And the saga continues. Here is a (love?) letter from
Donald Trump to
Rosie O'Donnell, obtained by
Extra and regarding the
latest salvo in the pair's war of words. (I know I've been backpocketing this brouhaha, but this is actual, tangible correspondence. Don't let my re-typing of it be for naught.)
I hope you had a wonderful vacation with your wife - you needed the rest.
An article in today's New York Post indicates that you blew up at Barbara Walters for being a "liar." Actually, I don't blame you, but in fact she lied to both of us! After your maniacal and foolish rant against me two weeks ago, Barbara called me from her vacation in order to apologize for your behavior. She had heard that I was going to retaliate against you and tried to talk me out of it. She very much wanted me to go on the show as soon as she got back so she could "patch things up" (I said no). To be exact, she said that "working with her is like living in hell" and, more pointedly, "Donald, never get into the mud with pigs" and, "don't worry, she wont be here for long." Barbara knows exactly what she told me over the phone and she has to live with it. Perhaps that's why her initial statement was so mild!
In another incident, when I saw her eating at Le Cirque about two months ago and asked how "Rosie was doing," she sarcastically rolled her eyes and said, "Donald, do you have to ruin my meal[?]"
In any event, you have good reason to be angry. Please give my warmest regards to Kelly!
Donald J. Trump
PS. I was surprised that you let your spat with Barbara get into the newspapers, but, as I have always said and as you proved with Rosie, the magazine, you are very self-destructive. You must work on this for your own good!"
