The holiday truce between Rosie O'Donnell and Donald Trump has come to an abrupt end, with her comparing him to "a pimp" and him calling her "a degenerate."
The war of words exploded anew after O'Donnell posted a message on her blog on Wednesday – "So what happens/when u say the emperor has no clothes/the comb over goes ballistic/via phone to (larry) king" – referring to Trump's interview on CNN
in which he called her "a terrible person."
After O'Donnell called Trump a "snake-oil salesman"
on The View
last week following his handling of the Miss USA situation, he attacked her in print and on TV, and even said he was sending men to woo her companion, Kelli Carpenter away from her.
In response, O'Donnell said on The View
she would give her reaction to the whole situation – then simply looked at the camera and grimaced. But she clearly had more to say.
Her blog posting describes "beauty pageants/where women were paraded around/judged valuable or not/by old white men/it is always old white men."
She continues: "Remember the seventies/a young girl in nyc/meets a pimp/he cons her into a life of illusion/she works for him."
In response, Trump told the New York Post
, "Rosie got mentally beaten up by me, because she's a mental midget, a low-life. I think she's got a death wish. It's too bad a degenerate is able to get away with things like that."
