Former “Apprentice” Cyndi Lauper on Trump: “What kind of idiot are you?”
Donald Trump had better not ask Cyndi Lauper to appear on "All-Star Celebrity Apprentice."
Via Michael Musto at the Village Voice comes an interview in gay magazine Next with Cyndi Lauper, the 1980s pop star who's on Broadway with a new show, "Kinky Boots." The singer and former "Celebrity Apprentice" competitor has strong words for her former "employer," Donald Trump:
I felt that what he said about the gay community was disappointing because a lot of gay people work for him,” she admits. “It’s just sad. I thought he could have done better for his country than just go to the lowest common denominator and stir up the crap. It’s our country, it’s not wrestling. If you try and make our president fail, it doesn’t matter who he is, you make our country fail.
Lauper goes on to say that Trump is motivated to criticize President Obama (whose birth certificate he has publicly demanded) on the basis of race: "Our country is in trouble and he keeps wanting to make [Obama] fail. Let’s call a spade a spade. The guy’s a black man and that’s your issue? What kind of idiot are you? Come on."
