Rosie O'Donnell Goes off the Rails in Twitter Melee With Ben Shapiro: 'Suck My D*** Ben'

Ben Shapiro, editor-in-chief for The Daily Wire, filled in for Glenn Beck on Thursday and discussed a bizarre exchange he had with Rosie O’Donnell on Twitter. The tweet stemmed from Rosie’s attempt on Tuesday to bribe senators with $2 million if they voted against the GOP tax reform bill. Twitter lit up and many called for an investigation into the matter for influencing votes.

Here’s how it all went down:

As usual, Ben provided a clever quip that stopped Rosie in her tracks.

Watch above to hear Ben’s reaction to the debacle and catch him hosting for Glenn on “The Glenn Beck Radio Program” this Thursday and Friday.

BEN: So this was rather hysterical yesterday. So the left lost its mind over this tax bill. And as I've mentioned, there's a lot to like about the tax bill. There's a lot there that's good. There's some things in there that are not so good. There are a few deductions that went away, that hurt specific groups of people.

There are deductions that hurt people, particularly in high-tax blue states. That would be the biggest one. There's a decrease in the mortgage interest deduction, which hurts people in areas that have high real estate prices. Which coincidentally happens to be places like California and New York and Massachusetts.

But some people just lost their minds. Well, what was left of those minds. Rosie O'Donnell is a highly unpleasant person. She's just a very unpleasant human being.

I think one of the reasons that President Trump is president is because he was one of the first to recognize that Rosie O'Donnell is a deeply unpleasant human.

So Rosie O'Donnell tweeted out that she wanted to bribe a bunch of senators. I mean, as the thing was being passed, she tweeted out, how about this? I promise to give $2 million to Senator Susan Collins and 2 million to Senator Jeff Flake, if they vote no. No, I will not kill Americans for the super rich. DM, Susan. DM me, Jeff. No bleep. Two million. Cash each.

Well, that was a problem because that's actually a violation of the law. Right? That's a federal felony under 18 code section 21B, in which it basically says that if you try to bribe a congressperson for a vote, then you have to pay up to three times the amount of the bribe to the federal government. So it would be $12 million in this case, or spend 15 years in prison or both.

Now, would Rosie ever be convicted of this? Probably not. Because you say a lot of things on Twitter. She would just say, oh, I was joking. I wasn't really serious. Except she kept saying over and over again on Twitter she was serious.

So I jokingly tweeted out yesterday that if President Trump told Attorney General Sessions to initiate prosecution of Rosie O'Donnell, he told him to begin the investigation into Rosie O'Donnell, then immediately they would begin the carving of President Trump on Rushmore. Rosie O'Donnell didn't like that. She got mad. So she tweeted back at me, suck my bleep, Ben. Which is weird for a variety of reasons. It's really odd. And so I tweeted back, you're already a felon, Rosie. Don't be a homophobic sexual harasser as well. #Metoo.

So, yes, I was sexually harassed on Twitter by Rosie O'Donnell, which is just a horrifying proposition. And I feel deep down in the cockles of my heart, that I've been targeted on the basis of my sex by Rosie O'Donnell, and I don't like her homophobic language that she's using there either.

Also, I'm not sure why she's so transphobic, to suggest that she has a set of male genitalia, when clearly she does not, or at least supposedly she does not. I mean, I don't know, maybe she does, and she's just been hiding it from everybody for years. I don't know. She's the one who is saying to do this. I'm not.

But this is the level of ire and silly that we have reached from some folks on the left. So Rosie O'Donnell sexually harassing me on Twitter.

Yeah, this year has been kind of weird. Kind of weird.

NO comparison between REAL Jim Crow laws & Georgia voting bill

The left keeps comparing Georgia's new voting regulations to Jim Crow era laws, arguing the voting bill is too restrictive and even racist against minority populations. But Glenn argues that it's an INSULTING comparison to make, especially to those who actually lived and experienced the real, horrifying Jim Crow laws during the early 20th century. In this clip, Glenn explains what Jim Crow ACTUALLY means and how Georgia does not even COME CLOSE.

With Texas' recent elimination of state-mandated COVID regulations, Major League Baseball was back full swing in the Lone Star State; the Texas Rangers just held the first full-capacity sporting event since the start of the pandemic. In this clip, Stu details the non-strict 'mask police' that were at the game, and Pat makes an interesting prediction: could mask regulations for vaccinated Americans actually be phased out by Memorial Day?

Did Joe Biden tell America to stop praying?

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

WATCH this pastor chase 'communist' cops out of his church: 'Gestapo is not allowed here!'

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

Watch this clip to see the heated exchange:
