There has been much high-fiving and back slapping at Gawker today over what they consider their uber-clever poke in Donald Trump’s eye. Paying The Donald back for releasing Lindsey Graham’s cell phone number, Gawker released Trump’s own cell phone number to the public, hoping that Trump’s personal cell phone would be flooded with calls and messages from liberal waste products.
Getting the last laugh again, The Donald recorded an automatic “Trump For President” campaign ad on the phone (listen to the audio below), after which the caller cannot leave a message. So, rather than being able to leave a nasty message on Trump’s cell phone, liberal losers will enjoy a nice Trump campaign ad, after which they are told that they cannot leave a message, and the phone hangs up.
The campaign ad Trump recorded on his Gawker phone:
“Hi. This is Donald Trump and I’m running for the presidency of the United States of America. With your help and support, together we can make America truly great again. Visit me on Twitter at @realDonaldTrump, and visit my campaign website at www.donaldtrump.com. Hope to see you on the campaign trail. We’re going to do it.”
Give the number a call. 917-756-8000. If you get a busy signal, hang up and call back.

Donald Trump has a barbed sense of humor, and he unleashed it Tuesday on Gawker after the liberal gossip website published his cell phone number.
Trump made news last month amid a feud with Sen. Lindsey Graham by reading his private cell phone number out loud during a speech in Graham’s native South Carolina.
On Monday Gawker turned the tables, publishing Trump’s own number. But The Donald has ricocheted the slap back in the website’s direction by abandoning the number and replacing the voicemail greeting with a presidential campaign ad.
‘Hi. This is Donald Trump and I’m running for the presidency of the United States of America,’ callers to 917-756-8000 now hear.
‘With your help and support, together we can make America truly great again. Visit me on Twitter at @realDonaldTrump, and visit my campaign website at www.donaldtrump.com. Hope to see you on the campaign trail. We’re going to do it.’
DailyMail.com obtained the same phone number on July 22 and called it. When Trump answered, he was asked if he was worried someone might publish it.
He said then that the number Gawker ‘outed’ on Monday was ‘an old one that I really don’t use much anymore.’
‘I have six private cell phones,’ he said then. ‘It doesn’t matter to me one bit. … ‘Some are super-private, you know. This isn’t one of those. There are people who have it.’
‘I change them all the time,’ Trump insisted. ‘I can always just get rid of this one.’
