Donald: Let Them Eat Steak

8/23/2008 1:31 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Trump clearly didn't want to talk about why he is not becoming the proud owner of Ed McMahon's McMansion, at least not outside STK last night.

Last night, Donald canceled his appearance on Larry King's show, after stories surfaced that a dude is buying Ed's home, which was on the brink of foreclosure. Last week Trump said he'd buy the house and let Ed live in it for life.

Now Donald says someone came in and outbid him, but here's the deal ... the guy who's buying it is moving in, so where will poor Ed go? Why couldn't Donald up the ante? Was this all for publicity? Never.

Are you kidding me? Donald Chump is for no one but himself. promoting himself, talking about himself, and loving no one more than himself. Things have been to quite around him so he had to get his name out there again and what better way to get free publicity. Its no skin off his nose if he doesn't follow through with this because it was all for show. He got his wish so he'll move on. NEXT!

It wouldn't surprise me if Donald is behind the buy out. He realized he bid to low and in order to make more money he has someone come along and out bid him using Trumps money. Its a win win situation for chumpTrump.

Uh...firefly...if he bids MORE money, he makes LESS money. I think you should send your degree back to the Cracker Jack's box you got it from.

He did this for the publicity. Whoever outbid him, is now the "winner" over The Donald. New flash everyone...Donald is worth about neg $3B.

When you owe the bank $100,000 you have a problem. When you owe the bank $3,000,000,000, THEY have a problem.

Publicity for this strangely coincides with announicing new Celeb Apprentice.

If DT was altruistic, you would see him getting Ed on Celeb Apprentice, and NBC paying for his mortgage for all royalties.

THINK PEOPLE....it aint so hard.

Uh Duh, your right, I wasn't thinking straight when I wrote what I did. I was just so pissed off while I was writing that I didn't realize until after I posted it and couldn't do anything to change it.

Does this all mean Ed has to move? That sucks. I think Donald should take this opportunity to pull some innovative real estate deal that allows Ed to win out somehow and shows that DT wasn't just putting up a half-hearted attempt. He did it for Ed, not for the house, so show us some fancy maneuvering. It will be fun and probably educational to investors too. Ed deserves better than to be subject to some other buyout at this point, don't we all think?

you will vote for Obama if:

1.You are weak minded
2. You are looking for a savior to make it all better
3. You heard on TV that he was popular
4. You watch infomercials and buy whatever they sell
5. You are a racist
6. You are uneducated
7. You want free stuff, money and welfare
8.You want to lose the war to end the war.
9.You hate America
10. You are not informed.
Just say Nobama unless you want to live in a country that panders, and apologizes to terrorists and enemies.
