In the wake of Donald Trump’s announcement that he is canceling his proposed Republican presidential debate after a poor response from candidates, he released an impassioned rant against those who mock him.
In his most recent Web video tirade, Trump targets MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell, tying the monologue in with his favorite subject: Hating Rosie O’Donnell and watching her fail.
“Lawrence O’Donnell — his show is failing,” Trump said. “It’s a disaster. They moved him out of the 8 o’clock spot because [Fox News host] Bill O’Reilly was absolutely killing him. They gave him the less-coveted 10 o’clock spot, and he’s dying at that.”
“Then you have Rosie O’Donnell,” Trump continued, “and it’s really interesting — their names are the same. Maybe they should get married but Rosie just found a new mate and I don’t think she’d find him attractive, even if that were the way she goes.”
As The Daily Caller’s CJ Ciaramella wrote of the Trump-O’Donnell feud in October, “Hell hath no fury like a Donald scorned.”
“It’s kind of crazy,” Trump mused. “When I don’t like someone, their shows do really badly.”
“Rosie’s show is a complete and total disaster. Lawrence’s show is a complete and total disaster… So I have an idea. Maybe Rosie O’Donnell and Lawrence O’Donnell (and they must be related somewhere along the line)… should get together, form a show, and they’ll have the lowest rated show of all time.”
“What a good idea,” Trump concluded. “I’m a natural at television.”
