Rosie O’Donnell calls out ‘Morning Joe’ for allowing Trump to trash her in 2007

Rosie O’Donnell took a swipe at “Morning Joe” for allowing Donald Trump a platform to attack her back in 2007, calling out co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Willie Geist by name.

During an appearance on MSNBC with anchor Ari Melber, the former daytime host accused MSNBC and the mainstream media of providing him a regular platform early on and not standing up to his falsehoods.

“All you have to do is look at the tapes from “Morning Joe” from 2007,” said O’Donnell. “They had him on once a week and they all ganged up. Willie Geist was very anti-Rosie O’Donnell. So was Joe Scarborough, so was every reporter on Fox, and it went on and on.”

O’Donnell said that Trump used the network to propagate the false rumor that her television show had been canceled when in fact the comedian said she walked away from “a hundred million dollars” to be a parent.

“He changed the narrative and the factual truth about who I am to the public of America when I was not on T.V. every day to refute it,” she added. “Nobody would stand up to him and they would let him.”

Melber –fresh off celebrations for the one year anniversary of his show — offered a lawyerly response.

“You mentioned some of my colleagues who have their own TV shows so as my practice, I will let them respond how they want with their own TV shows,” he said.

Though O’Donnell has said she barely knows Trump, the feud between the two is legendary, stretching back more than a decade to their days as television hosts. In the infamous first GOP primary debate, the billionaire joked that the only woman he ever called a “fat pig” or “disgusting animal” was Rosie O’Donnell — to wide audience applause.

For her part, the O’Donnell gave it right back, telling Melber on set that the president was too mentally unstable for office.

“He’s a horrible, horrible human with no soul and he has a very serious mental disorder,” she said. “This guy is in no means mentally stable enough to run this country and he should be impeached.”

Reps for MSNBC and “Morning Joe” did not immediately respond to request for comment.
