Rosie O’Donnell Dragged for Offering $4 Million to 2 GOP Senators If They Voted Against Tax Bill (They Didn’t)

The comedian tweeted she’d give $2 million to both Sen. Susan Collins and Sen. Jeff Flake

Rosie O’Donnell was ready to shell out $2 million dollars to two Republican U.S. Senators on Tuesday if they would vote against the GOP’s tax overhaul. Spoiler alert: they didn’t, and she’s being ripped apart on Twitter for her offer.

O’Donnell, who has been a long-time critic of President Trump and the Republican party, offered a cool $4 million in cash to Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine)  and Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) if they voted against the proposed bill.

“So how about this,” O’Donnell wrote. “i promise to give 2 million dollars to senator susan collins and 2 million to senator jeff flake if they vote NO NO I WILL NOT KILL AMERICANS FOR THE SUOER RICH.” She then asked them to direct message her adding, “no s–t 2 million cash each.”

Not only did the senators ignore her “offer” and vote for the bill (which has now passed the Senate and is on its way back to the House for a vote on a revised version), but many users dragged the comedian for what they deemed a bribe.

While you can make campaign contributions to influence politicians, it is not clear whether O’Donnell’s tweet was intended as a serious offer to Collins and Flake.
