Few are unfamiliar with the Christmas stress from the rude brother-in-law, the opinionated mother-in-law or someone like that.
This holiday season, however, one celebrity started there, and with a greeting to House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., went straight over the edge of the cliff.
"Paul ryan – don't talk about Jesus after what u just did to our nation – u will go straight to hell u screwed up fake altar boy #JUDASmuch," said Rosie O'Donnell.
The Washington Examiner reported the "harsh Christmas tweet."
The paper said the comedian’s "pointed attack was in response to a brief Christmas message Ryan delivered in a Twitter video: 'At the end of each year, no matter how short — or long — it may feel, there is always Christmas. Waiting for us is that sense of wonder the shepherds felt when the angels appeared in the night sky to herald the birth of a Savior.'"

It was only a few days earlier when O'Donnell, as the Examiner reported, "attempted to bribe Republicans Sens. Jeff Flake and Susan Collins with $2 million cash to vote against the GOP's tax reform bill, which ultimately passed and signed into law."
Her plea then was: "so how about this I promise to give 2 million dollars to senator susan collins and 2 million to senator jeff flake if they vote NO NO I WILL NOT KILL AMERICANS FOR THE [SUPER] RICH."

Ryan's Twitter statement sparked a long list of frenzied reactions, including the far-from-biblical, "Jesus told me He hates you."
