We can put Rosie O’Donnell down as a “no” for Bernie Sanders 2020 as he’s too old and too white. Sen. Kamala Harris is her candidate:
he is too old mike – we dont need another old white man – move on into now #BernieBye #harris2020

Rosie was responding to Michael Moore who didn’t endorse Bernie but said he likes what he sees:
Too early to endorse, but very happy to see Bernie Sanders running again! Medicare for All, the $15/hr minimum wage, free college tuition — all ideas pushed by Bernie in 2016 (they called him crazy 4 this) and now all polls show the MAJORITY of Americans take the same position!
