At times, no love from The Donald!
Via the Daily News –
Don’t look for Alex Rodriguez to be cast on any future seasons of “Celebrity Apprentice.”
Donald Trump in a tweet last fall took a shot at A-Rod after he made the final out in last year’s ALDS loss to the Tigers, calling him “a less than average baseball player now that he is unable to use drugs.”
The Donald was back at it during Sunday’s episode of the NBC reality show, taking another shot at A-Rod while praising ’80s pop star Debbie Gibson for saying she didn’t care who received the credit as long as her team wins.
“That’s all about winning; that’s a Derek Jeter-type statement,” Trump said. “We love Derek. That’s not an A-Rod statement; it’s a Derek statement.”
Asked Monday about Trump’s latest swipe at him, A-Rod smiled and chose not to respond, sticking to his new mantra.
“Just baseball,” Rodriguez said with a smile.
Of course, Jeter lives in Trumps house…even though he wants to sell his penthouse at Trump Tower for $20 million.
Here, on one hand, you have Trump, using A-Rod and the fact that it’s almost baseball season to drum up some press for him and his show. And, on the other hand, you have A-Rod, who has put himself in this position to have people take pot shots at him – because of his past antics.
Something tells me this is not the last time that Trump will play this game. And, it’s probably not the last time that someone will say something about A-Rod too.
This one, now, is just the flavor of the day.
