War of­words rages

Townsville Bulletin - - Who’swho -

THE

bit­ter bat­tle of words be­tween Don­ald Trump and Rosie O’Don­nell is not over.

‘‘Rosie’s a loser. She’s been a loser al­ways,’’ the real es­tate mogul and host of The Ap­pren­tice said.

‘‘Her show failed, her mag­a­zine failed. Bar­bara Wal­ters gave her new life, but she’ll fail at that also be­cause she’s in­her­ently a stonecold loser.’’

It all started af­ter Trump an­nounced last week that Miss USA Tara Con­ner, whose ti­tle had been in jeop­ardy be­cause of un­der­age drink­ing, would keep her crown. (Trump owns the Miss Uni­verse Or­gan­i­sa­tion, which in­cludes Miss USA and Miss Teen USA.)

O’Don­nell, an out­spo­ken co-host on The View, the TV talk show cre­ated by Wal­ters, said Trump’s news con­fer­ence an­noyed her ‘on a mul­ti­tude of lev­els’ and that the twice-di­vorced Trump had no right to be ‘the moral com­pass for 20-year-olds in Amer­ica’, amid roars of au­di­ence laugh­ter

Trump fired back, call­ing O’Don­nell a ‘bully’, among other in­sults, in in­ter­views with me­dia out­lets, in­clud­ing CNN’s Larry King Live.

The feud con­tin­ued this week when O’Don­nell posted this en­try on her web­site: ‘‘so what hap­pens/ when u say the em­peror has no clothes/ the comb over goes bal­lis­tic/ via phone to mr king.’’
