Rosie O’Donnell has gone completely off the rails and wandered into illegal territory yesterday with her vulgar, profanity laced tweets regarding Trump’s amazing victory of passing a much needed tax reform for the country.
Rosie is worth an estimated $100 million, yet she seems to be crying about rich people and greed. SMH.
Rosie loves to rant at the GOP. However, the most interesting part of the tweets, was her offer of $2 million cash each to Senators Jeff Flake and Susan Collins if they were to vote “no” on the tax reform bill.
This is a very clear violation of US Code 18 U.S. Code § 201 – Bribery of public officials and witnesses. This code states in no uncertain terms that this is illegal.
Jeff Jacoby of the Boston Globe tweeted this reminder to Rosie “Here’s a fun fact,
@Rosie: Under 18 U.S. Code §201, offering $4 million in bribes to senators to influence a vote is punishable with up to $12m in fines and/or imprisonment for as much as 15 years.”
Will she be held accountable for this? I sure hope so.
Like the national media and their Democrat allies, former comedienne Rosie O’Donnell is horrified at the idea of people being able to keep more of their own money. Using her verified Twitter account Tuesday night, the aging O’Donnell offered $2 million to both Susan Collins (R-ME) and Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) in exchange for a “no” vote on Tuesday night’s tax cut vote (an act that is unquestionably illegal).
Both senators voted “yay.”
As the GOP’s historic tax bill won the approval of both the House and Senate (on a party-line vote), O’Donnell became increasingly unhinged. First there was her bribe offer…
“so how about this
i promise to give
2 million dollars to senator susan collins
and 2 million to senator jeff flake
if they vote NO
NO I WILL NOT KILL AMERICANS
FOR THE SUOER RICH
DM me susan
DM me jeff
…then she attacked the female Collins in a very personal and vicious way, that included a photo of her family and lines of objectively bad poetry that read, “woman – mother – grandmother – sister – daughter u have betrayed us all … redeem ur soul tomorrow #NOTSEXIST.”
“susan – 2 million dollars cash
call if u want to negotiate
do u think your family is proud of u @sennatorcollins
woman – mother – grandmother – sister – daughter
u have betrayed us all
ask for forgiveness
redeem ur soul tomorrow #NOTSEXIST”
Referencing someone named Rachel “Meadow,” the former talk show host screamed in all caps, “F*CK U SUSAN COLLINS – U MAKE ME SICK – UR NO WOMAN.”
“Rachel meadow asks – “was susan collins engaged … did u feel a heartbeat – was she human” SHE THINKS ITS SEXIST ? NO U SEE SUSAN STOOD AND SAID – NO – I WONT KILL AMERICANS – AND NOW SHE SAYS “YES – YES I WILL KILL AMERICANS” F*CK U SUSAN COLLINS – U MAKE ME SICK – UR NO WOMAN”
Wednesday morning the tax bill faces one more procedural vote in the House before heading to President Trump’s desk, where it will be signed into law.
Also included in the bill is the long-overdue opening of the Arctic National Wildlife Reserve (ANWR) to oil exploration (and the much-needed the jobs that come with it) and the repeal of the Obamacare mandate that forces every American to buy health insurance — a tax that primarily brutalizes those making $50,000 or less.
Wednesday morning, O’Donnell’s pinned tweet reads, “WE CANNOT SIT AT HOME WHILE THEY ROB OUR NATION – YOUR NEIGHBORS HEALTH CARE – FOR THE F*CKING MERCERS AND KOCH BROTHERS – F*CK THEM – RISE UP.”
O’Donnell, who is very wealthy, will almost certainly benefit from this tax cut. As of yet, however, there is no indication from the TV actress if she intends to donate her tax cut back to the U.S. Treasury, something that everyone opposed to tax cuts can do with relative ease, although they never seem to.
So I guess Rosie, a mega-rich Hollywood elite thinks that she can get away with bribing senators for votes. I am not sure how she can possibly have a defense if an investigation were to be launched. Her tweets could not be more clear. They did not seem like a joke at all to me!
Rosie’s lawyers must be losing their minds right now. I can’t wait to see how they wiggle her out of this one. I sincerely hope the feds show up at her door.
