Rosie O’Donnell on ‘the official’ 9/11 story

“I still do not believe the official story.”

— “The View’s” new (but not new) co-host Rosie O’Donnell in a tweet responding to the question of whether she still believes in “9/11 trutherism” or conspiracy theories outlining the U.S. government’s alleged involvement in the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

O’Donnell’s previous tenure on the ABC talk show ran from 2006 to 2007 and featured frequent feuds, most notably with conservatives Donald Trump and fellow co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck. After a vicious “hot topics” bout with Hasselbeck, O’Donnell left “The View” before her contract was up in 2007. She returns to the table this fall.
