In a recent appearance on “Larry King Now,” comedian Andrew Dice Clay explained the origin of Donald Trump’s persona on the campaign trail, saying it’s the Republican presidential front-runner’s “New York attitude.

Dice initially shied away from commenting when asked by King to weigh in on “Trump fever.”

“I never talk politics, religion or [Frank] Sinatra,” he said. ” That’s something I was taught as a kid, ‘never talk about those three things, you’re never going to win.'”

Dice said he was not shocked by the real estate tycoon’s success as a candidate because he “has a bigger than life personality.” The former “Celebrity Apprentice” contestant then opened up about an off-camera “tiff” he with Trump, who hosted the show for better than a decade — Trump supposedly told several big celebrity contestants on the show he was “more famous” that they were.

The comedian also said it was funny that Trump is sometimes compared to him, before explaining the candidate’s appeal.

“What they see is the New York attitude,” he said.

“You have it also,” Dice told King. “I’ve seen you get mad on your show and shut people down. People from New York are — and he’s from Brooklyn, no matter what — the most aggressive. … [New York] is the most aggressive city in the world.”
