Rosie O’Donnell starts online sh*tstorm by speculating that Barron Trump might be autistic

Published

Comedian and voluble critic of President-elect Donald Trump Rosie O’Donnell kicked off a heated online controversy when she suggested on Twitter that Trump’s youngest son Barron might be autistic.

On Tuesday, she wrote, “Barron Trump Autistic? if so – what an amazing opportunity to bring attention to the AUTISM epidemic.” The tweet contained a link to a video exploring the idea that Barron Trump might be on the autism spectrum.

Critics erupted at the comedian, who has five children and has publicly struggled with daughter Chelsea’s emotional and mental health issues.

Republican Trump supporter Mike Cernovich decided to use O’Donnell’s tweet as an indictment of liberals, writing, “They’re going after a 10 year old. That’s what trash exists on the left.”

O’Donnell responded that she doesn’t think there’s any shame in autism and that she believes Trump — with whom she has a years-long feud — could use the opportunity to promote autism awareness.

Former Ukraine ambassador Bill Taylor told Congress on Tuesday that the freeze was directly related to Trump's demand for an announcement that Biden was under investigation.

In a hearing before the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan, Consovoy took the position that Trump is immune from a subpoena for his financial records, which are being investigated by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr.

At one point, Judge Denny Chin asked Consovoy about what he called the "Fifth Avenue example," referring to a Trump claim that he could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and get away with it.

‘Not a pretty picture’: Second-ranking GOP senator inches closer to impeachment after Bill Taylor testimony

Published

on

The second-ranking Republican senator sounded an alarm over testimony by the former Ukraine ambassador.

GOP Whip John Thune (R-SD) reacted to testimony Tuesday by veteran diplomat Bill Taylor, who told lawmakers that President Donald Trump directed efforts to pressure Ukraine to announce an investigation of Joe Biden in exchange for congressionally approved military aid.

"The picture coming out based on the reporting we’ve seen is not a good one," Thune told reporters Wednesday, "but I would say until we have a process that allows to see this with full transparency it’s pretty hard to come to hard and fast conclusions."
