Donald Trump's comments about the Civil War sent Twitter into overdrive on Monday morning with Chelsea Handler leading the charge against the commander-in-chief.

In an interview with Salena Zito for Sirius XM Politics radio, Trump questioned why the Civil War had to be fought in the first place, while calling President Andrew Jackson a "swashbuckler."

Handler was one of the biggest names to criticize the president for his comments:
