Donald Trump Gets Roasted
Donald Trump doesn’t seem like the kind of guy who likes to be the brunt of a joke. In fact TMZ reported that when The Donald was initially approached to be the recipient of a Comedy Central Roast, he wasn’t interested. But when he found out the pay day for the event was $2 million, he changed his tune.
The real estate mogul turned reality TV megastar accepted the offer and reportedly plans to donate his entire paycheck to charity. Earning the cash wasn’t easy. On Wednesday night he took heat from some of comedy’s most brutal jokesters including Roast Master and Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane and regulars Jeffrey Ross, Gilbert Godfried and Lisa Lampanelli. Old friend Larry King stopped by to take a few jabs and Snoop Dogg was surprisingly present.
Mr. Trump most likely braced himself for lots of bad hair barbs but as he joked in a Comedy Central promo, “It will be refreshing to spend an evening with people who didn’t show up just to kiss by (BLEEP).”
The Comedy Central Roast of Donald Trump airs on Tuesday, March 15 at 10:30 p.m. EST/9:30 p.m. Central.
