And, just for good measure, he compared her to O’Donnell, whom he famously called “unattractive,” a “bully” and also a “loser” during a feud that lasted several weeks in 2006.
Speaking to Greta Van Susteren on the Fox News Channel, Trump said of Cher: “I’ve watched her over the years, I knew her a little bit and, you know, she reminds me of Rosie with slightly more talent. Not much more talent, but slightly more talent.”
Trump was specifically responding to Cher’s headline-grabbing political musings last week when she tweeted: “If ROMNEY gets elected I don’t know if I can breathe same air as Him & his Right Wing Racist Homophobic Women Hating Tea Bagger Masters.”
Trump already tweeted his reaction to Cher’s tweet — “@Cher attached @MittRomney. She is an average talent who is out of touch with reality. Like @ Rosie O’Donnell, a total loser!” – but he renewed the attack on TV Monday.
“You resurrected Rosie into the fight by calling her a total loser. She wasn’t even in this fight,” Van Susteren said to Trump, whom she was interviewing via telephone.
“Well, I likened her to Rosie as a loser,” Trump said. “But, you know, I understand Cher, and Cher is somewhat of a loser. She’s lonely, she’s unhappy, she’s very miserable, and her sound-enhanced and computer-enhanced music doesn’t do it for me, believe me.”
