Let Us Never Forget Donald Trump's Involvment In The Robsten Crisis Of 2012

Donald Trump: Love Guru.

Posted on

As billionaire businessman and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump continues to make headlines, many are questioning his ability to face domestic and foreign affairs.

While it's true that many of The Donald's statements have been outright racist, vulgar, and outright embarrassing for the United States, we must also remember the hand he played in one of the most important domestic (and also foreign) disasters to erupt between the United Kingdom and the U.S. in recent history.

Let us return to the year 2012...

Obama was running for re-election against Mitt Romney, London was hosting the Summer Olympics, and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 about to be released.

America's favorite* transatlantic on-screen and off-screen couple blissfully ruled the Twilight franchise


*I don't know if they were anybody's favorite, but they had a massive fandom following.

July 24, 2012 will forever live on in infamy as the day our collective hearts broke from the news that Robsten would be now more, as US Weekly broke the news that Kristen Stewart had cheated on Robert Pattinson with her Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders.

Where were you when the news broke? I was shopping for new glasses with my sister and found out via Twitter (probably) on my very first smart iPhone.

"BUT Twilight Breaking Dawn: Part 2 IS JUST MONTHS AWAY FROM RELEASE," the world proclaimed.

Lionsgate Films

How are they going to do the press tour now?

What was the premiere going to be like?

Would this impact the numbers?

K-Stew was quick to respond with her heartfelt apology, released to People Magazine:

"I'm deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I've caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected. This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I'm so sorry." - Kristen Stewart

By October, it was clear that the press tour and the box office would be fine, as R-Patz seemed to have forgiven Kristen for her "momentary indiscretion."

All seemed well, except...

WHAT?? - Donald Trump

Donald Trump, then just a billionaire businessman, The Apprentice host, and leader of the Obama birther movement, decided to weigh in with a series of tweets of his thoughts on this global crisis.

Robert Pattinson should not take back Kristen Stewart. She cheated on him like a dog & will do it again--just watch. He can do much better!

Beware, R-Patz, he cautioned his favorite* leading man. Beware.

*There is no confirmed proof that actor Robert Pattinson is Donald Trump's favorite leading man.

Lots of response to my Pattinson/Kristen Stewart reunion. She will cheat again--100 certain--am I ever wrong?

He maintains his position on the matter using his familiar smug confidence.

Robert I'm getting a lot of heat for saying you should dump Kristen- but I'm right. If you saw the Miss Universe girls you would reconsider.

Donald, is this an offer?

So many tweets & stories on Stewart/Pattinson Look, it doesn't matter-- the relationship will never be the same. It is permanently broken.

Even in 2012, he "told it like it is."

Everyone knows I am right that Robert Pattinson should dump Kristen Stewart. In a couple of years, he will thank me. Be smart, Robert.

The always humble Trump is very invested in the potential demise of this relationship.

Everyone is asking me to speak more on Robert & Kristen.I don't have time except to say "Robert, drop her, she cheated on you & will again!"

Donald Trump: Love Guru.

Miss Universe 2012 Pageant will be airing live on @nbc & @Telemundo december 19th. Open invite stands for Robert Pattinson.

How nice, it WAS an invitation!

Robert Pattinson is putting on a good face for the release of Twilight. He took my advice on Kristen Stewart...I hope!

*fingers crossed* - Trump

Everybody wants me to talk about Robert Pattinson and not Brian Williams—I guess people just don’t care about Brian!

At this point, he's become R-Patz's unofficial spokesman.

After Friday’s Twilight release, I hope Robert Pattinson will not be seen in public with Kristen--she will cheat on him again!

Note: This would be the last time Donald Trump ever spoke publicly on the relationship between Pattinson and Stewart. They would officially breakup in May 2013.

As we witness Donald's race to the White House, it's important to remember how we've seen him in a time of crisis. So as you go to vote for your favorite candidate, remember this event, remember Robsten.
