Donald Trump isn’t exactly known as the classiest man in America, but he’s stopped to a level that might be a new low, even for him.
On Twitter this morning, Trump attacked media mogul Arianna Huffington (of Huffington Post fame). He called her “unattractive inside and out” and, if that wasn’t bad enough, he said that he understands “why her former husband left her for a man.”
The tweet can be seen here, but, in case Trump decides to delete it, we have a screencap below:
It’s still unclear why Trump decided to attack Huffington. It’s likely because of a story that was reported on her website. In a subsequent post on Twitter, Trump attempted to clarify, saying “if you knew her and the phony Huffington Post, you would understand.” He promised more details would follow.
Huffington has yet to respond.
This isn’t the first time Trump has viscously attacked a prominent female media personality with his words. In 2006, he published an open letter to Martha Stewart in which he blamed her for the failure of her spin-off television show, The Apprentice: Martha Stewart. He later called her a “moron.”
