The former "View" host is in hot water for a very dumb, and potentially illegal, Tweet.
The erstwhile Queen of Nice is having a tough year.
Rosie O’Donnell’s turbulent time on “The View” is but a memory. These days, she’s co-starring on the Showtime series “Smilf” and rage Tweeting against President Donald Trump.
Her latest Tweet takes the proverbial cake. It also points to overtly illegal behavior.
so how about this
i promise to give
2 million dollars to senator susan collins
and 2 million to senator jeff flake
if they vote NO
NO I WILL NOT KILL AMERICANS
FOR THE SUOER RICH
DM me susan
DM me jeff

You don’t need to be a legal scholar to see what’s wrong with this offer, which she repeatedly backed up with subsequent Tweets.
Social media wasn’t as kind to her as Newsweek, the fading/failing outlet which put the most whimsical spin on her comments.
Twitter users begged to differ. Here are 12 response Tweets that will make O’Donnell’s bad 2017 a little worse.
You’re concerned about “killing Americans with this criminal bill,” but not concerned about killing babies in the womb by abortion?

The fact that you can pretend to know what’s right and wrong for our Country then tweet an absurdly illegal offer to get your wish is astonishing. Thanks for showing incompetency on these issues

How bout you use your 4m to actually help some sick kids (St. Jude’s?)or homeless vets or put decent food in soup kitchens. 4m can go a long way to helping many people. Don’t be such a hack #Rosie

How will we bury all the millions of dead after the Tax cuts are signed by the POTUS? This is going to be a logistical nightmare.

Congratulations, you just publicly attempted to bribe 2 US Senators! Enjoy the visit from the @FBI. Don’t bother deleting it. Screen shots abound.

Because you have money, you should be able to influence politics more than the people who voted them into office? Typical.

It’s this still up? 1. The bill passed. 2. You’re incriminating yourself 3. Do you have any idea how absolutely loony you sound? Probably not. 4. Merry Christmas!

I for one am excited about the tax cut but being I don’t have 2 to 4 million dollars to illegally bribe any senators like you do Rosie I guess your say is more important than mine. Buying votes? The height of corruption.

This completes a great 2017. Imagine a left loon, who extols the evils of the rich, using her (sorry if gender offends) wealth to control outcomes. The irony is palpable. #mirror

If Trump doesn’t savagely dunk on Rosie on Twitter for trying to bribe Flake and Collins, why did we elect him?

Did Rosie O’Donnell actually publicly attempt to bribe GOP Senators or was that my pain medication?
— Michele Frost (@michelelfrost) December 20, 2017
I would totally take Rosie’s 2 million, then still vote yes on the bill.

Here’s fellow Leftist Louise Mensch trying to reel her comrade back into Reality Land.
It’s bribery, I know you’re joking but you cannot pay lawmakers to vote. We’re almost @Russia but not quite yet
How about you help fund their opponents if they vote the wrong way, pretty sure that’s legal 🙂
