After placing sixth on Celebrity Apprentice in 2010 and donating her winnings to True Colors Fund and Stonewall Community Foundation, Cyndi Lauper has some harsh criticism for Donald Trump in a candid new interview.

“I’m not going to kiss ass with somebody like that,” she tells Next, a New York City gay rag, adding that she feels "disappointed" by Trump’s vocal opposition to same-sex marriage, civil-union rights, and Obama.

“I felt that what he said about the gay community was disappointing because a lot of gay people work for him,” Broadway's Kinky Boots composer continues. “It’s just sad. I thought he could have done better for his country than just go to the lowest common denominator and stir up the crap. It’s our country, it’s not wrestling. If you try and make our president fail, it doesn’t matter who he is, you make our country fail. And if you really are a patriot, if you really give a shit about our country, you don’t do stuff like that. First of all, you’re an entertainer, and you make ugly buildings, and you’re famous for it. And you have a reality show with very high ratings. Don’t step into the forum like that. Become educated with facts. Don’t just be a shit-stirrer. Our country is in trouble and he keeps wanting to make [Obama] fail. Let’s call a spade a spade. The guy’s a black man and that’s your issue? What kind of idiot are you? Come on.”

Wow, why don't you tell us how you really feel, Cyndi?

Is it only a matter of time before this elevates into a Trumpian feud to rival Rosie O'Donnell's?
