Walters Backs Rosie, Calls Trump "Pathetic"

Barbara Walters, who had attempted to remain above the fray in the Donald Trump-Rosie O'Donnell donnybrook, came out firmly on Rosie's side Wednesday. After Rosie read Trump's latest missive in which he claimed that Walters had told him that working with Rosie was like "living in hell," Walters remarked, "That poor, pathetic man." The remark touched off cheers from her audience and high-fives from Rosie. (Walters had selected Trump as one her "10 Most Fascinating People of 2006.") In a statement sent to the syndicated TV show The Insider, Trump shot back, "They didn't even have the courage to mention me by name. It was sad to see Barbara read her statement off a cue card. Rosie just pushed her out like a ... puppet." Later, he told the New York Times, "Barbara is a sad case. This has revealed the real Barbara," then added without explanation, "I know a lot about Barbara."
