The feud began after Trump went on a Twitter rant following the announcement that Obama had won the presidential race. As previously reported, the 66-year-old called Obama’s reelection “a total sham and a travesty.”

Shortly thereafter Williams read Trump’s tweets out on air saying: “Reluctant as we are to pass this along it nonetheless is – as we say – out there and getting an airing tonight so you might as well know about it.

“Donald Trump, who has driven well past the last exit to relevance and veered into something closer to irresponsible…is tweeting tonight.

“Here’s a sampling: ‘More votes equals a loss…revolution! This election is a total sham and a travesty. We are not a democracy…Disgusting injustice. The world is laughing at us’. And so on.

“So there you have it. THAT happened.”

Hours later Trump came out swinging on his Twitter page writing: “Brian – Thanks dummy – I picked up 70,000 Twitter followers yesterday alone. Cable news just passed you in the ratings.”

He also wrote: “Brian, if I’m ‘well past the last exit to relevance’ how come you spent so much time reading my tweets last night?”

On Wednesday Trump wrote on his Facebook page “Amazing, various celebrities were far harsher than me with political statements – but [the] media doesn’t care about them…”

The New Yorker is also sharing his opinion about the weather. Just more than a week after Hurricane Sandy pummeled the East Coast, he tweeted: “It’s freezing and snowing in New York – we need global warming!”
