Just to spare you the research trouble, this all dates back to Rosie's 2006 appearance on ABC TV's 'The View.' But first a recent gem.
Rosie earlier this year on 'Entertainment Tonight:'
ET Interviewer, referring to Donald Trump, Republican nominee: "What will you do if he becomes president? Is it time to leave the country?"
Rosie, looking directly at the camera,
"He will never be president!"
Maybe the real reason that Donald Trump doesn't like Rosie O'Donnell is that she did the best imitation of Trump during her on 'The View' - click here for the link to the 2006 video, and that was 10 years before Alec Baldwin did his on Saturday Night Live last week. She also criticized Trump for forgiving the party crazed coking (as in cocaine, not the soft drink) episode of beauty pageant crown winner, Tara Conner, Miss USA.
You can skip past the self-centered candidate's pronouncements, and get to Rosie gems, beginning at 1:30.
She lists out Trump's marital infidelities and then says mockingly, "And he's the moral compass for 20 year olds! Sit and spin, my friend."
Listen to how forward seeing she was, that she points out that he got off, scot-free for his multiple bankruptcies. And this was years before the rest of us and the media had caught wind of the fact that he's an incompetent in financial matters.
Further driving the dagger is that she pointed out that the inheritance from Daddy Fred (who died in 1999) is a main resource that got him on good financial footing after his 1990s business failures. "You know what saved him the second [bankruptcy] time, after his father died he paid off all his bankruptcy. This is not a self-made man."
"This guy is like one of those snake oil salesmen on 'Little House on the Prairie.'"
(This is what was known about Trump's immunity through his multiple bankruptcies in the spring of the previous year, 2005, from Legal Zoom.)
The videos linked here include a clip where Donald Trump clearly threatened Rosie O'Donnell's girlfriend at the time.
Watch the video at 4:50 in which Trump responds by clearly threatening her girlfriend, "She ought to be careful. 'Cause I'll have one of my friends to pick up her girlfriend. And I think that it will be easy to do."
But Rosie was tough. See the clip of her at 6:06, the next day on 'The View.'
Trump, just like he's doing in 2016 to Alicia Machado, he kept up the attack, and went on 'Anderson360' to attack. He lied when Anderson Cooper asked for him to address his multiple bankruptcies.
See this other video, on 'Anderson Live,' with a guest host filling in for Cooper. In this 2012, O'Donnell reported that the Trump Steakhouse in Las Vegas got a C health rating.
