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.
But ...uhhh ... I agree with him.
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
All one has to do is envision THEIR daughter up there ....
Ain'cha' proud o'me, daddy ?
I thought it was beyond stupid and quite watching after a few minutes. Utter garbage from a music standpoint.
“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 think that thought helped him to quit the business.
This coming from a guy who thought it a good idea to hire Perez Hilton as a judge for the Miss America pageant.
“...media mogul...” ?
I see that every time I look in the mirror .. (right after exclaiming; "DAD !!" )
“My Daughter The Whore” would now be an acceptable network sitcom...ain’t liberalism just the cat’s pajamas?
“Speak up Donald. Never, ever shut up.”
You raise a valid point. There is just too much PT Barnum in Trump for my taste.
I didn’t watch. I was at church. I’ve heard a lot if praise for her though. First time I’ve any criticism. Thanks Donald.
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?
