Donald Trump Calls Rosie O'Donnell's Next TV Show 'A Failure'

donald_trump_close_up_scowlingDonald Trump is nothing if not consistent. He hates Rosie O'Donnell and he's ready to tell you how much he does every chance he gets. He's hated her since she appeared on 'The View' and criticized him for some nonsense about the Miss USA pageant. That led to a feud of epic proportions, media-wise, and he won't let it die.

This week when 'Extra' asked Trump about the proposed new Rosie O'Donnell syndicated show, he said, "She's a loser. Her other shows didn't do well, this one won't do well. Everything she touches is a failure, she's a failure."

Well, not exactly. Just because Donald Trump says it loudly and with lots of bluster, it doesn't make it true. Rosie's last daytime talk show was a monumental success. She won the Daytime Emmy five years in a row and retired from the program while it was second only to 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' in ratings.

Yes, O'Donnell's NBC variety show was a monumental flop, but she was the first to admit it. Try finding a quote when Trump has admitted to his flops, like being the key component in destroying the USFL, or filing for bankruptcy more than once or the slumping ratings that caused 'The Apprentice' to be shelved.

Trump is entitled to say whatever he wants about Rosie O'Donnell, but at least he should try to stick to the facts. She's not a loser. She's one of the most successful performers on television, and has a huge, loyal fan base. They bolstered the appeal for 'The View' when she was on that show and she'll probably get them to tune in whenever her new talk show commences.

If it runs or not depends on whether it's good or it stinks. 'The Rosie O'Donnell Show' was a great daytime talk show. It brought back the kind of show that Mike Douglas and Merv Griffin had done. Interestingly, Trump feuded with Merv Griffin, too. ... Hmm, maybe he hates talk show hosts?

Anyway, calling Rosie's next show a failure before it's even aired just makes Trump look mean and vindictive which is probably just how he hopes to be perceived.

Donald Trump is a pompasss azzz and he is not a person I would want in any government office. He is all for himself and nobody else.... except HIS family. Calling Rosie a looser only makes him worse than a looser. He is a twit that acts like he is still in high school, or did he even go to high school. Since he questions everyone's validity, maybe we should question why.

So many of you are being much worse than you have accused Rosie of being. Talk about obnoxious and foul-mouthed. How many of you have ever met her in person? How do you know what she is really like?

You have said that Donald received a big inheritance. Do you know what Rosie inherited from her life? She lost her mother at age 10. So why wouldn't she have emotional problems?

Why do you want her show to fail so badly? There are plenty of other channels to watch. Or maybe you could even turn the t.v. off and read a book.

And last, the comment by Thomas saying Rosie fans must have low I.Q.s was way out of line. I like Rosie. I graduated from college with honors. The only dumb thing I do is to bother to read these things. This will be the last. There are many better things to do than read evil remarks by people who don't seem to have real lives.

D. Trump is very selfish and cannot get over the fact that Rosie had the courage to challenge him on an important topic. I have a great deal of respect for Rosie and she speaks from the heart and helps others without seeking self-glorification as Trump. Maybe Trump is insulting Rosie because he needs a "Media High" at the moment. Her show will be successful as the other ones and I look forward to watching her. Change the channel if you don't care to watch Trump (boring and narcissistic man with a dead animal on his head!) or Rosie, who is funny as hell!

Or if she is going to be on tv, let it be in the middle of the night so as not to insult others with her mouth and beliefs. I used to like it, but then guess she had an eyeopening experience as she became mean and nasty. I do think that she has the right to voice her opionions, just not on my watch and she also does not have the right to invade my tv time.

Some of you are doing the same thing that you accuse him of doing. I guess that your opinions don't count against you. He has the right to voice his opinion just as good ole rosie does. Some of us agree with him and some don't. that is ok, allowed in this country in case you havae forgotten.
