Everyone needs to read what she said…
Roseanne Barr lately hit her former castmate Sara Gilbert, left-wing actress Debra Messing, and the hypocrisy of Hollywood over President Donald Trump while launching a new comedy tour.
Barr announced her upcoming “Mr. & Mrs. America” comedy tour will kick off at the Paramount Theater in Long Island, New York, with fellow artist Andrew Dice Clay scheduled to start on September 19.
Opening up to be fired from her own creation, Barr insisted that the catalyst for ABC’s choice to fire her was Sara Gilbert’s tweet.
Barr raised doubts in 2018 when she tweeted about former Obama operative Valarie Jarrett, who is black, in reference to the film Planet of the Apes. The former Rosanne show star apologized for the tweet after receiving criticism for her Twitter barb, but also said she never realized Jarrett was black and then blamed her tweet on a drug reaction to Ambien.
But Rosanne co-star Sara Gilbert did not cut her boss any slack and tweeted out that Barr’s tweet was “abhorrent.” That, Rosanne said, was the deciding factor for ABC.
“That’s the tweet that got the show canceled, to be honest,” Barr told the paper.
Barr added that she has no willingness to speak to Gilbert and clear the atmosphere, stating that without any thought, Gilbert struck first.
“When somebody just doesn’t care how their actions affect you, what’s there to talk about?” Barr said of Gilbert. “There’s nothing to talk about.”
But Bar added that she has doubts that the root of ABC’s rush to break links with her was her support for President Trump. Barr slammed Hollywood for its hate of both Trump and Israel.
“All of Hollywood, they just hate him, and they hate those of us who like him. There is no way around it,” she said. “So, yeah, I think they took me off because I liked him and I like him because I’m a Jew and he likes Israel.”
Barr also reveled in recent tweets by the president who slammed NBC sitcom star Debra Messing, who endorsed the idea that black supporters of President Trump are “mentally ill” — Trump said “Will Fake News NBC allow a McCarthy style Racist to continue? ABC fired Roseanne. Watch the double standard!”
….said what she did, even being on a much higher rated show, she would have been thrown off television. Will Fake News NBC allow a McCarthy style Racist to continue? ABC fired Roseanne. Watch the double standard!

Rosanne let out a long laugh as the Mail’s interviewer read to her Trump’s tweets in which he slammed Messing and mentioned Barr.
“It’s fun to go pop, pop, pop, pop, pop,” Rosanne joked about slapping Hollywood down in her new comedy set. “We have to do that if we want you know not be enslaved to them as a society today.”
