Kat Timpf to Mediaite on Her Twitter Beef With Rosie O’Donnell: ‘She’s Gotta Find a Hobby’
This past weekend, in response to calls by Rosie O’Donnell to impose martial law to delay the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump until he’s cleared of all “charges,” Fox News contributor Kat Timpf appeared on Fox & Friends to weigh in.
During the broadcast, she stated that O’Donnell should accept that the Trump will be president and do something to relax, such as “take some deep breaths” or “take a bath.” Well, it appears that created a bit of a Twitter war between the two women, with O’Donnell responding to Timpf’s TV spot with this tweet…
@KatTimpf – and u r proud of that? take a bath – ok – kat timpf – how disappointing –
— ROSIE (@Rosie) January 14, 2017
…and it apparently devolving into a full-fledged online fight after that.
Mediaite’s Travis Irvine caught up with Timpf to get her side of things. The Fox News personality, who also hosts a show on Barstool Sports, first recapped what she said on F&F that set Rosie off.
Timpf acknowledged that O’Donnell took the bath comment differently than she intended while pointing out that she complimented the former The View host for her past movie roles in the online back-and-forth.
Noting that O’Donnell followed and then quickly blocked her on Twitter, Timpf said that “she’s gotta find a hobby or something.”
Check out the video above to see Timpf also discuss the Hollywood bubble and Bob Beckel’s return to Fox News.
