Donald Trump Mails Marked-Up Vanity Fair Blog Post to Graydon Carter

Oh, Donald Trump! We had no idea you had such a sensitive side.

This is the second post today that FishbowlNY is gleefully writing about Trump’s attack against the media for not taking him and his ill-conceived presidential campaign seriously. On March 24, Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter received a packet of documents from Trump containing a print-out of a VF Daily blog post from the week prior, which Trump had marked up with a black sharpie. VF Daily posts the marked-up document on its site, because it is awesome.

Among Trump’s comments:

Graydon — I know far more about you than you know about me. You never got the “Trump Thing.” As one of your writers (…) recently said, “Graydon doesn’t like you.”

He also calls a Forbes’ estimate of his wealth “billions too low” and circles the name of the author of the piece (Juli Weiner) and scrawls “bad writer!” next to it. We hope she’s not too torn up about this.

Trump, take our advice. It’s only a matter of time before the Charlie Sheen comparisons. In the meantime, we will keep posting about him in the vain hope that he’ll eventually respond to us. We could use the editorial suggestions.
