Rosie O’Donnell mocked presidential candidate Donald Trump on Thursday, accusing the GOP frontrunner of inciting “hate crimes,” wanting to ban all Muslims, and accepting “endorsements from the Ku Klux Klan” during a Broadway show for charity.
According to The Daily Mail, during a performance of the musical Disaster! O’Donnell mocked Trump — one of her favorite targets — by singing a parody version of Grease’s “There Are Worse Things I Can Do.” O’Donnell sang:
There are worse things I could do, and I’ll now name one or two. These are things he’s said or done, just sit back, let’s have some fun.
I could build a giant wall, Mexico pays for it all. And repeal Obamacare, do that weird thing with my hair. It’s a combover, it’s true, that’s a thing I’d never do.
Get endorsements from the Klan, brag about my tiny hands. Ban all Muslims coming in, and have bright-orange skin, that’s a shade I eschew.
Tell Ted Cruz I’ll spill the beans, we still don’t know what the f—k he means!
Have my words incite hate crimes, declare bankruptcy four times. Tell the Taj Mahal screw you, and everything I’ve said is true, but you know he’s gonna say; “I’LL SUE YOU!”
While Trump has become a popular target of entertainment industry criticism, he and O’Donnell have been trading hits for almost a decade.
The Trump-Rosie feud began in December 2006, after Trump decided not to fire Miss USA Tara Conner, who was caught drinking and using drugs.
Trump, who was the the co-owner of the Miss USA pageant, said Conner had made “very, very bad choices,” but decided to give her a second chance, so long as she entered rehab.
“I’ve always been a believer in second chances. Tara is a good person. Tara has tried hard. Tara is going to be given a second chance,” Trump said.
The following day on The View, O’Donnell criticized Trump’s decision not to fire Conner and accused him of being a “snake-oil salesman” in a rant that also slammed his children and multiple marriages.
Trump responded by referring to O’Donnell as “a real loser.”
The feud has continued through the years, and again made headlines last August, after Fox News’ Megyn Kelly accusing Trump of attacking women during the first Republican debate.
While making no mention of derogatory statements made about Trump by O’Donnell, Kelly said to Trump: “You’ve called women you don’t like ‘fat pigs,’ ‘dogs,’ ‘slobs’ and ‘disgusting animals.’”
Trump responded: “Only Rosie O’Donnell.”
