Donald Trump’s Most High-Profile Celebrity Feuds

Donald Trump publicly hurling insults at another famous person, such as Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski, is nothing new; he just hasn’t always launched his barbs from the most powerful office in the land. Over the years, plenty of people have snapped back at the former reality star, leading to full-on feuds. Take a look back at some of President Trump’s most high-profile rows with celebs. (Typos in tweets are left intact.)

Megyn Kelly

Before Brzezinski, Kelly seemed to be Trump’s favorite target in the media. It started in August 2015, when the then-Fox News host questioned Trump’s temperament while moderating the first Republican debate. “Wow, @megynkelly really bombed tonight. People are going wild on twitter! Funny to watch,” Trump tweeted. He later slammed her again during an interview with CNN, infamously saying, “There was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever.” In April 2016, the future president met with Kelly, at her request, at his Trump Tower, which resulted in an interview a month later. Kelly later said she and Trump were on good terms, but that 2016 was “one of the toughest years” of her life. (Photo by Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images)

Robert De Niro

Robert De Niro does not hold back when it comes to his thoughts on Trump and his Trump administration. In fact, he actually wants to punch Donald in the face. After Trump’s victory, De Niro even said he feels “like I did after 9/11.” De Niro has been going in on Trump hard since 2011 back, but so far, Trump hasn’t engaged.

Jerry Seinfeld

Jerry Seinfeld isn’t just overrated, he’s highly overrated. Donald Trump explained how he was unimpressed with the Seinfeld star and took to where else? Twitter, to express his feelings. When retweeting a fan, Trump added, “@kanikagahlaut: Can anyone explain why @JerrySeinfeld is so unfunny on twitter and @realDonaldTrump is so funny?” Jerry is highly overrated.” Jerry is actually grateful for Trump. At least, he was when Trump was just a presidential hopeful. “If God gave comedians the power to invent people, the first person we would invent is Donald Trump. … God’s gift to comedy,” he told Extra.

Arianna Huffington

Donald Trump decided to insert himself in… Arianna Huffington’s divorce? He tweeted, “@ariannahuff is unattractive both inside and out. I fully understand why her former husband left her for a man- he made a good decision.” Huffington has kept her comments about the president strictly about his job… with a few digs thrown in. “I promise you if [Trump] got eight hours sleep and did not tweet in the middle of the night, the next four years would be infinitely better for the world,” she told CNBC. “So I highly recommend that his advisers take the phone away.” (Photo by Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for TIME)

Bette Midler

Bette Midler is one of the unlucky women who can say the president of the United States has attacked her over her appearance. Midler isn’t exactly shy in bashing Trump and the former reality star hasn’t held back in verbal retaliation. One read tweet read, “@bettemidler talks about my hair but I’m not allowed to talk about her ugly face or body — so I won’t. Is this a double standard?” He has also tweeted, “While @BetteMidler is an extremely unattractive woman, I refuse to say that because I always insist on being politically correct.” (Photo by Jim Spellman/WireImage)

Bill Maher

It should come as no surprise that Bill Maher and Donald Trump don’t exactly get along. The liberal talk show host has called rump a “whiny little bitch,” an “orange sphincter” and “President Man Baby” among many other pet names. Trump doesn’t find them amusing. In 2013, he sued Maher for $5 million over an orangutan sex joke the talk host made. (Photo by Evan Agostini/Invision/AP)


In 2012, Trump didn’t approve of Cher tweeting about Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, so, of course, he tweeted at her. “Cher attacked @MittRomney. She is an average talent who is out of touch with reality. Like @Rosie O’Donnell, a total loser!” Cher was then one of many people publicly calling for Macy’s to stop selling Trump merchandise, because of the Apprentice star’s insistence that President Barack Obama was not born in America. (Obama was, in fact, born in Hawaii.) This did not sit well with Trump, who tweeted, “@cher should spend more time focusing on her family and dying career!” You get the picture. Their relationship only worsened when he went into politics. (Photo by Kevin Mazur/Getty Images for Fast Company)

Jon Stewart

Like many people in Hollywood, Jon Stewart is officially in Donald Trump’s “overrated” club! Back when The Daily Show Host would make remarks about the Republican candidate, Trump wasn’t having it. “I promise you that I’m much smarter than Jonathan Leibowitz – I mean Jon Stewart @TheDailyShow. Who, by the way, is totally overrated,” Trump tweeted. The fact Stewart isn’t on your TV screen five nights a week hasn’t slowed him down in his political commentary. “The new official language of the United States is bulls**t,” Stewart said, mocking Trump on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. “I, Donald J. Trump, have instructed my staff to speak only in bulls**t.” (Photo by Andrew Toth/Getty Images for Tribeca Film Festival)

Mark Cuban

Clash of the billionaires. To say that Donald Trump and Mark Cuban haven’t seen eye-to-eye is an understatement. The two have traded barbs in the media ever since the primaries and apparently Trump got even more riled up when the New York Post speculated Cuban could challenge for president in 2020. Trump tweeted in February, “I know Mark Cuban well. He backed me big-time but I wasn’t interested in taking all of his calls.He’s not smart enough to run for president!” Cuban clapped back that it’s “better for all of us that he is tweeting rather than trying to govern.” (Photo by Allen Berezovsky/Getty Images for Fashion Media)

Alec Baldwin

Baldwin’s impression of POTUS is yuge! But, of course, Trump himself is not a fan and hasn’t been since Baldwin’s bit became a staple of Saturday Night Live during the 2016 campaign. After the election, Trump has taken to Twitter to criticize the show for being “unwatchable” and “not funny” multiple times, once asking for “equal time.” To which Baldwin responded, “Equal time? Election is over. There is no more equal time. Now u try 2 b Pres + ppl respond. That’s pretty much it.” Baldwin had suggested he might stop doing the impression, but now says he’ll be back in the fall. (Photo by Roy Rochlin/FilmMagic)

Rosie O’Donnell

POTUS’s feud with O’Donnell goes all the way back to 2006, when she was co-hosting The View and called him out for a decision he made as co-owner of the Miss USA pageant and also accusing him of going bankrupt. He threatened to sue. “Rosie’s a loser. A real loser,” he responded. “I look forward to taking lots of money from my nice fat little Rosie.” They later traded barbs when Rosie announced a marriage, debuted a new show, suffered a heart attack (although he did wish her well!), and returned to and left The View for a second time. No surprise, O’Donnell has fiercely opposed Trump since he launched his campaign. (Photo by Dia Dipasupil/Getty Images)

Mika Brzezinski

Trump is facing fallout from his June 29 tweets about the Morning Joe co-host, after she riffed on him having fake covers of himself on Time magazine in his golf clubs. “I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don’t watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year’s Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!” Trump was roundly criticized for the tweets — including by those in his own party — because it was a distraction from the real issues. It was also another example of Trump’s highly questionable treatment of women. For her part, Brzezinski hit back with a photo of a Cheerios box that read, “Made for little hands,” referencing an insult made about Trump during his campaign and said the incident made her worried for the country.
