Rosie O’Donnell recently called into radio host Jenny Hutt’s SiriusXM show, “Just Jenny,” and talked about Trump’s idiotic remarks against Megyn Kelly while also defending periods.
EW reports that When Hutt said that Trump’s comments regarding both Megyn Kelly and O’Donnell were “disgusting” and “vile,” O’Donnell responded, “It’s bigger than any specific people.” The former co-host of The View continued, “There’s a war on women that is happening in this country. Starting with basic abortion rights, freedom to choose that we fought for in the 60s and 70s, that women died for, bleeding in back alleys from hanger abortions. Women fought for equality in this country and right now, politically, it’s being taken away.”
Hutt and O’Donnell also discussed London marathoner Kiran Gandhi, who ran without a tampon in order to raise awareness about women who have no access to feminine products.“Why do you think she did that?” O’Donnell asked. “When women on national platforms of the Republican Party, when Fox anchors are being accused of being hormonal and shamed because they have their period, then that woman does that. Why do you think she did that? You don’t think she did that to say ‘Fuck you, asshole!’”
O’Donnell also spoke up against period shaming and said this fine gem, “I’d like to take my period blood that I no longer have and write, ‘You’re all assholes.’ I’d like to smear it all over some people’s faces.”
