Tracy Morgan takes on Donald Trump, Charlie Sheen

Comedian Tracy Morgan has some not-so-funny words for headline-making stars Donald Trump and Charlie Sheen. In a new interview with PopEater, the "30 Rock" star puts each of the scandal stirrers in his place.

In recent weeks, potential GOP presidential candidate Trump has questioned whether President Barack Obama was born in the U.S. and has demanded to see his birth certificate.

"Tell him I've got it and it's in Brooklyn, and if he wants to see it come and get it," Morgan said. "Let's see if his a— will come down to Brooklyn and get it. He needs to leave the President alone, he's the President. Come on, man, nobody got no time for Donald Trump. Go build buildings, go play with your Lego set. We don't give any credence to that."

As for Sheen and his "Violent Torpedo of Truth Tour," Morgan says, "I think that's a train wreck and I feel bad for his two little kids because they're the bodies being pulled out of the train wreck. What's going to happen to them? But everybody thinks it's a joke. While this a—hole is going on stage making a fool of himself, his kids are going to suffer and don't even know it because this is a cycle of abuse."

What do you think of Morgan's remarks?

    Trump has obvious stepped on alot of toes to get where is at today.His is not a crowd pleaser or a charming person-his implications stem that aperson can be bought and sold and everybody has their asking price.He has no basic depth of character and is very shallow in his judgements.

    Trump is parading dirty laundry whereas he shouldnt go again-i never thought the guy wouldnt stoop that low. One thing for certain the life of politics makes strange bed-fellows -the curse worked his eyebrows are growing together! Some friendly advice,donald stay out of garbage cans and seedy laundrymats for your information that costs you about a dime. If you werenot paying off exwives.After it was common knowledge that Ivana soaked you pretty-good too due to irreconsirable differences, so she says but i doubt that very much.But apparently she wasnt satisfied with wee-willie wonka.

    Well said! Tracy certainly spoke for me. Britney Spears had her kids taken away for less than what Charley Sheen has done over the years. He should have a court-ordered vasectomy. If he was a nobody, child protective services would have taken kids out of his custody ages ago and he'd be doing time for being abusive to women. The guy's a pathetic coward. As far as Trump is concerned: what can you do? He's the PT Barnum of our time and the First Amendment defends his right to run his mouth no matter how ridiculous anything he's been saying is. Siiiiigh. at least he's a good father and doesn't need to beat women to feel like a man.

    I don't understand why we are requesting the birth certificate from the current President, but we have never made such a public forum out of passed Presidents, Vice-Presidents and Senators. Is this becuase his skins is a little darker then the prior Presidents. Why isn't anyone requesting to see Joe Binden's birth of certificatie? What have the Amercian people been reduced too? We need to start worry about rising food and gas prices, families living on the street or living with no lights, military personnel in several wars. Come on people lets get a grip and really think about the things that are going on in our country.

      RTG, I agree with you about 98%. The reason it's not 100% is that no one mentioned any racial context. If a black man criticized the previous administration and it was okay (Jesse Jackson), then why shouldn't anyone be able to criticize the current administration. The problem is tolerance. As Americans we are only tolerate to the speech/actions of people we agree with. The overuse of labels doesn't help either (Liberal, Conservative, Moderate, Left-leaning, Right-wing...). When we can remove the labels and everyone just be Americans, then we will have a chance at fixing the problems that confront us today.

    "He needs to leave the President alone, he's the President. Come on, man.." I guess it only matters since Tracy likes this president. I would bet he wouldn't have defended any republican president if people were 'bothering' him. hyprocrite.

    Wow you guys are brutal! Tracy has a point regarding Donald and Charlie.

    Donald Trump is messy. Like a high school girl. There are sooooo many other things to focus on with this administration. But I guess it's his perogative to harp on this.

    As for Charlie Sheen, Tracy has been where Charlie is and some how found his way out and stays sober day by day. I don't think he's speaking from the mountain top....I think he's right there in the valley and is only speaking from experience. And what he's saying is the truth.

    Someone forgot to tell Donald Trump that Hawaii is not a separate country but is actually a state in the United States of America (the country). Not because it is not located in the land mass in North America (with most of the states) doesn't mean it is not a part of the country. No joke, I seriously believe that Donald Trump doesn't know that Hawaii is actually a part of the USA. You tell 'em Tracy Morgan and I totally agree with you also on the Charlie Sheen issue.

    I agree with 'Twisted'. Tracy is a comedian. However, let me point out a couple of things to the racists of this panel:
    1-Tracy's language is no more incorrect than the language that is spewed on the plentiful 'Red Neck Comedy' tours. Really...
    2-Apparently Trump couldn't convince Americans that his hairpiece was actually his real hair, so he's trying his next lie.
    Sorry Donald... I'm not buying this one either.

    Although I'm not a supporter of Trump. I do find it rather ironic that these left leaning celebrities who have for years been able to slander and bash any politician they saw fit are now getting a taste of their own venom. We have put so much emphasis on celebrity and our entertainment culture has done more
    damage and erosion to the values are morals of this country then any foriegn army or ideals. If the media spent the resources on covering how the masses felt about the direction of our country instead of covering bickering celebrities then just maybe we could unite under our once proud flag and move forward as the great republic we could be.

    To those who think Tracy should not comment on it, first realize that He was ASKED his thoughts as a comedian by another comedian... John Stewerd on the Dailey show. To the Idiot co complained that Tracy treated violence... It was a COMEDIC response to a cartoon character (Trump) acting out bad comedy(Trumps actions). Tracy doesn't say the president shouldn't be critized.... H is saying stop critizing the president over this BS. And once again Tracy's a comedian so relating Trump to Lego's is saying (at best) go build something and ( at worst) go play with something you actually know about.

    Should Tracy be taken as THE VOICE OF REASON, no and he doesn't expect to be. but that doesn't make what he said any less valid ... just be cuase it was funny.

    oh and i bet his comment on Chalie has as much cercern as disgust mixed into the comedy, Its tough to watch someone you know, love, or simply respect self destruct and take their family down with them.... often there is nothing one can do but be there for the family, and pray for the person.

    Tracy Morgan is one of the most stupid and least talented SNL cast in decades. He couldn't make me laugh if my life depended on it. I don't see what anyone sees in this dim wits so called mumbling humor? Not one of his characters on SNL were funny and every character he did was the same character just dressed different. Far as I heard he was a bad drunk so who is he to give advice when he was as bad as Sheen only with booze. He still sounds drunk to me and makes no sense what so ever! Donald Trump is one of the biggest and now proven complete idots that NY should banish him to the Phantom Zone. He talks with the mind set of a low level street thug and expects intelligent people to believe him. Hes such a joke as you will all find out that and him running for President is about as empty as Geraldo's Capone vault. Hes not running for anything but ratings for his as%$%&hole TV show. He doesn't say anything intelligent ever if you really pay attention to him. Its always "stay tuned" and I will let you know at a later date cause hes got NOTHING, NOTHING,NOTHING intelligent to say. His casino went bankrupt and he wants to tell the President how to get the economy going? Hes lost in his hair weave for sure. Hes one BIG BAD EXPENSIVE JOKE!!!!!!

      Trump suffers from Narcissistic Personality Disorder, the same illness that Mrs. Todd Palin suffers from....Narcissistic personality disorder is a condition in which people have an inflated sense of self-importance and an extreme preoccupation with themselves.A person with narcissistic personality disorder may:

      •React to criticism with rage, shame, or humiliation

      •Take advantage of other people to achieve his or her own goals

      •Have excessive feelings of self-importance

      •Exaggerate achievements and talents

    Tracy you are right, there are more important things to talk about then if the US president was born in the US. Yes, he was. Trump needs to talk about what he can do to help the problems not just run off at the mouth.
    Charlie Sheen, no one is laughing it is way past itme to get help. You have kids man, help yourself so you can see your girls and your boys grow up. BE THERE FOR THEM, LIKE A MAN.

      Well said Pamela. Charlie is definitely a train wreck and he needs a lot of help. And I think Tracy's comments are warranted considering the behavior exhibited by both Mr. Trump and Mr. Sheen(Estevez). Self depricating humor is only funny when you've gone through it, and then recovered a better person. George Carlin was the king of that.
