Jennifer Saunders and Dawn French had a few choice words to say about Donald Trump at Tuesday (6 June) night’s Glamour Awards

The pair launched individual attacks on the US president at the glitzy bash, with the former ‘Vicar Of Dibley’ star branding him a “weird tangerine cockhead of a man”. 

Jennifer, who hosted the awards ceremony at London’s Berkley Square Gardens, had been warning winners to keep their acceptance speeches short when she made a quip about Trump.

“Keep it beautiful and succinct,” she said. “I think there’s a word for the moment you run out words and go a bit gaga - it might be the only good thing to have been given to us by that great porky steamer from across the Atlantic.”

Referencing the term he used on Twitter last week that left many people scratching their heads, she continued: “It is of course the word ‘covfefe’.”

Taking to the stage to present the gong for Best Columnist to Caitlin Moran, Jennifer’s comedy partner Dawn also laid into Trump.

“You say ‘covfefe’, I say weird tangerine cockhead of a president… let’s call the whole thing off,” she said.

The pair were not the only ones mocking Trump at the ceremony though, as Amy Poehler also took aim at him during her acceptance speech for the Glamour Inspiration award. 

“In the US this year… is all about undeserved wins, so I’m the most glamorous, the most beautiful,” she joked.
