Supermodel Heidi Klum had a biting response to New York businessman and Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump's recent comments suggesting her beauty had waned. 

On Monday, days after Trump remarked that she was "no longer a 10," Klum posted a video online poking fun at the GOP candidate. The basic message seemed to be that, as a successful businesswoman, TV producer, mother of four and one of the highest-paid supermodels of all time, she's hardly fazed by Trump's critique. 

Trump's diss of Klum came during a recent interview with New York Times writer Maureen Dowd. When discussing his attitude toward women, Trump said, "Sometimes I do go a little bit far. Heidi Klum. Sadly, she's no longer a 10."

Among the women firing back at Trump for repeatedly judging women's looks was comedian Rosie O'Donnell, whom Trump criticized during the recent Republican presidential debate in Cleveland.

"Bigger than any specific people, there is a war on women that is happening in this country," O'Donnell said last week during SiriusXM's Just Jenny. "Women fought for equality in this country, and right now, politically, it's being taken away from us." 

In response to Trump suggesting that Fox News Channel host and GOP debate moderator Megyn Kelly was on her period during the televised Republican showdown, O'Donnell said, "I'd like to take my period blood that I no longer have and write, 'You're all a–holes.' I'd like to smear it all over some people's faces."

During the debate, Kelly confronted Trump for his past egregious remarks about women's appearances and suggested the presidential candidate was part of the so-called war on women.Trump proudly declared O'Donnell was the brunt of his comments about women being "fat pigs," "slobs" and "disgusting animals."
