where are they now?

A Children’s Treasury of Donald Trump Hollering At Former Wonkette Writers

What happens to our former scribes when they leave the fairest pastures of Your Wonkette for the “real world”? Some of them go to Time, some start cults in the desert, some come back to Wonkette for additional “funnin’ on the Internet.” Everyone else just gets yelled at by Donald Trump after writing funny insults about him. It turns out that instead of closing Big Deals all day, Trump mostly just reads people making fun of him on the Internet and has his assistants “fire back” by drafting a letter, or a tweet. Most recently, Salon’s Alex Pareene, who edited Wonkette in the 1950s or so, joined the rest of the Internet in making fun of Trump’s secret plans for the Republican National Convention yesterday, earning himself the hilarious tweeted response you see up top. Who else has transgressed our nation’s greatest vulgar fathead businessman in such a way as to merit a petty response?

The wars between Vanity Fair‘s Juli Weiner, née “Wonkette Intern Juli,” and Trump have been the most bombastic over the past couple of years, with Trump taking his lingering 1980s grudge with former Spy editor and current Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter out on the comical Ms. Weiner. (Carter’s Spy, famously, used to call Trump a “short-fingered vulgarian.”) First was the “BAD WRITER!” incident of 2011:

A year later, and he was too scared to call her by name:

Trump also went full-printout on Boston Globe reporter and beloved former Wonketteer Garrett “Token Paultard” Quinn. We hadn’t known about this until about half an hour ago, when Quinn described the attack in an exclusive Wonkette gchat interview.

Garrett: So Trump printed out this blog post on his dealings in AC
Wrote in something like “THIS IS UNFAIR. SHE SHOULD HAVE SOLD HER HOUSE WHEN SHE HAD THE CHANCE. NO SHOT NOW! HA!” – DONALD TRUMP
Scanned it
And emailed it to me

me: haha. he sent one like that to juli weiner once. I’m doing a post on it.

Garrett: His letter to me wasn’t because of something I wrote on Wonkette but still, I was taken aback when I got it

me: yeah he is insane

Garrett: Let me find it. Hold on
It was the lamest thing too because it was a post on eminent domain abuse

Here is the note:

      Nah, first thing they'd do is kick out all the illegal immigrants. Then we're stuck with Trump in New Jersey.

  • AbandonHope_

    Lucky I did not buy it

    Yeah, good thing, Trump, you might have had to declare bankruptcy three or four more times.

    • bibliotequetress

      "Lucky," yes, because based on his history, "informed and intelligent decision making" is not how the Donald does business.

  • DrunkIrishman

    Donald Trump calling anyone a third rate anything is so hypocritical that I think it ripped open a hole in the spacetime continuum and the kicker? The hole itself still wouldn't be able to fit his fat head through it.

    Donald, listen .,. you pale, ginger, soulless fuck. You were such a blowhard that your campaign for the presidency crashed and burned before Michele Bachmann's and Rick Perry's. What the fuck does that say to you when those two inbred Republican morons have more viability in their party than you – you loony piece of bloated shit?

    Also, you look like you're wearing a rat king on your fat, ugly, freckled and pale white head.

    An insult from Trump is kind of like what you get walking up to a French castle in a Monty Python script.

  • elviouslyqueer

    Gotta say, the sheer amount of ego and puffery, especially in Donald's hit piece of darling Juli, is mighty impressive. Never mind that he's probably full of enough hot air to blow his toupee into orbit. Around Neptune.

    Doktor Zoom you better dust off your long form diploma.

  • Billmatic

    What's up with that signature by the way, are those even letters?

    • AbandonHope_

      He's vaguely aware that the hand moves up and down when you're signing something… unfortunately, that maxed out the small working functionality of his brain, and it forgot to compose actual letters. Or glyphs of any sort, for that matter.

      Somebody hit his reset button. I'm pretty sure it's under that access cover he calls his hair.

    Alex Pareene, histories greatest Roseanne.

  • JustPixelz

    Trump is mad because Pareene basically started his piece with Trump's obituary:

    Donald Trump, an oft-bankrupt make-believe mogul clown with a television show where he pretends to fire America’s saddest former celebrities, is one of the Republican Party’s most prominent national figures, because he is on TV and people have heard of him.

  • arihaya

    Wow. What a head case this Trump guy is. I can't help but think that if I owned the entire east coast, I would completely not give a kinky, internet-porn fuck about what every blogger and magazine thought about me, let alone make it my mission to refute every single one of them.

  • prommie

    Dumbest fucking lawyer I ever knew in all my life once asked me to help research this arcane little area of law involving eminent domain. Dumb fucking fuck kept insisting "I know there is this case out there that says Blah Blah Blah." I would research, and since the case was imaginary, of course I could never find it. But I would report back the results of my research, and because the results were not what dumbfuck dumbass McDumberson wanted to hear, she assumed I had misunderstood the issue and kept saying "no no no, you don't understahhhnd." Finally she had to go find an equally stupid lawyer willing to misread the law in a way that fit with her desire for what the law ought to be so she could win. Then she went to court and the judge handed her ass to her. Boy howdy I am skating close to the edge here. Lets just say, umm, well you see, umm, how about I put it this way, Vera Coking may have been a party to the suit. Its so long ago, my memory is so bad.

  • pdiddycornchips

    Twitter was invented so that egomaniacs can broadcast their self absorbed rants to a world wide audience. To Trump, it's the worlds second greatest invention, right behind gold plating.

      Donald scrawls his tweets in sharpie, and faxes them to an intern to type.

  • JackObin

    Little Donnie is an idiot and he has a cocker spaniel on his head.

  • T3rbo

    this may be ot, but this idiot proves that the Romney campaign is being run by those who make dubious choices. Why would you want to associate yourself with this idiot, anyway? He is like a cartoon character version of how poor people view rich people. I fully expect him to don a wrestling outfit for the Repub convention and carry around silver bags with dollar signs on them and say idiotic things to get boos from the hilbilly WWE-style crowd. Trump is a professional wrestler heel, not a good guy, and this is who you want to associate with, RNC? What's next, Romney and Trump are going to pound on Hulk Hogan, with a folding chair, at the RNC convention and expect everyone to cheer?

    • sullivanst

      Also, Sununu's no-no screaming at Soledad O'Brien for daring to highlight that some of the factual claims he was attempting to make were in fact the opposite of the truth, and today's T-Paw experience with the same interviewer resulting in him questioning her grasp of English when she refused to accept his attempt to imply that the ACA reduces Medicare benefits.

      Romney is a terrible person surrounding himself with terrible people, would be my takeaway.

And by the way, Trump, you are a moron, an idiot, a doofus, a dweeb, and unprofessional, offensive, stupid, backwards, ignorant, uneducated, inexperienced, out-of-it, out of the zeitgeist, and completely, totally, 100 percent inexperienced and uneducated in government and politics, current events, civics and community issues, and news.
