Donald Trump -- $2 Million 'Roast' Victim

3/10/2011 10:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Trump raised $2 million for charity in New York last night ... and all he had to do was suffer through an epic comedic beatdown on national television.

Donald Trump Roast

It was all for a roast on Comedy Central -- hosted by Seth MacFarlane -- The Donald volunteered to be the human punching bag ... and TMZ has learned, he walked away $2 million richer.

According to sources, Trump was completely against taking part in the show -- but when he found out how much he'd get paid ... he stepped right up.

Thankfully, we're told Trump plans to donate his ENTIRE paycheck to charity -- but so far, no word on which good cause stands to profit off his bruised and battered ego.

Please don't run for President. You'll bankrupt the US just like your other hotels.

It's all about the money and his ego. He only cares about Donald. Bought his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. I am joining others in boycotting him and his show. He's a hypocrit. Married three times, but doesn't believe in civil rights for gays, so you know the charity won't be for the LGBT community.

I've liked your posts here, jerk (even with the obvious shameless plugs of your site :P) But a Trump-Hair joke? That's way too easy, man! You can do better than that!

And.....this is the man who feels he should be the President of the United States of America?!

Talk about the dumbing down of America......

Just the fact that he has done reality tv alone, makes me feel he has the jugdement skills of a Jersey Shore Slob. There are high school students who I would vote for over this guy.


HOW many wives is he on now? How many kids all over the nation is that Donald? My goodness the Repugs have the bottom of barrel to keep scraping from I guess........Newt is his twin.

Crazy is still in fashion for the party of knuckleheads.


Ah, yes the party of family values is alive and well, and still a boat load of hypocrites.

He won't run for president. He wouldn't be able to withstand the scrutiny that comes along with the process. Once the media starts poking into his financial history (i.e., bankruptcies) and personal history (i.e., marriages and infidelities), he'll have a more concilliatory tone.

Disregard the polls. They're biased anyway and used only to sell newspapers or web hits. These were the same polls that said Obama and McCain were neck and neck throughout the campaign period. Then, on a election night, a second after the California precincts closed, Obama was declared the winner in a landslide.

Coming from someone who thought Romney would've been a better opponent.

"FREE" publicity for a future presidential candidate AND he makes a sizeable donation.

Trump trumps in the PR business.

He probably could've simply donated his own money to the charity of his choice instead of getting Roasted. I'm sure they dished out a boatload of abuse, yet, he took it. Seems like a selfless act, kind of shocking really...

"Trump was completely against taking part in the show..."

Right! He could have just written them a check as a tax write off, but that wouldn't have given him the attention he craves.
