Where does Fuckface von Clownstick come from?

@Kanew / Twitter

Fuckface von Clownstick was popularized in 2013 following a war of words between Donald Trump and comedian Jon Stewart. Trump accused comedian Jon Stewart of being a “phony” who used a stage name instead of his birth name, Jonathan Leibowitz because he was ashamed of his Jewish “heritage.”

Stewart fired back as host on The Daily Show, asking Trump why he wasn’t proud of his Fuckface von Clownstick heritage. Fuckface is a strong insult for a “fool” dating back to the 1960s, von is a signifier of nobility in German surnames and alludes to Trump’s German heritage, and clownstick a mocking nonce word.

Needless to say, Trump was not pleased by his new name and the many people on Twitter who began using it. He was quick to tell the world how he felt about it.

Ultimately, Stewart had the last word in a tweet poking fun at Trump’s perceived thin skin.

In November 2016, just day’s before the presidential election Trump ended up winning, Stewart gave a performance at the 10th annual Stand Up for Heroes charity event, where he told the story of the Fuckface von Clownstick fight between him and Trump.
