Rosie O’Donnell: Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders are just ‘too old’ to support

Rosie O’Donnell attended the GLAAD Media Awards in NYC to support her longtime friend Madonna as the Queen of Pop accepted the Advocate for Change Award. The women have been friends for decades, ever since co-starring together in the 1992 hit “A League of Their Own.”

Rosie opened up about their friendship to “Extra’s” Special Correspondent Megan Ryte, saying, “That’s a long friendship and that is a longer career. She is an astonishing human being.” Rosie also shared her thoughts on the political landscape. She explained, “We as gay people… the concept that we would have a major candidate as a gay man with his husband is mind-boggling to me. It probably felt similar to when Barack Obama was elected and people were like, ‘What, America? We are going to have a black President?’ There’s no thinking for it.”

She added, “Kamala Harris, she has my attention, she has my enthusiasm, and she has my belief in her. I hope that she pushes right through and starts to lead the Democratic Party towards impeachment, which is by all means justified.”

O’Donnell went on to say, “I have said my feelings about [Joe] Biden and Bernie [Sanders] being too old; I don’t think octogenarians need apply for the presidency. If people say I’m ageist, maybe I am… I think it should be disqualifying.”
