Donald Trump is not amused. After Jon Stewart said that the businessman's "real name" was "F---face Von Clownstick" on Wednesday's The Daily Show, Trump lashed out at Stewart and anyone who found the joke funny.

"Amazing how the haters & losers keep tweeting the name 'F**kface Von Clownstick' like they are so original & like no one else is doing it," Trump tweeted Friday.

Stewart's birth name joke on Wednesday actually traces back to a jab Trump made on April 24. "I promise you that I'm much smarter than Jonathan Leibowitz — I mean Jon Stewart @TheDailyShow. Who, by the way, is totally overrated," Trump tweeted then.

Trump's tweet of Stewart's birth name garnered many replies from followers, some of whom questioned whether the Celebrity Apprentice boss was anti-Semitic. Proving that he can dish it, but he can't take it, Trump was quite the grump when Stewart did his own name-reveal.

"What's funny about the name 'F**kface Von Clownstick' — it was not coined by Jon Leibowitz — he stole it from some moron on twitter," Trump wrote Friday. "If John [sic] Stewart is so above it all & legit, why did he change his name from Jonathan Leibowitz? He should be proud of his heritage," he continued.

"Jon Stewart @TheDailyShow is a total phony — he should cherish his past — not run from it," Trump said, adding, "As I've said many times before, Jon Stewart @TheDailyShow is highly overrated."

Stewart is not on Twitter, but the Daily Show's Twitter account tweeted: "Can't an overrated Jew have a complicated relationship with his dad without being accused of hiding hisheritage? #F---FaceVonClownstick."
