Donald Trump On Beyonce's Halftime Show: 'Ridiculous' And 'Not Appropriate'

Big surprise here: Donald Trump has slammed Beyonce's Super Bowl performance last Sunday because of what he called "suggestive" dancing and inappropriate behavior onstage. Appearing on "The Howard Stern Show" on Feb. 6, the 66-year-old real estate mogul said: "When Beyonce was thrusting her hips forward in a very suggestive manner, if someone else would have done that it would have been a national scandal. I thought it was ridiculous ... I thought it was not appropriate," he said.

Beyonce performed at the halftime show to much critical acclaim, despite the unflattering photographs that emerged afterward of the pop star making unusually aggressive poses. And though the outspoken Trump made clear that he found Bey's show distasteful, he recognized he was in the minority when it came to his visceral reaction to the performance. "There's been no mention of [her scandalous behavior]. So obviously, it must not have been so bad. She gets a pass."
