Donald Trump — you’re roasted. Or he will be when the Friars Club gets hold of him.
Trump will be the subject of the annual New York Friars Club roast, where comedians sling their best zingers, scheduled for Oct. 15.
The billionaire real-estate mogul has been everywhere lately, from his hit reality show, “The Apprentice” — with its catch phrase, “You’re fired” — to his announcement that he’s engaged to his longtime girlfriend, model Melania Knauss.
“I am so proud that during our centennial year the name of Donald Trump gets added to the Friars’ illustrious list of roastees,” Friars Club dean Freddie Roman said in a recent statement. “Considering how hot Donald is, in every aspect of the word, this promises to be one of the largest, if not THE largest roast in our hundred-year history.”
Previous celebrities who’ve been roasted include Jerry Lewis, Billy Crystal, Rob Reiner, Johnny Carson and Hugh Hefner.
