Exhibit D (for Damning): Trump hearts Obama
Just when you thought the war between Trump and McMahon had run its course, their clash of egos reignited two years after that fateful WrestleMania run-in. On a June 2009 episode of Monday Night Raw, it was announced that Trump was purchasing the program from McMahon. And in his pronouncement to the fans, at precisely 2:55 into the accompanying clip, Trump utters the unthinkable, urging his foe that, “It’s about time you give back. Like our president says, give back.” Shrug it off as a sarcastic dig at Barack Obama if you will, but don’t come crying to us when -- to put it in wrestling parlance -- Donald wins the primaries, turns “face,” and unveils his surprise tag-team partner/vice presidential candidate.
