Rosie O'Donnell Blasts 'Orange Anus' Donald Trump After His Attack on Her During Debate

Comedian Rosie O’Donnell hit back at Republican presidential nominee and former reality TV star Donald Trump after he lashed out at her during Monday night’s presidential debate.


In a pointed tweet, the former The View co-host called Trump an “orange anus,” writing, “(T)he 5 mins orange anus can’t seem to get over — tell the truth – shame the donald #ImWithHer.”

The tweet included a link to O’Donnell on The View criticizing Trump and his involvement with beauty pageants like Miss USA, which O’Donnell called “a modeling competition.”

In the clip, O’Donnell skewered Trump’s handing of a 2006 flap over Miss USA winner Tara Conner, who went out for a wild night on the town and almost lost her title. Flipping her hair over the top of her head, O’Donnell did a dead-on impersonation of the real estate mogul saying, “Everyone deserves a second chance and I’m gonna give her a second chance.”

“He annoys me on a number of levels,” the comic said before launching into an account of Trump’s broken marriages and 5 children by three different women. “And yet he’s the moral compass for 20-year-olds in America. Donald, sit and spin, my friend.”
