She added her seven-year-old son heard Trump?s words on the radio and was concerned.?I love when people say you?re fat, like you don?t know, it?s always the first comment off someone who disagrees with you if you happen to be on the plus side — ?You?re fat!? I?m like yeah? It?s ok.? ?It?s the last bastion of a coward,? fellow ?The View? co-host Joy Behar added. ?They know where to get you.?In fact, more than Rosie?s son have expressed concern over Trump branding the talk show host as ?fat.?
