Rosie O’Donnell is giving the Grinch a run for his money.
The comedian and actress lashed out at Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) for his role in passing the GOP tax relief bill after the House Speaker shared a video of himself delivering a Christmas address.
At the end of each year, no matter how short—or long—it may feel, there is always Christmas. Waiting for us is that sense of wonder the shepherds felt when the angels appeared in the night sky to herald the birth of a Savior. pic.twitter.com/oFdj7EIyzS

“At the end of each year, no matter how short—or long—it may feel, there is always Christmas,” Ryan said. “Waiting for us is that sense of wonder the shepherds felt when the angels appeared in the night sky to herald the birth of a Savior.”
O’Donnell wasn’t impressed by the spiritual remarks.
The former “The View” co-host called Ryan a “fake altar boy” and wrote that he will go “straight to hell.”

O’Donnell also quoted a tweet from left-wing activist Shannon Watts that read:
“Jesus was a brown-skinned Middle Eastern undocumented immigrant. He condemned the greedy and commanded us to serve the needy without condition. He was murdered by conspiracists who preached the rule of a police state over compassionate humanity.”
Although Jesus was not an illegal immigrant, O’Donnell sought to make the point that Ryan was hypocritical for proclaiming his Christianity while supporting tax cuts.
The 55-year-old actress’s opposition to the Republican tax plan has landed her in trouble.
Last Tuesday, O’Donnell offered senators Susan Collins (R-ME) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ) $2 million each if they would vote against the bill.

i promise to give
2 million dollars to senator susan collins
and 2 million to senator jeff flake

Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro blasted her bribery offer, leading to a Twitter spat in which O’Donnell made lewd remarks–including telling Shapiro to “suck e d***” and “lick me.”
The “Daily Wire” head notified reported the comments to Twitter, resulting in the obscene tweets being deleted and O’Donnell’s account being briefly “locked.”

Rosie should probably stay away from social media.
