On Thursday, under fire from multiple sides for his quixotic firing of FBI director James Comey, President Trump took to Twitter to identify one of his key supporters in the Comey firing: Rosie O’Donnell.
We finally agree on something Rosie. https://t.co/BSP5F3PgbZ

Of course, O’Donnell’s tweet came in December 2016, but that doesn’t change the fact that this is pretty hilarious. Trump has been trolling O’Donnell for years. In 2006, Trump said he wouldn’t fire Miss USA Tara Conner over her controversial history, including sex and drinking; Rosie, who co-hosted The View at that point, said she doesn’t “enjoy” Trump and claimed he went bankrupt. Trump called her a “real loser” and a “woman out of control,” and threatened to sue her. In December 2011, Trump tweeted upon learning of O’Donnell’s engagement to Michelle Rounds:
I feel sorry for Rosie ‘s new partner in love whose parents are devastated at the thought of their daughter being with @Rosie–a true loser.

O’Donnell called him an “ass.”
In May 2012, Trump again called O’Donnell a “total loser.” In April 2014, he trolled her over getting a weight loss surgery. In July 2014, he called her “crude, rude, obnoxious and dumb.” In February 2015, he called her a “trainwreck” and a “total loser.” In a presidential debate, he said that he had only called O’Donnell a “fat pig,” “dog,” “slob” and “disgusting animal,” when queried by Megyn Kelly.
Good to see O’Donnell and Trump on the same page again.
