Tuesday night, “Extra” caught up with Rosie O’Donnell at the Emmy FYC event for the Showtime series “Smilf” in NYC, where she weighed in on President Trump’s new lead attorney, Rudy Giuliani.
Rosie, who has never been shy to talk politics, said, “I think Rudy Giuliani is done and we should stick a fork in him and he's a bumbling old man-fool in a suit that doesn't fit. The days of Donald and Rudy running New York are over and soon Bob Mueller will show up and democracy will be restored to our great nation.”
O’Donnell also opened up about her longtime friendship with Roseanne Barr, who has vastly different political opinions from her. Despite that, Rosie told "Extra" it doesn’t affect their friendship. She revealed, “We have 100% conflicting political views and we are very close friends. She's like a big sister to me. She will always be my big sister and I will always love her and defend her. There are people with varying degrees of opinions and I don't think she and I could be any further apart, and I love her, and that's just two complicated thoughts that exist in one.”
In addition to starring as the outspoken South Boston mother of Frankie Shaw on “Smilf,” which will be returning to Showtime for Season 2, Rosie also has plans for a comeback to the stage! She teased, “Hopefully gonna do a Broadway show. A one-woman show, a stand-up that we're going to record for a comedy album.”
