David Letterman, Tracy Morgan Among the Donald Trump-hating Celebrities

Yahoo Contributor Network

Both "Saturday Night Live" star Seth Myers and President Barack Obama himself took more than a few pot shots at "Celebrity Apprentice" creator Donald Trump during Saturday Night's White House Correspondent's Dinner.

"Donald Trump has said he's running for president as a Republican '" which is surprising because I thought he was running as a joke," Myers quipped to the audience.

Obama's also had a go at Trump.

"Now, I know that he's taken some flak lately but no one is prouder to put this birth certificate matter to rest than The Donald. And that's because he can finally get back to focusing on the issues that matter, like, did we fake the moon landing? What really happened in Roswell? And where are Biggie and Tupac?" Obama said to loud laughter.

Myers and Obama are two celebrities on a growing list of Trump-hating celebrities.

David Letterman

David Letterman lashed out against "Celebrity Apprentice" creator and possible Presidential candidate while talking with guest Dr. Phil on "The Late Show" April 28. Letterman said that he's not sure he'll invite Trump back to his show after his constant tirades against President Barack Obama's birth certificate and academic record.

"It's all fun, it's all a circus, it's all a rodeo, until it starts to smack of racism. And then it's no longer fun," Letterman told Dr. Phil, a friend of Trump.

"So you thought it was racism?" Dr. Phil asked.

"Well, yes," Letterman responded. "Do you consider him to be a racist?"

"I do not," said Dr. Phil. "...I don't think he always thinks everything through. I think sometimes he's a little from the hip, and I don't think he has a racist bone in this body."

Letterman wasn't "If he comes back on this show, and I am not sure we want him back on this show under these circumstances, he ought to be prepared to apologize just for that kind of behavior."

Letterman was referring to Trump's recent interview with the Associated Press when he called President Obama's academic prowess into question.

"I heard he was a terrible student, terrible. How does a bad student go to Columbia and then to Harvard?" Trump said during the AP interview. "I'm thinking about it, I'm certainly looking into it. Let him show his records."

Letterman is not the only celebrity disgusted with Trump's constant accusations.

Robert DeNiro

Robert DeNiro took the opportunity to blast Trump during an interview with NBC's Brian Williams ahead of the Tribeca Film Festival.

"I won't mention names, but there are certain people on the news in the last couple of weeks -- what they're doing is crazy ...They're making statements about people that they don't even back up. Go get the facts before you start saying things about people," DeNiro told Williams.

"Any of those people have shows on my network on Sunday night?" Williams asked DeNiro, making a reference to Trump's "Celebrity Apprentice" show that airs Sunday nights on NBC.

DeNiro shook his head yes and went on to liken Trump to a "used car salesman" and said his bid for the White House is all a "big hustle."

Jerry Seinfeld

Comedian Jerry Seinfeld pulled out of an event for St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital that Trump's son Eric is holding because of Trump's birther accusations.

"Jerry... feels this kind of demagoguery has no place in public discourse... He has respectfully withdrawn from the event, and is making a contribution both to the Eric Trump Foundation and to [St. Jude]," Seinfeld's rep told the New York Post in a statement.

Trump didn't take too kindly to the snub and issued another statement via the Post.

"I just learned you canceled a show for my son's charity," Trump said. "Because of the fact that I am being very aggressive with respect to President Obama, who is doing an absolutely terrible job as our leader."

Seinfeld attempted to calm things in a later interview.

"I have no problem with him," Seinfeld just told Extra . "I just can't be with him."

Tracy Morgan

"30 Rock" comedian Tracy Morgan is pretty angry with Trump and he'd like to settle things in person.

"Tell him I've got it and it's in Brooklyn, and if he wants to see it come and get it," Morgan told PopEater. Let's see if his a'" will come down to Brooklyn and get it. He needs to leave the President alone, he's the President. Come on, man, nobody got no time for Donald Trump. Go build buildings, go play with your Lego set. We don't give any credence to that."
