From the editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post to top actresses, no one has escaped the business magnatea��s acid tongue
All about size
In an interview with The New York Times, the 69-year-old took it upon himself to comment on supermodel Heidi Kluma��s size. While admitting that he sometimes goes a a�?little bit fara�?, Trump did not hesitate to say, a�?Heidi Klum. Sadly, shea��s no longer a 10.a�? A day after that, the Americaa��s Got Talent judge gave a tongue-in-cheek reply with a video posted on Twitter. The 12-second clip showed the 49-year-old at a photo shoot, wearing a white T-shirt with number 10 on it. Then a man wearing a Trump mask sneaks up from behind, snatches the number 10 off her tee, revealing 9.99. Klum followed it up with a tweet, a�?#TrumpHasSpoken #sadly #9.99 #NoLongerA10 #IHadAGoodRun#donaldtrump#HeidiTrumps
The Fox News debate in August caught everyonea��s attention for all the wrong reasons. Trump lashed out at anchor Megyn Kelly, with tweets writing her off as unprofessional. Referring to a 10-day vacation she took, Trump tweeted, a�?@megynkelly must have had a terrible vacation, she is really off her game. Was afraid to confront Dr Cornel West. No clue on immigration!a�? It was a dig at Kellya��s discussion with West on the show. He re-tweeted a message from one of his followers, too, that called Kelly a bimbo. Trump also riled Kellya��s fellow Fox host, Bill Oa��Reilly, by tweeting, a�?@oreillyfactor, why dona��t you have some knowledgeable talking heads on your show for a change instead of the same old Trump haters.a�? This fight sure seems like it will
When Fox News debate host Megyn Kelly asked Trump about past commentsa�� describing women as fat pigs and slobsa��he wasA� unfazed, replying, a�?Only Rosie Oa��Donnella�?. In fact, the Trump-Oa��Donnel bashing has been going on since 2006, when Trump called the American comedian a�?a disgusting person inside and outa�? and said she was a a�?sloba�? with a a�?fat, ugly facea�?. He crossed all boundaries when he tweeted about her engagement with then girlfriend Michelle Rounds, saying he feels sorry for Rosiea��s new partner whose parents would be devastated at the thought of their daughter being with @Rosie, a true loser. Oa��Donnella��s responseA�was, a�?Wow. Youa��re an ass.a�?go a long way.
Line of attack
Trump had a field day bashing a female Republican presidential hopeful during his visit to the Iowa State Fair on August 15. When a reporter asked him about his thoughts on his contender, Carly Fiorina, he said, a�?Shea��s a very nice woman. She got fired, she did a terrible job at Hewlett-Packard, she lost in a landslidea��other than that, shea��s a very nice woman.a�? Not surprisingly, this rubbed Fiorina the wrong way. However, we were a little let down by her tame response. The next day, she told ABC News that Trumpa��s gone after just about everybody. a�?Hea��s entitled to, obviously,a�? she stated, adding that Hewlett-Packard is a publicly traded company and the results are there for every body to see.
All for fame
In a recent interview with CNN, lawyer Elizabeth Beck alleged that Trump referred to her as a�?disgustinga�� when she requested a break to pump milk for her newborn child during a deposition. Trump responded by calling her a a�?whack-joba�� who a�?invented storiesa�� out of revenge and a�?really knows nothing about mea��a��despite being featured in cable TV interviews about him. His argument: a�?How can someone become a Donald Trump expert when I have only sat with her once for a deposition.a�? The presidential candidate continued, a�?She is crazy! She wanted to breast pump in front me and it is disgusting.a�? While Beck seems to have got her share of fame, Trump does not deny any of his comments and sticks by them.
Whoa��s the clown?
This July, when Arianna Huffington, the editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post, decided they were no longer going to cover Trump as a political story, but rather as entertainment story, he waged a Twitter war on her and even shot volleys on Facebook. The Republican presidential candidate tweeted that The Huffington Post was a a�?glorified bloga�? and that a�?the liberal clown @ariannahuff told her minions at the money losing @HuffingtonPost to cover me as entertainment. I am #1 in Huff Post Poll.a�? But this is not a first. Way back in 2012, Trump had launched a series of personal attacks on her on Twitter, after The Huffington Post published an article on how he gets on the wrong side of everyone.
