It’s no secret that Rossie O’Donnell isn’t a fan of Trump — their decade-long feud was often raised during the campaign by Trump’s enemies as an example of his misogyny. But after Trump’s victory, O’Donnell went to Twitter to shame Melania Trump for posing nude many years ago when she was a young model.
She posted a picture which pairs a nude Melania alongside clothed pictures of iconic U.S. first ladies — Eleanor Roosevelt, Jackie Kennedy, Nancy Reagan and Michelle Obama — suggesting she’s not classy or worthy to be the next FLOTUS.
Picture below. We did the blurring, not Rosie:
A year ago, O’Donnell slammed Trump for the “misogyny he lives in and with” and constantly shared articles decrying Trump’s rampant sexism. Donald Trump once called her a “slob” with a “fat ugly face”.
@RnRNegus – explain his brilliance ? the books he didn't write? the racism he spews ? the lies he tells? the misogyny he lives in and with?

Her shaming of Melania Trump over her successful modeling career is just one example of online vitriol the first lady designate received over the weekend. On Twitter, “Rape Melania” was briefly trending on Twitter after a sign appeared during an anti-Trump protests.
While most Twitter users denounced the sign, which contributed to making the phrase trend on the platform, others continued posting the same picture of Melania being naked for a photo shoot.

Interestingly, O’Donnell was recently far kinder to another female member of the Trump family. When she ran into Ivanka Trump shortly before the election, she was so inspired by Ivanka’s beauty and grace that she wrote a poem about the encounter, rhapsodizing that “that is the most beautiful woman i have ever seen”.
