Rosie O'Donnell Talks About Trump In Stand-Up Show

Actress Rosie O'Donnell has spoken out about President Donald Trump and his daughter Ivanka during a stand-up comedy show called "WTF Donny."

"The next time you or I want to make fun of Ivanka, I want you to carefully think -- with compassion -- about what ... [she] had to do to survive... being favorited by that cult leader who has the power to fool a nation, and she was his chosen child," O'Donnell said during the show, Vanity Fair reports. "It is not a fun, healthy or recoverable place to be."

She also spoke about how Donald Trump's supporters have treated her and her family since his election, according to Page Six.

"This is the second time I've been in public since he’s been elected because I go to the mall sometimes and Trump people go, 'Hey f*** you,'" she said. "The boys in public school in New Jersey said to my 14-year-old daughter the next day, 'Tell your mom I'm gonna grab your pussy.' It has affected my entire life and my entire family for a tremendous amount of years -- over a decade."

O'Donnell and Donald's feud began in 2006, when O'Donnell criticized Donald for his actions around the Miss USA beauty pageants, which he owned at the time.

"He annoys me on a multitude of levels," O'Donnell said on chat show "The View," Jezebel reports. "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."

Donald fired back on Twitter after O'Donnell announced she was engaged.

"I feel sorry for Rosie's new partner in love whose parents are devastated at the thought of their daughter being with Rosie -- a true loser," the future president tweeted.

Donald went on to call O'Donnell, "fat," "ugly," "a total train wreck," "disgusting" and "a slob."

He also threatened to sue her after "The View" segment, telling Entertainment Tonight, "Probably I'll sue her, it'll be fun. I'd like to take some money out of her fat-ass pockets."

"I'll most likely sue her for making those false statements -- and it'll be fun," he said to People. "Rosie's a loser. A real loser. I look forward to taking lots of money from my nice fat little Rosie."

The two never reconciled, and Donald even brought up the feud during a presidential debate against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

"Rosie O'Donnell, I said very tough things to her and I think everyone would agree that she deserves it and nobody feels sorry for her," said Donald during the debate.

In an interview with People in 2014, O'Donnell said that Donald's insults were "the most bullying I ever experienced in my life, including as a child."

"It was national, and it was sanctioned societally," she added. "Whether I deserved it is up to your own interpretation."
