Comedians Roast Donald Trump

Donald-Trump-Roast_274If Donald Trump indeed decides to run for the presidency in 2012, he’ll hold a unique distinction. He’ll be likely the first White House hopeful to have endured a televised roast. Though he won’t be making an official announcement until June, that didn’t stop the comedians on hand at The Comedy Central Roast of Donald Trump (airing tonight at 10:30 pm EST) from talking to EW on the red carpet about his threatened possible bid. Roastmaster Seth MacFarlane fired the opening salvo with, “I don’t know if I could vote for a guy whose resting facial expression is ‘Who farted?’” About his possible chances in the Republican primaries, where Trump is already tacking rightward, a la Giuliani, Trump has already given himself an out. “I’ve always heard that it’s very, very hard for a very successful person to run for public office,” he said. “Especially because I’ve won a lot of battles, and I’ve beaten a lot of people, and those people don’t like me. That’s true of other very, very successful people. But what this country needs is a very successful person.”
