This piece of human offal...


is now, like her hero, President Spanky, blaming something else for her racist Tweet that got her worthless teevee show cancelled:

BEVERLY HILLS, CA - MARCH 10:  Actress Roseanne Barr attends The Paley Center For Media's 2014 PaleyFest Icon Award announcement at The Paley Center for Media on March 10, 2014 in Beverly Hills, California.  (Photo by Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty Images)

via Daily Kos:

She tweeted: "guys I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me. It was 2 in the morning and I was ambien tweeting -- it was memorial day too -- i went 2 far & do not want it defended -- it was egregious Indefensible. I made a mistake I wish I hadn't but...don't defend it please." She cited Ambien again in a later tweet, saying, "Not giving excuses for what I did(tweeted) but I've done weird stuff while on ambien -- cracked eggs on the wall at 2am etc." 

 Oddly, she later deleted all of her references to the medication. Nevertheless, Ambien became the #1 trending topic on Twitter on Wednesday morning. Barr's explanation was deemed laughable.

She deleted the Ambien references after being widely mocked online. Sanofi US, the pharmaceutical company which manufactures the sleeping medication, hit back HARD.

People of all races, religions and nationalities work at Sanofi every day to improve the lives of people around the world. While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication.

Let's not forget this piece of racism she wrote about another African-American woman just four years ago. Barr is a disgusting racist who absolutely meant what she wrote in both Tweets. This is Trump's America, and he's made every two-bit bigot comfortable in smearing and dehumanizing African-American men and women:


Sorry Roseanne, you can't blame medications for your "mistake." The reason youTweeted that pile of crap about Valerie Jarrett is not  because of Ambien. The reason for the Tweet is your toxic racism that oozes from every pore in your bigoted body.  You are a nasty woman, devoid of human decency and dignity.

Now get lost and stay there.

And, of course, President Spanky makes the firing of Barr about HIM!

Let's not forget, before the excuses come, how conservatives said Patrick Kennedy was full of BS when he was in an accident in DC. It wasn't possible they said, for him to lose control like he said he did. For them, his excuse was all a cover up and not even a plausible excuse or reason for his wreck.

I'm sure before I finish typing this, ppl who spoke ill of Kennedy will be working overtime to excuse Barr. Either because of Ambien or reasons like we see in this all too typical quote...

"You can’t say A THING that EVERYBODY DOESN”T LOVE anymore….got to be so careful it’s sickening. I LONG for a really good insult, really good homophobic, racist remark, because , in my younger years, gays and minorities would say “F YOU!” And that was it! The insulter, no matter how hideous it was, was told OFF….DONE!"

A longing for homophobic and racist remarks. That's the conservative mindset today.

That said, as Ducky pointed out elsewhere, I am trying to wrap my head around why Joy Reid is still on the air at MSNBC.

Apparently both Barr and tRump can trace their lineage to the same line of troglodytes.

DaveI just read this comment on the Mother Ship concerning what Barr wrote about Valeri Jarrett:

"Barr’s implications about Jarrett are no more offensive than much of what we hear in rap “music” and not entirely inaccurate."

"...not entirely inaccurate." The racist who wrote that says it is "not entirely inaccurate" to refer to an African-American woman as: “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.”

The person who wrote that it's not "off the mark" to refer to an African-American as an ape means this: Comparing African-Americans to apes is embedded in American racism and a way to dehumanize A.A.s so they can be demeaned and devalued. Barr and the people who comment at the Mother Ship are racist trash who don't deserve to be called Americans. They demean the word "American."

Many of them Shaw demean the word Christian.

• In the social media age, every minute in corporate crisis management counts.
The praise the network received after swiftly axing its hit sitcom over a racist tweet could inspire other businesses facing public relations disasters. Our reporter spoke with communications experts about some of the lessons.

We also looked at the pressures facing the writers and other staff members on “Roseanne.” Although they were heartened by the show’s success, Roseanne Barr’s often divisive posts on Twitter were a growing distraction. “She would tweet stuff, then apologize and get off Twitter, and then it would get better,” an executive producer said. “And then it would blow up again.”

• President Trump addressed the dispute on Wednesday, saying that he, too, deserved an apology from ABC. The network had apologized to Valerie Jarrett, the subject of the tweet that got Ms. Barr’s show canceled.

I watched the show one time for about five minutes and she may be the worst actress ever to have her own show. No loss to entertainment here and BTW she has always been a wacko.
I do agree that djt should have said something about her tweet even if he said this is a learning moment of what not to feel and say.
Having kimmie in the office just shows his affection for porn stars. As to teddie, a no talent has been.
