Love Trumps Hate? Rosie O'Donnell Spews Anti-Trump Speech During a Protest

ashley.rae | March 1, 2017

Ahead of Trump’s address to a joint session of Congress Tuesday evening, organized a “resistance address” rally in front of the White House. described the event on its Facebook page as way to “Defend American Values in a Time of Moral Crisis.” The speakers who were chosen to defend America against the supposed “moral crisis” included Larry Cohen from Bernie Sander’s “Our Revolution” organization and comedian Rosie O’Donnell.

During the rally, which MRCTV attended, Cohen said part of resistance means standing in the way of immigration officers and converting to Islam.

“We don’t take the word ‘resistance’ lightly. We know what it means when we say we will resist. It means that if they come for an immigrant and I’m not an immigrant, I will stand there and they’ll have to take me first. That’s resistance,” Cohen said to applause. “It means that if they try to target Muslims and I’m not a Muslim, I’ll be a Muslim and I’ll register.”

Cohen went on to claim Trump is trying to create a billionaire ruling class because he believes billionaires “should be ruling us.”

“And so as we resist Donald Trump’s state of the union, as we resist his words meant to trick us up while he puts billionaires around him, while he believes that billionaires should be ruling us just like the ruling class,” Cohen stated. “As we resist him tonight we look around at our sisters and brothers here and across the country and we know that love trumps hate and we know that our positive vision of the future will lead to victory as long as it takes.”



While Cohen spoke about how “love trumps hate,” O’Donnell criticized “white, privileged, criminal businessmen” in the Trump administration and compared his administration to Russia.

“This is not Russia. To Donald Trump and his pathetic band of white, privileged, criminal businessmen, I would like to say to him, 'Nyet, sir!' ‘Nyet!’ ‘Nyet!’ ‘Nyet!” O’Donnell screamed.

“No, we won’t! We have seen what you have done, sir! We have seen your connections with Russia, the game is over. The internet rules. All media is universal. The truth matters, even if our major media companies will not call him a liar, we will! He lies! He lies! He lies! He lies! He lies!” O’Donnell yelled as she led the crowd into a chant.

O’Donnell continued criticizing the media by saying, “And it’s about time they all started saying that instead of, ‘It appears that he hasn’t been speaking the truth.’”
