Roseanne Barr explains why her tweet against Valerie Jarrett wasn’t racist

Barr made headlines after she tweeted in May that Jarrett, who is African-American and was born in Iran, was as though the "muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby".

Despite apologizing at times, Barr also said she felt the tweet was being mischaracterized and she indicated she felt like she had apologized enough for her actions.

Barr on Thursday night said that she "made a mistake. That's what was in my head", said Barr. "I never meant to hurt anybody or say anything negative about an entire race of people which I think, 30 years of my work can attest to", she said. And I'm sorry for the misunderstanding that caused my ill-worded tweet. I never meant that. "Why, you ask? Well, the answer is simple: Because I voted for Donald Trump, and that is not allowed in Hollywood". I'm a Jew and I have family that lives there.

Hannity was quick to point out that Barr was joking. "It was Memorial Day, I had 2 beers", she told Hannity.

"That is a tweet about asking for accountability from the previous administration about the Iran Deal", she added, "which Valerie Jarrett is the author of".

Here is Hannity handing Barr an opportunity to look good, and this is what she has to say? "I enjoy it." Later, she said she no longer believes she was sexually abused by her father even though she has gone on the record with those claims in the past.

Trump warns Iran of "consequences" in all-caps Twitter rebuke
On Sunday, Rouhani made a televised address in which he warned Trump not to escalate tensions with Iran. Iranian leaders reject USA claims about developing nuclear weapons and supporting terrorism.

Barr addressed the tweet - in which she compared former Obama official Valerie Jarrett to an ape - defending herself against charges of racism.

Jarrett, for her part, has largely sidestepped the controversy.

She expressed interest in talking to Jarrett, or perhaps working out a way to find a "teachable moment" in an encounter with her. "I thought she was Middle Eastern". "I took a vow with my god that I would always fight extremism".

ABC has since announced the show will return in October as a spinoff called "The Conners" with all the main characters except Barr, who will have no financial or creative involvement. I think the balance is more toward the good, ' she said.

Though Barr stayed relatively tame on her "Hannity" appearance, she has been fiery on her own YouTube channel and on social media.

"I remember when I had the 'Mo'Nique Show, ' and there were big, major black superstar talent that had white representatives and they told their talent, 'That show is too black and we really don't want you to go on there, '" Mo'Nique said.
