Rosie O'Donnell Says She 'Couldn't Be Happier' About Donald Trump FBI Raid

Rosie O'Donnell recently said that she "couldn't be happier" about former President Donald Trump's residence being raided by the FBI this week.

On Monday, Trump confirmed that FBI agents had searched his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida, as he condemned the act in a statement, in which he said that "nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before."

"After working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate," Trump added.

Calling the raid "prosecutorial misconduct" and a "weaponization of the Justice System," Trump said the raid was hatched by "Radical Left Democrats" seeking to prevent him from running for president in 2024.

O'Donnell, who has long been a nemesis of Trump, was informed of the raid by law enforcement by one of her TikTok followers, who referred to the former president as "Orange head" in a comment posted on the video-sharing platform.

"Watching it now. Couldn't be happier. FBI raids Mar-a-Lago," O'Donnell responded in a video, before letting out a laugh.

With a television playing in the background, O'Donnell paused for a few moments before concluding "God bless America!"

It is not yet entirely clear the reason for the federal law enforcement's raid on Trump's home. However, it follows months of speculation that federal prosecutors had turned their attention to his actions regarding the riots that occurred on January 6.

This raid comes after two years' worth of text messages sent and received by far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones were turned over to the House select committee investigating the January 6 riots.

The text messages were handed over to the committee by Mark Bankston, who represented two Sandy Hook parents who successfully sued Jones in Texas and won almost $50 million in a civil trial that ended last week.

Jones' attorney, Federico Andino Reynal, had asked the judge in the case to order Bankston to destroy the material and not give it to the committee, but the judge declined this request.

For several years, O'Donnell and Trump have been locked in a nasty feud, which began in 2006 when the comedian criticized the erstwhile television personality on ABC's The View, a show she formerly co-hosted.

O'Donnell slammed Trump for not firing Miss USA winner Tara Conner, who admitted to drug use and underage drinking. Trump responded by calling O'Donnell "a loser" and "fat."

During a segment on The View, O'Donnell stated she didn't "enjoy" Trump, claimed he was actually bankrupt and described him as a "snake oil salesman on Little House On The Prairie."

At the time, Trump rebuked O'Donnell's statements, saying she was "a woman out of control."

"You can't make false statements. Rosie will rue the words she said," he added. "I'll most likely sue her for making those false statements—and it'll be fun. Rosie's a loser. A real loser. I look forward to taking lots of money from my nice fat little Rosie."

The pair's public feud has grown since then, with each party taking regular shots at the other throughout the years.

"When someone dies, maybe he'll shut up," O'Donnell said of Trump on MSNBC back in 2018. The comedian has also called the one-term president "the dumbest human living" and a "creepy fascist."

Trump, who publicly insults his enemies on a regular basis, has called O'Donnell a "mentally sick woman, a bully, a dummy and, above all, a loser" and someone with "no talent and no persona."
