Normally I'd say it's bad form to insult someone who has just complemented you, and potentially generated a bit of news promoting your site.  But then I remember it's Trump, so yeah, I guess that was the fitting response to just about anything he ever says.

If Donald Trump compliments you, you can be sure that somehow things have gone deeply wrong and you need to reevaluate the direction your life is headed.

I had to tell a bosses boss and his lackey VP buddy essentially the same thing once, but it was "Yea??? And Fark you too!!! I was in my office with my boss and the rest of the department going over the day's work and a co-worker exclaimed "I can't believe you just said that!" But I was only under contract and I knew he was royally farking the place over! I left and went to work for our new Governor and this a$$hole ended up costing the company well over $1 mil in lawsuits before the Board finally dumped his ass!

My thoughts exactly. That is what goes through my mind anytime that blustering weasel utters anything publicly. Well done, Deadspin.

If you work for Gawker media, you probably know exactly know where your life is headed.

Why does Donald Trump think that we need to know his opinion about anything/everything? Such a douche.

Still waiting for that miniscule piece of shiat Bill Maher to cough up that $5 million for very good charities though.

More or less what I would've said to the guy.

Good work, Deadspin!

You've described everyone with a twitter account.

Technically, I think the correct Spyism is "thick-fingered vulgarian."

Why is this shiat funneled through Buzzfeed, anyway? Is that site also owned by Drew or something? Way too many links from that place which is a 3rd rate cracked.com.

It's still bad form. Whether he's an asshole or not. Not that I'm standing up for Trump here, he can do that on his own, but if you want to claim moral superiority from which to call him an asshole you have to start by not being an asshole yourself. That tweet may have been satisfying, but all it really does is show that Deadspin is staffed by juvenile pricks.

I don't see Deadspin claiming moral superiority. You don't have to be above an asshole to call someone an asshole. In Trump's case you just need two brain cells to rub together.

He didn't produce the long form, even more minuscule POS.

So accept the compliment politely and then call him an asshole later? I'm not sure how this works. I'd have to commit a litany of actions ranging from the questionable to the downright reprehensible in order to lose any existing claim of "moral superiority" over that man so my immediate response to an earnest compliment from Donald Trump would be to humbly request that he never speak again.

Possibly. And there are organizations (websites, radio stations, and such) where "juvenile prick" is their thing. I still say it's bad form to respond to a compliment with an insult, regardless of the deservedness of said insult.

Now, if they'd said "Thank you. And go fark yourself." that would be different.

So, what you're doing then?
