It seems that Rosie O’Donnell finally had to face the consequences of her sickening attack on 10-year-old Barron Trump, son of President-Elect Donald Trump and current wife Melania Trump.
“Rosie O’Donnell’s on-going feud with Donald Trump is well-known, but last week, Rosie took it too far when she started spreading rumors that Barron Trump was autistic. This crossed a line since any decent person would agree that while celebrities and politicians are fair game, their young kids are off limits.” — Rebecca Diserio, Mad World News
The remarks from Rosie set off a social media firestorm with many tweets expressing disgust at Rosie’s lack of class.

Now, it appears Rosie has finally had to back down in the face of what was likely imminent legal action, and she issued an apology on her Twitter account:
Her Twitter has since been set to “private,” meaning only people she approves can see her tweets. It was a rather pathetic and weak response, in light of the crudeness and bullying nature of her statements, and most of Twitter wasn’t having it.

There is no apology she could make to change the disgusting remarks she made ! Rosie O'Donnell is a vile piece of garbage. Not a human being https://t.co/uIJu0qxmkZ

Despite her pathetic apology and setting her account to private, Rosie O’Donnell will not soon be able to live down this bit of infamy, a rather sordid example of the left’s war against all decency and civility that left even some liberals disgusted.
While it is appropriate that Rosie finally had to admit that she was wrong, it will not undo what is likely to be lasting damage to whatever semblance of an image she possessed, nor change the fact that millions of people now perceive the true attitude of “kindness” and “tolerance” liberals have towards the mentally and neurologically challenged.
