Golde State Warriors star Steph Curry sided with teammate Kevin Durant in voting to forego the NBA tradition of the winning team visiting the White House, due entirely to the fact that Donald Trump is president. "I don't want to go," Curry laughingly told a reporter of his decision, adding: "The things [Trump] has said, the things he hasn't said in the right times, we won't stand for it." When Trump caught wind, he issued a snarky tweet revoking Curry's invitation. "Going to the White House is considered a great honour for a championship team," sniped the president. "Stephen Curry is hesitating, therefore invitation is withdrawn!"
The rapper took a political stand in his music video for “BadBadNotGood (Nightfall Remix)” when he took on Trump.
Snoop explained to Billboard why he went off on the president, saying, “I feel like it’s a lot of people making cool records, having fun, partying, but nobody’s dealing with the real issue with this f**king clown as president, and that sh*t that we dealing with here, so I want to take time out to push pause on a party record and make one of these records for the time being.”
Trump himself responded to the music video via Twitter Wednesday, tweeting, "Can you imagine what the outcry would be if @SnoopDogg, failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama? Jail time!"
Trump's latest feud is with pop star Madonna. During an interview with Fox's Sean Hannity, the U.S. President slammed Madonna for her speech during the Women's March on Washington, where she told crowds that she considered "blowing up the White House." "Honestly, she's disgusting," Trump said. "I think she hurt herself very badly. I think she hurt that whole cause." He went on, "I thought what she said was disgraceful to our country."
When then-presidential candidate Donald Trump saw the women of 'The View' use words like "racist" and "liar" to describe him, he took to Twitter to slam the show. "@TheView T.V. show, which is failing so badly that it will soon be taken off thr air, is constantly asking me to go on. I TELL THEM "NO." He added: "Explain how the women on The View, which is a total disaster since the great Barbara Walters left, ever got their jobs. @abc is wasting time."

We doubt Pitbull will be staying at Donald Trump's hotels any more. The 34-year-old "Timber" singer sat down for an interview with Fusion's "America With Jorge Ramos" and expressed just how he felt about the 69-year-old business man. "Due to what's been said, I wouldn't be able to," Pitbull told Ramos. "I can't, just for the simple fact that you're talking about a culture that I ride, I die for. This culture is the only reason I'm having this conversation right now."
"Livin La Vida Loca" singer Ricky Martin has been added to the list after he showed his displeasure with Donald Trump's remarks about Mexicans. The 43-year-old tweeted, "“Mucho odio e ignorancia en tu corazón @realDonaldTrump. #LatinosUnidos,” which is translated to, "“There’s much hatred and ignorance in your heart @realDonaldTrump."
The Donald incurred the wrath of Neil when he used the Canadian rocker's iconic song "Rockin' in the Free World" as the musical backdrop for his presidential campaign announcement. Neil fired back saying he never granted permission for Trump to use the song. Trump blasted Young (who was photographed with the mogul during a meeting in which he sought funding from Trump for his Pono audio system) in a scathing tweet: "A few months ago Neil Young came to my office looking for $$ on an audio deal & called me last week to go to his concert. Wow!"

In 2011, Rihanna cancelled a performance at Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort at the last minute. Naturally, Trump was steamed when he saw that she was well enough the following day to perform at the NBA All-Star Game. "I thought that [Rihanna bailing] was insulting to everyone," said Trump in an interview. "But for Rihanna to go to the All-Star game and perform after she told us she was sick, that is just a lack of respect." Jennifer Hudson was brought in as a last-minute replacement, which was just fine with Trump, who added one last diss by claiming Hudson's "voice is better."
During an interview with Dr. Phil, Letterman discussed Trump dissing Obama as a "bad student" who wasn't qualified to go to Harvard. "It's all fun, it's all a circus, it's all a rodeo, until it starts to smack of racism," said Dave. "And then it's no longer fun." Trump cancelled an upcoming 'Late Show' appearance and wrote Letterman a personal note, stating he was "disappointed to hear the statements you made about me last night on your show that I was a 'racist.' ... In actuality, nothing could be further from the truth and there is nobody who is less of a racist than Donald Trump."
Robert De Niro
Long-time Democrat Robert De Niro obliquely discussed Trump in reference to his attacks on Obama. "I won't mention names, but there are certain people on the news in the last couple of weeks — what they're doing is crazy.... It's like a big hustle," said De Niro in an interview. "It's like being a car salesman. Don't go out there and say things unless you can back them up. How dare you? It's awful. Just go out there and speak and say these terrible things? ... It's crazy." Trump shot back by calling into 'Fox & Friends' so he could diss De Niro. "Well, he's not the brightest bulb on the planet," quipped Trump. "I've been watching him over the years and I like his acting, but you know, in terms of when I watch him doing interviews and various other things, we're not dealing with Albert Einstein."
Donald Trump does not like Bill Cosby, and let that be known during a 2015 press conference with TV critics while promoting 'The Celebrity Apprentice'. "I am not a Cosby fan," said Trump. "I don’t like him — for many reasons. I have a specific reason, and it wasn’t because of anything like you are thinking." In an earlier interview, Trump discussed Cosby being accused of sexual assault by numerous women. "I think he's probably guilty," said Trump. "If he’s innocent, he’s done one of the worst jobs I’ve ever seen of proving that he is innocent."

After Martha Stewart's 'Apprentice' spinoff tanked in the ratings, Trump placed the show's failure squarely on her shoulders. To vent his spleen, Trump wrote an open letter to the domestic diva. "Your performance was terrible in that the show lacked mood, temperament and just about everything else a show needs for success. I knew it would fail as soon as I first saw it – and your low ratings bore me out," he wrote. Martha responded with an open letter of her own, writing: "The letter is so mean-spirited and reckless that I almost can’t believe my long-time friend Donald Trump wrote it."

Donald Trump doesn't shy away from taking on big targets. During an earlier run for the GOP nomination (and long after it), Trump attacked the president, fixating on his alleged falsified birth certificate. Despite the president procuring the document, Trump remained unsatisfied. Weeks before the election he was still trying to get people interested in looking into Obama's college transcripts. Nobody is quite sure why.

Trump's long-standing feud with the talk show host (he once called her 'a big fat pig') is legendary. They really don't like each other. And their insults tend to be at a school yard level. Rosie has called Trump 'a snake oil salesman' and he has repeatedly called her a loser. 'Rosie fails at everything.' is typical of The Donald's insights on the topic of Rosie. Recently, though, Trump has made attempts to make nice with O'Donnell.
Bill Maher once jokingly offered Donald Trump $5 million if he could prove he wasn't the result of his mother having sex with an orangutan. It was a not-so-sly dig over Trump's obsession with the president's birth certificate. Only Trump didn't get the joke. He offered up his birth certificate and sued Maher for the $5 million. Maher countered - quite rightly - that Trump's birth certificate was a copy, not the original, and thus no proof. The suit was eventually dropped.

After Bette Midler accused Trump of ruining New York on Twitter (and made fun of his hair), The Donald fought back the only way he knows how - dirty - calling her 'ugly', 'grotesque', and mocking her singing and career. 'I haven't heard her name in years,' was one of his nicer comments.

Trump took exception to Jon Stewart's mocking of GOP candidate Herman Cain, calling it racist and questioning how Stewart is allowed to get away with such an offence. Stewart's reply oozed sarcasm. "This one really hurts because of how much I respect Donald Trump." Well, that's nice. No, wait. He's not serious, is he?

In recent years, Trump has displayed a penchant for the lowest common denominator when it comes to insults. When the argument gets rough, he tends to insult a person's looks or personal life. A good example of this was his feud with lefty media mogul Arianna Huffington. In a possible response to a negative 2012 article in the Huffington Post, Trump launched an attack on Huffington herself, in which he stated she was 'unattractive both inside and out'. He went on to state that he understood why Huffington's husband had left her for another man. Yikes.
The Amazing Race

Trump has long had a bee in his bonnet over this reality show. It drives Trump crazy that this competition continually wins Best Reality Show at the annual Emmy Awards over his Celebrity Apprentice. In 2010, he chalked up The Amazing Race's wins to their ability to 'politic the Emmys'. He went on to blame the award show's so-called decline in ratings on their poor choices in winners. "Instead of shows that deserve it, they pick The Amazing Race," he ranted.
Cher wasn't a fan of Trump's continued attack on President Obama over his birth certificate, dubbing it 'racist'. She encouraged Macy's department store to dump Trump's line of clothing. In response, Trump dove into the Twitter gutter, calling Cher 'lonely', 'unhappy', and 'miserable'.
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson

Trump doesn't mind lending his Twitter opinions to more tabloid-like topics. After estranged Twilight couple Stewart and Pattinson were seen together again, Trump advised Pattinson against taking Stewart back. "She cheated on him like a dog and will do it again,' he declared.
Recently, Trump and Modern Family writer Danny Zuker have really gotten into a fun Twitter war. When Trump stated his worry over America's continued relationship with China, Zuker countered with a pic of a Trump shirt bearing an obvious Made In China tag. Oh snap! The conversation escalated as Trump went on to attack the top-rated show, calling it 'really boring' and 'written by a moron'.

Trump should know better than to take on comics in a word war. After Seinfeld cancelled out on a charity gig with Trump's son Eric, The Donald issued a public letter. He pointed out that he showed up for a guest appearance on Jerry's failed show The Marriage Ref. "I didn't cancel on you like you cancelled on my son and St. Jude. I only wish I did," he wrote. Seinfeld did not reply directly, but has referred to Trump as 'God's gift to comedy'.
Well, you didn't expect the late-night sketch show to stop hitting up this golden goose once a president was nominated, did you? Alec Baldwin's Trump kicked the episode off, reneging on all his campaign promises upon realizing how much work they would be to implement. Trump was quick to react, tweeting, "It is a totally one-sided, biased show - nothing funny at all. Equal time for us?"
Baldwin's rejoinder? "Equal time? Election is over. There is no more equal time," writes Baldwin. "Now u try 2 b Pres + ppl respond. That's pretty much it."
For the first time ever, a theatre was the site of drama. Shocking as that was, the real shocker is that the drama came during the curtain call. With Vice-President-Elect Mike Pence in attendance, actor Brandon Victor Dixon addressed him on behalf of the cast. "We welcome you, and we truly thank you for joining us here at 'Hamilton: An American Musical' — we really do. We are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us, our planet, our children, our parents, or defend us and uphold our inalienable rights, sir. But we truly hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values, and work on behalf of all of us." Like any dignified soon-to-be president, Trump took to Twitter and demanded an apology. No one is holding their breath.
