Rosie O’Donnell re-ignites old feud with Donald Trump

Former talk-show host Rosie O’Donnell and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump have never hid their animosity towards one another.

Last August, in the infamous GOP debate moderated by Fox News’ Megyn Kelly, when Trump was confronted about the language he used to describe women, he brought up his nemesis without hesitation.

“You call women you don’t like ‘fat pigs,’ ‘dogs,’ ‘slobs’ and ‘disgusting animals,” stated Kelly.

“Only Rosie O’Donnell,” he retorted.

At the time, O’Donnell’s response was lukewarm, but to the point:

Now, she’s taking a more upfront approach. Appearing on Alec Baldwin’s new game show, Match Game, O’Donnell came up with a new description of Trump.

“You know my feelings about that orange slug,” she said when asked about him.

This isn’t a recent phenomenon — Trump and O’Donnell have been hurling insults at one another since 2006.

It all began when Trump chose not to fire Miss USA Tara Conner, who admitted to using drugs, drinking as a minor and “sexual activities.”

Then a co-host on The View, O’Donnell called Trump a “snake-oil salesman on Little House on the Prairie,” then “[He] left the first wife — had an affair. [He] had kids both times, but he’s the moral compass for 20-year-olds in America. Donald, sit and spin, my friend.”

Trump fired back, calling her “a woman out of control”: “You can’t make false statements. Rosie will rue the words she said. I’ll most likely sue her for making those false statements — and it’ll be fun. Rosie’s a loser. A real loser. I look forward to taking lots of money from my nice fat little Rosie.”

From there, it spiralled, with one lobbed slur breeding another in response.

And so it goes. The only time the pair had a semblance of camaraderie was when O’Donnell suffered a heart attack in 2012.

It seems the bad blood between the two is still running, and as the American election gets closer, there will more than likely be further barbs from both camps.
