Why Would Donald Trump Pick on Gail Collins?

The New York Times columnist is such a nice lady. But when she eviscerated his cynical, ignorant birtherism in a recent column, the bully billionaire could not contain his bile in a letter to the Times. Collins remembers a past run-in with Trump:
"During one down period, I referred to him in print as a "financially embattled thousandaire" and he sent me a copy of the column with my picture circled and "The Face of a Dog!" written over it."
How classy. Curious too, considering that ugly fishface with the repulsive “do” should make disparaging references about anyone else’s appearance. On the other hand, those pucker fish lips are perfectly suited for his bilious delivery. (What does it say about this country that this jerk has a top-rated schadenfreude show on NBC in which he takes pleasure in firing people?)

Trump suffers from Charlie Sheen’s self-delusional cult of celebrity. He’s received nothing but fawning press coverage for his entire career. Hence, he doesn’t know how to react to the marginally more skeptical political coverage. No one’s ever told him to his face what a freakish asshole he actually is, in appearance and mentality. Perhaps privately, to which he undoubtedly replied with a variation of Sheen’s “WINNING!”

I read a GREAT takedown of Charlie Sheen in a friend’s blog:
"Someone please explain to him that “warlock” doesn’t mean “a magician of great supernatural powers”, or anything else grandiose that Charlie Fucking Sheen may think it means. It comes from the Anglo-Saxon words waer, meaning truth, and leogan, to lie. In other words, someone who belies the truth. It fits him, all right; he’s a liar and an oathbreaker (how many marriage vows has he violated now? Anyone keeping track?) Anyhow: How very fitting that he got booed off the stage in Detroit. I think we can soon officially close the book on this misogynous showbiz trainwreck. When someone compares Milli Vanilli favorably to you, you know you suck."
Charlie Sheen and Donald Trump — WARLOCKS. Hmm …

If Donald Trump thinks his fake presidential run is a “winning” cover to publicize his crappy TV show, on the theory that any publicity is good publicity, he doesn’t know much about the world of politics. He actually seems to believe his fortune can insulate him from negative media scrutiny and that every political talk show is like Entertainment Tonight.

Even worse for this ugly fish (Sparky’s much better looking), he’s got thin scales. That’s a deadly FAIL for a wannabe politician, especially when his wounds are self-inflicted. Comparing himself to George Washington, then bashing Collins with “her storytelling ability and word usage (coming from me, who has written many bestsellers), is not at a very high level. More importantly, her facts are wrong!”… only invites further humiliation from her: “Although Trump and I have had our differences in the past, I never felt it was personal. In fact, until now, I have refrained from noting that I once got an aggrieved message from him in which he misspelled the word 'too.'” One of those bestsellers — The Art of The Deal — comes highly recommended by John Boehner and the Tea Party Caucus.

For Collins, it’s like shooting fish in a barrel (with fish food pellets).
