Rosie: “I Seriously Worry Whether I Will Be Able to Live Through His Presidency”

Poor Rosie O’Donnell. She’s so distraught by the results of the 2016 election that she’s not sure she’ll survive Trump’s presidency. What a drama queen.

From W Magazine:

Rosie O’Donnell Breaks Her Silence on Donald Trump: “I Seriously Worry Whether I Will Be Able to Live Through His Presidency”

As someone who’s always been outspoken and especially so about her politics, it’s been an unexpectedly quiet year for Rosie O’Donnell. Donald Trump has publicly feuded with and bullied O’Donnell since December 2006, when she called him a “snake oil salesman” during a segment on The View, on which she had a brief run as co-host…

I wonder if your role as a comedian has something to do with so many people not taking you seriously a decade ago?

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. 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.

She obviously has much bigger issues to deal with than worrying about who’s in the White House. Get help, Rosie.
