SPITTOON OR SWALLOW? – Donald Trump on Tobacco Use

Donald Trump asked [former contestant] Chris Shelton if he was chewing tobacco during a task. "I had a dip in….." the real estate investor from Las Vegas admitted. Mr. Trump's tobacco nerve had been struck once again. "I don't want a guy working for me that chews tobacco," he revealed. "You know in New York, tobacco doesn't play, I'll tell you."

Trump continued interrogating Chris about his tobacco use, asking if he uses a spittoon….. Mr. Trump still wanted an answer. Chris refused to respond. "I don't think this is at all relevant," he said. Donald disagreed: "I think it is, because I don't want a guy working for me that needs a spittoon."
