Rosie O'Donnell and Donald Trump Feud 2.0: Trump Says He Feels Sorry for Rosie's Fiancee
Rosie O’Donnell is nothing if not outspoken. Just this week the comedian whose new talk show The Rosie Show airs on the OWN network, got into a verbal scuffle with David Letterman after he called her a “tow trucker.” And now she’s in engaged in an all-out Twitter war with Donald Trump, who also insulted her. Rather than take the insults lying down O’Donnell has fired back at the big-mouthed billionaire and they’re in what can easily be called the Rosie / Trump feud 2.0.
O’Donnell and Trump’s first feud began when she was a cohost on The View’s 2006 – 07 season. That mini-war kicked off when O’Donnell called Trump a “snake-oil salesman” for refusing to fire troubled pageant queen Tara O’Connor. What ensued was a weeks-long public verbal slugfest. The pair has never made nice.
Feud 2.0 kicked off a few weeks ago when O’Donnell weighed in – with many other critics—on Trump’s announcement that he would moderated a GOP debate, according to The Huffington Post.
Trump responded to O'Donnell by attacking her and show calling it a “complete and total disaster.” Trump then Tweeted a video of himself blasting Rosie O’Donnell and MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell – who has taken Trump to task on his show The Last Word. The message that accompanied Trump’s video rant read "#trumpvlog Same last name, same bad ratings- @lawrence and @rosie....."
But leave it to Trump to hit below the belt, although O'Donnell did Tweet about his combover. Trump attacked O’Donnell’s recent engagement to Michelle Rounds in a Tweet that read, “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.”
Rosie Tweeted back “Wow, u r an ass in every way.”
