One would think that the left would stop attacking Donald Trump since every time they go after him they end up on the losing side. However, that hasn’t stopped them from continuing their hateful rhetoric and attacks, and now Rosie O’Donnell is the latest leftist to learn this harsh karmic lesson.
Rosie O’Donnel has been one of the loudest critics of Trump for years and now her home in New Jersey will be BULLDOZED. However, that is not the funniest part of this entire comedy of errors.
Not only will her home be bulldozed but it will be replaced with affordable housing.
Go on and laugh with me!

This should make all her liberal friends happy, right?
I mean they are all about spreading the wealth and being fair after all.
According to the New York Post:
After years of not being able to find a buyer for her Saddle River mansion, Rosie O’Donnell finally caved and sold her home at a loss, The Post has learned.
But the home’s next residents are already causing a stir in the tony neighborhood, home to the rich and famous, from rapper Ja Rule to singer Mary J. Blige.
The six-bedroom, nine-bathroom abode is expected to be demolished and turned into a series of affordable housing units per a landmark public court settlement with Fair Share Housing Center.
But the agreement has left its upscale residents outraged.
According to an unnamed source who lives in the area and was familiar with the proceedings, the borough had plans to comply with the affordable housing requirements in Saddle River. The requirements usually include sites that are 100% affordable.
However, in this case, local developers Saddle River Investors intervened, court docs show.
And their intervention only “added insult to injury,” the source said.
As part of a fair housing court settlement between the borough of Saddle River and the Fair Share Housing Center of NJ, the 5-acre lot that belonged to O’Donnell will be converted into 60 units — of which only 20% will be used for affordable housing.
Essentially, the source said, “the developer plans to segregate the units, instead of integrating them with the high density multi-family housing.” While there is no legal requirement that the units be integrated, residents say the current plan doesn’t sit well with them. Saddle River Investors has declined to comment on the matter.
The insider explained that of the 60 units in the plan, “only eight are set for low and moderate income and the developer will stick the eight units in the back corner of the property instead of integrating, so everyone will know these are the homes saved for the poor.”
The controversy calls to mind similar issues over affordable housing, such as the so-called “poor door” at the upscale Lincoln Square Tower in Manhattan.
issue,” another resident said. “Fair Share Housing decided to make Saddle River its example.”
Bergen County court records reveal the case — including the 20% affordable housing stipulation — was settled when the borough agreed to include O’Donnell’s property and two other neighboring properties that span 10 acres.
“It makes no sense and it’s creating a further divide between the wealthiest and the non [wealthiest],” they added. “There is not even public transportation here!”
O’Donnell, 59, sold the property at a $1 million loss for $5.3 million on March 17 after five years on the market, according to an insider. The actress, who is currently filming the new season of Showtime’s “The L Word,” first bought the home in 2013 for $6.3 million.
O’Donnell currently resides in an $8 million, four-bedroom, three-bathroom luxury New York City penthouse in Midtown.
This has got to be incredibly embarrassing for lunatic leftists Rosie O’Donnell.
Ever since going against President Trump, she just keeps losing! Well, as I said before, what comes around goes around, and that is what she is seeing now.
