It was December of last year that comedian Rosie O’Donnell found herself apologizing to first lady Melania Trump for cyber-bullying Mrs. Trump’s young son, Barron.
O’Donnell had shared a video to her vast social network; the video claimed the young boy had autism. Through additional social media posts, the comedian used this strange conspiracy theory as a platform to attack Donald Trump as a liar.
In other words, she used an innocent child as a pawn to attack a man she has long sparred with and disliked. Furthermore, she dissected a child’s mental health in public, though she has no medical background whatsoever. It was appalling, and she rightly apologized for it.
“i apologize to @MELANIATRUMP — i was insensitive in my RT — i am sorry for the pain i caused — it was not my intent — i am truly sorry,” wrote O’Donnell on Twitter.
