Donald Trump Belittles Reporter Who Asked About His Use Of Profanities

"It's stuff like that that people in this country are tired of."

A conservative political action committee has taken out an ad highlighting Donald Trump's regular use of vulgar language -- but when asked about it, the GOP presidential frontrunner offered no apologies.

Instead, he attacked the reporter who posed the question.

"Is that presidential?" Peter Alexander of NBC News asked, referring to various four-letter words used by Trump. "Are you embarrassed by it?"

"I was a little concerned with that ad until I saw it," Trump said. "I think it’s better than any ad I’ve ever taken from myself. I do."

"A lot of parents are trying to figure out how to explain some of the language they're hearing on the campaign trail," Alexander said. 

Trump replied: 

"Oh, you’re so politically correct, you’re so beautiful. Oh, look at you. Awwww. Awwww. He’s so... Oh, I know, you’ve never heard a little bad, a little off language. I know, you’re so perfect. Aren’t you perfect? Aren’t you just a perfect young man? Give me a break.”

"I'm hardly perfect, but I'm just asking the question," Alexander replied.

"You know what? It's stuff like that that people in this country are tired of," Trump shot back, to cheers from his supporters.

Alexander later cracked a joke about it on Twitter: 

While Trump defended his use of blue language on Thursday, he has promised to stop in the past.

"I won’t use foul language," he said at a Louisiana rally last month. "I’m just not going to do it. I’ll never do it again, actually, and I’ll never even copy what somebody asks me to say."

Trump also complained when former Mexican President Vicente Fox dropped an F-bomb on TV when talking about the plan to build a wall on the border. Trump called it "a filthy, disgusting word," while at the same time repeatedly using the word himself at his own events

 

Editor's Note: Donald Trump is a serial liarrampant xenophoberacist, misogynist, birther and bully who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims -- 1.6 billion members of an entire religion -- from entering the U.S.
