Rosie O’Donnell Bullies Barron Trump Again
Using the Kathy Griffin fiasco to re-enter the fray, this comedian has learned nothing from her past insults
It was December of last year that comedian Rosie O’Donnell found herself apologizing to first lady Melania Trump for cyberbullying Mrs. Trump’s young son, Barron.
O’Donnell had shared a video to her vast social network; the video claimed the young boy had autism. Through additional social media posts, the comedian used this strange conspiracy theory as a platform to attack Donald Trump as a liar.
In other words, she used an innocent child as a pawn to attack a man she has long sparred with and disliked. Furthermore, she dissected a child’s mental health in public, though she has no medical background whatsoever. It was appalling, and she rightly apologized for it.
“i apologize to @MELANIATRUMP — i was insensitive in my RT — i am sorry for the pain i caused — it was not my intent — i am truly sorry,” wrote O’Donnell on Twitter.
O’Donnell had previously written on her official website, “Donald does not have the power to change the facts — to rewrite history so speak true — stand tall.”
Clearly she has learned nothing since then. Now the comedian is still using her strange obsession with Barron Trump to criticize the president.
"TMZ reports: Barron Trump was watching TV & saw @kathygriffin holding the severed head. He thought it was his dad. My heart is broken," television host Liz Wheeler wrote on Twitter on Wednesday.
She was responding to a viral picture from the now-infamous Kathy Griffin photo shoot. In the image, Griffin is shown holding the fake severed, bloody head of the president. LifeZette will not show it here.
O'Donnell must have felt that too much time had passed since she'd been an insufferable bully on Twitter — so she wrote in response: "Was he watching TMZ? do u think he saw anything about these 2 heroic men who died defending young girls? hatred promoted by his father?#USA."
The image posted by O'Donnell shows two victims of a recent Portland, Oregon, train stabbing; much of the press has mutated the stabbing into a political story. A drunk, mentally disturbed and racist man on the train was yelling about America and free speech when he pulled a knife and began attacking people. The action was condemned by the president himself, though some have said the man was a Trump supporter. Others have said the deranged man was a Bernie Sanders supporter.
Regardless, it was a terrible action and had nothing to do with anything except the man's mental health.
And to answer O'Donnell's question — no. Barron Trump likely didn't see those stories because he is an 11-year old child. And what does one story have to do with the other? O'Donnell thinks a couple of murders in Portland are politically motivated and are the responsibility of the president — and suddenly, Barron Trump's emotional reaction to seeing a likeness of his father's severed head on TV is meaningless?
O'Donnell is a bully, plain and simple. She's an opportunist who doesn't care whom she hurts when she makes her strange political points. Those points include everything from the catastrophe of accusing Barron Trump of being autistic to suggesting martial law to keep Donald Trump from taking office back in January.
Barron Trump is a child — but Rosie O'Donnell is the one who needs to grow up.
