Word broke earlier that there was beef with Samuel L. Jackson and Donald Trump. It all stems from a recent interview that Jackson gave to United Airlines’ Rhapsody magazine where The Hateful Eight actor talks about playing with Trump and his alleged cheating habits:
“I’ve golfed with him,” Jackson told the magazine for its latest issue.
“But it’s funny — last week or so, I actually got a bill from Trump National Golf Club,” he continued. “And I haven’t been there in four or five years, so I had my assistant call. They said it was for membership dues. And I said, ‘I’m not a member,’ and they said, ‘Yeah, you are — you have a member number.’ Apparently he’d made me a member of one of his golf clubs, and I didn’t even know it!”
Now this is nothing much until Donald Trump decides to respond to the interview on Twitter in his typical Donald Trump manner:
I don’t know @SamuelLJackson, to best of my knowledge haven't played golf w/him & think he does too many TV commercials—boring. Not a fan.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 5, 2016
Now the thing about this tweet is that Jackson apparently didn’t know much about it until he shows up to chat with Seth Meyers earlier on Tuesday. Meyers brings up the message and the idea that Trump doesn’t know Jackson, letting it all snowball from there.
