Today has been the worst day of Roseanne Barr’s comedic life, and no one is to blame but Roseanne herself. After numerous chances to watch her mouth, she officially pushed the envelope too far Tuesday morning when she said that Obama Administration official Valerie Jarret looked like a monkey from the “Muslim brotherhood.”
The network released a statement calling out the abhorrent behavior fo the comedian, effectively cancelling the new hit show reboot.
It is Roseanne’s mouth, led by her shrunken brain, that has caused her to, not only lose her new job, but to soil the iconic legacy she had built for herself with the original show, which was very liberal and inclusive.
So, why, just why, would Donald Trump Jr. retweet something Roseanne tweeted at Chelsea Clinton, comparing her to George Soros, a Jew, whom Roseanne said caused the deaths of Jews at concentration camps even though he was only a boy at the time.
Trump Jr. foolishly retweeted the following dash of ignorance from the elderly hack:
Now for the fact-checker.
According to Snopes:
The fact-check site continued their explanation:
“This allegation continues to make the social media rounds in the form of a black-and-white photograph of a young man — supposedly Soros — wearing an SS uniform (see above), accompanied by some version of this caption:
‘.. I give you George Soros. A SS in the National Socialist German workers party. Nazi party. He served under Adolf Hitler and Heinrich Himmler. He said it was the best time of his life. The destruction and agony around him was euphoric to him. This man was making policy with Hillary Clinton. And some of you think Trump is dangerous. Wow!’
Wow, indeed. But given his age, Soros couldn’t have joined the SS (whose minimum age requirement was 17) even if he had wanted to. Moreover, as a Hungarian Jew he couldn’t have met the SS requirement for pure “Aryan” heritage. Quite to the contrary, Soros and his entire family were obliged to hide their identities and pose as Christians to avoid being forcibly housed in ghettos, interned in concentration camps, deported, or killed during the 10-month Nazi occupation of Hungary beginning in 1944.
The miscaptioned photo is easily debunked using a reverse image search. The young man in the Waffen-SS uniform is actually Oskar Groening, a Nazi who served at the Auschwitz concentration camp from 1942 through the end of the war. More than 70 years after this photograph was taken, Groening was found guilty of being an accessory to the murder of at least 300,000 Jews.”
