Donald Trump’s Only Rule During Comedy Central Roast: Don’t Say I’m Not That Rich
When Donald Trump agreed to be roasted by Comedy Central in 2011, he told hosts they could joke about anything they wanted… but they couldn’t say he had less money than he claims to have.
Comedy Central Roasts writer and performer Anthony Jeselnik revealed the stipulation during a chat with Joan Rivers in 2013. “I remember everyone had rules,” he said. “I remember your rule was don’t make fun of Melissa, don’t make fun of my kids. David Hasselhoff said don’t make fun of my daughters.”
“Donald Trump’s rule was, don’t say I have less money than I say I do,” he continued as the production crew laughed in the background. “Make fun of my kids, do whatever you want, just don’t say I don’t have that much money.”

To put this in perspective, the jokes that Trump didn’t have a problem with include this one from Gilbert Gottfried: “Donald Trump has done so much damage to the New York Skyline, that instead of calling him the Donald, they should call him the 20th hijacker.”
And this gem, from Snoop Dogg: “Now he’s talking about running for President. Why not? It wouldn’t be the first time he kicked a black family out of their house.”
