Rosie O' Donnell Likens Donald Trump to 'Satan' at LGBT Awards

Rosie O' Donnell Likens Donald Trump to 'Satan' at LGBT Awards
- Rosie O'Donnell made quite the impression at the recent Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation Media Awards ceremony. The event was held just this past Saturday, May 6, in New York and featured the former talk show host who had been specially requested to present an award to an actor. O'Donnell, however, earnestly used the opportunity to share her personal political views:

LGBT people are prone to mental illness. It's a truth we shouldn't shy away from
- There came a certain point in my experience of being LGBT where I accepted that I had to be strong and uncompromising in the face of disapproving glances and withering remarks. I made a pact to throw myself into my community with zeal, no matter how exhausting, and to make full use of the privileges I was afforded in the tolerant metropolis I’d landed in.
And yet, for some reason, I find this an incredibly difficult attitude to transfer over to my struggle with depression. I will share with my co-workers that I am going on a date with a man or going to an LGBT-themed event with an almost belligerent pride, but am overwhelmed with fear in having to admit to those same people that I’m leaving slightly early to see my therapist or that I need to take some time off due to another episode.
