Rosie O’Donnell threatens Trump’s children in angry online rant
mccauleys-corner / CCL
Rosie O’Donnell just elevated her feud with President Donald Trump into the stratosphere.
Rather than debating the president’s recent remarks on social media, O’Donnell descended into name-calling and threats — a common technique on the Left. She delivered her messages in a manic, childlike scrawl and as a topper threatened the president’s family.
Last weekend was a busy news cycle, including a guilty plea offered by Gen. Michael Flynn, Trump’s former national security advisor, and ABC News’ false and devastating report on Flynn’s plea agreement.
All of this provided fertile ground for Trump’s observations on Twitter, which drove O’Donnell into a frenzy.
But enough with the descriptions. A picture, as they say, is worth a thousand words, so here goes. For example, when Trump tweeted:
I never asked Comey to stop investigating Flynn. Just more Fake News covering another Comey lie!
yes – ya did donald #fakeEVERYTHING #LiarInChief #comeyROCKS #BobbyM4eva
Crazy, huh? But she wasn’t finished. The president observed that the markets tanked and the price of gold spiked after ABC News falsely reported that candidate Trump told Flynn to send out feelers to the Kremlin. In reaction, the president suggested:
People who lost money when the Stock Market went down 350 points based on the False and Dishonest reporting of Brian Ross of @ABC News (he has been suspended), should consider hiring a lawyer and suing ABC for the damages this bad reporting has caused – many millions of dollars!
That apparently drove the comedienne right up the wall. O’Donnell responded:
good morning traitor trump – gonna tap out soon donnie? arm bar is getting tight … keep tweeting moron #RussiaGate
News outlets also reported that special counsel Robert Mueller quietly dismissed a hyper-partisan anti-Trump, pro-Hillary Clinton agent from his team. Mueller is investigating alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials, a process that began more than a year ago by the FBI without any charges yet made against Trump.
After years of Comey, with the phony and dishonest Clinton investigation (and more), running the FBI, its reputation is in Tatters – worst in History! But fear not, we will bring it back to greatness.
O’Donnell again took issue, replying:
jim comey has lived a life of service and dedication -he is admired – unlike u don the con #jailAWAITS
One step into the brink
O’Donnell then crossed a line that has been sacred in American politics — bringing a political figure’s family into the fray. There’s an unwritten rule that you can criticize the politician all you like, but leave their family out of it.
The most recent instance of that rule being broken occurred when a video of Malia Obama, daughter of former-President Barack Obama, surfaced last month depicting her smoking and kissing a boy. When Malia was criticized, she received support from an unexpected quarter — first daughter Ivanka Trump, who said kids should be off limits.
O’Donnell must have missed the message — either that or she didn’t care. She tweeted:
they r coming for u dipshit and ur kids … ur days r numbered – u fool nobody – u tool – go to hell – we r not afraid of u #TrumpTreason
O’Donnell has previously gone after Trump’s youngest son, 11-year-old Barron Trump. Most recently, her attacks involved Trump’s reaction to the depiction of Kathy Griffin holding aloft his father’s bloody, decapitated head.
Last year she also claimed that Barron Trump suffered from autism. She later apologized for that one.
The Trump-O’Donnell feud has been going on for more than a decade. It appeared to have its origins in December of 2006 when he declined to fire then-Miss Teen USA Sarah Conner for allegations of underage drinking and sexual activity.
At that time the future president said he believed in “second chances.” O’Donnell apparently did not and criticized his decision.
It would have been fine had she left it at that. But she followed up with a personal attack, claiming that Trump was “not a self-made man” but a “snake-oil salesman on Little House On The Prairie.”
And this time, just like then, she took it a step too far.
