Usually anything goes at a comedy roast, but that wasn't the case in 2011 when future President Donald Trump agreed to get skewered on Comedy Central by the likes of Larry King, Snoop Dogg, Jeff Ross and MC Seth MacFarlane, who opened up about the experience yesterday on 'Late Night with Seth Meyers.'
"The only thing I think we weren't allowed to joke about was the bankruptcy - bankruptcies," MacFarlane said. "Everything else was on the table. That was the one thing he was sensitive about."
That's not surprising since the 'Art of the Deal' author's image as a savvy businessman who eats and breathes success doesn't gel with the fact that he's declared bankruptcy 6 times on businesses bearing his name. Those filings involve marquee companies like the Trump Taj Mahal, Trump Castle and Trump Plaza. But putting the kibosh on bankruptcy jokes wasn't the worst part of the roast.
"I just remember thinking, 'Man, this guy is really frigging boring," MacFarlane told Meyers. "He's just really dull."
