Rosie O’Donnell demands Sen. Collins ‘ask for forgiveness’ in unhinged rant about Americans getting tax cut

It may be time for Rosie to seek help.

Comedian and prominent Trump-critic Rosie O’Donnell sent out a scathing attack on Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) late Tuesday prior to Senate’s vote on the GOP tax bill, which passed early Wednesday.

The former “The View” co-host brought up the senator’s family, asking whether she thought her loved ones are proud of her.

“Woman, mother, grandmother, sister, daughter, you have betrayed us all,” O’Donnell wrote. “Dear god, ask for forgiveness, redeem your soul tomorrow.”

The tweet featured a photograph of the Maine lawmaker pictured with her family on the day of her father’s 90th birthday.

The comedian closed her message with the hashtag #NOTSEXIST. This may have been a reference to Collins blaming “sexism” for reports that Republican leadership “duped” her into voting “yes” on the tax bill.

Moments earlier, O’Donnell penned a tweet in which she offered Collins and Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) $2 million dollars each if they would break the party line and vote against the tax relief legislation.

She then opened her offer up to any Republican senator willing to cast a “no” vote.

O’Donnell acknowledged that accepting a bribe would be illegal, but suggested seeing the Republican lawmakers “indicted” was part of her plan.

One of O’Donnell’s arguments was that GOP senators have been bribed already.

In her rant, the comedian claimed democracy would be “done” if the GOP tax plan were to become law.

Both Collins and Flake voted in favor of the bill Wednesday morning.

Offering money to public officials with the intention to influence policy is illegal, which could put O’Donnell in trouble with the law if her tweets can be construed to be serious, rather than sarcastic.

Many twitter users were critical of the celebrity’s apparent bribery attempt.
