"I've always said Rosie is very self-destructive," Trump said Thursday in Chicago. "... As far as Elisabeth Hasselbeck, I've always said she's probably the dumbest person on television, but when she called me ... obnoxious, she was probably right."
Trump, who started trading barbs with O'Donnell about six months ago, said he doesn't watch the ABC daytime talk show — then got in another O'Donnell dig.
"Rosie wears thin. Rosie will go on to another show, and like her first show, it'll fail," he said.
Trump was in Chicago to drum up sales for his towering condo-hotel project, under construction along the Chicago River.
His reality show, "The Apprentice," was left off NBC's 2007-2008 prime-time schedule.
Dumb question: why would anyone pay any of those people to do anything, or waste time watching any of them? Do their publicists just fax these verbal farts in to credulous journamalists for transcription or what? It's a very strange system, this "news" universe we observe.
