I've written jokes for every Comedy Central Roast special since Pam Anderson in 2005. (Except Charlie Sheen!) Each year, the "roastee" has certain topics they declare off-limits. It's always interesting to learn what is "sacred" for a celebrity. Here's a list of ways we were allowed to make fun of Trump - and the ONE area that was forbidden.
  1. [DISCLAIMER: This got misrepresented in the Vulture piece, so I'm editing to clarify: This is NOT a list that came from Donald Trump. The only thing we got from Trump was the request not to say he exaggerates his wealth. This is my own list of topics that performers made jokes about on the show, which were allowed.]
  2. ALLOWED: Jokes about Trump's hair
  3. ALLOWED: Jokes about Trump's wife Melania (and his two previous marriages)
  4. ALLOWED: Jokes about Trump having sex with models
  5. ALLOWED: Jokes about the failure of Trump Steaks, Trump Water, Trump Cologne and other Trump products
  6. ALLOWED: Jokes about Trump's failed casinos
  7. ALLOWED: Jokes about how Trump only became successful thanks to his wealthy father
  8. ALLOWED: Jokes about Trump's weight
  9. ALLOWED: Jokes about Trump being attracted to his daughter Ivanka
  10. NOT ALLOWED: Any joke that suggests Trump is not actually as wealthy as he claims to be
