Rosie O’Donnell calls Brian Williams a ‘F-king Lance Armstrong Liar’
Rosie O’Donnell took a jab at Brian Williams over the weekend, calling him a “F-king Lance Armstrong liar.” The NBC News anchor stepped down from the job temporarily after he was forced to admit that he had been lying for more than a decade about coming under fire during the Iraq War.
Speaking at the Athena Film Festival on Saturday, where she screened her HBO special Rosie O’Donnell: A Heartfelt Stand Up, Rosie said a few words to the audience before presenting an award to HBO’s president of documentary films.
According to PageSix, she said to a woman in the audience: “I don’t know who you are, but you may be my next wife. Maybe that’s the problem in my relationships; I see someone I like and I make s–t up like Brian Williams .?.?. I escaped on 9/11 from the twin towers. No, I didn’t; I got mixed up. F–king Lance Armstrong liar.”
Rosie of course was herself a subject of scrutiny over the weekend as she made a shocking announcement that she was leaving The View this week. She said her doctor made her do it for health reasons.
