That this fat cow has managed to graze on the slopes of celebrity mediocrity for so long would be the funniest thing she'd ever managed were it not also so sad.

After many back-and-forth arguments during the Hot Topics segments about what happened to World Trade Center building #7 on September 11, 2001, it looks like The View is finally going to bring some experts in on the subject. In case you have missed it, Rosie O’Donnell has mentioned several times that the way that WTC 7 fell was suspicious, because it was not hit by an airplane filled with jet fuel like WTC 1 and 2. She has stated that the way that WTC 7 imploded onto itself at free-fall speed seems unlikely without outside aid, such as a controlled demolition. Elisabeth Hasselbeck stated that the building collapsed as a result of a combination of small fires inside WTC 7 which weakened the metal and the “volcanic force” from the collapse of the other two buildings.

O'Donnell openly admires the lunatic ravings of one Alex Jones, who, according to the New York Times's Alan Feuer:

set forth the central tenets of 9/11 Truth: that the military command that monitors aircraft “stood down” on the day of the attacks; that President Bush addressed children in a Florida classroom instead of being whisked off to the White House; that the hijackers, despite what the authorities say, were trained at American military bases; and that the towers did not collapse because of burning fuel and weakened steel but because of a “controlled demolition” caused by pre-set bombs.

O'Donnell has peddled such nonsense on The View, no doubt hoping to create a few feverish "9/11 skeptics" among the kaffeeklatsch-ing housewives of America. Check out the YouTube below in which dear Rosie says, "I do believe it was the first time in history that fire melted steel." You can also peruse some of her nightstand reading here.

And because I know some spud-faced inquisitor out there will post a comment asking, "well, why did the steel girders in the Twin Towers melt so quicky?," may I preemptively direct him or her to Popular Mechanics' expert debunking of all theories as to "what really happened" the day Al Qaeda went to war with the United States.
