I don’t expect many of you to have tuned in to Fox News earlier for Roseanne Barr’s interview with Sean Hannity, that’s why you have sites like this one. To filter that stuff and watch it for you.
If you did tune in, you were treated to a rambling mess of an interview that apparently featured in an apology from Barr to former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett for the racist tweet that brought her sitcom career to a halt. Of course, it quickly becomes apparent that this isn’t an apology at all and it is really just another attempt to make excuses for what was said. To this point, Barr has blamed Ambien, pointed to her history of activism, and even screamed that she thought Valerie Jarrett was white. Her latest line of thinking? It was not a racist tweet, it was a political statement according to Deadline:
“If she’s watching I’m so sorry that you thought I was racist and that you thought my tweet was racist,” Barr said, looking straight at the camera and addressing Jarrett in case she was watching.
“Because it wasn’t. It was political. I’m sorry for the misunderstanding that caused, my ill-worded tweet. And, you know I’m sorry that you feel harmed and hurt. I never meant that. And for that I apologize.
“I never meant to hurt anybody or say anything about an entire race of people which I think 30 years of my work can attest to,” Barr continued.
“Plus I’d tell her she’s got to get a new haircut. Seriously,” she added.
If you need a reminder of this political tweet, it goes something like this:
“Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.”
I’m not sure where the Iran deal was mentioned in there, but it certainly wasn’t around the Planet Of The Apes comment.
Hannity was also there to support her and defend the tweet himself, saying she sent it out at 2:30 AM, was on Ambien, and trying to draw out that she was once suffering from multiple personality disorder. He also added that she was on three kinds of anti-depressants every day.
The two also bonded over their love of Donald Trump and the haters that surround them, with Hannity saying folks at Fox News hate everything he says. That’s likely the only factual part of this dispatch from planet bullshit.
