The Republican Presidential Candidates Debate started off with a bang on Aug. 6, when Donald Trump reignited his feud with Rosie O’Donnell, saying he believes she’s not only a ‘fat pig’ and a ‘slob,’ but a ‘disgusting animal.’ Dang Gina.
Donald Trump just reignited a war at the Republican Debate on Aug. 6, but it’s not one between two countries. Instead, he slammed his longtime enemy, Rosie O’Donnell, while responding to a question given to him by Fox News’ Megyn Kelly.
When Megyn told Mr. Trump that he’s known for degrading women on Twitter, saying, “you’ve called women you don’t like fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals,” he quickly interrupted her. Donald put up his arms and said, “only Rosie O’Donnell.” The crowd then roared with laughter and started clapping. Megyn had trouble keeping a straight face, but she continued and told him he was likely talking about more than just Rosie, to which he said, “probably.”
She then added, “You once told a contestant on Celebrity Apprentice it would be a pretty picture to see her on her knees. Does that sound to you like the temperament of a man we should elect as President, and how will you answer the charge from Hilary Clinton, who is likely to be the Democratic nominee, that you are part of the war on women?” To hear that and his answer, watch the video below.
Rosie seems to have responded with the following tweet.
try explaining that 2 ur kids

Donald Trump, who is famous for getting into Twitter fights, has had multiple, nasty exchanges with Rosie O’Donnell over the years. He thinks she’s a “bully,” but we think that’s like the pot calling the kettle black.
