Trump: Rosie May Help The View, But She’ll ‘Self-Destruct Within a Year’

One of the highlights of Rosie O’Donnell‘s stint on The View was her infamous feud with Donald Trump, and so obviously we need The Donald’s take on O’Donnell’s return to the show. And on Fox today, Trump said O’Donnell might help the show’s ratings, but predicted, “She’ll probably self-destruct within a year.”

Trump, who earlier today gave O’Donnell a series of backhanded compliments over her return, admitted, “It’s a good idea for The View, she gets ratings.” Trump took a few shots at her, obviously, saying her career since leaving the show has been abysmal, and while he predicted she’d implode, he conceded that “short term, it’s a good idea for The View.”

Trump, of course, was infamously critical of O’Donnell after she ruthlessly mocked him on The View for his hair and for presenting himself as a morally decent person, and Trump shot back by calling her ugly and said if he was in charge, he’d say… oh, you know the thing he says.
