Donald Trump Faked Phone Call to Brag About Book Sales

“Pete Davidson, the SNL comedian with the compelling theory that Donald Trump doesn`t know how to read, has shared another wonderful anecdote about Trump`s unfortunate hosting gig in 2015. In an interview with Open Late`s Peter Rosenberg, Davidson said that Trump, for no apparent reason, `faked a phone call` during a table read. Answering his imaginary phone call, Trump said without any pause, `Fantastic, okay great.`

`Then he hung up,` Davidson continued, and he goes, `Hey everybody, my book just went No. 1.` What a charmer.”

Long before he became president Donald Trump surrounded himself with celebrities from the worlds of sports and entertainment.

Trump treats politicians, businessmen and common people with contempt, but he`s always tried to ingratiate himself with celebs. Let`s not forget that trying to impress D-List celeb Billy Bush almost derailed his presidential campaign.

I`m not surprised that during Trump`s presidential campaign he tried to impress the cast of SNL by pretending he received a phone call informing him that his book just reached the top of the bestseller list.

Trump didn`t care that his ruse was so transparent (to this day he doesn`t care that his lies are so blatantly false), he just couldn`t miss an opportunity to brag to his fellow celebs.

The SNL cast was unimpressed with the narcissistic blowhard, it`s a shame that enough Americans were impressed with the despicable con artist to elect him to the White House.

SNL’s Michael Che Calls Donald Trump a ‘Bitch’ and a ‘Cheap Cracker’

“Michael Che wasn`t afraid to start off season 43 of Saturday Night Live with a big political statement.

During Weekend Update, Che, 34, slammed Donald Trump for the perceived slow federal response and alleged mishandling hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico, calling the president `bitch` and a `cheap cracker.`

After reading Trump`s tweet accusing Puerto Rico mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz of being “nasty” to him because Democrats told her to, Che said “Oh really, Donald? You bitch. Was she nasty to you? How nasty? Are you shaking?”

`This isn`t that complicated, man. It`s is hurricane relief. These people need help. You just did this for white people twice,` Che said, referencing Trump`s relief efforts for Florida and Houston residents. `Do the same thing. Go tell Melania to put on her flood heels, get some bottled water, some food, pack up some extra Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl t-shirts and write them a check with our money, you cheap cracker.`

Don`t expect me to get onboard the bandwagon criticizing Che for calling Donald Trump a “bitch” and a “cheap cracker.”

As a lover of the Constitution, a writer and a comedy fan, I place a high premium on the First Amendment.

Comedy should be a bastion of free speech, political-correctness and sensitivity should be anathema to every comic worth his salt. A comic shouldn`t just push the envelope, he should booby-trap the envelope and blow up the house with his outrageous commentary.

I am not going to wet my drawers in faux outrage when a black funnyman calls a white person a “cheap cracker,” or when a white comedian calls a black person a “nigger.” Nigga please, ain`t no rules in comedy.

Free speech advocates and anti-free speech fascists would agree that Donald Trump is a “bitch” and a “cheap cracker,” and truth be told I haven`t heard too many folks complain about Che`s spot-on description of Trump.

But whenever a comic uses words such as “bitch” or “nigger” we shouldn`t get our panties in a bunch.
