Martha Stewart got in between President Donald Trump and Snoop Dogg, or rather portraits of them, at Frieze Art Fair at Randall’s Island Park in New York City Saturday.
“Was taking a pic of Trump and Snoop Dogg at Frieze and Martha Stewart walks up like this #america,” Twitter user Newlin Tillotson wrote, alongside a photo of Stewart flipping the bird at Trump’s portrait and giving a V sign to Snoop’s.
Stewart posted on Instagram a photo showing her giving V signs to both men, while promoting her and Snoop’s VH1 cooking show Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party and Sunday’s 2017 MTV Movie and TV Awards. The pic was taken by an executive at Stewart’s company Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, who shared a similar photo to the latter on Instagram and said it was a “politically correct” and “so much less interesting” version of another.
But Stewart and Trump had feuded way back in 2006, over his hit franchise The Apprentice. She had hosted a spinoff, The Apprentice spinoff, The Apprentice: Martha Stewart, which was canceled after one season. Stewart told Newsweek that “Having two ‘Apprentices’ was unfair to both of them, “but Donald really wanted to stay on.” She said there had been an idea for her to fire Trump on the air, which Mark Burnett confirmed, adding: “Thank God that didn’t happen.”
“It’s about time you started taking responsibility for your failed version of The Apprentice,” Trump responded to Stewart. “Your performance was terrible in that the show lacked mood, temperament and just about everything else a show needs for success. I knew it would fail as soon as I first saw it—and your low ratings bore me out.”
“Guess what? Things change and you can’t be moaning when you can’t change what happened,” she added. “Go with the flow!”
