Billionaire real-estate tycoon Donald Trump turned to Twitter Monday night to blast Arianna Huffington.
Trump initially slammed The Huffington Post, contending the website is more "dishonest" than Rolling Stone.
As dishonest as @RollingStone is I say @HuffingtonPost is worse. Neither has much money - sue them and put them out of business!— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump) 1428372054.0
He then made things personal.
"How much money is the extremely unattractive (both inside and out) Arianna Huffington paying her poor ex-hubby for the use of his name?" Trump asked on Twitter.

Others went after Trump's own looks.

Some attacked him on financial grounds.
@realDonaldTrump how many times have you filed bankruptcy? Oh yeah, 5.— Ryan Hansen (@Ryan Hansen) 1428373364.0
.@realDonaldTrump But what if they declare bankruptcy and then come back, inexplicably, despite demonstrated incompetence? Oh! Oh. Awkward.— FinlandOrMaybeRussiaHat (@FinlandOrMaybeRussiaHat) 1428372933.0
And finally, others cited Trump's aggressive personality as a reason not to vote for him for president.
