New York´s attorney general sued Donald Trump for $40 million Saturday, Aug. 24, 2015, saying the real estate mogul helped run a phony "Trump University" that promised to make students rich but instead steered them into expensive and mostly useless seminars, and even failed to deliver promised apprenticeships.

Let’s see. This is Thursday. Who’s the Donald raging at today?

Congrats, Jay Leno. It’s your turn in the barrel.

A little history: On Tuesday’s Tonight Show, Leno had on Bill Maher, who like everyone else, has feuded with Trump in the past. Only in Maher’s case, Trump followed up with a $5 million lawsuit because, on his previous appearance on Tonight, the comic demanded proof that Trump wasn’t sired by an orangutan. (Based on a certain similarity in hair color.) Suit later dropped.

Watch the video (below). It does seem like Leno was trying to get Maher fired up again about the Donald. Witness his gleeful handwringing.

Well, nobody makes a fool of Donald Trump! No siree, bob.

Taking to Twitter, the popsicle-hued impresario has fired vehemently back at his fellow NBC personality :

“I’ve always defended @jayleno but he never defends me. He’s not a loyal person & I now understand why everybody dumped him. Jay sucks!”

Trump wasn’t done. “I hear this moron @billmaher said nasty things about me (hair etc—boring) on the terminated @jayleno show,” read a followup tweet. “Stupid guy/bad ratings!”

People who live in Trump Towers shouldn’t throw stones. The Apprentice isn’t exactly lighting up the ratings board either, Donny.
