Rosie ODonnell Opens Up About Donald Trumps Hostility Towards Her

Source: Justjared

Rosie O’Donnell is speaking out about her longstanding feud with President Donald Trump. The 55-year-old comedian and actress appeared on Watch What Happens Live on Thursday night (November 9).

During the show, Andy Cohen asked Rosie what it was like to have the President of the United States criticize her.

“Donald Trump‘s opinion of me? Not really relevant. But when he got to be president, it was very trippy. It took me about six months to regain my equilibrium. I feel like I felt through the ice and I just was waiting to resurface,” she said.

“I told the truth about him ten years ago at a time when anyone could have find out those truths about him. But the media decided not to print it while he was running – not to talk about the fact that there was no equivalence between him and Hillary Clinton. They acted like he was a legitimate candidate, so I feel like mainstream media is really responsible.”

2. Rosie said "they[media] acted like he[Trump] was a legitimate candidate, so I feel like mainstream

media is really responsible.”

I totally agree with Rosie. The M$M has to take a big part of the responsibility for the orange incompetent being in the WH

6. More quotes from Rosie about Trump:

About why he never appeared on her show:

"Never, because I never liked him. If you're 55 and you grew up on Long Island, you know that he's a fake, a phony, and a fraud. It was no mystery to me. So I didn't have him on, ever. "

On what it's like to have the President criticize her physical appearance:

"Well not only my physical appearance... everything: my sexuality, my parenting, my wife, like he really went bat shit crazy.... I can say when he first did it, when he wasn't running for office, it was just this loser blowhard, like who really cared? And I don't really travel in his circles, it's not like I'm ever at Le Cirque, and I see some Trumpy. I'm a normal person, I go to the mall and the Cheesecake Factory. And so Donald Trump's opinion of me, not really relevant. But when he got to be President, it got very trippy. It took me about six months to regain my equilibrium. I feel like I felt through the ice and I just was waiting to resurface. But to have it done to you for nearly a decade makes the PTSD fairly intense."

On why Trump focused on her:

"I told the truth about him, at a time when everyone was afraid. And then I did the really offensive thing for him: I told the truth that he was bankrupt four times, that he's not a self-made man, that he got his daddy's money, and that he also notoriously ripped off all these private contractors, and all these family business all over Atlantic City went under because of his unethical ways. I told the truth about him ten years ago when anyone could have found out those truths about him, but the media decided not to print it while he was running, not to talk about the fact that there was no equivalence between him and Hillary Clinton, and they acted like he was a legitimate candidate. So I feel like the mainstream media is really responsible."

7. The above seems to explain why O'Donnell never appeared on SNL to impersonate Sean Spicer...

She would have been PERFECT in that role.

What a loss.

8. And until now I never understood why Trump was so obsessed with tearing down Rosie...

She had exposed him for being the fraud that he is, long ago, and that was something he just couldn't tolerate.

I don't blame her for going into virtual hiding for a while. Now I'm glad she's back and talking about it. Trump cannot make her disappear again.

11. This is what set Trump off on Rosie:



His obsession and hatred for her all stems from those 5-6 minutes ten years ago.

He's insane.

13. And it also opened up a way for the alt-right and Trump to make people distrust the media

When a few finally learned their lesson....too late....and flip flopped on Trump...they set themselves up to be called fake news.

Ironic though that they were, in a way, fake news BEFORE and DURING most of the campaigns simply because of the way they ignored the much more damaging proflie they could have painted on Trump, and conversely made a mountain out of an email account about Hillary. All this to try and even the field so they could run the story like an intense close game of Survivor, for the rating$.

17. And they STILL aren't reporting the WHOLE truth about him.

 

His predatory sexual assaults are still being covered up.

16. I feel like Rosie. the media is to blame for the false equivalence between HRC and Trump.

 

I don't even think that much of Roomie but she is right. "An apple is an apple."

20. Hes a morally bankrupt sociopath

And media treated him like a normal candidate. I agree with everything Rosie says.
