Donald Trump Pounces on Rosie O’Donnell
There is absolutely no love lost between Donald Trump and Rosie O’Donnell, as Trump wasted no time to pounce on down and out O’Donnell as soon as he got wind of the latter’s show being cancelled on Oprah’s network.
If you will recall, the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) announced on Friday that Rosie O’Donnell would tape her final episode this Tuesday because the show, which debuted in October, averaged only 497,000 viewers.
On Monday, Trump happily (I bet he really was) tweeted, “Rosie O’Donnell has failed again. Her ratings were abysmal and Oprah cancelled her on Friday night. When will media executives learn that Rosie just hasn’t got it.”
Trump even continued his rant on Monday’s Fox and Friends. “Frankly, [the cancellation] was just going to happen. I knew it immediately when they announced it. Rosie fails at everything. … Some moron will come and hire her again to do something else and that will fail. At some point, let her rest. Let her go away.”
O’Donnell and Trump have been feuding since 2006, when O’Donnell openly and with much gusto criticized Trump on ‘The View’ for not dethroning then Miss USA Tara Conner for alleged drug use.Get free updates directly to your e-mail from Showbiz Renegade.
