  • Quotes

    • Donald Trump: I don't say my hair is my greatest strength in the world, but it's not terrible.

    • Donald Trump: (about Rosie O'Donnell) I was on an interview with Meredith Viera, and she asked me, "Why did you call Rosie fat?" And I said, "I don't use that word. Come to think of it, though, is she fat?" And Meredith said, "I'd rather not answer that." And I said, "Come on, tell me, is she fat?" She says, "I don't want to answer that!" and then "Okay, let's get off this subject." That just goes to show that news anchors have no guts. I mean, I love Meredith; she's very nice, but Rosie is a self-destructing bully who has been that way for a long time. Then Meredith asks me, "Why do you keep saying things about Rosie?" and I said, "Because you keep asking me the questions!" It was the dumbest interview I think I've ever been on.

    • Donald: (Donald continues his spat with Rosie O'Donnell by sending her a letter) Dear Rosie (O'Donnell), I hope you had a wonderful vacation with your wife - you needed the rest ... (Barbara Walters) lied to both of us! After your maniacal and foolish rant against me two weeks ago, Barbara called me from her vacation (I did not call her) ... to apologize for your behaviour. She had heard that I was going to retaliate ... and tried to talk me out of it. She ... wanted me to go on the show as soon as she got back so that she could 'patch things up' (I said no). ... she said that 'working with her is like living in hell' and, more pointedly, 'Donald, never get into the mud with pigs' and, 'don't worry, she won't be here for long.' ... (Rosie) you are very self-destructive. You must work on this for your own good!

  • Why all the uproar?

    10
    Can't understand why all the uproar about Trump's $5 Million proposal! If someone gave me that offer (that would help charity) I would gladly hand over documents. The only reason a person wouldn't jump on this offer to help charities would be that there is something in the documents that want to hide which also would indicate information that if made public would reveal the country has been lied too!!!
  • i don't really care for him, he seems really conceited and full of himself(why? i'm not sure) but i love, love, love his show the apprentice!

    he's the type of guy that has all the brains but if you put him in the middle of a forrest by himself with a toothpick and a pocket knife, in 8 weeks you'll find him in the same place still with a toothpick and a pocket knife crying to go back to his mansion....he doesn't seem to have any man skills. they should do a show where he trades places with a much, much less fortunte person like in the sticks of Tennessee and see how he handles the "real life". that would be a laugh! he wouldn't survive a day.moreless
