If there is one thing we know about Donald Trump, we know he doesn't back down from a fight - yet, we feel like he's going to be doing a lot of fighting in the coming weeks, especially if he is serious about running for Presdient.
Last week, Bill Cosby was on The Today Show and blasted the Donald about his Presidential "campaign" and told him to "run or shut up." A pretty tame blast, if you ask us, but it apparently riled up Trump so much that he felt the need to release a full-fledged statement about it. The statement reads:
The other day on The Today Show, right after I was interviewed by Meredith Vieira, a terrific person and reporter, I happened to watch Bill Cosby who was on at the end of the show. While I have never been a fan of Cosby’s, I had always assumed he liked or respected me because every time I met him—the last time at the David Letterman show where I preceded him as a guest—he was always so nice, saying “let’s get together”—asking me out to dinner, and being polite to the point of offering to buy me a suit because he has a “great tailor.”
In any event, as I watched the show, the subject of Donald Trump came up. 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.
Oh, get over yourself, Donald. The guy simply was pointing out the obvious - you're wishy-washy when you come to your "plans" for running for President. You're teasing everyone with a will-I, won't-I game and it's childish and unnecessary…just like this statement.
