Rosie O'Donnell’s show on OWN has been canceled, and Donald Trump is predictably tiptoeing on its grave.
Wait, did we say tiptoeing? More like tap dancing. Nay, clogging. Heck, if there were more Donald Trumps in the world, Trump would be doing a full-on Rockettes kick line with himselves to mark the occasion of ‘The Rosie Show’s’ demise.
“Frankly, that was just going to happen,” Trump said Monday morning via phone on ‘Fox & Friends, after blasting O'Donnell first on Twitter. “I knew it immediately when they announced it. Rosie fails at everything. She had a variety show, it failed. I mean, she — I don’t understand now, somebody else, some moron will come and hire her again to do something else and that will fail.
‘At some point, let her rest. Let her go away. She’ll never make it and I’ve said it for years. She’ll never make it! She must have a very good agent.’
And he didn’t let the Twitter opportunity get away either, tweeting a link to mention of his ‘F&F’ interview and wondering in an extended tweet, ‘Rosie O'Donnell has failed again. Her ratings were abysmal and Oprah cancelled her on Friday night. When will media executives learn that Rosie just hasn’t got it.’
The two have been at it back and forth for years, with Trump picking on the new show late last year. In 2006, O'Donnell lashed out and Trump for not firing then-Miss USA Tara Connor. He said he’d started it by bagging on her over her ‘failed magazine,’ which she shuttered in 2002, and told Anderson Cooper at the time that she was ‘not a smart person,’ ‘a stone cold loser,’ ‘a bully’ and a ‘very unattractive woman both inside and out.’
So tell us, Donald, how do you really feel? And tell us, readers, how do you really feel about Rosie?
