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.

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

nekom: 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.


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

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!

Another article mentions that Donald also got the names wrong - he forgot one of the two writers, and one person he mentioned doesn't even work for Deadspin anymore.

Huffington Post article

Another part of the Deadspin response

The Great EZE: maachubo: 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.


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.
