Trump nemesis Rosie O’Donnell calls for martial law

Donald Trump ripped Rosie O’Donnell during the first Republican presidential debate in 2015, saying that she was the only woman about whom he had ever made disparaging comments.

Now, with less than 10 days until Trump takes the oath of office, O’Donnell says that she’d support “martial law” in order to delay his inauguration.

“FULLY SUPPORT IMPOSING MARTIAL LAW – DELAYING THE INAUGURATION – UNTIL TRUMP IS ‘CLEARED’ OF ALL CHARGES,” O’Donnell wrote in response to a Twitter user who suggested the U.S. military take control of the government until the president-elect can prove he  has no financial ties to Russia.



“SHOW UR YOUR TAXES – SHOW US YOUR TAXES – show us ur taxes – SHOW US UR TAXES,” O’Donnell tweeted. “WE THE PEOPLE WANT TO SEE THEM – SHOW US UR TAXES #Trump.”


At the August 2015 GOP debate, co-moderator Megyn Kelly opened with a question to Trump.

“You’ve called women you don’t like ‘fat pigs,’ ‘dogs,’ ‘slobs’ and ‘disgusting animals,’ ” Kelly said.

“Only Rosie O’Donnell,” Trump quipped.

Indeed, Trump had a long history of public feuds with O’Donnell, the former co-host of ABC’s “The View.”

In 2006, the real estate mogul attacked O’Donnell after she raised his past extramarital affairs and bankruptcies while mocking his decision to sideline a Miss USA contestant who admitted to drug and alcohol abuse.

“He’s the moral authority,” O’Donnell said. “Left the first wife, had an affair; left the second wife, had an affair; had kids both times, but he’s the moral compass for 20-year-olds in America.”

“Rosie is a loser,” Trump fired back on NBC’s “Today” show. “She’s been a loser for a long time.”

And O’Donnell has been a frequent target of Trump’s attacks on Twitter.




In 2012, though, Trump paused to wish O’Donnell a speedy recovery after she suffered a heart attack.


“Hey @Rosie–how is your recovery going?” he tweeted. “I hope you are doing well so we can start fighting again soon!”
