Donald Trump returned to his well-worn bully pulpit, this time to attack U.K. business mogul Alan Sugar, Trump's counterpart on the U.K.'s version of "The Apprentice." The verbal battle began when Donald Trump tweeted, "How can George Osborne reduce UK debt while spending billions to subsidize Scotland’s garbage wind turbines that are destroying the country?" Sugar disagreed with Trump's criticism of the politician, earning him a barrage of insults from Trump. As of yesterday, the battle rages on (Sugar's responses, seen here, don't appear on his Twitter feed):

While many might be tired of Trump's constant barrage of whiny tweets, at least CNN's Piers Morgan is amused:
