Rosie O'Donnell: 'Available' to play Steve Bannon on SNL

Rosie O'Donnell may have offered fans the first glimpse of what she might look like if she plays Steve Bannon on "Saturday Night Live".

Rosie O'Donnell's Twitter account on February 9, 2017.

She also tweeted saying, "Alec has Trump - Melissa has Spice - I would need a few days to prepare - so if called - I will be ready".

The portrayal of Mr Bannon by O'Donnell would be seen as particularly provocative to President Trump.

Mr Trump was lampooned by the show last week, depicted as a pawn of Mr Bannon. More recently, Trump insulted O'Donnell during several Republican debates when he was running for president. And which woman does Trump hate most in the world?

Because the photo merely plunks the face of the former host of The View in the center of a shot of Bannon's head at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, the transformation is somewhat incomplete.

While Spicer publicly expressed mild displeasure with McCarthy's bullish, gum-chomping, fact-concocting impersonation of him, "it was Spicer's portrayal by a woman that was most problematic in the president's eyes", sources close to Spicer told Politico.

Now, O'Donnell seems eager to find out how Trump would react to having one of his female arch-enemies portray his top advisor. Trump has made his dislike of SNL's satirical skits obvious via Twitter following SNL's "coverage" of the election and presidency.
