Roseanne Barr Denies She's Racist, Calls Valerie Jarrett Tweet a 'Stupid Joke'

'Roseanne' cancelled after Barr makes ’bad joke’ about Obama aide

Roseanne Barr Apologizes To 'Roseanne' Cast And Crew, Blames Ambien

Both posts, which Barr later deleted, were part of her response to the backlash over her since-scrubbed tweet calling Valerie Jarrett, a top aide in the Obama administration, the offspring of the "Muslim Brotherhood & 'Planet of the Apes'".

The president's latest missive came a day after he first criticized Iger - the CEO of Disney, ABC's parent company - for apologizing to Valerie Jarrett over a racist tweet from Roseanne Barr, but not apologizing to him.

"ABC knew this about her going in", Steve Schmidt, a former chief strategist for Senator John McCain's presidential campaign, said of Barr on "Morning Joe" Wednesday. - I just want to apologise to the hundreds of people, and wonderful writers (all liberal) and talented actors who lost their jobs on my show due to my stupid tweet.

Trump's tweet on Wednesday seemed to be influenced by an Entertainment Weekly recap of the interview.

Trump specifically complained about an erroneous report a year ago by an ABC investigative reporter Brian Ross, saying: "He tanked the market with an ABC lie, yet no apology". He tanked the market with an ABC lie, yet no apology.


One and a half years later, the Russian Federation controversy still dogs Trump and he still regularly bashes the media for its coverage of his presidency and its potential ties to the Kremlin.

In the flurry of tweets Thursday, she apologized to her "Roseanne" co-star, Jayden Rey. What she did and what she said is totally wrong. "Will I ever recover from this pain? omg", she tweeted later.

Call us insane, but it appears that Roseanne Barr has a hard time being accountable for her actions.

Barr ended her series of tweets by promising that she will be away from Twitter "for a while". I'm anxious about all the people out there who don't have a circle of friends and followers who come right to their defense-the person who's walking down the street minding their own business and they see somebody cling to their purse or walk across the street. The network then announced it was cancelling her top-rated sitcom. Trump tweeted that maybe he "just didn't get the call".
