Morally and financially bankrupt fraudster Donald Trump, a man perhaps best known for high profile meltdowns and real estate disasters, has finally weighed in on the massive, and highly entertaining Sony Pictures hacking scandal. The powdery orange “mogul” has set his sights on Sony Pictures CEO Amy Pascal, who has been at the center of some of the scandal’s most damaging email correspondence. Pascal has reached out to Rev. Al Sharpton for advice regarding an email exchange she had with producer Scott Rudin, in which she wondered what, exactly, she should ask President Obama at a fundraiser. She suggested asking Obama if he liked Django Unchained, while Rudin suggested 12 Years a Slave. Oy.
So in an interview with the Daily Mail today, Trump says that Sony needs to show Pascal the door:
‘The [co-chair] of Sony, Amy Pascal, when she goes out and says “I’m going to seek the advice of Rev. Al Sharpton,” who I know very well, she should probably resign for stupidity reasons,’ Trump said.
‘Al Sharpton will toy with her, use her and then dispose of her.’
Say what you will about Al Sharpton, but these are some pretty rich words coming from Trump. And in other hacking news, the root of Sony’s problems, the ending of the “desperately unfunny” new film The Interview has been leaked. Spoiler: North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s head explodes.
