Promises, promises, promises. First Rosie O’Donnell swore she would move out of the country if Donald Trump won the 2016 election and now claims she may not survive his presidency. Does she actually think people care? Does she think all of America is wringing it’s hands over the possibility? If they did, she wouldn’t be unemployed. Well, she does have a role in a possible TV series but remember what happened in her former TV career on The View…twice.
The Political Insider reports that O’Donnell stated quite clearly that she would leave America if Trump were elected president.
O’Donnell has previously voiced her opinions on issues such as the Second Amendment, saying, “I think the Second Amendment is in the Constitution so that we can have muskets when the British people come over in 1800. I don’t think it’s in the Constitution to have assault weapons in the year 2000.”
According to Right Wing News, O’Donnell is not the only celebrity to have made her anti-Trump views known to the public. Cher, Samuel L. Jackson, and Jon Stewart have all publicly attacked Trump, who fired back at each of them over Twitter.
In her latest rant in an interview with W magazine, O’Donnell says she is fearful that she won’t survive the Trump presidency.
As s someone who’s always been outspoken and especially so about her politics, it’s been an unexpectedly quiet year for Rosie O’Donnell. Donald Trump has publicly feuded with and bullied O’Donnell since December 2006, when she called him a “snake oil salesman” during a segment on The View, on which she had a brief run as co-host.
For years, Trump called O’Donnell a “loser” and other epithets, bringing up O’Donnell’s appearance as fodder in the primary debates during the 2016 presidential campaign. For her part, O’Donnell has publicly criticized Trump and his politics for over a decade, responding in protest on Twitter and at the White House earlier this year.
After the election, Rosie was depressed and claimed she needed a therapist to help her get over it.
- “I was in shock. I was in pure unadulterated [shock], as if I had fallen through the ice on a lake; I was underneath the water, and I couldn’t even see the surface. It was a severe shock to my entire essence and my beliefs in the order in the world, and also the PTSD of having been an abused kid in a family.”
- “I did a lot of therapy.”
How is O’Donnell managing her emotions with Trump in the White House?
“It has taken me a full year to integrate the reality of him being a president in a way that I don’t come across as either so full of rage that no one can hear my words, or so sad that I can’t articulate the level of pain,” she told W. “It’s taken a year for me to get my equilibrium back, to come back up to the surface, to really go, ‘Okay, every Monday is the hope that this is the last week’ — and every Friday is a devastation.”
“There are people who tell me, ‘Oh, it’s going to be another year, another two years,’ and I seriously worry whether I personally will be able to live through [his presidency] and whether the nation will be able to live through it and survive,” O’Donnell added to the magazine.
“It’s a terrifying concept, on the brink of nuclear war with a madman in charge,” she said to W. “And the ineptitude — the impotence of people who should be able to stop him claiming they can’t — is absolutely infuriating.”
