Donald Trump's Kids Told Their Father To Mitigate Obama Bashing: Report

Donald Trump's children intervened with their father's bashing of President Obama ahead of the November election, the New York Daily News reported on Saturday.

The very outspoken birther and "Celebrity Apprentice" host took to his Twitter account and seemingly fancy HD YouTube videos to viciously attack the president. After Obama won reelection on November 6, Trump called the election "a total sham and a travesty." He also suggested that a revolution should occur. He later deleted those tweets. Trump later deleted a number of his incendiary tweets.

According to a New York Daily News source, Trump's three eldest children, Eric, Donald Jr. and Ivanka, held a meeting with their father at his Fifth Avenue offices in mid-October. "They showed a lot of respect, but told him he’s worked too long and too hard to build up the reputation he has. They understand completely he’s always been outspoken and that he likes attention, but this is too much," the source told the New York Daily News.

Trump's rep denied the meeting ever took place. After the election and Trump's Twitter rant, even Barbara Walters took a moment to intervene. "Donald, you're making a fool of yourself. You're not hurting Obama, you're hurting Donald and that hurts me because you're a decent man. Stop it. Get off it, Donald," she harshly said.

While it seems as though Trump considers Obama his number one foe, the "Celebrity Apprentice" host has also publicly feuded with Rosie O'Donnell (though he did tweet her well wishes after her heart attack), Lawrence O'Donnell, Star Jones and Cher. Last week, Wendy Williams and Bravo's Andy Cohen reenacted Trump's Twitter feuds in appropriate wig attire.
