Oh, how funny. Celebrities acting all tough and stuff on Twitter when no one gives a d*mn. Rosie should be thanking Trump. We forgot she existed until he came along.
Rosie O’Donnell has hit back at Donald Trump – calling him an ‘orange anus’ – after he dragged her name into the presidential debate Monday.
When Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton accused Trump of sexism during the debate at Hofstra University, New York, he took the opportunity to take another jab at his long-term nemesis O’Donnell.
‘This is a man who has called women pigs, slobs and dogs,’ Clinton said – a similar challenge to one Trump faced more than a year ago from Fox News Channel anchor Megyn Kelly at the first GOP primary debate.
Clinton did not mention O’Donnell but Trump responded using her name, implying she was the only woman he’d ever verbally attacked.
‘Somebody who’s been very vicious to me, Rosie O’Donnell – I said very tough things to her. And I think everybody would agree that she deserves it, and nobody feels sorry for her,’ Trump said.
O’Donnell responded via Twitter saying ‘he will never be President’ before tweeting a link to a clip from The View in 2006 that shows her mocking Trump, a TV moment that is believed to be the origin of their feud.
‘The 5 mins orange anus can’t seem to get over — tell the truth – shame the donald [sic],’ she wrote alongside it.
On The View in 2006, the comedian said of Trump: ‘He annoys me on a multitude of levels. He is the moral authority – left his first wife had an affair, left his second wife had an affair, had kids both times – but he is the moral compass for twenty year olds in America.
‘Donald sit and spin my friend,’ she said.
Trump called her a ‘loser’ after the segment in which she questioned his decision to not fire the then Miss USA Tara Conner over her reported drug use.
The feud erupted again in 2011 when O’Donnell announced she was engaged to marry her now ex-wife Michelle Rounds and Trump tweeted; ‘I feel sorry for Rosie ‘s new partner in love whose parents are devastated at the thought of their daughter being with @Rosie–a true loser.’
She responded on Twitter by calling him a ‘real a**.’
