Donald Trump came to Winter TV Press Tour 2007 to talk about his NBC reality series, "The Apprentice." But, naturally, TV critics wanted to hear the latest on his feud with "The View" co-host Rosie O'Donnell. You know, the dustup in which O'Donnell questioned his fitness to give Miss USA a second chance after word of a drinking problem got out, and pageant owner Trump fired back that O'Donnell was a loser and he was going to send someone to steal away Rosie's partner, etc.)
"Number one, I have no regrets. I think I exposed her for what she is and she's terrible. She's just a terrible human being and I understand that because, you see, I knew Rosie long before this. She's a terrible, disgusting human being. Not very smart and she's got a lot of problems, to put it mildly."
Warming up to his subject, Trump called Rosie "a bully," adding, "The one thing I have learned, I learned it in high school. I learned it before high school. When you're attacked by a bully, you hit the bully hard right between the eyes. Hard and fast. And that's what I did."
Trump's only regret about the kerfuffle is that, he says, "The View's" ratings have gone up as a result.
"I feel badly for me.... I feel terrible about it."
