Trump Gloats About Not Helping Dying Man Because He Was ‘Disgusted’ By Blood

If you’re in a room with Donald Trump and you start bleeding don’t expect him to help. Trump would much rather turn away than help someone in need.

During a radio interview with Howard Stern back on July 16, 2008, Trump bragged to the radio host about turning away in disgust as an elderly man nearly bled to death in front of him.

According to Trump, he was hosting a Red Cross charity event at his Mar-a-Lago resort when a man of about 80 fell on the floor and was badly injured.

“So what happens is, this guy falls off right on his face, hits his head and I thought he died,” Trump said. “And you know what I did? I said, ‘Oh my god, that’s disgusting, and I turned away. I couldn’t, you know — he was right in front of me. I turned away, I didn’t want to touch him.”

“He’s bleeding all over the place, I felt terrible, you know,” Trump continued. “Beautiful marble floor, it didn’t look so good. It changed color, it became very red, and you have this poor guy, 80 years old, laying on the floor, conscious, and all of the rich people are turning away, ‘Oh my god, this is terrible, this is disgusting,’ and, you know, they’re turning away, nobody wants to help the guy, and his wife is screaming, she sitting right next to him and she’s screaming.”

Trump then told Stern that the Marines, who were given the worst table in the room despite being the guests of honor, were the only ones who came to the man’s rescue.

“So from the back of the room they come running forward, they grabbed him, they put the blood all over the place, it’s all over their uniforms, they’re taking it, they swipe — they ran him out, they created a stretcher — they call it a human stretcher, their arms out, like five guys on each side,” Trump said. “They ran him out, I never saw it, they ran him out. I was saying, ‘Get that blood cleaned up, it’s disgusting.’”

If it wasn’t enough that Trump refused to help a man who almost bled to death, he didn’t even check on him later to see if he had survived.

“I forgot to call, the next day I forgot to call to say, is he OK,” Trump said. “He was OK, it’s just not my thing. I just don’t like looking at blood.”
