Rosie O’Donnell never minces words about her feelings for Donald Trump, her frequent Twitter adversary. Her comedy set last night at the Beacon Theater in New York as the middle act between Boy George and Cyndi Lauper was no different.

The comic jumped right into an expletive-filled rant, saying “I’m so depressed, I’m so depressed – because of that orange piece of sh%&$.”

She continued, “My therapist said don’t focus on it. I said I’d rather give birth to a flaming iguana while taking a sh%$. I hate him. I hate him. And we’re not going to say his name…. Too much? Too negative? Eat me, Donald.”

Later, before a closing second encore solo rendition of “True Colors”, Cyndi Lauper encouraged the crowd to vote.

“We shouldn’t talk about politics because it’s too scary,” Lauper said. “It’s scary we have a reality star running for president. If he chooses a Kardashian for vice president, I’m going to have to move to Connecticut – or something…. I really want to tell you go to vote. It’s really important. Otherwise, we’re going to get f$%%$*$.”
