Bill Cosby to Trump: "Run or Shut Up"

During an appearance on the "Today Show," Bill Cosby slammed Donald Trump's political aspirations, telling him to "run or shut up."

Comedic actor and education advocate Bill Cosby went on the Today Show Thursday to talk about his efforts to eliminate disparities in low-income schools. His segment followed yet another one of Donald Trump’s birther tirades. When host Meredith Vieira brought up Trump’s potential presidential bid, Cosby offered one his trademark witty but curmudgeonly responses.

“Oh, please with Donald Trump. Take him home with you,” Cosby told a slightly stunned Vieira.

Cosby slammed Trump’s alleged indecision about whether he will actually run for office, saying that the billionaire businessman is “full of it.”

“You run or shut up," Cosby said. “Look, people have run for president for any reason. Come on, open your mouth—run!” The only thing that Trump is running, Cosby added, is his mouth.

You can watch him discuss some serious education issues that plague many African-American communities and blast Trump here.
