Donald Trump goes after Jon Stewart on Twitter over 'Daily Show' joke
Believe it or not, Donald Trump is stirring up the dust on Twitter again. During a "Daily Show" segment on an American politician who was born in Canada, Jon Stewart mentioned Trump, who made headlines for claiming President Barack Obama was from another country. Then, Stewart let the audience know that Trump's "birth name" is "F***face Von Clownstick." Stewart said he hopes the name made its way to Twitter.
Of course, it definitely made its way to the social networking website, catching the eye of Trump himself. The "Celebrity Apprentice" star then sent out a string of tweets. First, he says, "Amazing how the haters & losers keep tweeting the name 'F***face Von Clownstick' like they are so original & like no one else is doing it." That was followed with, "What's funny about the name 'F***face Von Clownstick' -- it was not coined by Jon Leibowitz -- he stole it from some moron on twitter." Jon Leibowitz is the birth name of Stewart.
Donald didn't end there, though, he continued to go after Stewart, writing, "If Jon Stewart is so above it all & legit, why did he change his name from Jonathan Leibowitz? He should be proud of his heritage!" He then called the host "phony" and "overrated" before moving onto other things, like promoting his TV show.
Stewart isn't on Twitter, but "The Daily Show's" account sent two messages in reply. In the first, they write, "Can't an overrated Jew have a complicated relationship with his dad without being accused of hiding his heritage? Finally, they respond, "We seem to have hit a F***face Von Nervestick."
No word on whether any of this will make it onto the next "Daily Show," but one can hope it does.
