On Wednesday night, two warring factions — Ivanka Trump and Rosie O’Donnell — met at our nation’s Versailles (Nobu) to make peace. And although we’ll never know exactly what was said that historic night, apparently it moved O’Donnell to artistic expression.
The next day she published a poem on her blog about the run-in. Titled “8 million to one,” it describes her mind-set going into the meeting as well as what passed between her and Ivanka, whom she called “the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen”:
i walked the 5 steps toward her table
she smiled genuinely
her husband was warm and gracious
i told her of my children
some truths about myself
my pain and shame
she was absurdly kind
“i just wanted u to know”
i said in a shaky quiet voice
i then made my way down the large wooden stairway
into my waiting car
“8 MILLION TO ONE gives me all the feels …” one commenter wrote, which pretty much sums it up.
