Rosie O’Donnall blasts Donald Trump as an ‘uneducated bully, serial liar and a misogynist’
Rosie O’Donnell is blasting Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump as ‘the worst representation of what the United States is or could be.’
‘He is everything we should reject as a nation,’ the out actress and comic says in an interview with WABC Radio’s Election Central with Rita Cosby. ‘He’s not even qualified to run a game show.’
O’Donnell, who has had a public feud with Trump dating back nearly a decade, also described the mogul as an ‘uneducated bully, serial liar and a misogynist’ and ‘notoriously an unethical businessman.’
She described his surprisingly successful presidential run this way: ‘I think it’s an epic battle worthy of a new Star Wars movie. You have to decide. Are you going to be with the force or are you going to be on the dark side? It’s your choice. Just like Harry Potter, he’s like Lord Voldemort. You know stay away from the dementor.’
During the first Republican presidential debate in August, moderator Megyn Kelly asked Trump about his various insults aimed at women over the years.
‘You’ve called women you don’t like fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals,’ Kelly began before being interrupted by Trump who said: ‘Only Rosie O’Donnell.’
O’Donnell says she was ‘surprised’ he brought her up in the election ‘as a punchline with impunity.’
‘He’s like a bully for the mafia, like he thinks that he can shut you up, like he’s Tony Soprano,’ she says.
But she has no regrets for taking him on over the years despite the personal insults Trump has hurled her way.
‘I don’t regret everything that’s happened since because if anything, it’s a great way to show the moral character of this human being who’s running for president.’
