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.

Dont we have enough fighting in the world. I wish everyone would just stop focusing on all this negative stuff. Life is too short for hate and Rosie and Trump should seek help. Is this what they want to teach their children? No wonder we have war and murder. How sad :(

Cmon, Donald Trump just want to be a role model ok? He worked so hard to be in good shape. I mean look at him, he has no double chin and keeps a 32 inch waistline. He is not fat so he's upset why America could not do the same. I understand his frustration. He really just want to be a role model.

Out of all the things Donald Trump's has said about Rosie, I couldn't BELIEVE that he would call her fat right on TV. It sounded cold, insulting and he could have said instead that he doesn't like her on The View. And Rosie didn't have to attack Donald and his unbelievable wealth. It's been over the roof with the insults toward each other.

Come on. Rosie started it. She is kinda big. Sure he took the bait and has a bad combover too, but look at Rosie:

1. Attacks Tom Selleck on her show Rosie for being a member of the NRA

2. Accuses Kelly Ripa of being homophobic even when Clay Aiken has never confirmed or denied his sexual preference.

3. Mocks the Chinese with worse insults than Trump's "fat" comments.

4. Attacks Trump for being the "decider" on the future of M America when like it or not he IS the decider.

Rosie loses. Trump Wins.

ROSIE ; SAID HE HAS A COMB.OVER HAIR STYLE THE LITTLE MAN CAN'T TAKE CRITICISMSIM SO THAT MEANS HE SHOULD NOT BE DISHING IT OUT. HE WOULD NEVER GET THE LOVELY YOUNG LAIDES IF NOT FOR HIS MONEY AND HE DECLARED HE WAS NEVER BANKRUPT...THAT IS A BIG LIE OR THE GOVERMENT SHOULD BE DOING AN INVESTIGATION INTO HIS TAXES. I ALSO THINK CALLING ROSIE A FAT SLOB , WELL HE SHOULD BE CHECKING THE MIRRORS IN HIS PENT HOUSE.
