Donald Trump insults Arianna Huffington by bringing up her gay ex-husband on Twitter

'I fully understand why her former husband left her for a man'

Donald Trump insults Arianna Huffington by bringing up her gay ex-husband on Twitter
28 August 2012

Real estate mogul Donald Trump lashed out at online media mogul Arianna Huffington on Tuesday (28 August) calling her unattractive and bringing up her gay ex-husband.

Trump wrote in Twitter: ‘@ariannahuffis unattractive both inside and out. I fully understand why her former husband left her for a man – he made a good decision.’

Michael Huffington was a one-term US congressman from California who in 1994 spent $28 million to try and unseat incumbent US Senator Dianne Feinstein. He and the former Arianna Stassinopoulos were married from 1986 to 1997 and have two children. He came out as bisexual a year after their divorce.

The founder of The Huffington Post has not responded to Trump’s insult.

The man these days best known for NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice has clashed with powerful women before.

He frequently feuded with Rosie O’Donnell in the past with similarly-toned personal insults but last week, after learning O’Donnell had suffered a heart attack, tweeted: ‘@Rosie, get better fast. I’m starting to miss you!’
