President Trump Weighs In on Controversial Roseanne Tweet

Barr wrote in a now-deleted message that if the Islamist political movement "muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby = vj".

Barr's defenders insist that the racist tweet was just a joke.

The president's intervention came as Barr blamed her "Roseanne" co-workers for the axing of the sitcom.

After saying Tuesday she would stop tweeting, Barr resumed posting, blaming the effects of the sleep medication Ambien for her racist remarks in one of her more than 100 subsequent postings.

There has been a ton of reactions to USA network ABC's decision to cancel its popular sitcom Roseanne after its star, Roseanne Barr, tweeted a racist comment about former Barack Obama staffer Valerie Jarrett.

The tweets about "ambien tweeting" have since been removed and the comedian has gone on to say "I blamed myself. not ambien, stop lying [sic]".

He said of the exchange that Trump said: '"Oh my god, you've married up in the world".

Trump made the news about himself ... and ignored the racism aspect (again!) and painted himself as a victim.

"The president is simply calling out the media bias". I hallucinated a handful of times, and my friend (then-roommate) said I tried to talk to a ficus tree in our living room.

Tom Arnold also claimed that the President is not a fan of the actress, saying that Trump even called her 'disgusting'.

Trump's Wednesday tweets suggest he is focused on "other things", though - particularly the drama with "Roseanne" - a sign that the president is far more interested in talking about the culture wars rather than things related more closely to his job.

"As you know the president has been extremely focused", Sanders said.

Neither representatives for "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" nor a personal representative for Jimmy Kimmel immediately responded to INSIDER's request for comment.

The patent for Ambien, formally known as zolpidem, is held by French pharmaceutical company Sanofi-Aventis, which had something to say about Roseanne's tying the drug to the scandal. "I'm anxious about the people out there who don't have a circle of friends and followers who come right to their defense". Ms Jarrett, 61, responding to Roseanne's racist slur, said: "I think we have to turn it into a teaching moment". "You throw me under the bus. nice!" the comedian tweeted. "I will examine all of my options carefully and get back to U [sic]". It was praised for its realistic portrayal of working-class life.

Barr herself is a Trump supporter, and in the season opener of the "Roseanne" revival, viewers heard that Roseanne Conner had voted for Trump in the presidential election.
