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.

I have to give him credit for one thing. I've never heard of his kids being in any situation like the Hiltons,Spears, Lohans, Sheen, or the like.

OK So "The Donald" doesn't want to change his ugly hairstyle but TRIM YOUR EYEBROWS DONALD! It blows me away how many old men don't groom their brows. I wonder if he has dirty toenails too? YUCK.

Why would a man like Trump associate himself with Sleeze Doggy Dogg? He'll not only catch fleas but also the diseases they transferred!

When will we know what 'charity' and why did he point both hands to himself when he said "all will be given to (as he points to himself) charity'? Just wondering. Body language tells all

I thought the entire roast tasteless and definitely not funny. Donald Trump has made a huge success of his life..why tear him down for it?

This 'roast' could be the defining moment in Trump's potential Presidential candidacy...it certainly demonstrates the 'moral fiber' of the country. What a bunch of trashy comedians who couldn't wait to denigrate this very successful man. They are all so envious of him, but they mostly embarrased themselves, quite painful to watch. Trumps motivation may be part of a campaign strategy that may backfire on him or being 'cool' may make him President.

Sure why not. He gets a free 2M he can donate to charity and now his Income Taxes are a piece of cake. That's a nice little tax break to get for just sitting around being made fun of for an hour. If I were him I'd do it too.
