Former talk show host and ever-outspoken liberal Rosie O’Donnell took aim at the government’s response to the tragic train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio, and more specifically the EPA’s response. O’Donnell punctuated his argument with a reminder of the devastating toll that took place after 9/11.

Rosie O’Donnell Tells Ohio Don’t Trust the EPA
“I’ve been reading all over the news about this horrible train derailment and chemical spill in Ohio — toxic poison. Fish are dying, chickens are dying and animals are getting sick and people are getting sick, and then the EPA comes out with a very careless ‘everything’s fine. Don’t worry about a thing’ statement, and this Furious,” O’Donnell said in his Friday TikTok video.
“There is poison. He has poisoned millions of people. His life [are] Ruined… They have nowhere else to go.”
“I don’t trust the EPA. I don’t trust them. After 9/11, I don’t know how anyone could,” he said.
You may recall that it took 15 years after 9/11 for EPA chiefs under George Bush to admit they were “wrong” to tell New Yorkers that the air around Ground Zero was safe.
Just three days after the Twin Towers fell, EPA chief Christine Todd Whitman reassured the public, telling reporters: “The good news is that the air samples we’ve taken are at levels that don’t cause us any concern.”
For 15 years, Whitman maintained that he was simply passing on promises made by government scientists. Sound familiar?

‘The Left Is Screwed’ When You Lose Rosie O’Donnell
O’Donnell’s TikTok video quickly amassed over 400k views and thousands of comments. Many applaud the liberal celebrity for finally starting to “wake up.”
One commenter suggested that O’Donnell add other “3 letter government agencies” like the FBI and CDC to the list of agencies you can’t trust.
Houston freedom fighter Merissa Hansen tweeted a video of O’Donnell: “When you lose Rosie you know the left is screwed.”

The Give it a break! The star noted the responses and posted a second clarifying video. O’Donnell argues that he is not waking up but always feels this way in the wake of national tragedy, citing Columbine, 9/11, and Hurricane Katrina.
O’Donnell describes her feelings as, “Sympathy for my fellow man. Disappointment at a government that doesn’t care enough about its people. And frustration at the way corporate entities show impunity.
The latter is a nod to a comment in his original video: “This is a tragedy of epic proportions and criminal negligence on the part of that chemical and rail company. And nothing is being done about it. “
Notably, O’Donnell isn’t the first celebrity to shed light on the train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio. Last week, comedian Tom Green took to TikTok with his own warning about trusting the government.
It suggests that Canadian Americans don’t get caught up in recent material enough to miss what’s happening in Ohio or on the Epstein court records ceiling.

Biden Visits Ukraine; Trump visits Ohio
While the Ohio train derailment is garnering national attention from celebrities and the mainstream media using terms like “absolute crisis,” the Biden administration’s focus remains elsewhere.

While Biden is making his impromptu “historic” visit to Ukraine — at least that’s what the MSM is calling it — and urging Russia to scrap its nuclear deal with the US, Trump on Wednesday unveiled plans to meet with citizens of eastern Palestine in Ohio.
Of course Joe Biden is in Ukraine and not Ohio…
Because screw Americans.
— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) February 20, 2023
Fox News first reported that Trump would visit Ohio. Trump confirmed the visit on Truth Social, saying, “Great people who need help right now!”
Trump then continued to increase his support for the people of Ohio.

Donald Trump Jr. used the disagreement to take a pot shot at Biden, saying, “If our ‘leaders’ are too afraid to actually lead then real leaders will step up and fill the void.”

Trump Jr. isn’t the only one criticizing Biden. Trent Conaway, mayor of East Palestine, Ohio, sees little of Biden’s visit to Ukraine.
Ohio mayor featured on Fox News Jesse Waters Primetime Monday night, “That’s a big slap in the face. It tells you now that he doesn’t care about us.

Calling Biden’s surprise visit to Ukraine dangerous, Trump posted a strong response, saying, “If you watch and understand the moves Biden is making in Ukraine, he is systematically, but perhaps unknowingly, pushing us into World War III very soon. How crazy is that?”
No wonder America is going to hell in a handbag. We have a disaster here at home and yet Biden has Ukrainians ahead of Ohioans. All the while pushing us closer to global conflict.
There is a saying that comes to mind:
The grass is greener where you water. Tend to your own garden.
As long as the Biden administration continues to keep America last from its towering fortress, the rest will be stuck deep in the weeds.
