Donald Trump is nothing if not predictable. If you take a verbal swing at him he’s going to counter-punch–hard.
Jon Stewart of The Daily Show fame found that out when he dashed off a lazy swipe at the real estate mogul during Wednesday’s Comedy Central telecast.
“By the way, did you know Donald Trump’s birth name is F**kface Von Clownstick?” Stewart said
Trump responded via his Twitter account, mocking both the joke itself and Stewart’s choice to change his name for professional purposes.
“What’s funny about the name “F**kface Von Clownstick” — it was not coined by Jon Leibowitz— he stole it from some moron on twitter. If Jon Stewart is so above it all & legit, why did he change his name from Jonathan Leibowitz?” Trump wrote. “He should be proud of his heritage! Jon Stewart @TheDailyShow is a total phony – he should cherish his past — not run from it.”
Trump previously sparred with Rosie O’Donnell, a feud which involved more crass name-calling than the current Trump-Stewart dustup–so far.
