Comedian and actress Rosie O'Donnell said in a new interview that history will remember the years of the Trump administration as "horrible days" for the United States.
The former host of "The View" told USA Today that those demonstrating against the Trump administration's policies will be seen as being on "the right side of history" after President Trump's time in office ends.
"These are horrible days. And history will record them as such," O'Donnell told the outlet. "The people that fought and did everything they could to use their voice against all this administration represents — they will be on the right side of history when it is all done. And let’s all hope that’s soon."
O'Donnell added that she considered herself an early target of Trump's Twitter attacks, which she says have now evolved to govern his interactions with world leaders.
"What he did to me and so many others, well it's now nations, and the world," O'Donnell told USA Today. "It’s like a nightmare come true. The guy who is your personal bully for over a decade is now running the country."
In an interview with W magazine last year, the actress again sharply criticized the president, saying she was worried about surviving Trump's time in office.
“It’s a terrifying concept, on the brink of nuclear war with a madman in charge. And the ineptitude -- the impotence of people who should be able to stop him claiming they can’t -- is absolutely infuriating,” O’Donnell said.
“There are people who tell me, ‘Oh it’s going to be another year, another two years,’ and I seriously worry whether I personally will be able to live through [his presidency] and whether the nation will be able to live through it and survive.”
These are not the images of a woman whose feet are solidly planted in the real world.
