TV personality Rosie O’Donnell rekindled the feud between her and GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump Friday, saying he is “not even qualified to run a game show.”

O’Donnell compared the presidential race to an “epic battle worthy of a new ‘Star Wars’ movie” in an interview on WABC Radio’s “Election Central with Rita Cosby.”

{mosads}”You have to decide. Are you going to be with the Force or are you going to be on the dark side?” O’Donnell said. “It’s your choice. Just like Harry Potter, he’s like Lord Voldemort. You know stay away from the dementor.”

Trump and O’Donnell have exchanged harsh words in the past, and when Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly asked Trump about calling women “fat pigs, dogs, slobs, disgusting animals,” Trump interrupted her with: “Only Rosie O’Donnell.” 

In the Friday interview, O’Donnell said she was “stunned” to be used “as a punch line with impunity” and praised Kelly for asking the question.

“The only person who had the guts to stand up to him about it was Megyn Kelly,” O’Donnell said. “Megyn Kelly was a superhero, fighter for the truth when she said that, and he revealed who he was with his answer.”

O’Donnell compared Trump to a Mafioso and called him an “uneducated bully, serial liar and a misogynist.”

“He is the worst representation of what the United States is or could be. He is everything we should reject as a nation,” O’Donnell said. “He’s like a bully for the mafia. Like he thinks that he can shut you up, like he’s Tony Soprano.” 

O’Donnell also criticized Trump’s GOP rival Ted Cruz.

“He’s not worth my time to pay attention to,” she said. “He seems even, if possible, more dangerous than Donald Trump because he’s an actual politician. He’s dangerous, as well.”

O’Donnell said she supports Hillary Clinton and sees Democratic rival Bernie Sanders as too idealistic.

“She will win and Bernie Sanders will concede,” O’Donnell said of the upcoming New York primary. “She will ask him to help her to get to the White House, which is the goal that will protect all of humanity as well as the nation’s reputation.”
