Barbara Walters to Trump: ‘Donald, you’re making a fool of yourself … Stop it’
Barbara Walters had a message for Donald Trump on “The View” Thursday, a day after the real estate mogul made his widely-mocked offer to donate $5 million to charity if President Obama agreed to release his college and passport applications.
“You and I have known each other for many years,” Walters said in a message to Trump. “And you know that I am your friend, and I think you are a brilliant businessman, and you are great on television, and you have a fascinating personality. Donald, you’re making a fool of yourself. You’re not hurting Obama. You’re hurting Donald, and that hurts me because you’re a decent man. Stop it. Get off it, Donald.”
Trump was apparently watching, and fired off a series of Twitter messages to Walters in response.
“Barbara, unfortunately you’ve missed the entire point of my announcement,” Trump wrote. “You just don’t get it!”
