Is Babwa Lying?

Trump Sticks to Claim

1/3/2007 7:34 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Click to return to TMZ.comBarbara Walters said she still loves Rosie, but Donald Trump isn't buying it.

On today's episode of "The View," Walters read a statement correcting specifics in a recent rant Rosie O'Donnell waged against Donald Trump, and added that she has never regretted hiring Rosie -- though Trump maintains the opposite was said to him.

Trump called into CNN Headline News' "Showbiz Tonight" and said Barbara's feelings towards Rosie are anything but cordial, and he believes she has to put up a front for the sake of the show. "Is she going to get on and say that 'I can't stand Rosie'? She has to work with her," adds Trump, "Barbara knows what she said to me, and if I really tell you what she said, it just creates havoc." Far be it from The Donald to want any havoc!

Although he says he has nothing but love for Barbara, there's "zero chance" Trump will appear on "The View" to hug it out with Ro anytime soon.

Hear Trump's towering interview tonight at 11pm ET.

All of this crap is getting old. He's managed to make a fortune but that doesn't make him a decent and/or good man. Mr. Trump is an idiot with an obvious lack of personality, brains, and most definitely looks. He really has no room to put Rosie down. If he really believes America is any more fond of him than they are Rosie he's lost his mind.

This guy has the nerve to call Rosie names when he keeps repeating the word slob in reference to her.That to me seems like Trump has a thing about over weight women and that is in no way fair to millions of women who has nothing to do with this fight.I think Trump is so upset because he finally came across someone who's not afraid to stand up to him.Give it a rest Donald you may as well be whipped now as it is later.

Donald has alot of nerve making all those comments about Rosie! At least SHE made her millions ON HER OWN! Nobody gave her a fortune to play with like Daddy did with Donald Duck. All the comments he is making about Rosie discribe HIMSELF right down to the letter! Does he think he is scoring brownie points ranting like a lunatic to the public? Somebody please topple this arrogant a**hole! He needs to be taken down and taught a lesson! He's an over the hill perverted ass licking scum.

Barbara is LYING 100%.........and she is trying to save face.
She also insults everyones intelligence by saying Rosie's on vacation.
Who do you know starts a new job and goes on vacation in 3 months?
She clearly told Rosie to take a vacation so she could clear up this mess
that ROSIE STARTED. I'm glad Donald is exposing Rosie and Barbara's
true colors.

I also agree that the view is a trainwreck waiting to happen......sure
the ratings are up right now cause everyone enjoys watching a trainwreck.
Its only a matter of time.

Will someone explain to me what Rosie said wasn't the truth? She said sarcastically that he is a fine example of a moral compass. I agree. She said he went bankrupt several times. His companies did. Perhaps not personal bankruptcy, but she never said personal bankruptcy. Semantics if you ask me. She is also a comedian and her impression is spot on. He needs to move on. She has remained silent and taken the high road, while he has been horrible, calling her a pig, among other things. I wish someone would put HIM in his place. Money definitely cannot buy class.

I think BW is lieing and Rosie's contract is for a Sc hool year and School holidays. This was announced on her Blog PRIOR to the Trump fiasco. Trump shows no class.

Well, I suppose that if The View OFFERS to renew Rosie's contract after this season then we'll know Trump was the liar. IF they DO NOT offer to renew Rosie's contract, then we'll know Trump spoke the truth. On the other hand; Ro may feel as if being in the public spotlight every day is not for her; after all it was HER idea to have only a one year contract. Time will tell.
