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.”
