Rosie O’Donnell led a rally outside of the White House on the night of President Trump’s congressional address in an effort to “send a clear message,” to the President.
O’Donnell, who has called Trump a “mentally ill man” and said that he will eventually “go down” along with his entire administration, was in Washington DC for the “Resistance Address” protest ahead of Trump’s address to a joint session of Congress.
The rally, organized by progressive advocacy groups, including Hip Hop Caucus, VoteVets, NARAL Pro-Choice America and the ACLU, endured rainy weather where dozens attended to listen to O’Donnell mock “Trump Math.”
“Look at this crowd of 1.8 million people. This is Donald Trump math, ladies and gentlemen. You say it, the media buys it,” O’Donnell said.

The former actress went on to say that President Trump should be charged with treason due to the investigation regarding the possibility of connections between the Trump campaign and Russian officials.
“Whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it and to institute new government – that is why we are here,” she said, quoting the Declaration of Independence. “We the people will get him out.”
O’Donnell continued, “This is not Russia. To Donald Trump and his pathetic band of white privileged criminal businessmen, I would like to say to him, ‘nyet, sir, nyet.’ We’ve seen what you have done, sir. We have seen your connections to Russia. The game is over. The internet rules.”
When asked about the Democrats could set a bad precedent for the party due to their obstruction efforts, O’Donnell said, “It worked for the Republicans.
O’Donnell then set her sights on the media lambasting them for not calling Trump a “liar,” regardless of the fact that several media outlets have used the term in headlines and stories when Trump has misstated facts.
Progressive activists are going to go “down and dirty from now on, just like Donald Trump,” she continued.
“The truth matters. Even if our major media companies will not call him a liar, we will. He lies. He lies,” she said. “It’s about time they all start saying it.”
O’Donnell was asked if she had a message for women in America who voted for Trump.
“The women who support him really need to research who he is and they need time to stand all the facts about him that pissed him off when I announced them in 2006 and are still true today. He’s been bankrupt 4 times. He is a crappy businessman.”
In Spanish, O’Donnell told reporters that she loves immigrants and that every person who lives in the U.S. should be considered an American.
