Rosie O'Donnell is not taking Donald Trump's insults lying down after the Republican presidential candidate rekindled their longstanding feud during Monday night's debate with Hillary Clinton.

"Donald Trump bullying Rosie O'Donnell is justified... #WTF," O'Donnell tweeted on Tuesday along with a link to an article by The Advocate, chronicling the history of animosity between the 54-year-old comedian and the 70-year-old GOP candidate. "Donny -- hold ur nose -- cuz here comes the cold water."

Another tweet seemed to imply that Trump misstated facts about his original stance on the Iraq War.

"'I opposed the Iraq war ... there is evidence...' #WAKEUP #TRUMPisanILLUSION," she wrote.

The two have been at odds for the better part of a decade, and Trump dragged O'Donnell's name into his debate on Tuesday after Clinton mentioned his history of making misogynistic comments toward women.

"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.

Some of the "tough things" the former Apprentice host has called her include "dumb," "disgusting," and "fat, ugly face."

While O'Donnell originally tweeted that she was not watching the debates, she quickly caught wind of Trump bashing her.

"HE WILL NEVER BE PRESIDENT," O'Donnell tweeted Monday.

Their bad blood can be traced back to a 2006 segment on The View in which O'Donnell criticized Trump for being a "snake oil salesman."

"He annoys me on a multitude of levels," O'Donnell said at the time. "He's the moral authority? Left the first wife, had an affair. Left the second wife, had an affair. Had kids both times, but he's the moral compass for 20-year-olds in America?"

O'Donnell received support from peers and fans on social media following the debate. One message came from O'Donnell's A League of Their Own co-star, Madonna.

"Mess with my girl Rosie and you're messing with me!" Madonna tweeted. "Cruelty never made anyone a winner. #rebelhearts4ever."

O'Donnell later thanked all her supporters, writing, "To all those who reached out in love and kindness -- (and even memes) thank u."
