Rosie O' Donnell Vs Donald Trump. Can't They Both Just Get Along?

You know, we as a society must lead mundane, ordinary lives. I mean, how else do you explain our endless fascination with the trivial, the nonsensical? As an example: something like The Rosie O'Donnell/Donald Trump Feud getting a truck load of media attention as John Q. Public(and let's not forget Joan Q. Public. That would be unfair to the ladies.) focuses it's complete attention to their on going war.

This shameful,shallow drama began unfolding when Trump(who owns the pageant) forgave Miss USA , Tara Connor after she indulged in a an evening of drinking despite being underage . On that night, Ms. Connor proceeded to paint the town red and Miss USA Pageant officials in turn ended up seeing red after her late night revelries made the front page news. There was a hue and cry to wrest the crown from Ms. Connor's head for her blatant disregard of the pageants rules, but Trump intervened and made the decision not to discipline little Ms. Party Animal.

Rosie O' Donnell fired the opening salvo on The View by calling Trump "a snake oil salesman" and from that point the fight began. Trump responded with a nasty,vitriolic verbal assault claiming he could steal her girlfriend, Keli. After that, Rosie brought her girlfriend Kelli on The View saying," I was afraid to leave her at home in case someone with a comb-over came and stole her from me."

Since then, we've been treated to their constant non stop petty bickering. Oh,The Views studio audience ooh's and ah's whenever O'Donnell opens up her over sized mouth and once again verbally lashes out at Trump who in turn spits out another volley of bellicose verbiage. An endless cycle if ever there was one.

To her credit, Barbara Walters , a friend Trump, has tried to calm the waters between the two opponents but to no avail, their cat fight rages on. And we love it. It's as if everyone can't get enough of Trump and O'Donnells very public battle. If we can't see it on Inside Edition, there's always Talk Soup, the internet or the various entertainment periodicals available at our local magazine stores.

Sooner or later John and Joan Q. Public will grow tired and gravitate their limited attention span to something or someone else. You know, the next new thing. I know in my case, I've grown weary of the name calling, the exchanges of hostilities in the eyes of the media. Hell,I've grown tired of the whole mess(or is bored the word I'm looking for?).

In any event, Trump and O'Donnell should shake hands, let by gones be by gones and go their separate ways. Besides there's always another pair of celebrity combatants just waiting in the wings for their moment in the spotlight. And all of us(to our discredit) wait breathlessly so that we can watch the drama unfold before us.
