After actress/comedienne, Rosie O’Donnell was blasted by social media for posting a questionable YouTube video suggesting that President-elect Donald Trump‘s 10-year-old son Barron Trump was autistic, she took to her own website to respond.
She claimed that she posted the video as an act coming “from the heart” and had nothing to do with her ongoing feud with Trump.
“When i saw the anti-bullying video that mentioned Barron, it spoke to the symptoms many ASD kids have,” she said, in a post labeled “what we see and why.”
“It was educational and informational.”
She later admitted that she didn’t know if the young boy was actually autistic or merely a 10-year-old fidgety boy, but “thought –- how amazing IF, IF it is true.”
In response to being questioned about making a medical diagnosis without a degree on the basis of a hate-filled video, O’Donnell replied she did so as “just a mom.”
@thatcoffeywoman – no degree – just a mom

O’Donnell instead said that when she “tweeted from [her] heart,” it was done to “help so much with the autism epidemic.”
She added that she has “no ill will for [Trump’s] children –- or any children.”
Many are wondering why O’Donnell didn’t delete the very end of the video, where a male voiceover shouts out graphic language to give a hateful and disturbing message mocking the child.
“This kid’s having a f**king seizure,” the voiceover says. “What the f**k’s wrong with you?”
The profanity-laced rant went on for more than a minute-and-a-half.
