Comedian and television personality Rosie O'Donnell took to Twitter on Christmas Day to give House Speaker Paul Ryan a piece of her mind.

The 55-year-old actress didn't appear to have much mercy on Ryan -- not even on Christmas. O'Donnell took to Twitter on Dec. 25 to deliver a message to him, the Daily Mail reported.

"paul ryan - don't talk about Jesus after what u just did to our nation - u will go straight to hell u screwed up fake altar boy," O'Donnell wrote, adding the hashtag "#JUDASmuch."

It appears O'Donnell was responding to a tweet Ryan shared on Dec. 23, in which he posted a video of a speech he gave in Washington, D.C., in which he spoke about Christmas.

"At the end of each year, no matter how short -- or long -- it may feel, there is always Christmas," Ryan tweeted. "Waiting for us is that sense of wonder the shepherds felt when the angels appeared in the night sky to herald the birth of a Savior."

This isn't the first time O'Donnel has taken a jab at Ryan via Twitter. She previously tweeted "f**k u" at the politician in January. More recently, she clashed with Conservative media personality Ben Shapiro after tweeting, "Suck my d**k Ben."

O'Donnell continued her roast of the political commentator, saying Shapiro looked like a "high school junior." Shapiro responded by reporting her tweet.

"Just reported [Rosie] for targeted harassment, mainly to see if Twitter does indeed have a double standard," Shapiro tweeted on Dec. 22. "Everyone knows if Rosie were conservative, Twitter would suspend her in a hot second. So, Twitter, put your money where your mouth is."

Shapiro also added the hashtag "#MeToo" to that tweet.

When one user questioned his stance on free speech, Shapiro insisted that the exercise was meant to point out the social media platform's inconsistency.

"It's an attempt to clarify Twitter's standards. I don't actually want them to ban or suspend Rosie," Shapiro explained. "I want them to stop applying their own rules inconsistently."

A few hours later, Shapiro shared a screenshot of an email he received from Twitter administrators.

"Surprise of surprises, Twitter says that [Rosie's] tweets were not in fact abusive in any way under their rules," Shapiro wrote. "Good to know."

But on Dec. 25, Twitter appeared to reverse its stance on O'Donnell's tweet.

"Well, looks like Twitter had some second thoughts about Rosie's obscene tweets," Shapiro wrote, attaching a screenshot of another email from Twitter.

The Twitter battle between O'Donnell and Shapiro started after the political commentator blasted the actress for saying she would pay Sens. Susan Collins and Jeff Flake $2 million if they voted against the Republican tax reform bill.
