With Rosie O’Donnell’s OWN talk show canceled, as we reported over the weekend, a longtime critic of O’Donnell took the opportunity to rub it in, TMZ.com reports.

Donald Trump, who has had a high-profile feud with O’Donnell for some time, went on Twitter to write: "Rosie O’Donnell has failed again. Her ratings were abysmal and Oprah cancelled her on Friday night. … When will media executives learn that Rosie just hasn’t got it. "

The story adds: “Of course, Trump has been bashing Rosie for years … claiming she was a ‘pig’ and a ‘loser’ after she called him a ‘snake-oil salesman.’"

The report cites a source saying O’Donnell was unhappy with the competence of her staff on the show, even though many of them were veterans of the successful “Oprah” talk show.

Sources involved in the show told TMZ that the staff hated O’Donnell and generally considered it their worst experience in television.

TMZ adds: “We’re told Rosie’s tantrums were predictable and regular. The one word several high level staffers used to describe R.O. is ‘bully.’"


  1. For crissakes, I can’t decide who is the most loathsome in this story. The two of them are enough to make me want to throw up on live television.

  2. Rosie wins, by a furlong.
