On MSNBC Thursday, Rosie O’Donnell dropped by to…well…be insane.
During a segment on Deadline: White House, Rosie described her year-long depression after the election of Donald Trump:
“It took me a good year to compose myself to be in public again. I took a year out of the spotlight.”
May I just say: I don’t care who takes the Oval Office; if you find yourself depressed for a year due to an election, you’re in deep, deep need of psychological help.
And speaking of craziness (like here), this is what she had to say:
“What I wrote on Twitter was, we should impose martial law until we make sure the Russians weren’t involved in the final tally of the votes. … And people were like, ‘Martial law? What’s wrong with you?’”
Why, yes — what’s wrong with you????
And by the way: Who’s “we”? The government? The executive branch is part of that institution.
Does Rosie think she and those like-minded should be in charge of the big decisions for the country? Above even the office of the president?
Maybe so. After host Nicolle Wallace pointed out, “[Trump] wants to send the military to the border,” Rosie offered this gem:
“I want to send the military to the White House to get him.”
Riiiiiight. That’s just what we need — America’s armed forces, under the sole dictatorial control of ex-talk show host, Rosie O’Donnell. For majors and generals, she can make Chelsea Handler a major goober (here) and Alyssa Milano a general goober (here and here).
The panel on MSNBC — including the host — thought Rosie’s notion of a military coup was a reeeeeeal knee-slapper.
Eugene Robinson, of The Washington Post, complimented the concept:
“I don’t know if I can top that. That’s actually a pretty good idea.”
What would’ve happened during the Obama presidency, had Fox News talked about a military overthrow of his administration?
I doubt MSNBC or The Washington Post would’ve laughed.
Personally, I find the idea scary. Like Rosie O’Donnell.
