Rosie O’Donnell ‘disappointed’ Hillary Clinton even read mean Trump quote on Kimmel

Rosie O’Donnell considers it ‘disappointing’ that during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live this week, Hillary Clinton read an insulting quote about O’Donnell uttered years ago by Donald Trump.

It was part of a comic bit that fell flat as Kimmel tried to get Clinton to laugh by having the Democratic presidential nominee pick random Trump quotes out of a hat and reading them aloud.

‘She read it … disappointing,’ O’Donnell tweeted to Gay Star News.

Clinton during her appearance on Monday (22 July) read from a slip of paper: ‘If I were running The View, I’d fire Rosie O’Donnell. I mean, I’d look at her right in that fat, ugly face of hers (and) I’d say, “Rosie, you’re fired.”‘

‘That’s not funny,’ Clinton said, looking serious. ‘That’s not funny.’

The quote was from nearly a decade ago when O’Donnell, during her first stint as a co-host on ABC’s The View, ridiculed the now-Republican presidential nominee for his handling of a Miss USA controversy. O’Donnell called him a ‘snake-oil salesman’ and mocked his hairstyle and Trump responded with a barrage of insults.
