Rosie O’Donnell, in an interview published Wednesday, provided an update on her opinion of President Trump, and it hasn’t changed for the better. The outspoken Trump critic told W magazine that she wonders whether she “personally will be able to live through his presidency.”
“There are people who tell me, ‘Oh it’s going to be another year, another two years,’ and I seriously worry whether I personally will be able to live through [his presidency] and whether the nation will be able to live through it and survive,” the comedian says in an interview with W magazine published Tuesday.
“It’s a terrifying concept, on the brink of nuclear war with a madman in charge. And the ineptitude — the impotence of people who should be able to stop him claiming they can’t — is absolutely infuriating,” said O’Donnell, who’s been engaged in a war of words with Trump stretching back years.
O’Donnell tells the mag it’s taken her “a full year to integrate the reality of him being a president in a way that I don’t come across as either so full of rage that no one can hear my words, or so sad that I can’t articulate the level of pain.”
“It’s taken a year for me to get my equilibrium back, to come back up to the surface, to really go, ‘Okay, every Monday is the hope that this is the last week’ — and every Friday is a devastation,” said O’Donnell, who stars in Showtime’s upcoming drama series, “SMILF.”
