Rosie O'Donnell tells CNN's Chris Cuomo she believes Trump 'is loathed in America'

Rosie O'Donnell is certain that on Nov. 6, Americans will "show up in a huge way" in order to send a message to President Trump.

"People have just really have had enough of a president who separates families and puts babies in cages," O'Donnell told CNN's Chris Cuomo on Monday night. Every day, Trump "does something worse than the day before," O'Donnell said, and she believes "Trump is loathed in America. People are embarrassed and ashamed of who he is and come Election Day, we're going to stand up in the polls and let him know."

O'Donnell and Trump have a longstanding feud, dating back to O'Donnell saying on The View in 2006 that he was a "snake-oil salesman." She was on Cuomo Prime Time to discuss the Monday night protest she organized with anti-Trump demonstrators, featuring 60 current and former Broadway performers singing in front of the White House. She told Cuomo the purpose of the protest was to "remind people of the truth that lives inside them, so when they're so confused and lied to by our president and this administration, they're able to find that thing about America that they love."

The interview did get a bit heated, like when they discussed the size of Trump's recent rallies and O'Donnell told Cuomo that airing them "is just playing into [Trump's] hands." Watch the video below. Catherine Garcia
