When Trump was being roasted he ok'd jokes about him and daughter Ivanka - but NOT amt of $

Just saying.

He enjoys people saying he and his daughter could be an item.

This joke was off-limits at Donald Trump's Comedy Central roast


According to Aaron Lee, who has written for almost every Comedy Central roast since Pamela Anderson's in 2005, the writers get a list of topics that are and aren't allowed. "Each year, the 'roastee' has certain topics they declare off-limits," Lee writes on List. "It's always interesting to learn what is 'sacred' for a celebrity."

Here's a rundown of what was allowed and not allowed:

ALLOWED: Jokes about Trump's hair
ALLOWED: Jokes about Trump's wife Melania (and his two previous marriages)
ALLOWED: Jokes about Trump having sex with models
ALLOWED: Jokes about the failure of Trump Steaks, Trump Water, Trump Cologne, and other Trump products
ALLOWED: Jokes about Trump's failed casinos
ALLOWED: Jokes about how Trump only became successful thanks to his wealthy father
ALLOWED: Jokes about Trump's weight
ALLOWED: Jokes about Trump being attracted to his daughter Ivanka
NOT ALLOWED: Any joke that suggests Trump is not actually as wealthy as he claims to be
