Rosie ODonnell has taken to her website to defend herself after being slammed for suggesting on Nov. 21 that Donald Trumps son Barron is autistic. Heres why she chose to publicly speculate about Barron. Rosie ODonnell, 54, has been defending herself on Twitter ever since sharing an anti-bullying video that featured president-elect Donald Trumps son Barron on Nov. 21, which questioned whether he was autistic based on certain behaviors he displayed during his fathers campaign. But on Nov. 26 Rosie decided to address the matter head on by writing an emotional message on her website where she defends speculating about Barron.
Here is how it went down, Rosie began the message. My 3.5 yr old daughter Dakota was diagnosed in September with HFA high functioning autism. I have been immersed in that world/reality since. learning reading asking questions, Its all autism all the time for the newly diagnosed as we try to grab onto anything to keep us standing. The knowledge we r not alone, there r others living this too. When I saw the anti bullying video that mentioned Barron it spoke to the symptoms many ASD kids have it was educational and informational. These symptoms so many do not understand I thought how amazing IF it is true.
Click here to see pics of Barron Trump IF it is true I tweeted from my heart. It would help so much with the autism epidemic. 1 in 55 kids is an epidemic. Donald and I agree on that and not much else. I feel he is a clear and present danger but this autism subject had nothing to do with Donald. Though i admit he does trigger me in all ways. I have no ill will for his children or any children and if u knew anything about me u would know that. Donald does not have the power to change the facts to re write history so speak true stand tall. THE WORLD IS WATCHING. For those who felt me a horror what can i say humans we try our very best and fail often. Peace out as we try to save democracy from this madman who thinks OUR country is his.
Before Rosie addressed the matter on her website, she got SLAMMED on Twitter for sharing the video. You have no interest in Barron. You want to stir up trouble. Play fair. Dont attack kids, Rosie! This is low, even for you! one user tweeted. Insinuates he has autism. Using autism to hurt Trump and a little boy? Offensive to those with autism, another Twitter user wrote. So low!! Amazing that her hatred overflows to his child. You disgust me Rosie, another user tweeted. Many of these users thought Rosie was continuing her feud with Donald by attacking his child. Still, if she was being honest in her message, thats not the case.
Wonder how things figured out with her daughter......
So I guess the ‘leave the kids out of it thing” is on hiatus?
BTW...did I miss the honeymoon period?
The fugly cow regurgitates...
She will roast in Hell.
I thought she was leaving? Wasn’t her Circus Freak Show moving to the Wilds-O-Canada if Trump was elected?
Can ANYONE show me ANY Lib that HAS moved out of America in protest? Has ANYONE sold their Hollywood Hills home for a few million bucks and high-tailed it North?
Yeah. I thought so...
What business is it of hers if the child does have autism???
She tries to make it sound as thought it is a stigma...
In my opinion, it brings great wishes for the child and a sympathetic and caring heart for the Trump family....
She is an irrelevant pig who should be ignored.
A. Her present comments change nothing. I was still inappropriate for her to discuss such a personal issue online.
B. If Barron is autistic, then, so what? It’s not our business. Didn’t her mom ever tell her it’s not polite to keep staring at those slightly different than ourselves? I’m sure Donald and Melania are providing him with a safe, nurturing and loving home. They owe us no further explanation. Being a White House child is not easy, autistic or not. Everything you do or don’t do is publicly talked about.
C. This is a classic example of a Concern Troll.
Will that ()ITCH ever shut up!
You never know. Maybe she put out feelers and Canada justifiably replied "Oh Hell No!"
This is how lies get turned into truth by the media. Someone says it and then what they said gets repeated to deny what they said. If everyone would stop posting this crap, it might die away sooner.
If this was my son.. and I have 4.. I’d be livid that someone can state anything they like about a young boy and have it go like wildfire.
It is criminal to attack a young kid just because they can!! It’s against all the rules for any civil human being... even the crazy ones... just stop repeating it over and over!!
Gawd, she’s a swine. Is she searching for any evidence of brain matter in that pic?
Good for Canada, Bad for US! ;)
“Wasnt her Circus Freak Show moving to the Wilds-O-Canada if Trump was elected?”
What did we do to deserve THAT!?
Would Mexico accept people fleeing from Trump as refugees?
The Pig Is Back...
