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.

blah blah blah    

Donald needs to get off his sit and spin
The truth must hurt because it hit him like a ton of bricks for him to lash out and carry on the way he did.
Loved it when Rosie told "THE DONALD" sit on it and spin my friend!!!!!
Laughed my ass off when she slung her hair to the side while imitating the tub of horse sh*t faced old geezer.
Hell, everyone in their right mind knows NO WOMAN would touch him with a ten foot pole if it went for his almighty dollar!!!!!!!!!
Donald is nothing but the smelly ass fart that he is

As with the Rosie vs. Kelly Ripa saga, then the Rosie vs. Asian (Chinese) we now have to watch Rosie vs. The Don. Does anyone see a common thread in all of this? I think to solve all of these ridiculous antics that we are forced to watch on every news channel we should just remove Rosie from TV! It was done once before when her show was canceled...can't we please do it again?

The Donald has his nerve to comment on Rosie being fat. I'm pretty damn sure that he doesn't have wash board abs. His current wife must be a great actress to pretend to enjoy him shagging her night after night. *gag*

Trump is so obnoxious... He's milking this for all the publicity. It's a good thing he has money otherwise he wouldn't have been able to get all the beautiful model wives of his.
