in the American people went because these posts sound like just that, a bunch of morons sounding off. Not everybody, there is some good struff here. About Trump, yes, he does seem to ramble and he gets stuck on certain issues but there's no denieing that the man can make money, and he can get out of bankruptcy. What better person to save this country from the economy that we have. Some of the posts i see here are a lot like how I feel about the politicians that we have right now and what we have had. I can't believe how a group of people can behave like a bunch of kids and basically hog tie the president with all their special interest, pork barrel requests into making sure that no progress is made to insure the growth, not failure of our country. These are people that we pay for, people that vote in their own pay raises. One thing I know about Trump, he is a straight shooter who tells it like it is and has a take no prisoners approach to anything that he does. Somebody like that could repair all the damage that eveybody, who have NO corporate experience have done to this country. I DON'T CARE IF TRUMP STUMBLES ON A FEW ISSUES HERE AND THERE OR IF HE OBSESSES A LITTLE ON ISSUES LIKE THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE. WHAT I CARE ABOUT IS IF HE CAN FIX THE ECONOMY AND CREAT JOBS, OR NOT. IF HE IS WORTH 6 BILLION DOLLARS AFTER GOING BANKRUPT (WAY BACK IN 1992?), then that is who I feel will do well with what we have now in this country. The rest of you, stop and think because you sound like Trump seems to sound, like a bunch of buffoons and morons. At least some of you are mature enough to leave proper message when you leave post rather than use these posts to just breath a lot of hot air.

    No politician should ever be held to a standard of never being questioned or criticized. The results of such behavior inevitably lead to widespread corruption and abuse of power. Wake up Jerry and wake up America!

    Hey Audit247, maybe you need to practice what you preach when it comes to counciling other's about the facts. 90 votes were cast in favor of Gramm-Leach-Bliley in the Senate and 38 of those were Democrats. 362 votes were cast in favor of the bill in the House and 155 of those were Democrats..... If you do the math you can see the only reason the bill was veto proof was because of the Democratic support for the bill .... ie without the Democrat support the Republicans wouldn't have had the two thirds votes necessary to override a Clinton Veto IF Clinton had been inclined to do so.. ie Clinton and a unified Democrtaic opposition vote in congress could have defeated the bill so calling it a Republican initiative is either disingenuous, ignorant or both.

Well, I have learned that, that is not the case. Neither Perot or Trump have any idea as to how politics work. Yeah, yeah, we need fresh blood, but when "the Donald" says he would put OPEC countries on notice and he would take China into the backroom and tell them everything they import to the US is going to have a 25% import tax added, well, the average American is really going to get screwed. You cannot run the economy and create jobs and pay for everything without raising taxes, did I say also fight 2 wars for almost 10 years. Try going on vacation for 10 years, using all your cash and maxing out your Credit Cards and then try to buy a house and a new car without any money. That's where America is today.

The legislative regulations gave loans to anyone still breathing...those loans get charged off as a loss but the loans paper work by liberal deregulatory bills allowed the contracts to be sold like penny stocks...billions of bad loans. Given to the poor that had no business gettibg credit to begin with. The ball was in motion since Carter's administration so when you start pointing fingers do some real research, you can read thye bills and who passed then via a google search,start with Jimmy Carter and work your way to present date...enter the terminology loans for the poor under developed and yiu will find what you need to see what took place.

    The Donald is NOT going to run for President. This is just another attempt to generate publicity for himself.

    Yes ajbt, the deregulation took place during the clinton, administration. However, you should get your facts straight, it was a republican congress, had clinton vetoed the bill for deregulation, they had enough support in both the house and senate to over ride the veto. So before you tell others to get there facts staright, maybe you should do the same

    each president lives with the legacy of the prior administration. clinton is one of the most popular presidents in recent memory; however he signed NAFTA and with the stroke of a pen he killed textile and manufacturing in the US. Bush was not a smart man – but he dealt with the legacy of a Clinton Adm that ignored the growing threat from outside the US in the middle east, as well as ground zero for US economic collapse. just look at the last election – i am saddened by the fact the best possible canidates we had to pick from were Obama and McCain..?

If trump is a joke why give him the time of day? ignore him and he'll fizzle away. But this constant obsession with trump makes most of us believe there's something about him that scares the hell out of the obama state run media. Such as Trump can beat Obama, and that's unsettling to the lame stream media. Hence the constant attacks on his character and looks.

She has the FULL support of her party. In addition, in 2008, hwr colleague sent an email of a watermelon patch on the front of the White House lawn with a caption that said, "there will be no easter egg hunt this year". This, of course was a racially derogatory insult aimed at the black First family. So, racial animus ("the race card") exists on both sides of the aisle. Unfortunate, but true.

Do really think THIS guy, if he gets into office, will have the working class people's best interests in mind. The only two thing thats ever on this guys mind is power and money. The last thing this guy will fight for is a "better America" and instead his energy will be focused on keeping the rich 1% right where their at and the working class( who are the ones that truly keep this country alive and running and not the rich), keep them fighting for everything they have.

I'm a black American and know everyone's frustration with how this country is heading towards socialism and known of us will be able to afford a home or food or send our spoiled kids to college. But, we voted O'bama in. We can only blame ourselves. We have to show America what Martin taught us. The character of a man is more important than his color. I stopped drinking the koolaid. You should too! Wake up America- black and white and red and brown and everything in between. We have to vote O'bama out in 2012. Or this country will go bankrupt. Spend that.

      Too bad he is spot on about the issues. Dems got it wrong, they lost to the teaparty in Nov 2010. They will lose again in 2012. Like the annointed one said to John M. in 2009 after winning the Whitehouse, Elections have consequences. A shape lesson Nancy P. learnt last year. Be wise, as you are about people. See what the grand puba O'bama really is and what his real agenda is – end the USA as we know it. George Soros, his new best friend has advised him how to get that done. Time to get prepared, middle east up roar is moving west... Just pay close attendtion... And decide who has this countries best interest in mind...

    we can blame the current economy on everyone under the sun but it won't see an immediate response for years to come. obama has not done what he said he would do on some issues but he has on others. bush may not have been the best president ever but think about this...when you were sitting there, watching the towers burn and watching people literally die right in front of you, didn't you want some sort of retribution? ya, the war didn't go as planned and i would like them home, too, but i believe it was done with the pure intention of ceasing terrorist attacks. besides, this isn't about politics. seinfeld should have made his feelings known about trump and gone anyway, for the kids. children are more important than everything else, including political differences.

As a businessman, your hubby (if he were – God forbid and people were actually stupid enough to vote for him – ever to actually become president) would make sure that big business got so many breaks that, just like GW Bush, he would single-handedly drive us non-millionaire/non-billionaire people even more into total poverty because big business and the rich would benefit from your hubby's big businessman "take care of me first and screw everybody else who isn't rich nor big business" ways. Sorry Melanie, you may have married a billionaire and live in the lap of cushy uber-luxury but the rest of us who have to struggle just to pay our bills, keep a roof over our heads and keep food in our mouths would like to say to your hubby, "YOU'RE FIRED!" and will never ever vote your rich businessman hubby into the presidency of this country.

I'm not a fan of everything Obama has done, but I will vote for him again. Do you know why? Because a) we ARE much better off economically than when he was elected, and b) Obama opponents too often fall back on that birth certificate crap and other such nonsense when complaining about him.
      And p.s.- Your generation was great and all, but not SO great that you can dare elevate yourself above the current generation. Ask any black Americans living here during the 50's and 60's. Your age doesn't give you any credibility.

    Donald Trump is the face of greed and everything wrong with our country. The only reason people support and listen to what comes out of the Flop is because they are also greedy and want his lifestyle. It's one thing to be successful. It's another while using humility and not stepping on others to achieve it. Sure, he gives back to charity. But if he didn't have that kind of money do you think he would spend his time with charitable causes? Doubt it. It's all about making Donald worth more, either on paper or in the media. He does nothing for the betterment of mankind, only for the betterment of Trump.

    As for Seinfeld, his decision is based on principal. He has his right to his own opinion and in his mind Trump crossed the line with his public discourse towards the president. It does nothing to improve the condition of the U.S. to keep dragging this birth issue through the media. Trump knows this is going to get him attention and looky there, it has.

      I think about 3 or 4 times it has been breifly mentioned. Yet prior to the election it was everyday, demonstrations-counter demonstrations,etc. the fervor was at a high pitch. The basic message was Muslims were not to be trusted, they are disrepectful, secretly they are trying to take over.

      A repoublican would say 'Now I am not saying Obama is a Muslim, I don't believe that, however just imagine if he was'. It is called word association. 'Just imagine if the Muslims were trying to take over, they got Obama in the White House already, but I dont think Obama is a Muslim'.

      I will bet a steak dinner that 90 days prior to the election next year, you will see anti-Muslim sentiements again rich fervor pitch. Do I think Republicans are racist?? If the anti-Muslim rhetoric reaches full pitch next year, you had better also.

      Another uneducated simpleton placing blame on the wrong person. Bill Clinton deregulated the banking industry in 1999 which allowed the plethora of sub prime loans which in turn destroyed the housing industry. Do any of you actually do any reading or do you just repeat what you hear other people say?

      It was a Republican bill to deregulate the banks in 1999 with a controlling
      Republican Senate and Congress.

      And Bella,
      If you remember what was in the air after 911, if you spoke out against anything government related or against Bush you became suspect for being anti American.
      "You're either with us, or against us

      The phrase "you're either with us, or against us" and similar variations are used to depict situations as being polarized and to force witnesses and bystanders to become allies or lose favor. The implied consequence of not joining the team effort is to be deemed an enemy."

      With the banks having a free-for-all and the Patriot Act firmly in place to keep fear looming most of us unfortunately did or said nothing.

      Embarrassed by our president at the time we just went about our lives living beyond our means buying homes and condos for no money down while keeping our mouths shut and our heads low.

      And Bella,
      I like a million other Americans were busy buying homes I could not afford with no money d

    Meanwhile, why does Trump think that occasional success in business qualifies you to be leader of the free world? The world is not a business deal....and anyone who sees things only in those terms will be a disaster for everyone.

The top contributors to the FED and Wall Street have been in the white house for EVERY administration since Reagan. 9/11 was planned during the Clinton administration, and the Clinton Administration along with Wall Street enabled bad mortgage loans to be bought which led to our current housing crisis. Everyone is responsible- this is not a Dem vs. GOP issue. To simply say that because nothing bad happened during the Clinton years only illustrates the short-mindedness of the masses.

      To be fair, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley act was a republican effort in 1999 to deregulate banks, but Clinton signed it. Be that as it may, the Afghanistan/Iraq wars put a substantial burden on our deficit/debt. It wouldn't be fair to say Clinton had nothing to do with it, he had a little bit. Say he had another 4 years - its hard to speculate.

      But to say that Bush just hoped on in, and oh golly look at all those terrible things that happened without his knowledge! It would be naive to think that Bush didn't have a huge hand on this. The 911 attacks? He had warnings of it, detailed in WH briefings months before. Hugely expanded government (ala Homeland dept) thus govt spending. The only reason the deficit didn't show until now is because Bush didn't put the wars in the budget trying to fool us. NOW the republicans are crying about money, now that Obama finally put in the budget.

      First the actually surplus came from the economic boom that occurred because of the dot com era. Second clinton signed the deregulation of banking because it was apart of his compromise with the republican ran congress so he could implement the post as you go program he used to pay down the deficit. Lastly when bush got into office he and the republican congress deregulated mortgage requirements. If you look at the current republican plan it is to decrease regulation and put everything in the hands of the private market. The same ones who were running to the feds for help after they got to greedy.

      Excellent and accurate summary of the state of affairs!

      The present state of the economy was handed us by the Republicans who in the Bush administration worried not at all about deficits. Instead they touted "stimulating" the economy with tax breaks for the wealthy, and an end to "burdensome" regulations. Some even went so far as to argue that we lived in a "new economic age" where old rules may not necessarily apply. To all of this they added increased military adventures (which of course cost much more than the Bush administration prognosticated at the time -remember?

      Well, now we see where all that got us. An economic disaster and a military and diplomatic quagmire!

Jerry Seinfeld pulled out of the fundraiser but gave two contributions. Trump's response was childish, egotistical, and designed only to give him more publicity. Trump could have responded privately but chose not to because his ego couldn't stand to let an "affront" go unanswered. As for Brett Michaels being "disgusted" by Seinfeld's pullout, he probably didn't have anything else to do that day.

I have done this for years, reality is I spent my money to raise money for Justin Bieber when he was 8 years old and look how that paid off. Anyway Trump is a real jerk and does not belong in the white house, he is like the bully in your neighborhood.

      Anderson Cooper, the more time you give to this nasty fella, the less time you have to spend on the important people in the world. You can't argue with a mad man. He has gone over the edge. Listen to Jeffrey Toobin and forget his conspiracy theory and lies. What's not surprising is that Americans are soo sheeplike they may pick up what he is saying and run with it. Trump should be sent to some remote area of Antarctica to live out his old days. ...and that's being kind and in line with your terms of service. Love you Anderson. You're soo smart.

      No words can describe how Donal Trump is the most foolish person in America! He wil not win in 2012!

      For all Trump's talk of America's greatness I find it a bit odd that he has a strong tendency to avoid American women in marriage.

      Just who is this Jerry Seinfeld. Never heard of him. Oh yeah! He was the so called comedian who had a bunch of colleagues who were 3 times funnier than he was. JS was always a whiner on his show and in real life.

      Seinfeld in this case is acting like a 2 year old. Just what business is it of his as to what Trump does or says just as it is no business of Trumps as to what he does. Grow a pair Seinfeld and stick to your commitments once you have made them.

      Resort to Racism? Post Election, how many times have you heard about the Mosque being built close to Ground Zero??

      I think about 3 or 4 times it has been breifly mentioned. Yet prior to the election it was everyday, demonstrations-counter demonstrations,etc. the fervor was at a high pitch. The basic message was Muslims were not to be trusted, they are disrepectful, secretly they are trying to take over.

      A repoublican would say 'Now I am not saying Obama is a Muslim, I don't believe that, however just imagine if he was'. It is called word association. 'Just imagine if the Muslims were trying to take over, they got Obama in the White House already, but I dont think Obama is a Muslim'.

      I will bet a steak dinner that 90 days prior to the election next year, you will see anti-Muslim sentiements again rich fervor pitch. Do I think Republicans are racist?? If the anti-Muslim rhetoric reaches full pitch next year, you had better also.

      I think it is only fair that Mr. Trump now supplies his Birth certificate! Cause with hair like that I'm not sure if he is even from this planet!

      @mhl that was a great post and second your opinion. Donald can't stand to have the spotlight pulled off of him. Jerry is making a contribution to both charities so that is what it is about raising money. As far as Donald running for president it find it funny talking about how Obama is running the economy... How many times has Mr. Trump filed for bankrupcy four (4) times. That little fact is food for thought.

      Seinfeld get out of politics – you're a comedian, that's your job. You let down very sick kids and an organization that is helping those stricken children. Join Obamas campaign and be a spokesperson – that would be an appropriate forum for your political views.

      Remember the Seinfeld episode where Jerry stole a Marble Rye from an old lady walking down a NY street? How about the JS last episode where he stood by and smirked as a poor fat guy was mugged, doing nothing to help him? What about the time he turned his back on a 'true-love' girl friend so that he could get another cup of the Soup Nazi's soup?

      Seinfeld portrayed incidents from his own life. Now he has canceled on St. Jude's hospital benefit program. Jerry Seinfeld is a no-class bum!
