Rosie O’Donnell’s son, Parker, has decided to pursue a military career at the Citadel. OMgosh, he’s going to school in the South! Yes, Rosie tried to talk him out of it. The young man had a solid answer for his mom when she asked him ‘why.’ And another OMgosh moment: looks like she may have had to give him tiny little toy soldiers when he was just a young boy.
Rosie O’Donnell’s 18-year-old son, Parker, has started a military career because, as O’Donnell noted, “how do you annoy your left-wing, liberal, pacifist mother? You become a big military man.”
O’Donnell, a Bush-bashing, 9/11 truther joined the women of “The View” on Friday for a return visit to the talk show she once co-hosted. While O’Donnell said she is proud of her son, who has been accepted into the Citadel, she admitted to grilling him on why he would want to do such a thing. His response, according to the uber-liberal entertainer:
“Only in America, Mom, could somebody like you who came from a horrible childhood, grow up and adopt kids like me who needed a family and I owe something to this country.”
Humor prevailed as she shouted into the camera, ”No, my son. You owe something to me!” (Do you remember her 2007 remark about terrorism and U.S. troops? Read it and watch the video here)
“Truth is, since he was a little boy, that’s his area of interest. The same way I love Streisand and Bette Midler and entertainment, he can tell you any general in any war, what kind of tanks they had, what the battles were like,” O’Donnell, who has three other children, said. “So I finally gave in and truthfully, he’s excelling and he’s very happy.”
