Rosie O'Donnell Continues to Strike Back at Donald Trump After Debate Bashing
By Raphael Chestang
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."
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.
"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.
