"Fox anchors are being accused of being hormonal and ashamed because they have their period," O'Donnell said during a radio interview.

Rosie O'Donnell addressed Donald Trump's Megyn Kelly remarks and came to the defense of women in an interview with SiriusXM's Just Jenny.

Following the GOP debate, Trump said that Kelly had "blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her whatever" when she questioned the former Apprentice star and referred to her as "overrated" and a "lightweight."

The former View host, who in the past has been the target of Trump's insults (he's referred to her as a "fat pig," "dog" and "disgusting animal"), discussed the "war on women that is happening in this country."

"It's bigger than any specific people," O'Donnell said when the show's host, Jennifer Hutt, remarked that Trump's comments toward her were "vile." O'Donnell continued: "There's a war on women that is happening in this country. Starting with basic abortion rights, freedom to choose that we fought for in the '60s and '70s, that women died for, bleeding in back alleys from hanger abortions. Women fought for equality in this country and right now, politically, it's being taken away."

O'Donnell and Hutt discussed Kiran Gandhi, the female runner who competed in the London Marathon and opted to not wear a tampon to increase awareness about women worldwide that don't have access to menstrual hygiene products.

"Why do you think she did that?" O'Donnell asked. "When Fox anchors are being accused of being hormonal and ashamed because they have their period, … then that woman does that. Why do you think she does that stuff? You don’t think she did that to say, ‘F— you, asshole'?!"
