I promise you that I'm much smarter than Jonathan Leibowitz – I mean Jon Stewart @TheDailyShow. Who, by the way, is totally overrated.

@MaxVayner Stewart (?) wouldn't have even a little chance in a debate with me. He's totally overrated – not fast enough or smart enough!

And again…What does he have against Jon?
While Jon Stewart is a joke, not very bright and totally overrated, some losers and haters will miss him & his dumb clown humor. Too bad!

Marco Rubio is a total lightweight who I wouldn’t hire to run one of my smaller companies – a highly overrated politician!

Barack Obama is not who you think he is. Most overrated politician in US history.

No matter what Bill Clinton says and no matter how well he says it, the phony media will exclaim it to be incredible. Highly overrated!

The cast of Hamilton (what did they do wrong?!)
The cast and producers of Hamilton, which I hear is highly overrated, should immediately apologize to Mike Pence for their terrible behavior

And most recently, Meryl Streep.
Meryl Streep, one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood, doesn't know me but attacked last night at the Golden Globes. She is a…..

Just to debrief, Donald has called Megyn Kelly, Jerry Seinfeld, Barack Obama, Marco Rubio, George Will, Jon Stewart, Bill Clinton, Charles Krauthammer, the cast of Hamilton, and Meryl Streep “overrated.” That’s officially the longest list in history. It appears he’s mostly targeted politicians and comedians, two categories of people who pride themselves on being outspoke and honest.
Mere hours after seeing Meryl’s Golden Globes speech on television, Donald took to Twitter to fire shots of his own. Besides calling the actress overrated, we think it’s hilarious that he’s bashing her for not knowing him personally. How well do you think Donald knows the Hamilton cast? Or Jerry? Probably not at all, and yet, he’s happy to discredit their talents on social media. It’s like calling the kettle black!
HollywoodLifers, do you agree with Donald — are any of these celebs overrated?
