Well, at least he’s not suing her. Taking time from his litigation against comedian Bill Maher (more birth certificate stuff), Donald Trump appeared on Howard Stern’s radio show (!) and had some choice words concerning Beyonce’s halftime performance at Super Bowl LXVII:

“When Beyonce was thrusting her hips forward in a very suggestive manner, if someone else would have done that it would have been a national scandal. I thought it was ridiculous … I thought it was not appropriate,” he said.

    Can’t believe I actually agree with something Donald Trump has to say!

    I turned it off part way through. The message it sends to young girls is simple: if money and fame are more important to you than dignity, dress like a slut, learn to sing, act like a tramp in front of millions of people, and the world can be yours!

      Wait so Madonna didn’t start this 30 years ago? What a trend setter Beyonce is!!!!

        LOL No one said Madonna was a GOOD example either!

      Now, if you’ll excuse me. I’m going to have my 12th shot of scotch. And then have sex with my 5th wife. Right after I take my copy of playboy in the bathroom. And then I’m going to take a few bites out a super-duper-deluxe burger, and throw the rest away. And then take a ride in my decked out hummer. To try and forget about this ugly display.

      Why do people assume and demand that if someone chooses a career in entertainment, (like a singer, dancer, actor, etc)… that now that person is responsible for the upbringing of your children? I’m sick of all this “role model” and “sending messages” crap…

      Howsabout YOU the parent be the “example”… YOU teach them right from wrong… and if your daughter ends up with a career that involves a pole (and isn’t a firefighter)… don’t blame Beyonce, or any other entertainer, blame yourself…

        A good idea, except for any of Trump’s kids…

    Beyonce is terrible.

    You can take the girl out of the ghetto. But you can’t take the ghetto out of the girl.

    Coming from the man with a dead squirrell on his head!!

    Wow…I’m so glad that Donald has an opinion about everyone. I find him to be an arrogant arsehole.
    1. Hit thumbs up if you find him annoying and repulsive…
    2. Hit thumbs down if you like D. Trump

      On this blog we don’t need bloggerettees telling us how to use the thumb vote. We can ALL handle it all by ourself. Beyonce sounds like a trailer trash cracker yahoo when she talks. good thing for her she can sing.At least she doesn’t do videos in a bath tub ………………………..yet.

      • cbking05 - Feb 14, 2013 at 5:52 PM

        Eat shat…And get off of Trumps nuts

        It’s cute how you deflect your obvious white trash upbringing onto Beyonce. Good luck with community college you failure.

        • badintent - Feb 15, 2013 at 7:19 PM

          So sorry to disappoint you but I grew up in a super rich Jewish town in New York. I went to a super expensive private college where the first year tution is more than the 4 years you attended Moo U. Never set foot on a CC.Only thing I know about white trash is the crackers that voted for King Cracker Clintonand his Arkansas yahoos
          Beyonce might wear Aretha Franklin’s hat on her fat ass, but when it comes to singing, Beyonce can’t carry Aretha’s jock. But go ahead, dream about snapping Beyonce’s panties, the line goes all the way to SW Compton..

            so with all that ”education” you still grew up to be a pretentious idiot? what a waste…

  5. jprcox - Feb 14, 2013 at 6:00 PM

    Trump said this while going on the Howard Stern Show??? I mean why not just give an interview to Penthouse to support them while talking about inappropriate. Its that kind of logic that makes me laugh at people like him.

    With these comments you people show you are truly ignorant. Beyonce hasn’t done anything that any dope fen, pill poppin, trailer trashed ass white star hasn’t done except she black. White stars say and do way move on tv daily than she does in a video, but that doesn’t offend you. Your tramp kid is giving XXX XXX in the locker room and broke, but this married millionaire bothers you BECAUSE YOU ARE BROKE AND HAVE NO TALENT! Get a life clowns.

    • jprcox - Feb 14, 2013 at 6:13 PM

      areal40, i dont think many people agree with Trump or the first couple people who have posted. Most people think what Beyonce did was fine – in fact, great. There will always be people who complain about anything. Trump is all show, his personal life is x-rated for sure.

    • dangle13x - Feb 14, 2013 at 6:17 PM

      Very eloquently stated areal40. It sounds like you have a true grasp on what it means to be white trash.

    • jimguida - Feb 14, 2013 at 7:12 PM

      >>Your tramp kid is giving xxx in the locker room…<<

      Well, at least she's off the streets!

  7. dangle13x - Feb 14, 2013 at 6:16 PM

    Won’t this clown just die already?

  8. sabatimus - Feb 14, 2013 at 6:16 PM

    Well, Trump WOULD know ridiculousness when he see it…

  9. manchestermiracle - Feb 16, 2013 at 5:16 PM

    Donald Trump, redefining “ironic” for over 50 years….

    I thought it was pretty hot. But if my 6 year old little girl was watching the half time show I may have changed the channel. Parents need to parent
