WATCH: Rosie O’Donnell Panics About Trump Immunity in Message to Followers: ‘Hold On’


Liberal comedian Rosie O’Donnell etched a deep grimace on her face in a video message to supporters on Tuesday, urging them to “hold on” after the Supreme Court ruled that sitting presidents enjoy sweeping immunity from criminal charges.

Before taking a break to feed her backyard squirrels, O’Donnell lamented the court’s decision but said that anti-Trumpers should look for silver linings.

“Listen, I’m depressed myself, but I’m trying to tell you out there if you are, you’ve gotta hold on. We’ve survived all of the depressing days so far. We’ll survive this one. Reach out for your friends for help. Tell the people that you love how you feel… and, um, know that this country I believe is gonna right itself and oust [Trump] for good in November. Boy, I pray,” she told her followers on TikTok.

Since largely leaving Hollywood behind, O’Donnell has fashioned herself into a forceful critic of President Trump, occasionally appearing on cable news to excoriate the Republican leader for a litany of perceived offenses she claims should disqualify him from office. In April she sat opposite Bill O’Reilly during an appearance on Chris Cuomo’s NewsNation program where she called for “unity” following the election, prompting O’Reilly to fire back that she has done nothing but sow division since Trump was first elected.

“I agree with you [Bill] and I think that no matter who wins in November, this country has a lot of healing to do. We have to forgive each other for our trespasses and our misconceptions. And then try to reunite as one country, united, and that’s the dangerous thing that’s happening when I say, Chris, Democracy is on trial. It’s because without this, we’re nothing as a nation. We have to get everyone back together again in some way,” O’Donnell told Cuomo and O’Reilly according to the Daily Caller.

The veiled slight against Trump was picked up by O’Reilly.

“Okay, but Rosie with all due respect, you’re not going to be successful saying ‘democracy is on trial’ and anybody who supports Donald Trump is a fascist. You’re not. I mean those people are going to reject you 100% because there’s a lot more to it than you are presenting,” O’Reilly stated.

A timeline of the Trump-O’Donnell feud compiled by CNN dates back to 2006 when the then-“View” host criticized the billionaire for refusing to dismiss a Miss America contestant over drug use. He is “not a self-made man,” O’Donnell claimed at the time, but a “snake-oil salesman on Little House On The Prairie.”
Trump quickly responded, calling O’Donnell a “loser” and “a woman out of control.”
