Celebrities packed the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City last night for Comedy Central’s roast of Donald Trump, the developer, presumed presidential candidate, “Celebrity Apprentice” overlord, prospective baseball mogul, hopeful Tavern on the Green rescuer, and all-around overexposed personality. Word is that the roast — slated to air March 15 at 10:30 p.m. — was pretty brutal (from comedian Jeff Ross: “Actually, Donald, Comedy Central wanted to roast someone more likable, but Bernie Madoff was busy!”), but at least it’s all for a good cause. TMZ reports that Trump was originally against the public humiliation, but agreed when he found out it came with a $2 million payday. Trump will be donating the entirety of his earnings last night to charity, he said, before declaring to the audience post-roast, “What a great honor it must be for you to honor me here tonight!” [TMZ] and [Fancast]
