President Trump once sent a very nasty letter to comedian Jerry Seinfeld after he canceled an appearance at his son Eric Trump’s Foundation, which would have benefited St. Judes Children’s Research Hospital.
While the show would have helped children with cancer (a noble cause), Seinfeld grew “increasingly uncomfortable” with Trump’s public accusations against President Obama at the time, especially since it questioned his citizenship. Because of this, Seinfeld, according to his manager, “respectfully withdrew from the event.”
That’s when Trump sent Seinfeld a letter that you’re just going to have to read to believe. It was really that bad.
Here’s the letter:
After Seinfeld initially read the letter, he handled it like a boss. He told ExtraTV that “Trump was God’s gift to comedy.”
Seinfeld said, “Let me say this about Donald Trump. I love Donald Trump, all comedians love Donald Trump. If God gave comedians the power to invent people, the first person we would invent is Donald Trump… God’s gift to comedy.”
Now, before you go sympathizing with Trump about the “children with cancer” losing out, the one thing he left out was the fact that Seinfeld made a donation to the organization even though he didn’t attend. So, the kids still benefited. Later Seinfeld said: “I have no problem with him. I just can’t be with him.”
