The rift between Donald Trump
and Martha Stewart
is escalating after the lifestyle guru blasted the property mogul as "juvenile, evil, unethical and immoral." The estranged pals have been arguing since Stewart told Newsweek magazine her show The Apprentice: Martha Stewart suffered poor ratings
because Trump failed to step down from his original reality TV program The Apprentice
Trump fired back
, declaring Stewart needs to take responsibility for the failure of her spin-off and accused her of lying about plans by producers NBC for the cookery queen to "fire" him at the beginning of her series. After Stewart read a letter from Trump, detailing his disdain for her show and the reason it failed, she took the opportunity to attack him on her daughter Alexis' radio show yesterday.
Stewart said, "He sent the letter to the press before he sent it to me." When Alexis declared, "A normal businessman doesn't really behave this way," and described Trump as being "busy riding around town seeing if your name is polished properly on the front of all the buildings you don't really own," Stewart replied, "Donald is not a normal businessman. Remember Donald was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. He's a spoiled brat."
Alexis went on to attack Trump even further, expressing her sympathy for his daughter Ivanka, saying, "I feel sorry for her. She seems like a nice girl. It must be hard to have such a freak for a father," and also suggesting he shove a silver spoon "up his a*s".
In response, Trump says, "Nice. What a crude statement. But then Alexis is used to making crude statements."
