Donald Trump: Things are not looking good for Bill Cosby

There’s nothing I love more than a good ol’ fashioned feud, so thanks, Donald Trump, for humoring me!

Following Bill Cosby’s rant on Today, in which he said Trump should run for president or “shut up,” (video below).

Trump just released a retaliatory statement. The central message is one that anyone in middle school or on an MTV reality show will have heard countless times: don’t talk shit about me behind my back, say it to my face. In part the statement reads:

I was surprised to hear him blabber, somewhat incoherently “you run or shut up.” The hatred was pouring out of his eyes when he said this. As I am sure he must know I cannot run until this season of Celebrity Apprentice ends. I know that he has taken a lot of heat over the years in that he seems to be talking down to the people he’s talking to and purportedly trying to help. Actually, based on the way he acted, things are not looking too good for Cosby.

I wish he would be more honest, and if he doesn’t want me to run because he’s obviously an Obama fan, he should state the reasons and not come into my “green room” in front of numerous witnesses and treat me like his best friend, only to denigrate me when I’m not around. Sadly, he got more attention talking about me than he did on the merits of his own appearance—maybe he is not as dumb as I thought.

Your move, Cosby.

    Hi Birther person. Why is President Obama helping Americans unacceptable to you and Trump? I accuse you of rejecting President Obama not because he is black, not because his mother had him in the US, but because God telling us to love one another as he has loved us is COMPLETELY over your head. Why use language like “Bill Cosby’s ‘rant’” he did not rant and your writer or you for that matter or a coward by not posting your name to this ill prepared message. Have a blessed day.
