Roseanne Barr took to Twitter after she had decided to leave Twitter when her tweet went viral likening former President Barack Obama’s top aide, Valerie Jarrett to an ‘ape’.
“muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj”
Upon her quick return to Twitter, Barr stated,
‘I’m Not a Racist, I Never Was & I Never Will Be’ so there!”
Donald Trump weighed in on what Barr said, and as usual with Trump, he made it ALL about him.
President Donald Trump has broken his silence on the cancellation of “Roseanne.”
In a tweet, Trump noted that Robert Iger, who is chief executive of ABC’s parent Walt Disney Co., called Valerie Jarrett to say the network wouldn’t tolerate Roseanne Barr’s racist tweet about the former Obama adviser.
Trump wrote that Iger never called him to apologize for “the HORRIBLE statements” that have been said about him on ABC. Tweeted Trump: “Maybe I just didn’t get the call.”
Of course Trump would stand by one of his favorite racists especially since Roseanne Barr is everything Trump needs in a supporter; racist to a T!
Meanwhile, people are wondering what Valerie Jarrett had to say about all of this. Jarrett stated that she had been too busy to even know that Roseanne Barr had tweeted about her, but when asked for a response, had this to say, “
I feel “fine” but I feel concerned for people without “friends and followers who come right to their defense” who experience “ordinary examples of racism that happen every single day.”
“I think we have to turn it into a teaching moment.”
Unfortunately, as Roseanne Barr claimed her fellow cast members threw her under the bus, she also tried to throw the makers of the sleep aid, Ambien, under the bus by stating that she was “Ambien tweeting” while sleepless at 2:00a.m. when, apparently, racism took over. The makers of Ambien, fired back with: “Racism is not a side effect of Ambien. Though drugs have side effects, racism is not one of them with Ambien. That shit’s on you!”
And now that we are all distracted by that gutter trash and her racist tweets and whether or not her hillbilly, redneck, white trash show has been canceled or will be tweaked, we can forget about all the horrors of what is going on in the world, what with floods in the south, a volcano erupting on the mainland of Hawaii, storm systems forming early in the Atlantic Ocean that does not bode well for areas that were hard hit by severe storms last year and about the fact that the government lied again about the true numbers of Puerto Ricans who died thanks in part to Hurricane Maria. The government’s tally was 64 and anyone with more than two brain cells connected and working should have known that that was just a bunch of hooey. A new study by a group of independent researchers from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and other institutions estimates roughly 4,600 people died, many from delayed medical care.
We ALL know that racism is alive and doing extremely well and will never be on life support in AmeriKKKa. We ALL know that Donald Trump is racist as hell! We ALL know that shows like Roseanne appeal to a certain base even though I have heard that the show focuses on poverty and other social ills. I can only go on what I have read since I have never sat down and watched one episode of the old version of Roseanne, nor have I watched an episode of the reboot. I would not even if someone paid me to watch the likes of Roseanne Barr. Nevertheless, here in America, our lives revolve around what we see on TV and that is why I guess that every Black Friday, Americans can be seen beating each other up to purchase yet another TV so that they can watch a racist appeal to Donald Trump and those like him all the while disguising this with attempts to portray the lives of people in poverty who are trying to survive job loss, a lack of health coverage to cover major illnesses and other societal ills.
Many real people are on the verge of homelessness. Many real people have health problems and no health care coverage. Many real people go to bed homeless at night. Many real people will soon join the dead in Puerto Rico when new hurricanes form and lay waste to island nations while we sit somewhere and scream obscenities and racist remarks back and forth on some stupid entity like Twitter. This is indeed why I no longer despair FOR U.S. I despair OF U.S. When will you people ever learn that distractions distract you for a reason?
On May 29th, Starbucks closed their doors for four whole hours so that workers could be brought up to speed on racial bias which resulted in a new bathroom policy; anyone can use a Starbucks restroom even if they don’t buy anything and I am quite sure that we have heard the last of any racial bias issues coming from Starbucks. Yeah! I am that naive and right after that Roseanne Bar tweets, “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj” It is quite obvious that we have grown to embrace diversity! And if you believe this, then once again, I have some nice beachfront property located smack dab in the middle of a desert! It’s beautiful! And cheap!
