It's no secret that American businessman and politician Donald Trump built his personality on provocative beliefs and attitudes that have confused and angered a lot of people. So, it's not surprising that he made many enemies, but here are the biggest ones that have shown open hate and disapproval of him in the media.
Cuban has a history with Trump on Twitter. He asked Trump to shave his head for $1 million and Trump replied: “Offer me real money and I’d consider it. Your team and networks have lost so much money I doubt you have much left!”
When she found out that Macy's department stores used Trump-branded products, she protested on Twitter: “I'll never go to Macy's again! I didn’t know they sold Donald Trump’s line.” To this, Trump answered: “I promise not to talk about your massive plastic surgeries that didn’t work.”
Michelle Malkin always thought Trump was a fake Conservative. On Twitter, he shared his opinion: “How does Michelle Malkin get a conservative platform? She is a dummy” and she answered back: “Trump just called me a dummy again for exposing him as a conservafraud. Keep digging, clown.” Although she also admitted she would rather give her vote to him instead of Clinton.
Jon Stewart impersonated Herman Cain on The Daily Show and then commented about two women who accused Cain of inappropriate physical behavior towards them. Two days later, Trump made a home video related to this Cain impersonation and asked using Cain's voice: “How come Jon Stewart gets away with a very, very racist rant about Herman Cain? I like Jon Stewart I hope they don’t take him off the air. But frankly, for this, they probably should, at least for a while.”
This writer for Saturday Night Live made some serious fun of Trump's hair on the annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner in 2012: “Donald Trump often appears on Fox, which is ironic, because a fox often appears on Donald Trump’s head,” which made Trump say: “That Seth Meyers is hosting the Emmy Awards is a total joke. He is very awkward with almost no talent. Marbles in his mouth!”
In his interview with Dr. Phil, he said this about Trump's attacks on Obama: “It’s all fun, it’s all a circus, it’s all a rodeo until it starts to smack of racism. And then it’s no longer fun.”
Robert De Niro
When Trump insisted on seeing Obama's birth documents, De Niro stated: “It’s like a big hustle; It’s like being a car salesman.” Trump replied: “I like his acting, but in terms of when I watch him doing interviews and various other things, we’re not dealing with Albert Einstein. He can say what he wants but the fact is that this guy has not revealed his birth certificate, a lot of people agree with me.”
After canceling a charity evening, Trump called out Jerry Seinfeld: “Despite its poor ratings, I didn’t cancel on you like you canceled on my son and St. Jude.” But Seinfeld answered: “I have no problem with him, I just can’t be with him. If God gave comedians the power to invent people, the first person we would invent is Donald Trump… God’s gift to comedy.”
During the Obama “bombshell” affair, she tweeted about Trump: “The man who has ruined New York seeks to ruin the nation. Show some respect, if not for the man, then for the office!” and Trump replied: “Now grotesque Bette Middler is into the Trump act – trying to become relevant again.”
Bill Cosby simply couldn't take Trump's political ambitions in 2011 seriously, and he said Trump should: “run or shut up.” Trump replied in Today: “If he doesn’t want me to run because he’s obviously an Obama fan, Sadly, he got more attention talking about me than he did on the merits of his own appearance … Maybe he is not as dumb as I thought.”
In 2013, Maher said he tried to bring Trump on his show: “And I’m glad he didn’t because, you know, he turned out to be, first of all, a terrible racist." After that, he made a joke that he offered Trump $5 million for "Trump’s choice - the Hair Club for Men at the Institute for Incorrigible Douchebaggery” if Trump proved he wasn't the son of a monkey. Trump released his birth certificate to the public, but then sued him!
These two rivals argued on Twitter and Trump said: “...Scotland’s garbage wind turbines that are destroying the country?...The UK is massively subsidizing Scotland’s wind turbines & the people don’t want them.” Sugar's response follows: “Scottish don’t want wind turbines...I think you have that wrong. The Scottish don’t want you!” and then Trump replied:“If you think ugly windmills are good for Scotland you are an even worse businessman than I thought…Without my show, you’d be nothing!”
Chris Matthews joked that he was “so glad” Hurricane Sandy had hit so Barack Obama could be re-elected: “How long do you think it’ll take for Donald Trump to take a crack at the President for engineering [the storm]?” Trump tweeted back: “Tweet me back if u think we should start a petition to fire @hardball_chris for his comments on Sandy & the death & destruction it caused.”
Trump didn't like the “Donald Trump: Why So Moody?” article and said: “The Huffington Post is such a loser–it will die just as AOL is dying, What a stupid deal AOL made to buy it!” then he turned his attention to Arianna Huffington, saying that she “is unattractive both inside and out. I fully understand why her former husband left her for a man - he made a good decision.” But then, Huff Post tweeted: “We’ve always wondered what’s under the bottom of the barrel. Please report. #flameout”
During the "bombshell" affair, Barbara Walters said to Trump on The View: “You’re making a fool of yourself. You’re not hurting Obama, you’re hurting Donald.” And Trump replied: “Barbara, unfortunately, you’ve missed the entire point of my announcement—you just don’t get it!”
After a Salon article which said Trump should avoid a campaign, Trump axed a personal note over the article: “Justin — I have no problem — I would, in fact, file early — you will be very surprised. Best wishes, Donald Trump”
Trump critiqued Vanity fair on Twitter and spoke of its worth: “Which, by the way, is billions too low.” This happened a month before he edited the Salon article.
When her show was canceled, Trump said: “Rosie fails at everything … I just don’t understand now, somebody else, some moron will come and hire her again to do something else but that will fail."
