Rosie O’Donnell’s intense hatred for President Donald Trump did not stop her theater group from accepting funding from the Trump administration.
Rosie’s Theater Kids, founded by the comedian and actress in 2003, received $30,000 from the National Endowment for the Arts last month. O’Donnell’s theater group has now received $80,000 from the administration, led by a man whom the comedian calls a “racist, creep, conman, liar, rapist, fake.”
The new grant will fund theater training for kids during a summer and after-school program. Broadway performers will teach students dance, drama, and music.
