Stuttering Group Rips Trump -- How D-D-D-Dare You!

5/2/2011 11:29 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A support group for stutterers is furious with Donald Trump for calling Seth Meyers a "stutterer" ... after the SNL star roasted his ass during Saturday's White House Correspondents' Dinner.

A rep for the Stuttering Foundation -- which describes itself as a "non-profit organization helping those who stutter" -- targeted the Donald in a statement to TMZ, saying, "Shame on you, Mr. Trump!"

The statement continued, "We ... find it discouraging that in 2011, Donald Trump has chosen to use the word 'stutterer' in a derogatory fashion, something to be made fun of, to describe Seth Meyers' speech at the annual White House Correspondents' dinner."

The rep adds, "We had hoped that this kind of unfortunate comment was a thing of the past."

As we previously reported, the Donald mocked Seth's joke delivery after the dinner -- calling him a "stutterer" -- but the crowd seemed to disagree ... because Trump was the only one not laughing.

Trump was born on third and wants the world to believe he hit a triple. He is what's wrong with this country. We already had a POTUS who failed over and over with daddy's money.

*** Just shut up about Donald Trump already. The fact is that Obama could have released the birth certificate a long time ago and chose not to. Why didn't he release it a long time ago? Was it to create a furor or prolong controversy? The fact is that Obama didn't release the birth certificate until Donald Trump came along and demanded it's release. Now it's out and it's over and done with. There is a LOT wrong with this country and let's face it, Obama hasn't delivered on half of his lame promises. ***

Stutters should not give speeches (unless they are cartoon characters) until they are able to overcome stuttering. Anything else would be self serving and unfair to the audience. See Porky Pig cartoons and The Kings Speech movie.
