Left-wing actress and activist Rosie O’Donnell lashed out at President Donald Trump in a social media post Monday, calling him a “Russian asset,” a “con man,” and a “criminal.”
“[T]rump is a russian asset – a con man – a criminal – we must get rid of him asap ImpeachTheMF” Rosie O’Donnell said.

This was in response to a social media post she made in January 2017, reading, “I FULLY SUPPORT IMPOSING MARTIAL LAW – DELAYING THE INAUGURATION – UNTIL TRUMP IS ‘CLEARED’ OF ALL CHARGES.”

O’Donnell’s meltdown comes as many in Hollywood are panicking about President Trump’s upcoming Oval Office address about border security.
“I am pleased to inform you that I will Address the Nation on the Humanitarian and National Security crisis on our Southern Border. Tuesday night at 9:00 P.M. Eastern,” Trump announced Monday.

The 56-year-old has previously called for President Trump to be jailed. In December, O’Donnell called the president “truly a madman.”
“May he rot in jail,” she declared.

The former View host appeared on MSNBC in October and revealed that she didn’t want to appear in public for an entire year after Trump’s 2016 election win.
“I actually got physically sick that night. I thought to myself, this cannot be happening,” she said. “When he got the nomination, I thought I just have to wait until election day. And then he won. It took a good year to compose myself in public again. I took a year out of the spotlight.”
She also doubled down on her tweet about declaring “martial law,” saying, “I want to send the military to the White House to get him.”
