Rep. Lee Zeldin’s office fired back at Rosie O’Donnell on Friday after the comedian and longtime Trump nemesis called the congressman a “lying sack of sh*t” on her Twitter account Thursday.
O’Donnell repeatedly attacked Rep. Zeldin (R-NY) in several Twitter messages, calling him a “moron” whose career is “over.” In a statement to Breitbart News on Friday, Jennifer DiSiena, communications director for Rep. Zeldin, said the congressman would not be “deterred” by O’Donnell’s “ugly” attacks.
“Congressman Zeldin is fighting for his constituents and the American people,” DiSiena said. “He unapologetically wants our President and country to be successful and won’t be deterred by these ugly attacks on social media.”
Zeldin drew the ire of O’Donnell by appearing on MSNBC Thursday to defend Donald Trump Jr.’s reported meeting with Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya in June, which sparked renewed allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government when it was revealed this week.
