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.

I AGREE. B B B B BUT OBAMA LOVERS WON'T S S S S SEE THE POINT.

AJLind about an hour ago *** 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. ***

I stutter from time to time and it doesn't bother me what he said. I am only bothered by him always having to feel the need to defend himself to whomever is criticizing him by saying even harsher stuff.

what is really the difference between someone that stutters and someone that fills their speech with like, huh, uh, you know, and even assorted profanity incessantly? yet there is no specific derogatory term for the latter that i can think of and i find that funny because both states involve an individual with a poor command of the language

If Trump doesn't want to be made the butt of jokes then he needs to learn to shut the hell up! He certainly doesn't mind dishing it out, but it huwts his wittle feelings if anyone dishes back.
