Donald Trump appears to be positioning himself as the new Charlie Sheen, having been mired in controversy ever since President Obama called his bluff this week and released his birth certificate.
The billionaire’s latest move seems designed to keep him in the running for Sheen’s bad-boy title. The Los Angeles Times reported that Trump unleashed a scathing attack on the president and other national leaders Thursday night, along with spewing a string of F-bombs.
“Our leaders are stupid, they are stupid people,” Trump told a Las Vegas audience at an event hosted by a number of GOP women’s groups.
What about the F-bombs? Here’s a sample: “Concerning oil prices, the New York businessman complained that there isn’t anyone in power willing to say no to OPEC when they raise the price of gasoline,” the Times reported. "’We have nobody in Washington that sits back and said, you’re not going to raise that ****ing price,’ Trump said.”
The host of NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice”–a potential presidential candidate who almost no one seems to think will really run–has been accused of racism and targeted by an ad boycott in the past couple of days.
