The Donald Is Trippin’ Again: According To Trump Beyoncé’s ‘Suggestive’ Halftime Performance Was Scandalous

It’s not surprising at all that big-mouthed billionaire, Donald Trump expressed his opinion on Beyoncé Knowles-Carter’s highly anticipated Super Bowl halftime show performance, as he seems to have no qualms with voicing his unsolicited opinions about any and everything. What was a bit surprising however, was how he felt about the performance. In a February 6th interview with Howard Stern, he expressed that he believed Bey’s performance to be inappropriate, but not before stating how much he likes her husband, Jay-Z.

“I like Jay-Z a lot, but I will tell you this, at the Super Bowl when Beyonce was thrusting her hips forward in a very suggestive manner, if someone else would have done that it would have been a national scandal. I thought it was ridiculous … I thought it was not appropriate.”

He went on to state that he felt as though he was one of few that took notice of her distasteful performance and how he couldn’t understand it because people have been ripped to shreds for less.

“I’ve seen things for far less that people have made a big deal out of, but I haven’t even heard anybody mention it. I think I may be mentioning it now to you for the first time… The way the ‘so and so’ was thrust forward continuously, I was saying “Give me a break”.  There’s been no mention of [her scandalous behavior]. So obviously, it must not have been so bad. She gets a pass.”

Umm, thanks for your two cents Trump.

What do you think of his reaction to Bey’s halftime performance? Did you find it to be inappropriate at all?

    When will this moron find a seat in a corner and sit down somewhere?

  • Sunny

    Your Little Lord Fauntleroy toupee isn’t appropriate either nor is dumping your wife of 20 years for a younger woman, but whatever you say, Donnie.

  • Tamz

    I place no value in what this man says. I’m not a Beyonce fan but who gives a damn what he thinks?

  • Babydoll 70

    I’m not a big fan of Beyoncé but Trump needs to be quiet. He was saying that when he was cheating on Ivana with Marla Maples and Marla had an exercise video out where she was bopping around with no bra on, he seemed to like gyrations then.

  • Guest

    Why does anyone give this attention-seeking-oompa-loompah any attention? Wasn’t he just in the news last week suing Bill Maher? When everyone starts ignoring his tantrums, I swear we’d all be better for it.

    Much as i’m not a Beyoncé fan and yes, the thrusting could have been toned down, I have to look the other way just because its coming from him. I bet $20 he’d be in the news again next week .

  • Donna

    This man just can’t stand to see black people in the spotlight.. I mean, let’s call a spade, a spade. Smh. First his ridiculous antics with Obama, now Beyonce.. Either change the channel or have a seat and keep watching (which we all KNOW he did).. BYE Trump….

  • Keisha Samoht

    Will someone put a gag on him? D*mn, he is clearly bored. now that he can no longer beat that horse about Obama not being an American Citizen, he decides to pick at Beyonce… I think he mad that her cause hair blew from the fans and he cant do that no more

  • Just saying!!

    I don’t like Trump but I’ve said the same thing before. She gets away with A LOT. She does a lot of booty popping and hip shaking but still is somehow considered “classy” I never did get that. I just thought she was a classier version of a stripper (don’t remember the name of those dancers). I’m sorry but he’s kind of right about that. The difference is because it’s Beyonce, that behavior has become normalized and acceptable. But if I saw my daughter on stage dancing like that I would whoop her tail–30 or not. But that’s just me. I grew up on old school music where you didn’t have to do that to sell a record so idk

    • Sunny

      What does she get away with? People go in on her all the time.

  • Ladydi82

    Donald needs to get a slap in the back of his head.

  • clove8canela

    Oh please. He’s still mad Obama won. If he was so offended, why didn’t he just turn it off? :-/

  • Natasha T

    Excuse me, but why do we care what Donald thinks?! He’s saying all these things because he wants ATTENTION! He’s just an old childish white man with nothing better to do with his time.

  • Sagittarius81

    His combover and his theories of the POTUS is more scandalous than Bey’s performance. Please Don, shut up and have every seat at the Staples center.

  • Say What?

    Doesn’t this mofo sponsor the Mr. America/Universe Pageant that has women walking around in bikinis and then marries the winner or something?

    • Deej


  • Meyaka

    I though it was quite vulgar myself all the hips gyrating and butt shaking and hair throwing… I’m still appalled that her behavior while she performs is condemned and accepted.

    • laila9900

      its because shes beyonce. No matter what she does, good or bad, people will love it.

      • Just saying!!

        That is a sad FACT!!

        • Meyaka

          Very sad.

  • Kenedy

    Well……lets just say her dance moves aren’t suitable for all audiences

  • Candacey Doris

    I think he found it especially suggestive because he was having some wishful thinking.

  • Real talk, and I am a bit of a Bey fan, I thought that for a televised program that families watch together she could have toned down some of the legs wide open “thrusting” movements. But I am 42 and thinking of the fact that small kids are watching not like her concerts or performances on award shows that mostly air after 9 pm. Still a great show but I can understand where he is coming from…doesn’t make him any less of a turd though.

  • He has a real problem with black people. Let’s stop dancing around the truth here. Where was his condemnation of Madonna’s half-time show last year? She thrust her c*och no less than Beyonce. Where was his ‘outrage’ then?

  • On_Point

    I agree, she was poppin her poocy like she was a wh0re. Beyawnce you are wife and a mother(0_o), you ought to act like one.

    • Teati

      Sooo should we now cross entrrtainer off her resume? Im confused as to why her new roles eliminates her career.

  • Gem0124

    That combover is scandalous. Donald, do us all a favor and join Lebron’s hair club.

  • lisa

    she looks like a drag queen….it’s time for her to give up on those butt pads she wears

    • BrwnSugarQueen

      Im glad someone finally said something about her butt pads. Ppl always saying she got a big butt and she doesnt have it at all. There is a difference between having a fat butt and having a wide butt and she has a wide butt

      • Just saying!!

        Exactly!! She just has wide hips that make her butt wide but if she had a big butt it would be more round.

        • Trollolol

          I’m willing to bet the posters above me are the ever salty members of #TeamPancakeBooty. Who wants in?

    • Trollolol

      for some reason, I doubt you look better. For another odd reason, I doubt you’re willing to disprove that.

      • Just saying!

        I don’t understand why YOU’RE offended. Does Beyonce pay you or something? I mean sheesh.

        • Trollolol

          *hides check* of course not.

  • Taj

    I am not a fan of Beyonce. However, given the scandal involving some of the winners of Miss USA in recent years in which he has sponsored, this man has no room to talk.

    • AJ389


    • Babydoll 70

      Oh, he got rid of them too as if he’s lived a perfect life.

  • AJ389

    You mean more inappropriate than your jacked up comb over ? Come on trump cut off and cut it out.

  • York

    I think he’s just mad cuz he can’t hit that O_o

  • realadulttalk

    I think Trump might suffer from dementia…

    • Babydoll 70

      Uh no. I don’t care for Donald but please don’t use dementia as a form of a joke. Some folk actually have relatives that are suffering from this horrible illness.
