Donald Trump's tweet to CNN is something that has to be seen to be believed.

In short Trump touts his ability to drive up ratings, and "suggests" that CNN donate all of the money they earn from advertising during their upcoming GOP debate to a veteran's charity.

So now he pushes Jeff Zucker, President of CNN, into a corner where he is either a cold blooded bastard not willing to help the veterans, or a lightweight who is easily bullied by the likes of Donald Trump.

And who really thinks this is about the veterans, and NOT about Trump's frustration that he cannot financially benefit from the uptick in the ratings?

    This is absolutely outrageous! Donald Trump reminds me of an orthopaedic surgeon in the Houston area whose license to practice medicine in Texas was stripped in 2006. Dr. Merrimon W. Baker appealed the action and ultimately lost. He had twice amputated the wrong leg on a patient, had dozens of medical malpractice lawsuits and judgments against him and was well known for a serious hydrocodone addition. He's been divorced four times, all before he turned forty years old. In 2013, Baker was found guilty of practicing medicine without a license under the alias Dr. Walter Spike.

    My point is that Donald Trump has a lot of the same characteristics. He feels entitled to the position of POTUS, much as Merrimon Baker feels entitled to practice medicine, regardless of who he maims or even kills. This kind of narcissistic tyranny cannot be allowed to continue.

    1. Tyrannical is the adjective that suits the GOP's Frankentrump monster. A film biography about him that was never allowed on TV due to his threats & law suits to quash it... is dunning. The never seen documentary is now being streamed online by the biographer.

    Oh that funny nic Wallace on MSNBC am today. She says "republican's are united" and says about our sarah.... "I think she was trying to say" ....Oh poor nicky. stuck in the republican rut of nuts.

      Yeah, and how about our beloved Rachel carrying water for the GOP last night by interviewing Nicole Wallace during her own show - for no real reason.

      Why are Republicans so scared to come right and say that Sarah Palin is a moron?

      "Our beloved Rachel" is just like all the rest of the media sycophants. It's all about her. Never understood people putting her on a pedestal. When she didn't defend Martin Bashir, that sealed my opinion of her.

    If anyone believes this is actually about veterans and not about his ego--I've got a bridge for sale in Brooklyn.

    I'd say "Sure I will. As soon as Fox does the same thing with the money they made off Trumps first debate"

  5. Considering that this dummkopf recently claimed to have better training than people who have been in the actual military, I'd say he's pandering like crazy.

      The pandering is so obvious, I can't believe anyone would fall for it.

    Actually,it's all about making someone else do something to distract from how Trump has demeaned veterans. he get's someone to use their money to pay for his miss steps.

    politicians shouldn't tamper with the media....CNN dont play trumps(no cap T for a reason) game...

    I think it is about Trump's need to control. He is showing that all he has to do is point his finger in any direction and he, The Donald, can make anything happen. He wants you to know that he is the puppet master pulling the strings.

    All zucker has to tweet back is he has stockholders to answer to, and then check on how much trump was giving to veterans before he was running for president. I doubt trump was giving very much back then and then offer to interview trump on why all of the sudden he cares about veterans.

    We kidded about it before, even though they are worlds apart in class and academic 'achievement,' Donald and Sarah Palin really are two birds of a feather. She's still waiting for a cut of Tina Fey's income.

    Serves them (and the rest of our so called media) right. Sleep with vermin, wake up with fleas.

    Jeff Zucker should tell Trump that CNN does not negotiate with terrorists.

    I've spent a lot of time around people who have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, because it runs in my family and my spouse's family and I've had to deal with the fallout. So I know way more about this disorder than I wish I did, and I'm beginning to wonder if Trump suffers from this. His arrogant grandiosity is certainly a symptom of a manic phase. "Normal" people just don't behave like Trump, ie without any regard for what is appropriate. If he's not bipolar, I'll go with narcissistic personality. There's something just not right with this man and it goes beyond the average arrogance of the wealthy and powerful.

    I hope CNN tells Trump to go pound sand. Why doesn't the U.S. government take care of the veterans who answered its recruitment call? Why should it be up to CNN when vets "fought" for all of us as government employees? It infuriates me to see heartrending ads for ripoff charities like Wounded Warriors, when the government should be taking care of vets who incurred lifelong disabilities while in service! Meaning tax money should support these poor folks who signed up to be cannon fodder at government's behest and on the government's dime. It's reprehensible that the government doesn't provide whatever care they need afterward. Why isn't Trump calling out HIS party for treating vets like dirt under their feet?

      Good question!

      5:38--I agree totally with you about veterans. I am the one shouting at the TV every time one of those "support our wounded veterans" ads come on: "Why don't we just fix the VA?"

    DIdn't Trump threaten to not participate in the CNN debate if Zucker didn't do this? So there's that as well.

    “Here’s my question: So if I go to CNN and I say, Look, you’re going to have a massive audience, and if I say to them, I want $10 million for charity, nothing for myself, what happens? I’m not showing up, right?” he says. It’s a rhetorical question, the wheels of entrepreneurship are turning, the joy of being Trump dancing on his face. “I’m not showing up unless you give $10 million to cancer, to this, to that. You pick 10 great charities, $1 million per.” He’s not sure just how far the rules of democracy can bend, how big his ambitions can grow. “If I’m in it, they’ll get this crazy audience, and they’re going to make a fortune since they’re selling commercials every time we take a break. Would you ever say to them, would you ever say, I want $10 million for AIDS research, for cancer, for this type or not, or is it too cute?”

    If idiots like Trump and $arah actually gave a damn about our troops they would support Obama's efforts to use international pressure and diplomacy with Iran instead of steaming right in and waging yet another Middle East war

    These chicken hawks have learned nothing from the fact that Iraq cost us trillions of dollars and more importantly the lives of thousands of troops along with countless others wounded or committing suicide as a result of PTSD

    It's like Trump's "secret plan" to destroy ISIS. The one he will only share if he's elected president...but if he's not elected he will keep his brilliant plan to himself and let innocent people suffer and die at the hands of ISIS.

    Donald & $arah, you belong the swamp along with the rest of the pond scum

    I shudder to imagine that had McCain won the election in 2008 and again in '12, Sarah would be running for the GOP ticket. Imagine then that she brought Trump on as her running mate, with his blowhard and insulting ways. This country really dodged a bullet in the 2008 election. To consider the alternative is truly scary stuff.

    Trump's ego knows no bounds. He is also admitting he is a carnival barker, as President Obama called him in 2012.

    Does he really think his CNN debate is the FIRST debate that has drawn ratings and profits for a network? As the elections draw closer, lots of people tune in to debates. This one is no different.

    Also, what's next? The next network who hosts the next debate also has to give their profits away? This is not going to sit well with the CEO's. As Sarah would say, Hoohah Trump!

    I am beginning to think The Donald has a mental illness. The world revolves around him, it's all about him.

    CNN is hosting, he is getting free air time, if he doesn't like it, one of the excluded clowns will show up.

    I wasn't able to read the letter, but this sounds like blackmail, give to the veterans or look unpatriotic. What happens the next time? CNN should tell him we don't negotiate with terrorists.

    What is is Trump's agenda in this, is anyone's guess.

    Zucker needs to politely respond and tell Trump that they will donate money to veterans WHEN they see fit, and show Trump some of the charities that they do donate to. He can tell Trump to shove his fake altruistic self and put his money where his mouth is.

    Trump is getting under everyone's skin - does he really like being like this?

    1. Anonymous2:09 PM

      Like it? He loves it. He gets off on it. The worst thing about this egomaniac's behavior is that the media responds to it like a whipped dog obediently licking its evil master's hand.

    Why doesn't Trump take the money he owes the US for 4 bankruptcies and donate that??!!

  22. Anonymous4:04 PM

    Donald has a very fragile ego He feels the need to throw the first punch. He wanted to be treated fairly the first debate, and a woman asked him gotcha questions. Whine stomp your feet and get your way. Doing this shows what a chickenshit he truly is.
    I hope Zucker tells him off. Don't want to debate? Stay home. It's a free country, your party made the rules, take it up wit them.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
