Rosie O'Donnell Under Fire For Melania Trump Comments

| by Jonathan Constante

Rosie O'Donnell's latest comments about First Lady Melania Trump are sparking controversy.

O'Donnell took to Twitter on March 21 to retweet an image of President Donald Trump sitting at a table with his wife Melania, Inquistr reported. The image was captioned, "#TheNewsIn4Words Unhappily Married to Don."

“She looks miserable,” another user commented on the photo.

“Yes -- and I find it so sad -- truly -- and his kids -- i keep thinking of the madoff saga,” O'Donnell responded.

This isn't the first time O'Donnell's comments about the president's family landed her in hot water. The comedian had previously shared a YouTube video that suggested Trump's 10-year-old son, Barron, could have autism.

The first lady's attorney, Charles Harder, ordered for the individual who uploaded the video to YouTube to remove it and issue a public apology. Harder added that O'Donnell sharing the video made the rumors worse.

O'Donnell took to Twitter that time, as well, to apologize to Melania after hearing about how the rumors had impacted her.

“I apologize to [Melania] -- i was insensitive in my RT -- i am sorry for the pain i caused -- it was not my intent -- i am truly sorry," O'Donnell tweeted.

The feud between Donald and O’Donnell has been going on for years, although the president has not mentioned her as much lately.

During his presidential campaign, Fox News reporter Megyn Kelly asked him a question about derogatory statements he's made about women in the past, The Washington Post reported.

"Mr. Trump, one of the things people love about you is you speak your mind and you don't use a politician's filter," Kelly said during one of the debates. "However, that is not without its downsides, in particular, when it comes to women. You've called women you don't like 'fat pigs,' 'dogs,' 'slobs' and 'disgusting animals.'"

Donald then interrupted Kelly's question and said, "Only Rosie O’Donnell."

Despite the president's rocky relationship with O'Donnell, reports about Melania being unhappy with her husband's newly acquired position of power began long before the comedian's retweet.

In February, Us Weekly reported that Melania was less than thrilled with being the first lady.

“Melania is unhappy with how her life ended up,” a source close to the family told Us Weekly. “She is miserable.”

“Don’t let her smile in those photos fool you,” the source added. “She hates this.”

Another source dispelled those rumors, saying that Melania “is very happy with her life and supporting her husband and family.”
