don-cheadle-e1472481792463Don Cheadle did not mince words in his Twitter attack on Donald Trump Saturday and Sunday. In case you missed it, the GOP candidate for President Tweeted his condolences to Dwayne Wade, whose cousin was shot and killed in Chicago while she was on a walk with her baby.

Then, he started responding to some of his haters individually:

Danny Woodburn, for the win:
