Trump in 2007: ‘So natural’ to call Rosie O’Donnell ‘he’
That was only one of the vile things he said.
Trump was speaking at a Learning Annex event in Toronto in early 2007 when he made the comments.
Listing off people O’Donnell had publicly attacked, Trump said, “Then he attacked Kelly Ripa. And he attacked, she attacked — I guess I could say ‘he.’ It’s so natural. No, it’s so natural.”
In the same speech, Trump also said it was “politically correct bullshit” that people would not call O’Donnell fat.
“This slob, now I’m not allowed to use the word fat,” Trump said. “They say, ‘he used the fat word.’ I know much worse words. It’s funny, I called her a degenerate, I called her the worst things, nobody cared.”
He added later, “So I hit her hard, right between those ugly ffff– eyes,” he added. “But I go on the Today Show and Meredith Vieira, ‘Donald is true?’ – this is like two weeks ago I was supposed to talking about The Apprentice. She said, ‘is it true that you called Rosie crude.’ I said, ‘no, I called her a degenerate. I didn’t call her crude, it’s not strong enough.’ She goes, ‘but did you call her fat?’ I said, ‘let me ask you a question Meredith. Is she fat?’ ‘I’d rather not comment.’ Can you believe this bullshit. This is politically correct bullshit, OK? So I had fun.”
