Trump Opens Fire on Barbara Walters
It looks as though there will be no chance of a truce between Donald Trump and Rosie O'Donnell, as Rosie returned to “The View” on Monday from a much-needed vacation, and she wasted no time poking fun at The Donald upon her return.
“He's like the ever ready comb-over bunny,” she joked.
Now, it's a tag team fight, as Rosie's boss, Barbara Walters, jumps into the fire.
“I would like to just hope that once and for all we could rise above it,” Barbara said.
“It's not we, it's him,” Rosie refuted.
“Extra” was with Trump across town at “Live with Regis and Kelly” Monday morning, and only we have his angry reaction to what the ladies of “The View” said about him.
“Everything that he said I said about her is totally untrue,” Barbara said on live TV, denying Trump's claim that she had complained to him about Rosie.
And that remark had Donald ready to lash out.
“Barbara lied, and she knows very well,” Trump said. “She will have to live with herself.”
Trump is also taking Rosie to task over his remark about her weight.
“He wounded millions of women by saying that I was fat,” Rosie said on the air.
But Trump told “Extra” that Rosie, per usual, misquoted him.
“I used the word 'slob,' I used the word 'degenerate,' and I used the words 'not very smart,'” he said. “The word 'fat' played a very small role in my description of her.”
Just as “The Apprentice” returned to primetime, the fired-up Trump went on “Extra” Rumor Control.
First: is it true that the feud between Trump and Martha has been fully resolved?
“Well, I haven't spoken to Martha, but I have great respect for Martha. I like Martha and I always will,” he answered.
But what about the possibility of another bouncing baby for Donald and his beautiful wife, Melania?
“There's always a possibility,” Trump confessed.
And finally, will Miss USA, Tara Conner, pose for Playboy?
“We're looking at it right now,” Trump acknowledged. “There is certainly a chance.”
