Donald Trump, Rosie O'Donnell Rekindle Feud After Debate
O'Donnell called Trump an "orange anus" on Twitter after the debate.
The decade-old war of words between Donald Trump and Rosie O'Donnell erupted again during the presidential debate Monday evening when Trump said that O'Donnell was deserving of the criticisms he'd made of her in the past.
"Somebody who's been very vicious to me, Rosie O'Donnell, I said very tough things to her, and I think everybody would agree that she deserves it and nobody feels sorry for her,” Trump said Monday night.
Rosie didn't waste time coming up with a response, calling Trump an "orange anus" on Twitter and posting her comments from a 2006 episode of ABC's The View that first ignited the feud.
"He annoys me on a multitude of levels," O'Donnell said in 2006. "He's the moral authority? Left the first wife, had an affair. Left the second wife, had an affair. Had kids both times, but he's the moral compass."
Trump has gone after O'Donnell several times during his run for the presidency, calling her "a total train wreck" and "a loser" in 2015.
After the debate, several in Hollywood came to O'Donnell's defense on social media, including Madonna who starred with the former View host in A League of Their Own. "Mess with my girl Rosie and you're messing with me!!! Cruelty never made anyone a winner.#rebelhearts4ever," she tweeted with a photo of the costars in the 1992 film.

Rosie is crude, rude, obnoxious and dumb - other than that I like her very much!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 11, 2014
I feel sorry for Rosie 's new partner in love whose parents are devastated at the thought of their daughter being with @Rosie--a true loser.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 14, 2011
Rosie O'Donnell just said she felt "shame" at being fat-not politically correct! She killed Star Jones for weight loss surgery, just had it!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 10, 2014
