Donald Trump bashes Sacha Baron Cohen, Ryan Seacrest’s security
Influential business magnate Donald Trump does not seem too pleased with the act that English comedian Sacha Baron Cohen pulled at the Oscars when he dressed in character as “The Dictator.” Trump, best known for the reality show “The Apprentice” bashed Cohen and called him a ‘third-rate character.’
Donald Trump took to Twitter to express his disapproval with Baron Cohen’s red carpet practical joke at the Oscars, where the comedian threw fake ashes on red carpet commentator Ryan Seacrest while dressed as his new character, General Aladeen, to promote his upcoming film “The Dictator.” Trump said:
@SachaBaronCohen is a moron who should have been pummeled by the weak and pathetic security person who stood watching as he poured ashes over @RyanSeacrest, a wonderful guy, at the Academy Award’s red carpet. The security person totally froze–he should be fired.
But the business magnate’s outrage clearly did not end there, as Donald Trump also released a Youtube video where he said, “This third-rate character named Sacha Baron Cohen thought he was being cute and funny when he threw ashes at Ryan Seacrest,” Trump ranted in his latest “From the Desk of Donald Trump” video. “Now I know Ryan Seacrest — he’s a great guy — and you could see he was visibly upset. It was disgraceful.”
The security guards did not escape the scrutinizing eyes of Trump.
“And the security guard that was standing to the right, he ought to be fired immediately! He had nothing, that guy was not capable. He allowed this guy to get away with so much. Believe me, if that ever happened to somebody with real security, Sacha Baron Cohen would not be in great shape right now, he’d be in a hospital. He would’ve been punched in the face so many times, he wouldn’t have known what happened to him,” Donald Trump went on.
“I only wish that Ryan took a swing at him, I only wish that the security guard that allowed it all to happen, number one, gets fired and number two: Go to school, learn about being security. You don’t know, man,” said the “Apprentice” celebrity towards Sacha Baron Cohen.
