Actress and comedian Roseanne Barr has been using her newly found exposure from the updated ABC show, Roseanne to fawn over Donald Trump. If that was not unattractive enough, she has been sending out Twitter bombs aimed at the previous administration. Her latest act, though, was a huge surprise.
Barr called the Democratic-leaning investor, George Soros, “a nazi.” Then, the comedian attacked President Barack Obama’s former senior adviser Valerie Jarrett with an especially ugly tweet.
The comedian described Jarrett as “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj,” according to The NY Daily News. Yet, when the negative feedback began, she said it was just a “joke.”
Barr reacted to all the negative response she received with a surprise apology:
‘I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me-my joke was in bad taste.’
After she wrote that apology, she appeared to reconsider how much damage she had done on Twitter and tweeted:
‘I apologize. I am now leaving Twitter.
Jarrett’s parents are both African-American, even though she was born in Iran. Barr was trying to connect Obama’s advisor to a Muslim Brotherhood, referring to a Sunni Islamist group that has its headquarters located in Egypt.
Barr was not finished. She rolled out a tweet about President Bill Clinton’s and former secretary of state, Hillary Clinton’s daughter, Chelsea Clinton. The comedian tweeted that the younger Clinton married one of Soros’ nephews.
Then, Clinton tweeted back that she was wrong. Yet, that seemed to fuel Barr. She tweeted that the liberal Soros was a “Nazi.”
The actress stood up for Trump, when he took heat for his treatment of immigrant children:
‘President Trump has freed so many children held in bondage to pimps all over this world. Hundreds each month. He has broken up trafficking rings in high places everywhere. notice that. I disagree on some things, but give him benefit of doubt-4 now.’
