Rosie O'Donnell shared a lengthy poem on Thursday, detailing her emotional encounter
with Donald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump.
"I am tired," she writes. "This is the first time I have been out — out of bed really, to be honest — since the debate. I have been sleeping a lot. Depression clings to me. It’s hard to walk, to shower, to try, to care."
On Wednesday, O'Donnell shared on Twitter
that she randomly ran into Ivanka in New York City and was able to engage in a conversation with her "mother-to-mother."
"I see a couple," she continues. "Sitting close together in a small corner booth directly across from me. I watch them, stunned by her face and his calming charm, they were definitely a THEY."
"That is the most beautiful woman I have ever seen," O'Donnell writes. "I was captivated by her beauty, it blinded me so. I didn’t realize it was even her."
"I walked the five steps toward her table," she describes. "Introduced myself, she smiled genuinely, her husband was warm and gracious. I told her of my children, some truths about myself, my pain and shame. She was absurdly kind. 'I just wanted u to know,' I said in a shaky quiet voice."
"The entire encounter start to finish was four minutes max," she goes on. "I wrote a book once
about bashert, the concept of meant to be. It has comforted me on my darkest days when my inner voices scream 'you deserved it' -- as her father has, same as my own."
The poem comes two weeks after Trump's first presidential debate, in which he called out his longtime feud
with O'Donnell, after Clinton made reference to sexist and misogynistic comments he's reportedly made in the past.
Insisting that he's only made remarks about O'Donnell and no other women, Trump touted, "I think everybody would agree that she deserves it, and nobody feels sorry for her."
O'Donnell, along with several celebrities, responded to his comment. "The five [minutes] orange an** can't seem to get over," she tweeted at the time. "Tell the truth -- shame the Donald #ImWithHer."
