Trump weighs in on cancellation of 'Roseanne'

The US network on Tuesday cancelled hit sitcom "Roseanne", after star Barr fired off a racist tweet against former White House adviser Valerie Jarrett, who was one of Barack Obama's closest aides.

As Barr continued tweeting well into early Thursday morning, she retweeted a post that defended her, saying: "While Kimmel, Olbermann, Behar, Sykes & the list goes on, vehemently attack & lie about all of us & @POTUS daily, others like Rosie are destroyed for far less".

Roseanne Barr blamed sleeping pills for the racist tweet that got her ABC show canned.

"ABC lost maybe $1 billion from this; this show was grinding out money hand over fist and they lost it all because somebody didn't say, "Get that phone out of her hand", Arnold says.

Barr was also dropped by her talent agency, ICM Partners, shortly after ABC's announcement.

Hours later, she tweeted a contradictory statement. She remains a loose cannon even as she sinks into the right-wing swamp. "And then if her insane tweets came out, she could point to that and say, "But I have taken a step back".

President Donald Trump again asked Bob Iger, the CEO of Disney, which owns ABC, to apologize to him for errors the news network's reporting on his presidency after it had canceled a show and apologized to viewers.

Barr has since stated that she would be addressing the entire controversy on Joe Rogan's podcast, "The Joe Rogan Experience", this upcoming Friday. "I just wish ABC had not thrown two of the greatest actors in the world out with me-Laurie and John", Barr tweeted Wednesday night.

Barr is also not the first to use what has come to be known as the "Ambien defense". She said that Robert Iger, chief executive of ABC parent Walt Disney Co., called to apologize and told her before it became public that the show was being canceled. "I want us to be better than that, that's what I mean by the cream rises to the top that we don't need to do that".

Arnold said he and the President met at a dinner party in 2005 with his new wife Shelby Roos.

And while it seemed like Kimmel was coming from a good place with his comments, the TV host was quickly criticized for his words. "She knows he's an asshole".

She empathised with Trump's criticism on social media. "It is a weird thing". "And with that said, I have an idea that I think makes this work for everyone", he explained. "Everyone has always been scared shitless of her". "One stupid joke in a lifetime of fighting 4 civil rights 4 minorities, against networks, studios, at the expense of my nervous system/family/wealth will NEVER b taken from me".
