This just in: Donald Trump says controversial thing. I know, it’s very hard to believe. But following Derek Jeter’s broken ankle on Sunday, Trump had this to say on Twitter about the Yankees star:

Derek Jeter had a great career until 3 days ago when he sold his apartment at Trump World Tower- I told him not to sell- karma?

Reaction was swift and, um, not kind. Example:

@realDonaldTrump don’t $%#@ with Derek Jeter. He’s won more that you’ve ever stole. now go back to fixing your combover.

You are horrible @RealDonaldTrump.

Trump then backtracks a bit:

Lots of response on Derek–but I told him his apartment was lucky! — We love Derek.

Then quickly changes the subject:

I don’t get @JerrySeinfeld’s stumbling, bumbling humor–no better than his failed Marriage Ref tv show

Donald still mad over this, apparently.

Then, this was seen on Trump’s Twitter page:


Hahahahaha. I’m sure he appreciates those last two.
