Donald Trump, egotistical billionaire and bad hair extraordinaire, does not shy away from a good argument. From many famous spats with everyone from Rosie O’Donnell to Martha Stewart, Trump never backs down and never thinks that he is wrong. Now the Donald can add another celebrity to his list of people that he has publicly argued with: Whoopi Goldberg.
Yesterday on The View, Trump struck a cord with Whoopi Goldberg when he questioned President Obama’s citizenship. Trump was adamant that he wanted to see Obama’s birth certificate to authenticate his citizenship and claims that he must have something to hide because he has not yet presented the document to the public.
Goldberg, a die-hard Obama supporter, quickly came to his defense and called Trump’s desire to see Obama’s birth certificate “the biggest pile of dog mess I have heard in ages.” Goldberg continued to get even more riled up about the situation when Trump did not back down. Goldberg then took things a step further when she played the race card saying “it’s not because he’s black, is it?”
Trump said that race “has nothing to do with it.” But did Trump request to see a copy of Bush or Clinton’s birth certificate? Did he go on national TV and raise a raucous about Bush’s eligibility for the presidency? I think not.
So am I calling the Donald a racist? No, not necessarily. I just think he is so egotistical that he really thinks that anyone who is not born into an aristocratic family is not worthy of such as high-powered position. He seems to believe that only those who went to elite preschools and vacationed on the shores of Martha’s Vineyard as children will ever be smart enough to lead this country.
Before watching The View yesterday, I thought that Donald was making a comeback. With his success on The Apprentice and his lack of brainless comments lately, I was beginning to like Mr. Trump again. But his comments yesterday about Obama’s citizenship quickly halted his good fortune in my book. Welcome back to the “dumbest celebrities” list, Donald. You have been missed.
