Donald Trump Uses Twitter To Target Documentary Filmmaker Who Made Critical Movie About One Of His Golf Courses

In the past few weeks, Donald Trump has taken to Twitter with a vengeance.
During the days leading up to the presidential election, the billionaire lashed out at everybody, from Mark Cuban to Alex Rodriguez, to Chrysler corporation. Then, during election night, he publicly called out NBC news anchor Brian Williams and, of course, his No. 1 target, Barack Obama.
With a fire still burning in his heart, Trump today chose to attack Anthony Baxter, the maker of documentary “You've Been Trumped” --a film which chronicles a group of Scottish's homeowners attempt to stop Trump from turning a swath of the country's wilderness into a golf resort.
The documentary has received rave reviews from critics and won numerous awards, including the Director's Choice Award at the Sedona Film Festival. New York Magazine called it a “riveting exposé”and The Guardian remarked that the film was “terrific, stirring stuff.”
Trump, as he informed Baxter on Twitter, wasn't so fond of the film, however.
“Your documentary works better than any sleeping pill—in fact that may be your only way to make money with this recycled garbage,” Trump tweeted at Anthony Baxter.
“Dummy,thanks for increasing awareness of my big golf project in Aberdeen—sales are thru the roof & Aberdeen seeing big benefits,” he said a few messages later.
In all, Trump directed six angry Tweets at Baxter in a one-hour span. After insulting the film and hyping his own golf course, Trump questioned Baxter about how he obtained some of the footage used in “You've Been Trumped.”
Baxter did not respond on Twitter to “The Donald's” insults and accusations
A few minutes after unleashing his last angry comments directed at Baxter, Trump moved on to condole pop star Cyndi Lauper, whose uncle died in Hurricane Sandy.
“Condolences on the passing of your uncle, and best wishes,” Trump tweeted.
