Rosie O’Donnell is a comedian and a very liberal personality who speaks her mind. Recently she suggested that White House Advisor and daughter to the President had an inappropriate relationship with the President. O’Donnell’s comments came on “The Michelangelo Signorile Show” and referenced Ivanka Trump’s attendance at the Japan G20 Summit. Rosie O’Donnell, a famous comedian, also discussed the prediction from President Trump that Ivanka Trump could rise to the presidency.
Signorile, the host of the program, requested that O’Donnell talk a bit about Ivanka Trump and what she and Donald Trump were doing. O’Donnell comedically responded that she did not know what Trump was doing with Ivanka. Signorile quickly broke into O’Donnell’s comment to say he meant politically, not personally.
O’Donnell went on to say that she believes Donald Trump has been doing “bad things” with Ivanka for a long time. O” Donnell stated that she felt a creepy incest feeling around Donald Trump and his children, and especially Ivanka, his daughter. O’Donnell did not mince words when she described the relationship between Trump and his daughter as incestuous.
O’Donnell spoke about Ivanka as she wore a shirt showing her support for Sen. Elizabeth Warren. O’Donnell went on to describe Ivanka as a non-intelligent, talentless, and non-powerful woman. O’Donnell did not mince works is saying it was very funny to think of Ivanka in any public service position. O’Donnell feels that no one in the Trump family has ever been in public service, they don’t care to be in public service, and she wondered why they should start being in public service now.
O’ Donnell and the President have feuded for many years. It all started when Trump was the host of “The Apprentice,” and O’Donnell disapproved of his swagger, braggadocio, and misogyny. Rosie O’Donnell has never held back on her feelings about Donald Trump, and at times O’Donnell is incredibly caustic. At the 2016 election GOP primary debate, specifically in Trump’s debate with Hilary Clinton, Trump listed O’Donnell as very vicious to him and believed she deserved whatever tough things he said about her.
O’Donnell has gone on to suggest that Donald Trump never spoke to his children and that people are afraid of him. O’Donnell did emphasize that she is not “afraid” of him, and will speak out about him and his family whenever she has the opportunity.
Rosie O’Donnell is not the first liberal or comedian to viciously criticize Ivanka Trump. Samantha Bee, the host of “Full Frontal” and a Canadian-American comedian, referred to Ivanka Trump as a feckless (expletive). This statement has led to backlash and criticism against Bee, and a demand that her show Full Frontal be canceled. She did apologize for crossing the line but was surprised how intense the backlash was to her comment.
