Donald Trump might be gaining momentum in his possible run for the Republican nomination for president of the United States, but one vote he won’t be getting is from Bill Cosby.

“Oh, please with Donald Trump,” Cosby told “Today” host Meredith Vieira last week when she asked the comedian about the presidential election. “Take him home with you.”

“Now why do you say that?” Vieira asked.

“Because he’s full of it,” Cosby replied and sat silently while Vieira waited a few moments.

“Based on what?” she finally asked, not wanting to lead the witness through any numerous reasons why Cosby might be offended that Trump is claiming that President Obama is a Muslim who was not born in the United States and is hiding those details.

“Based on what I just heard,” Cosby said referring to the Vieira’s interview with Trump which had just concluded. “You run, or shut up … but the only thing he’s running is his mouth.”

Cosby’s interview aired Monday morning and when it did, Trump responded via a statement that can be seen after the jump.

Trump, never one to back down from a heated debate, took on the beloved comedian in a statement Monday.
The other day on The Today Show, right after I was interviewed by Meredith Vieira, a terrific person and reporter, I happened to watch Bill Cosby who was on at the end of the show. While I have never been a fan of Cosby’s, I had always assumed he liked or respected me because every time I met him—the last time at the David Letterman show where I preceded him as a guest—he was always so nice, saying “let’s get together” —asking me out to dinner, and being polite to the point of offering to buy me a suit because he has a “great tailor.”

In any event, as I watched the show, the subject of Donald Trump came up. I was surprised to hear him blabber, somewhat incoherently “you run or shut up.” The hatred was pouring out of his eyes when he said this. As I am sure he must know I cannot run until this season of Celebrity Apprentice ends. I know that he has taken a lot of heat over the years in that he seems to be talking down to the people he’s talking to and purportedly trying to help. Actually, based on the way he acted, things are not looking too good for Cosby.

I wish he would be more honest, and if he doesn’t want me to run because he’s obviously an Obama fan, he should state the reasons and not come into my “green room” in front of numerous witnesses and treat me like his best friend, only to denigrate me when I’m not around. Sadly, he got more attention talking about me than he did on the merits of his own appearance—maybe he is not as dumb as I thought.

Mild-mannered crooner John Legend went a step further Thursday than Cosby, claiming that Trump’s accusations against the president are race-related.

“He needs to stop saying that racist … birther …,” Legend told Vulture at a gala at Lincoln Center in New York. “He should be ashamed of himself. It’s awful, really.”
