Rosie O’Donnell reemerges, wins over MSNBC panel by suggesting military coup to ‘get’ Trump

At some point, Americans have to start taking the left at their word, especially when the message is as troubling as what was heard from Rosie O’Donnell.

Granted, O’Donnell was the original member of the Trump Derangement Syndrome crowd, but she appeared on MSNBC Thursday to say the U.S. military should be sent to the White House to “get” President Donald Trump.


“What I wrote on Twitter was we should impose martial law until we make sure the Russians weren’t involved in the final tally of the votes,” O’Donnell said. “And people were like, ‘Martial law? What’s wrong with you?’

“He wants to send the military to the border,” MSNBC host Wallace chimed in, fully on board with the suggestion of a military coup.

Her reference was to Trump suggesting the possibility of sending the military to the southern border to stop an invading caravan of illegal immigrants currently heading toward the United States.

“I want to send the military to the White House to get him,” O’Donnell then declared.

The panel erupted in laughter, as if this was the funniest thing they’d ever heard.

“I don’t know if I can top that,” Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson said. “That’s actually a pretty good idea.”

Of course, had someone gone on national TV and said this about Barack Obama, the columnist would have been among the first to shriek from the rooftops.

As for comedy, the troubled comedian explained that it took her a full year to be able to grasp the reality that Trump was elected president.

“I took a year out of the spotlight,” she said, after noting that she got physically ill on election night.

O’Donnell did tweet support for imposing martial law in January 2017, “until Trump is ‘cleared’ of all charges.” If you think the Robert Mueller probe is moving slow now — putting aside the fact the president has not been charged with anything — he’d be wrapping up sometime around November 2020 under that scenario.

But launching the country into a major constitutional crisis is nothing for the left, who eat from “the end justifying the means” trough.

Here’s a quick sampling of reactions to O’Donnell’s reemergence on the political scene from Twitter, beginning with actor James Woods, who is now an important voice on the right:
