"Roseanne" Canned

http://money.cnn.com/2018/05/29/medi...ton/index.html

I don't know if I would have fired her for this, but if it was really a joke, it was worse than her "National Anthem" thing a while back. But her tweets were stupid before this.

Just read some articles on this. Seems some of her George Soros tweets were equally repugnant.

Repugnant because she called Soros a Nazis. Thatís quite laughable because when the left calls Trump a Nazi you seem to be ok with that.

By the way Joy Behar from "The View" just recently called Christians mentally ill. Let me know when you all are ready to call for her canning and public apology.

Oh and the Joy's just keep on giving. Let's not forget Joy Reid, who made all sorts of fucked up comments about gays. Then lied and said that she got hacked and didn't post those comments. She's still working and still no public apology from her.

And let's not forgot the college professor who blew up twitter with fucked up comments about Barbara Bush, after her passing. The left screamed "free speech" on that one. Again no canning and no public apology.

Seems it's only a punishable offence when someone on the right says something inappropriate.

So delta is seems like you are loosly sticking up for Roseanne, or attacking people who are calling her out for being racist.

She's trash and always has been trash. Is it because trump said "her show is about us"?

Is it possible for you to not defend everything Trump or one of his supporters does no matter what?

Do you have any proof to backup your claim? Where the clip from "the view" where that is said? Any Joy Reid clips you can post that will prove your example?

So do you think she would have gotten "fired" if she had a hit TV show? Of course, and deservedly so. 2 wrongs don't make a right.

It's very well documented. She even called Mr. Pence to apologize.

Well, I'm not "the left", but I certainly condemned her for it. However, a tenured professor and an actor with a TV show are not analogous, for better or worse.

I've never seen the show, nor am I a fan of Roseanne, but that was a terrible comment to make about Jarrett. I don't see how CBS really had a choice after the comments she made, we simply cannot have shit like that in this day and age.

There are enough legitimate points to go after Jarrett for without going so low as commenting on her race or looks. That's just trash.

Behar responded: ďItís one thing to talk to Jesus. Itís another thing when Jesus talks to you. Thatís called mental illness, if Iím not correct, hearing voices.Ē

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.74f71cb00945


Well, if the comment from Omarosa was literal - if Pence thinks Jesus is actually speaking directly to him - that could very well be an indication of mental illness (auditory hallucination).

I'm certain, however, that if VP Pence ever even made that statement it was in a context of "Jesus speaking through me/using me to deliver His message", not that he believes he literally hears the voice of Jesus speaking to him.

And if someone wants to adopt a character who resembles this comedian very much I'll be happy to donate her.

So she didn't do what Delta was alleging. She made a specific comment about a specific person. Then when later confronted with her behavior, she made an apology. Yeah that sounds very different to the remarks by Roseanne on Twitter.

Delta, you are trying to make a false equivalency. Why are you purposely being dishonest?

Ten years ago my friend had the ugliest baby ever produced by a human. It is unfortunate for the child that the older mom has not exactly done a great job at enhancing her less endearing features.

As long as I feel like I feel, I won't join any sort of social media site. I don't trust myself enough. At one point I would snap and suggest the mother thinks before she buys clothes to the kid or matches peach with orange for class photos. I know the day would come so I stay away.

Being funny and making fun of an other person is easy especially if you don't know the individual personally. we feel these days that it's our right to hurt others and then we wonder why our kids are acting up like shit.
