Marlee Matlin Responds to Reports Donald Trump Mocked Her For Being Deaf

Marlee Matlin is speaking out after reports surfaced that Donald Trump mocked and demeaned her during her time on Celebrity Apprentice.

According to the Daily Beast, the 51-year-old actress was made fun of for being deaf and called “retarded” by Donald.

“The term is abhorrent and should never be used. The fact that we are talking about this during a very important moment in American history has upset me deeply,” Marlee wrote on her Twitter after reports surfaced.

She added, “So what’s my response? It’s not about insults or taking each other down. As a person who is Deaf, as a woman, as a mom, as a wife, as an actor, I have a voice. And I’m using that voice to make myself heard…and vote.”

See all that Marlee had to say in her response below…

    Anything to make Trump lose the presidency

    As he should.

    This is how Narcissists cope with their own self loathing. When my aunt (whose therapist terminated her because: NO CURE) she told me “You had a shitty mother” (twice) in MY HOME trying to hurt me, I have never spoken to her again. He meets the criteria in the DSM V. Gravely mentally ill. Not someone who can’t deal with OTHER powerful people.

    If Trump wins, it’s meant to be, but yea, he has a whole host of psychological problems.

    I don’t know how evangelical Christians can overlook his horrible character. Even Franklin Graham’s folks are supporting Trump. I can’t believe it!

    Trump is worse than I ever imagined. I tried to give him the benefit of the doubt, since I was a fan of his shows. Hearing about all his nastiness behind the scenes? It is just down & dirty behavior. No class!

    Although I still like his daughters okay, his older sons must have a touch of sadism in them to do such a horrible thing like TROPHY HUNTING. I admired all his children for a long time, but after learning this about the sons, no more. And you can’t tell me Trump didn’t have a hand in them joining such a repulsive blood sport.

  • Do Tell

    Trump had everything in his favor. He swayed a lot of people because he’s a talented talker. He should have been able to win. If he loses, must be God saying, “Nope!”

  • Do Tell

    Yes, because he fired up a lot of people who believed a billionaire businessman could get the job done better than anyone else, better than seasoned politicians who have much more information than Trump about the world’s situations.

    One thing I noticed. Where was the talk about Trump’s “lack of experience?” I’ve barely heard that. He is being given a free pass.

  • Do Tell

    We won’t know that until we know. Both have problems, but honestly, between the two of them, I would rather shake Hillary’s hand over Trump’s. Trump has proven to be an esp, mean, vile man. He’s regularly called other people liars, but he needs to look into the mirror.

    Btw, I won’t be voting.

    I have friends who really hate Hillary for standing by Bill Clinton during his philandering and scandals. But what she did is not uncommon. Many men cheat and their wives choose to stay with them. When the other woman rears her head, the wife is usually angry and against her. It’s just nothing new.

    Hillary stood by Bill Clinton because she still loves him. She said as much as that in an interview. People will overlook a lot of unfortunate things about someone they love.

  • Do Tell

    I heard somewhere that Trump was raised to be a “killer.” He won’t admit weaknesses and that’s probably why he refuses to apologize and if he does, it comes off as insincere.

    Trump despises men who are quieter, non aggressive types. He’ll pounce on them like a bully. That’s probably another reason why he despises President Obama so thoroughly and took the birther issue so ridiculously far. Obama’s style is more relaxed, a cooler head.

    Trump likes women who are beautiful, ladylike (feminine), independent and intelligent. Now I have no doubt that Trump was carrying a torch for Megyn Kelly “big time” before they got into that whole fiasco.

  • Legendary Trolly

    Im telling you, if you read his comments, they are hilarious. Trump is a wild boy!!!

  • Esmeralda

    It honestly has nothing to do with her marriage but what she has done in her career as a politician. Obama endorses her and has nice words for her even though she bailed out on him as Secretary of State. The Benghazi incident is the icing on the cake. She flip flops harder than a fish out of water. It’s whatever is convenient for her at the moment. She let all the illegals come in to rape this country even more then watch her turn around and blame someone else like always. She voted for certain wars and then blames the Republicans solely. She vacations in Haiti yet most of the people there can’t even afford more than a bag of rice. The problem with her is that she smile in your face and then stab you in the back. The reason why people like Trump is that he has no filter but he’s saying what he really thinks. And no I’m not voting for any of them.

  • Do Tell

    The problem is Democrats have just as many bad things to say about Republican politicians. So they all have faults. But Hillary has been playing the game in Washington for many years. Donald Trump has not. He has no political history, really, so we’re not able to honestly track his behavior on much.

    But I am very concerned with character. Donald Trump is being supported by religious people, but he is NOT religious. I doubt he even knows how to pray. I believe he is the God of his own life. I saw him meeting with evangelicals and I laughed.

    Then all these things are coming out about how he REALLY feels about women and people he looks down upon and makes fun of behind their backs.

    Donald Trump is a liar and he will stab someone in the back faster than anyone. And believe me, he does have a filter when it benefits him.

  • Do Tell

    Yes, and I couldn’t help laughing all those years when he was just a celebrity (he had such audacity), but what he is into now is not funny. THIS is serious business.
