Trump -- "Disgusting" Rosie's Exit a "Great Service"

5/25/2007 5:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

His Comboverness, Donald Trump, just couldn't resist taking one more swinging kick at Rosie O'Donnell on her way out the door of ABC, saying, "A great service was done by getting her off the airwaves ... she's a disaster."

The billionaire blowhard offered his pointed barbs to MSNBC this afternoon, just minutes after Rosie announced her departure ... and they were like a greatest hits compilation of Trump's Ro disses. "She's not a very smart person," check. "She's disgusting to look at," check. "She's aggressive," check. Of course, he had to get in a dig at Elisabeth Hasselbeck, calling her a "dimwit." Trump is against the Iraq war.

Donald, whose own show, "The Apprentice," just got axed by NBC, predicted that "The View's" ratings would rise in the wake of Ro's farewell, but declared that "The View" had become an "embarrassment" to Barbara Walters.

This is in response to the person that says that Rosie is owed an apology. In no way does she deserve an apology. Even though I am a Rosie fan and believe in alot of the things she speaks about on the day in question when she and Elizabeth got into it.. Rosie was totally wrong.. and rude to boot. Rosie went on the show that day obviously angry at the Republican talk shows who took her to task for WHAT SHE SAID.. and yes, she DID illude to Elizabeth a few days before and IMPLIED that the American soldiers could be considered terrorists for invading that country and killing over 650 thousand people. ROSIE needs to learn if your going to be a big mouth. and opinionated that you have to take responsiblity for it. Elizabeth did NOT have to agree or disagree.. nor did she have to back Rosie for some of the opinions that she has. Elizabeth does not represent every Republican in the universe. What Rosie was looking for was a Republican to back her up. I admire Elizabeth for not falling for that crap. Besides.. Rosie.. even if she thought she was right.. went about the whole thing wrong. You dont call someone a coward for not agreeing with you. You dont ask someone a question and then interrupt them so they cant answer it. You dont ask someone a question and then DEMAND they answer it in a way YOU would like. ROsie should be admired for being passionate about her beliefs.. she should just come off less of a bully when she is trying to get people to listen to her. But then again she was like that on her show too.. believe what I believe and I'll like you.. if you dont.. I'll argue with you, make you uncomfortable and call you names and make a scene. It's kinda sad for someone who really does have some good points to make. But.. if someone owes anyone an apology it should be TO Elizabeth.. for being Rosies punchingbag when Rosie is pissed off at the Republicans for making Rosie accountable for her words. If I was Elizabeth I would have just said.. Rosie.. you claim to be opinionated.. well.. now deal with it. I dont have to validate your beliefs. You have a big enough mouth to defend yourself.

Thanks to be Almighty God, this abomination is off the airwaves. Next we must turn to Donald. Not sure whether he is male or female.

The View will never have good ratings again. I gave up watching the show when Rosie was hired. One way to make sure people won't listen to your opinions is to act like a two year old, yell, scream, attack and call people names. Rosie gained no ground with her behavior and actually gave gay women everywhere a bad name. Now that she is gone, I still don't want to watch. Walters made a huge mistake backing Rosie and sadly The View will pay the price for that bad judgment. Ruining pictures at the studio and destroying a dressing room was just more of the same infantile behavior. I hope people that may hire her in the future, give a second and third thought before giving her a contract. I predict Rosie will have a full and complete melt down. Don't know how the woman who lives with Rosie stands her. She must walk on egg shells all the time.

I agree with all who think Donald Trump's thoughts on the matter about O'Donnell's early departure from The View, are simply irrelevant. O'Donnell expressed a valid reaction about the terrible effects the current war has had on everyday Iraquis, whose lives have been sacrificed in the hundreds of thousands. The statistics are alarming, and routinely ignored in public debate here in the U.S. Although it is obviously easy to take cheap shots at O'Donnell for suggesting that Iraquis might view America's involvement and the hundreds of thousands of civilian deaths, as "terrorist activity," I do NOT for a moment believe that O'Donnell thinks that the working men and women who have volunteered for the U.S. armed services are actually "terrorists," and that is what she was trying to get her co-host to acknowledge. Like many, I'm proud of anyone willing to put his or her life on the line on behalf of our country, but that does not mean that we must blindly support the war, or those who have masterminded it (namely, President Bush and his administration). There are wars that are inappropriate and have very negative consequences for America as well as the rest of the world. The Vietnam war was one salient example; the current Iraqui war is another, in my opinion. God Bless our men and women in uniform, but shame on the current administration that is misusing them.

how sad    

The Dump Truck is just as bad as Elisabitch, they both desparately need
ROSIE to get on the news and entertainment shows. Babawawa said that
contrary to what has been said, the View's highest ratings were in February
before any feuds started.

Donald Trump is a donkey's butt!!! It seems he is the one always attacking Rosie not the other way around. Everytime he is on tv he has to say something about her. And to say that she does her charity work for herself was just a horrible thing for him to say. Lots of children and families of benefited from her good work. Get a life Donald!!

IRosie has overstayed her welcome. The View is set to be just that, views from each member of the panel. Rosie just can't handle the others having an opinion of their own.
