Actress Rosie O’Donnell has never minced words when it comes to her extreme opposition to the election of Donald Trump as president.
In the days prior to his inauguration, those words included a plea for martial law to prevent Trump from taking the oath of office.
I FULLY SUPPORT IMPOSING MARTIAL LAW – DELAYING THE INAUGURATION – UNTIL TRUMP IS “CLEARED” OF ALL CHARGES https://t.co/fUn8FZ8RTj

But if the response to one of her latest Twitter posts is any indication, she may have went too far with her latest comments.
While Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., was engaging in a 15-hour speech against Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil M. Gorsuch, O’Donnell sent a tweet Tuesday that not only offered Merkley her support, but also appeared to equate Trump’s election on Nov. 9 to the 9/11 terrorist attack.

The response was quick but, likely not what she was hoping for.
@Rosie I am seriously wondering about your mental health. These admissions are now even more so bordering on lunacy. Please seek help.

@Rosie Did you just equate the election of Donald Trump to 9/11? You need help.

@Rosie 9/11? I guess you didn’t lose a loved one that day did you ? You are a embarrassment to NY / Long Island. Go spew ur hate in Cali

One post reminded O’Donnell of her promise to leave the country in the event Trump became president and told her to leave.
@Rosie Leave America as you said you would.

While O’Donnell has been a frequent critic of the president, she did offer an apology to first lady Melania Trump in December after a tweet in which she suggested the president’s 10-year-old son Barron appeared to have autism.
“I apologize to @MELANIATRUMP — i was insensitive in my RT — i am sorry for the pain i caused — it was not my intent — i am truly sorry,” O’Donnell wrote.
