Megyn Kelly sparked a Twitter feud with Sarah Silverman on Tuesday when she criticized the comedian for sending President Trump an expletive-laced tweet.

Silverman’s initial tweet was a response to Trump, who took to Twitter on Sunday to slam Sen. Amy Klobuchar, who announced that she’s running for president in 2020. In his tweet, Trump mocked one of her key talking points: the fight against climate change.

Silverman tore into the president the next day with her NSFW reply:No point in explaining how mind blowingly stupid this tweet is so I’m just gonna go with F*** YOU, and also add that you are a smelly p**** hole with b**** that touch water. Eat s***, you greedy t***.”

The profanities evidently didn’t impress Kelly, who shot back, “This woman [Silverman] wants to star in children’s movies produced by Disney. (And just did, in Ralph Breaks the Internet.)”

Silverman didn’t take long to respond — throwing in a tongue-in-cheek plug of her movie in the process.

Many Silverman fans spoke out in defense of the comedian, mocking Kelly’s departure from NBC and pointing out provocative comedians — including Robin Williams and Denis Leary — who have voiced animated characters.

But others agreed with Kelly. David Wohl, a conservative political commentator and campaign surrogate for Trump, bashed Silverman by commenting on her child-free status and pointing out that she once wore blackface for a comedy sketch.

Silverman responded directly to Wohl’s insults.
