Another day, another scandal. Just after (quasi-)apologizing to the Asian-American community for racially insensitive remarks, and before that, calling Kelly Ripa a homophobe, Rosie O’Donnell has already picked her next target: the Donald. While disagreeing with the Miss USA Pageant overseer’s decision to allow Tara Conner, the clearly troubled current tiara holder, to keep her post, The View co-host compared Trump to the “snake-oil salesman on Little House On The Prairie” and declared him “not a self-made man.” While on-air. And we all know how the Donald deals with public slights. To counterpunch, he’s now threatened to sue “[his] nice fat little Rosie,” calling her “a real loser.”
To mediate, producers of The View issued a statement that supports Rosie – and the Donald – declaring them both “high-spirited, opinionated people.” Way to wuss out, ABC. At least there’s some entertainment value in the spectacle of these two battling egos.
