Roseanne apologizes directly to Valerie Jarrett, then mocks her looks on 'Hannity'

Roseanne Barr disputes racist claims: 'I'm not that person'

In a wide-ranging interview with Sean Hannity on Thursday night, Roseanne Barr attempted to defend her tweet about Valerie Jarrett ("muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.") that got her fired two months ago from her sitcom.

ABC dropped Barr in May, shortly after she posted that tweet about Jarrett.

Roseanne Barr talks with Fox News talk show host Sean Hannity while being interviewed during a taping of his show, Thursday, July 26, 2018, in NY.

She then suggested, as she has previously, that she didn't know Jarrett was an African American: "No, I didn't know - like a lot of Americans including a lot of people of all types, they didn't know either".

Farmers for Free Trade, an agricultural-industry advocacy group, also criticized the administration's proposal. Except it was the trade war Trump - not other world leaders - started that led to the retaliatory tariffs.

Also in the interview, Barr continued to explain her reasoning behind the tweet, stressing that it wasn't racist but meant to be taken as political. She said on Wednesday she did not intend to watch Barr's interview.

ABC, which had been criticised for signing a deal with someone well known for controversial remarks on social media, was praised for its swift action in removing her.

She added that the first few times she left her home following her firing from ABC she said 'never in my career of 30-something years have I felt the love and support of people on the street than I do now'. But she also expressed pride in the ratings success that the "Roseanne" revival had, saying, "They can't take that away from me no matter what's happened". She described her shock when she first found out that the tweet had been interpreted as a racial epithet.

She reluctantly addressed Jarret while looking into the camera, saying: "I'm so sorry that you thought I was racist and that you thought my tweet was racist, because it wasn't".

The men in green finished the tournament in some style, defeating Australia 24-14 in the Challenge Trophy final in San Francisco. France's reward for their upset of Australia is a meeting with mighty New Zealand on Saturday in the last eight.

Barr said Thursday she no longer believes her father sexually abused her, but believes she was emotionally abused by both her parents. "I said put it out there", she said. "People say that about me all the time".

Addressing Jarrett directly, the comic said she "never meant" to cause hurt. During the live interview, he brought up both her issues with depression and multiple-personality disorder and her previous claims she was sexually abused by her father. I've apologised and explained and asked for forgiveness.

However, Barr also told Hannity: "I am a creative genius, and this is not a good feeling for an artist to be treated this way, and it's not a good feeling for a citizen, either".

Hannity devoted his entire, hourlong show Thursday to his talk with Barr. But there's one thing she insists she won't be losing anytime soon.
