Does The Donald hate fat people?

trump_fat_getty_370-1
The thrice-married (to two models and a beauty queen), hair-challenged tycoon responded to Rosie O'Donnell's criticism of his handling of Miss USA's troubles -- by calling O'Donnell "fat little Rosie," a "fat slob," and saying "I'd like to take some money out of her fatass pockets," among other weight-directed insults. It's not the first time he's commented on size.

Just two months after current wife Melania gave birth to son Barron, the Donald was quick to point out her extra weight to the New York Post. Columnist Andrea Peyser described a visit to the family in their palatial Trump Tower pad: "I tell Melania she's lost her baby weight. Donald arrives just in time to correct me. 'She's almost lost all the baby weight,' he says, hanging his suit jacket on the crib and loosening his tie. 'Actually, Melania is probably the only woman I've ever known who can concentrate a 4-pound weight increase almost entirely on her cleavage.'" Four pounds.

In May of this year, a profanity-spewing Trump served as guest auctioneer at a swanky New York charity dinner. After one generous man bid $16,000 on a vacation to Costa Rica, Trump invited the portly gentleman onstage, crowing to the crowd when he got there, "You see, he wants to catch Montezuma's Revenge and lose 50 or 60 pounds!" How gracious.

And there's "The Apprentice", returning to NBC for a sixth season in January, for which Donald personally approves all candidates. Competing in the upcoming round, much as in the five previous, are 10 svelte females.

TMZ reached out to NAAFA (National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance) to see how they felt on the matter. Spokeswoman Peggy Howell said, "Rather than be the bigger man, Donald attacked Rosie's physical appearance by calling her fat. We in NAAFA are not offended by the use of the word 'fat' as a descriptor, but do find it offensive when one uses it as a weapon of personal attack." She also pointed out that "Both of these intelligent, successful people serve as role models and their behavior is inexcusable."

A spokeswoman for NBC was mum on Trump's comments.

I like Rosie except for her VERY LOUD voice. I like people who tell it like it is. That's why we like Rosie.

She was right about the stupideness of king Trump about "good behaviour". And what's all that stupid thing about not dating anyone when crowned Miss USA? or avoiding any bad behaviour?

What does it teach? : HYPOCRISY about the fact that EVERYONE has demons, even Misus USA, and needs to work at beating evil every minute, every day of our existence.

Oh my effing gawd! Thank you Rosie! Someone finally said what we have all thought for years and years~The Donald is an ass! He panders to false beauty (and stupid) stereotypes of women because that is exactly the type of women he marries! Maybe he's hoping that he can marry the pageant queen he defends... in the event Melanoma doesn't work out! I mean is fired!

You know, Rosie is just not funny anymore! She used to be pleasant and I really enjoyed her show. Now she's just on this trip to save all the gay people of the world! Tell me something....when she "came out of the closet" isn't that supposed to be a relief, a huge weight off your chest, you can finally have peace in your decisions????? She is SOOOOO angry and has this huge chip on her shoulder! Barbara Walters was an idiot for thinking Rosie would be a good addition to The View...which I do not watch anymore....thinks she regrets her decision now???!!! As for The Donald, he's just a dork1 But the bottom line is the pagent is one of his many endeavors and he has the final say, period! Me personally, I feel that Miss USA, Miss Universe, etc...are expected to carry themselves a certain way. Tara is not and I feel she should be let go, just my opinion. And Miss Teen. I'm sorry but when an organization like MADD drops you....YOU'RE SCREWED!!!!! And rightly so!

Well, lets look at the big picture........

Rosie is a mean-spirited, bigot. Gay, woman, fat....those don't matter..she's just not a nice person when she's not PRing.

Trump is a mean-spirited, bigot. Bald, chubby, wealthy to a Gatsby-degree...those don't matter...he's just not a nice person when he's not PRing.

Both people we can do without.....yet here we are, commenting on both, and their shows will still have many viewers, despite who they offend.

I say....give them a talk show and let them co-host.

THEN...maybe I'll watch...maybe....

To the person above...20 IS adult...maybe not to the parents of today who baby their children and scream ZOMG when Janet Jackson shows her breast on TV, deprive their children of living and make them socially inept...but at 20 she made an adult decision as an adult....maybe we should take the opportunity to take a nice hard look at fame and hollywood and the lifestyles many in the country idolize....

No...we won't...because at the end of the day...we don't care....

So Rosie, you racist moron....and Trump, you pretentious ass.....let's get it on...because its really all about ratings....right?

blah blah blah    

Donald Trump is only partial to the weak, unspoken and mousy type of girls/women.
He is intimidated with any female who is mentally challenged, outspoken, opinionated, smart sensed or even educated for that matter!
Who the hell does he think he is to be so unruly and foul mouthed? And to think he had to throw up his level of education with his attack on rosie. He didn't come across to me as being so educated. Running your moth is not a form of education as far as I'm concerned. It only makes you look like the jerk that your are inside and out.

GO DONALD!

Rosie started it. She's a Bi%ch!

I hope she gets clobbered as well as the ratings of her dumb show "V" something or another. What a joke. Bunch of ladies on there blabbing and saying stupid stuff, trying to get ratings without thinking about the consequences.

DONALD IS 100% RIGHT ABOUT ROSIE.
She attacks everyone and Barbara lets her......
SO that makes Barbara Walters just as REPULSIVE as Rosie.

I stopped watching the View when Rosie came on......
Rosie not only attacked Star Jones, she attacked Star's family as well.
She attacks everyone and gets away with it, I hope Donald slaps
a legel suit against her and ABC that will take them the next 10 years
to crawl out from under.

I think Rosie ran her mouth on the wrong person this time,
and its long overdue that someone puts her in her place.

Its a shame that a woman like Barbara Walters, who at one time was well
respected......now is just a PATHETIC JOKE.

What goes around comes around........
I canNOT wait until The View just GOES AWAY.
Besides its just turned into Rosie's View.
