Rosie O’Donnell is at war with Donald Trump again, but this time by proxy.
It started over a decade ago when O’Donnell slammed Trump on “The View”, a show she abruptly quit, drawing consternation from former left-wing ally Joy Behar.
Now instead of trading barbs publicly, O’Donnell is throwing her support behind a criminal who dislikes Trump as much as she does.
O’Donnell donated money to the GoFundMe page of Reality (formerly Sarah) Winner, an NSA contractor who leaked classified documents.
What does Rosie O’Donnell call Reality Winner, the 25-year-old Bernie Sanders-supporting government contractor who leaked top-secret documents from the NSA? Why, a “brave young patriot,” of course. And to show us just how much O’Donnell loves treason against the USA, the washed up television star and ardent anti-Trumper donated $1,000 to Winner’s GoFundMe campaign.

The description at Winner’s GoFundMe page states, “This is a time to come together and unite in peace and hope and show the world LOVE ALWAYS WINS over hate! Good resists even when evil persists!”
However, as the Washington Free Beacon points out, “GoFundMe’s terms of service forbid setting up or contributing to a campaign set up for ‘the defense or support of anyone alleged to be involved in criminal activity.’”
O’Donnell just loves rule breakers, especially those on her side of the aisle:
Do you support Jillian Assange as he speaks truth to power as well. Just asking…

If you’re wondering if someone who changes her name to “Reality” is unhinged, she is.
In addition to Reality Winner illegally leaking classified documents, she posted highly questionable content on social media, which makes one wonder how she got cleared to handle such sensitive material in the first place.
From the Washington Times:
The 25-year-old woman, accused of leaking top-secret information and facing a lengthy prison sentence, not only hates President Donald Trump, as her social media pages show. But she also seems to harbor a hatred — self-hatred, given her own skin tone — of white people. And boy, does she love Iran.
The proof of all this seems to be in the Twitter pudding.
“@kanyewest,” Winner tweeted in February, Breitbart found, “you should make a shirt that says, ‘being white is terrorism.’ “
“@POTUS #racism that is all,” she tweeted in February.
“@realDonaldTrump the most dangerous entry to this country was the orange fascist we let into the white house,” she tweeted that same month.
And her Instagram account wasn’t much tamer toward Trump.
Meanwhile, as The New York Times noted, her Twitter feed also included a message that seemed sympathetic to Iran’s foreign minister. The pertinent message read:
“There are many Americans protesting US govt aggression towards Iran. If our Tangerine in Chief declares war, we stand with you!”
Holy cow. That’s disturbing, wouldn’t you say? A wolf among the NSA sheep.
Winner currently is being held in a facility in Georgia.
The former National Security Agency contractor stands accused of printing out top secret documents from the government facility and mailing them to the leftist media outlet, the Intercept. The documents dealt with Russia’s hacking of the U.S. election in 2016. The FBI said Winner has confessed. And she’s very likely headed for a long prison sentence, of 10 years or so.
But here’s a question her social media postings just seem to beg for answer: How many more seeming haters of America are working the halls of NSA facilities at this moment?
It’s a bit uncomfortable to think of how many more Winners might be out there, roaming the offices of NSA, accessing top-secret documents and information, printing out papers and files — and using them to score political points. Or worse.
The story gets more troubling. Not only is Winner a traitor, she appears to be a fraudulent, self-aggrandizing loon.
From Channel 2 in Atlanta:
Based on evidence seized from her home, federal prosecutors detailed Winner’s alleged plans to burn down the White House and travel to Afghanistan, pledging her allegiance to the Taliban.
They said in recorded jailhouse calls, she told her mother how to play her side of the story in the media— as someone who was scared she’d disappear from an interrogation room in her Augusta home after Saturday’s raid.
Prosecutors said a phone call to her sister expressed Winner’s confidence in how to play the court during her bond hearing.
“I’m pretty, white and cute,” she allegedly told her sister. Prosecutors said Winner told her sister she would braid her hair and cry in court.
Prosecutors said she also instructed family members to transfer $30,000 into her mother’s account so she’d appear poor enough for a court-appointed attorney.
Prosecutors also said while Winner was serving in the Air Force she put a removable thumb drive into a top-secret computer. The government testified that it has no idea where that drive is now.
These are the people whom leftists like Rosie O’Donnell always end up aligning themselves with.
Reality Winner appears to be despicable in every sense of the word, and doesn’t deserve financial or moral support from a prominent figure who’s simply looking to score some cheap political points against the president.
