Rosie O’Donnell on Trump’s Media Attacks: ‘When Someone Dies, Maybe He’ll Shut Up’

Rosie O’Donnell absolutely teed off on President Donald Trump Monday night on MSNBC over the anti-media rhetoric at his rallies. In an appearance on The Beat, host Ari Melber threw to clips of the president attacking the press, and was about to ask the comedian if she’s concerned about those types of comments. But he couldn’t even get the question out. “You know, when someone dies, maybe he’ll shut up,” said a fired up O’Donnell. “When someone dies, maybe he’ll shut up.” The actress added:
He’s doing dog whistles everyday, and he’s shouting out to people who try to fight off their own internal racism — he’s encouraging them. When he goes after LeBron James, are you kidding me? On the day after he opens a school in Ohio?…It’s crazy to me, the people that he attacks. Someone will get hurt. Someone will die. And someone . Heather [Heyer] died at one of those rallies. How many more people are gonna have to die before we realize what a horrible bully pulpit he has? No president has ever used it the way he has. It’s been a disgrace to democracy, our standing in the world, what America is about, and will return to being as soon as he’s out.

The comments come on the heels of Bret Stephens of The New York Times and Brian Stelter of CNN reporting on death threats made against them. Watch above, via MSNBC. [featured image via screengrab]
