Donald Trump, ‘Modern Family’ Writer Clash on Twitter

While most of Hollywood is shut down for the Memorial Day weekend, Donald Trump and an Emmy-winning writer/producer on “Modern Family” are staying plenty busy on Twitter.

Danny Zuker, who also serves an exec producer on the hit ABC series, is one of TV’s most active creatives in the social media world and regularly takes shots at NBC’s “The Apprentice” and its over-zealous host (“Donald Trump hasn’t tweeted in almost 24 hours. I do hope something’s wrong.” Zuker recently wrote).

But now The Donald is fighting back.

“I never heard of Danny Zuker until his very dumb and endless tweets started pouring out of (his) insecure mind,” Trump tweeted Friday. He later defended “The Apprentice’s” ratings, saying “I know you don’t like to hear this Danny Zuker but the biggest nights of The Apprentice were far “bigger” than the biggest nights of Modern family.”

To which Zucker responded: “I just talked to an un named human decency pro and he said you were a narcissistic hateful uninformed ass clown.”

“Modern Family” creator Steve Levitan tried to put out the fire by saying “Calm down…I know several people dumber than him” but later deleted his tweet.

    Yeah, you left out the BEST stuff…. Zuker: “@realDonaldTrump Since you’re unable to manufacture decent comebacks maybe you could outsource the job to China. #LOL #Trumpelstiltskin.”

    Trump: “Lightweight @DannyZuker is too stupid to see that China (and others) is destroying the U.S. economically and our leaders are helpless! SAD.”

    Zuker: “@realDonaldTrump I’m def too stupid to see how manufacturing your s—ty clothes in China while you bloviate about them isn’t hypocritical.”

    Trump: “Just tried watching Modern Family – written by a moron, really boring. Writer has the mind of a very dumb and backward child. Sorry Danny!”

    Zuker: “@realDonaldTrump Since you’re unable to manufacture decent comebacks maybe you could outsource the job to China. #LOL #Trumpelstiltskin.”

    Trump: “Lightweight @DannyZuker is too stupid to see that China (and others) is destroying the U.S. economically and our leaders are helpless! SAD.”

    PICS: Celeb twitpics

    Zuker: “@realDonaldTrump Doesn’t like the show I work on but then we’ve never tested well with the racist, hypocritical, multiple bankruptcy demo.”

    Zuker: “Clearly the one thing @realDonaldTrump DIDN’T inherit from his daddy was a thesaurus. #Loser #Dummy #Lightweight.”

    Zuker: “Bye for now, @realDonaldTrump. I have a busy night of not grandstanding to put the wrong people to death in the Central Park Mugging case.”

    Doesn’t Donald Tacky have better things to do with his time? Go take a look in the mirror, clown, and realize how ridiculous you look with that orange face and that dead rodent on your head.

    Waste of space!

  4. One doesn`t have to know too many specific facts to evaluate this feud . But there probably is one glaring difference between the two of them ;Zucker doesn`t use a penal pump from the dollar store ! ! ! ! !!
