The latest target of Donald Trump’s anger is Jerry Seinfeld, who canceled an appearance for Trump’s son’s charity as a protest against Trump’s “birther” campaign, reports the New York Post’s Page Six.
Seinfeld canceled an appearance scheduled for September with the Eric Trump Foundation, a benefit for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, because Seinfeld disagrees with Donald Trump’s efforts questioning Barack Obama’s citizenship, according to the story. Seinfeld’s action drew an angry response from The Donald.
"I just learned you canceled a show for my son’s charity because of the fact that I am being very aggressive with respect to President Obama, who is doing an absolutely terrible job as our leader," Trump wrote in a letter to Seinfeld. Trump added that he wished he had canceled his appearance on Seinfeld’s NBC show, "The Marriage Ref," which Trump described as "absolutely terrible," the article adds.
"Despite its poor ratings, I didn’t cancel on you like you canceled on my son and St. Jude. I only wish I did," Trump wrote.
A representative for Seinfeld said the comedian has "grown increasingly uncomfortable" with Trump’s birther stance and is making contributions both to the Eric Trump Foundation and to St. Jude, the piece notes.
