(Newser) – Usually, politicians go around kissing babies and winning votes, but Donald Trump's unique path to the White House appears to be pissing off as many people as he possibly can: The Donald today smacked back at David Letterman after the host said last week that Trump's birtherism were starting to "smack of racism," reports Fox News. "Based upon your statements," Trump wrote, "and despite the fact that we have always done so well together, especially in your ratings, I am canceling my May 18th appearance on your show."

Trump writes that he "was disappointed" by Letterman's comments and says, "In actuality, nothing could be further from the truth and there is nobody who is less of a racist than Donald Trump." But wait, there's more: "Additionally, please inform your staff that I will likewise not do the 'top ten' list that they had been trying to set up." Zing. Letterman's camp had no comment.
