Roseanne Barr, a comedian, has been in hot water for making controversial statements while appearing on a podcast. She appeared on the Triggered with Donald Trump Jr. podcast, where she discussed her career, stand-up comedy, and calling out the woke mob. Trump Jr. went live on the video-sharing platform Rumble with his guest for about an hour and 20 minutes in a video titled “The Left Wants to Kill Comedy, but They’ll Never Stop Roseanne – TRIGGERED Ep.78.”
During their conversation, Barr spoke candidly about being “cancelled” and falling from stardom. She cited a tweet in 2018 that led to her downfall, which came in May 2018 when she commented on former White House aide Valerie Jarrett and said she resembled a byproduct of Planet of the Apes and the Muslim Brotherhood. She shared an online apology, stating that “Bob Iger” personally fired her, with ABC being part of the Disney group, and that the tweet was turned from a political comment into something that was seen as “racist.”
Barr went on to say that the Democrats had an issue with “classism,” making sure that the “poor” stayed poor and that it was “a miracle I was born poor and rose.” She stated that part of classism is racism, and Black and Jewish individuals should not vote for the Democrats in the future. A snippet from the interview was posted on X, formerly Twitter, causing quite a stir when it shared her statement: “I don’t think anything is going to wake up the Jews and blacks who vote Democrat. They’re so severely mind controlled. I don’t care what stupid ass Roseanne says. I’m a free-thinking black man and I vote the way that I want. I’m an educated black male adult who is capable of making informed decisions on my own.
Comments of disbelief continued to pour in on the post, including: “This outright racism and anti-semitic commentary is brought to you by the Trump campaign.” The full interview on the streaming platform Rumble has been viewed 204,000 times.
