Donald Trump blasts Beyonce's 'hip-thrusting' Super Bowl show 'inappropriate' a 'national scandal'
dailymail. ^ | 13 February 2013 | DAILY MAIL REPORTER

Posted on 02/14/2013 7:10:49 AM PST by dennisw

Media mogul Donald Trump slammed Beyonce's Super Bowl performance as 'ridiculous' and inappropriate. Appearing on the 'Howard Stern Show,' Trump said the singer was too 'suggestive' for a national audience. 'When Beyonce was thrusting her hips forward in a very suggestive manner, if someone else would have done that it would have been a national scandal,' Trump, 66, said. 'I thought it was ridiculous ... I thought it was not appropriate.'

Trump said he thought it was strange that no one else has criticized her for her scandalous dance moves.

'There's been no mention of it,' he said. 'So obviously, it must not have been so bad. She gets a pass.'

It seems to me that Donald is dangerously close to playing the race card. It also seems to me that Donald’s ego is so enormous that he can’t stand being out of the news for more than 30 days.

Shut. Up. Donald.

Only The Donald has the cojones to blast Beyonce’s stupid salacious show. All others are afraid of being called racist. In the age of Obama, Beyonce is what passes for high entertainment.

Why a brilliant job creating free market entrepreneur like Donald Trump would want to concern himself with a glorified over-hyped no talent pole dancer is beyond me.

I think the show thrust its way beyond “suggestive” to downright “assertive.”

It was a stupid strip tease. So Trump cannot say this because the trashy performer is black? A pretty bleached one at that? Welcome to the age of Obama group-think

“But ...uhhh ... I agree with him.”

So do I. But what purpose does it serve, beyond the obvious “look at me”, to make that comment?

Do you think the NFL will say: “Oh gee, we irritated Donald, we better mend our ways?”

Seriously, the problem isn’t that a celebrity didn’t speak up about Beyonce’s pole dance at halftime. The problem is, Americans eat it up and want more, regardless of the setting.

I’d happily watch a Beyonce pole dance, in a more appropriate time and place.

I strongly disagree.

Speak up Trump. Someone has to.

If a lot of people had it in their minds to speak up about such things, then Donald could quietly rise above the babble and be a rich guy. None the worse for wear.

But nobody is speaking up. Anywhere.

Leaving an opportunity, even a requirement, for someone brave enough, to do so.

Speak up Donald. Never, ever shut up.

I'll try to find the Eddie Murphy interview where he confesses he doesn't want HIS kids to see his older stuff.

I think that thought helped him to quit the business.

Her trashy dancing with a cast of thousands is OK for her concerts where people know what they are paying for. Fine, blow your cash on that. But for prime time TV seen all over the world? What are people in other nations supposed to think? That America is a trash superpower that exports this trash under the guise of entertainment?

Beyonce’s act was of course smutty.

However, ALL of American popular culture is vomit.

Turn that stuff off and it will feel like you took your head OUT of a garbage can!!

This country today loves this stuff.

We’re all jaded now and need little blue pills because so many women are so fat. (and men)

They should just run all those expensive commercials instead of a half time show.

Interestingly, you point out that you think I’m attacking the person, (which I freely admit I am), and saying he can’t have an opinion, (which I’m not), by attacking me, and saying I shouldn’t have an opinion.

Perhaps you should think before you post? Everyone is entitled to their opinion, even if they don’t consider that opinion before expressing it.

My brother travels ALL over the world in the aviation inspection industry and says just THAT.

Preople think we're more black than white because of sports and obama.

People think we're still the ugly American and we SHOULD be taken down

It IS what they see that forms their opinions.

And my opinion of you would get me banned, so I’ll simply call you a moron.

Did “The Donald” complain about Madonna? If you had more than two brain cells, you’d realize Trump is tied to the right, and making comments that can be construed as racist isn’t the way to win over the stupid American public. Of which, you seem to be a member in good standing.

I was listening to Bill Cunningham on Sunday night radio. He asked the question, “am I the only one who thought Beyonce’s act was inappropriate for Super Bowl halftime?” Trump is now the second public personality I’ve heard say this.

No saint he, admittedly, but Cunningham was very clear that he objected to the venue. It boiled down to the fact that he was at a FAMILY gathering for the SB. The FAMILY gathering included four children, both sexes, between the ages of 1 and 14 yrs old. I think he said 4,7,11 and 14...or something close to that.

Went on to describe the moms who were extremely bothered by their kids watching this, and in that group setting. Said more than one of them pulled their kids away from the set and left the room with them in tow.

wow! Kinda what I suspected. Blacks are only 11% of population and Hispanics have surpassed them, are now the most populous minority group, but due to our entertainment exports who can blame them for thinking blacks are 60%?

I'd settle for a small one to land on K Street...

She is horrid in the picture, I liked it when women were women, and not afraid of it, and while saucy they still were classy (see below) not some androgynous estrogen eater taking muscle head...

More and more each day, I think America peaked in 1962 and it has been downhill ever since...

NFL football is not a "family friendly" spectacle. To expect it to be one is like expecting a G-rated pole dancer.

Decent people need to avoid the NFL.

Who could blame them? If I were a foreigner who defined America solely by its perverted and putrid entertainment culture, and then al-qaeda came along and nuked the USA, I’d probably be cheering right alongside them.

American culture has been degenerating for decades, but it’s now pretty much down the level of an open sewer.
