White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders turned the table to the press when she was asked about President Trump's reaction to Roseanne Barr's racist tweet.
USA ON DAY
Roseanne Barr's racist tweet about Obama official Valerie Jarrett costs her an ABC show and support from most of her national Trump supporters in the media.
But not everyone turned back to the beleaguered comedian after her self-sustained PR nightmare (although Barr blames sleep pills). Several conservative figures went forward to defend Barr after she was fired, renouncing a sophisticated Hollywood culture and censorship in the name of a sumptuous political correctness.
When the news broke out that Roseanne reboot had been interrupted, Republican strategist Noelle Nikpour told Fox News Show Outnumbered Overtime "We live in a politically correct world right now."
"It's not about political correctness, it's racism," replied Fox News, Jessica Tarlov.
Nikpour said that Barr's tweet was "ugly" and "not nice" but she said, "let's just leave it there" and oppose Tarlo's cry to notice the tweetrasist. Opinion: Less Roseanne Barr, more Tom Wolfe – Republicans Need New Celebrities

"I do not understand that there is anything but freedom of expression," said host Faulkner. "It's extremely offensive, but it's just that." And she says in one of her tweets – there were three quick fires today – "It was a joke. It was an incorrect joke." "
" She's a comedian, "Nikpour agreed." She's got a very bad, angry sense of humor. Everyone knows she's a bit furious and a bit rough. "
2012 Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain said that ABC had" sought a reason to interrupt Roseanne . "
" Although the show was a success I think success in ABC did not think her conservative defense of some things was so popular and to get such grades, "Cain Fox Business Network told Trish Regan.

Former White House spokesman Anthony Scaramucci said, "When I was called a human pinkie ring and a goombah while in @Whitehouse as was considered acceptable comedy. Double standard. We soon stop the macro-strains for micro-aggressions soon. She made a joke of bad taste go on. "
"It's time for you to fight back on these THANK YOU POLICE and really shake them!" Right-conspiracy peddler and Sandy Hook deniter Alex Jones told Barr. "You've been to the show before and it's time for you to come back!"
Jack Posobiec, described by Wikipedia as "an American completely correct Internet spell and conspiracy theorist" pointed to what he sees as a double standard in "mainstream media".
"I'm a black man and I stand with @therealroseanne!" tweeted conservative commentator Oliver McGee. "Yes, she did a terrible joke, and she apologized. I see comedians, actors, etc doing the same joke and being applauded for it. It's outrageous."
"Keep your chip up my friend," said McGee to Barr. He also asked for a boycott of ABC.
"Roseanne made some racist comments, apologized for it and her show was removed from the air. Joy Behar, Joy Reid and Jimmy Kimmel make racist comments, constantly attacking this administration for their believe in god and yet they still have a platform without something new. LIBERAL BIAS! "said Trump chairman Ryan Fournier.
"Can you imagine that your entire day (or the week if you're a liberal) was destroyed because someone insulted you" tweeted radio host Bill Mitchell. "Man, it must be a horrible existence. Live like a snowflake on a planet with a sun."
"Roseanne is a radiant now," said Pizzagate conspiracy theorist Mike Cernovich. "Send her love. She needs it."
Daily Wire Contributor Michael Knowles said while Barr's tweet was in poor taste, "the most popular fur to burn her is mostly executed and motivated by the left-hand hysterical contempt for someone who even supports President Trump. "
Even President Trump did not & # 39; T expressly comes to Barr's defense, he meant that ABC was guilty of hypocrisy. Bob Iger, CEO of ABC's parent company Disney, called Jarrett to apologize for Barr's tweet, but Trump said that Iger never called him to apologize for all the "HORRIBLE statements" he made about the network.
Fox News personality Tomi Lahren warned "co-conservative" not to play "mental gymnastics trying to justify" Barr's tweet. "Come on. Error is wrong," she said.
"For all Trump supporters who were upset by the ABC / Roseanne double standard, I get it," Lahren tweeted . "Here's the matter, we know we can not get away with what the left can. We must be better."
All support on Twitter seems to have given Barr other thoughts about silently accepting her show's attitude.
"You make me feel like fighting back," she tweeted. "I will carefully examine all my options and come back to U."
