The rumors have been confirmed. Rosie O’Donnell did indeed pander to the lowest common denominator by doing the ole ching chong routine on The View on Tuesday morning. Thanks very much to Geraly for being all over this!
The hosts were discussing how Danny DeVito’s drunken appearance had made their show particularly popular, and that it was probably even being shown in outer Mongolia. Rosie immediately started in with some “ching chong ching chong,” her interpretation apparently, of the Mongolian language.
You can view the video here. Click on the video labeled, “The View – Hot Topics – Danny DeVito”. It’s about 3 minutes long and around the 2:06 mark Rosie starts her “ching chong” thing.
Update: Okay sorry that my write-up of it a little inaccurate. As you might have guessed, I haven’t had the chance to actually watch the video yet. Luckily for us, it’s already up on YouTube! Enjoy… Also, it even made it to Gawker.
