It Roseanne had made the exact same comments about someone within the Trump circle, she'd still have a job.
That is absolutely true, as exhibited by scores who HAVE baselessly called Trump racist and called many of his team even worse. The double standard is nauseating.
If she were a leftist and made the same remark about (say) Ben Carson, she would have apologized, the crew/production would send a statement and then they would renew 5 more seasons because they agree with her thinking.
Oh and given her the key to West Hollywood and speak at the Democrats fundraisers for “being brave”.
Wait, wouldn't he be all over her whining how she's disrespectful and she has no class because she attacked someone in his cabinet like that guy in Hamilton? Then talk in the third person in how HE'S insulted, but nobody knows how the insulted feels.
Would it be wrong for him to protect his own people? Besides, what does that have to do with the question?
They'd put her on the View
She'd pale in comparison to the things they say there.
Well, I think you’d first have to have a few more racial minorities in the Trump White House for it to be a level playing field on which you could actually compare the two... so, no.
Why does it matter who is in the White House? It is a hypothetical question, and you are avoiding it. No one questioned when Obama hired mostly black people, even though they are only 12% of the population. Was that racist? Were they truly the best people for the jobs? Or the best African-American people for the jobs? I'm so sick of all the identity politics. Trump has hired some of the most talented women, including Nikki Haley, an Indian-American woman. Sarah Huckabee Sanders gets attacked for her looks on a daily basis, including to her face at the correspondents dinner. Why is that OK?
Without a doubt.
Probably true. Insecure Democrats can’t take a joke directed at them.
Hard to know because there are so few minorities in the administration, but if she compared Ben Carson to an ape, yeah same result.
Have you seen the horrible things said about Sarah Huckabee Sanders looks? I know she's not black, but aren't we not supposed to attack women for their looks?
But Roseanne is a woman too. This poll is poorly worded, because there’s really no one in the administration to say this about.
Ben Carson? Nikki Haley? I worded it exactly how I wanted.
Disagree. ABC would have responded the same way.
If she had made the same tweet about Ben Carson I think she would get a similar amount of flak.
In fact a comedian , Wanda Sykes, actually did do that; called the president an orangutan and was never fired.
Double standard for democrats, clearly.
In fact, she worked on the show and said she wouldn't be coming back because of Rosen news tweets.
Calling the president an orangutan because he obsessively over fake tans=/=Using a racial slur.
Fuck off with this stupidity.
The show sucks and it was only a matter of time before it was cancelled anyway.
I thought it had moments of funniness, and was at least as good as most of the crap on TV nowadays.
It had good ratings, from what I understand.
Wow, how much more could you miss the point?
I didn’t watch the show after the first episode and I Don’t follow Roseanne on any social media sites.
