Updated Friday, July 20 at 1:34 PM EDT: Well, here’s a predictable plot twist.

TMZ reports Roseanne Barr will host her own “talk show” on her YouTube channel—and that clip of her screaming about how she thought Valerie Jarett was white was just a sample of what’s to come.


She’ll be talking to close friends and family, so fans (or whoever’s going to watch this never-ending dumpster fire) can get a raw, unfiltered and complete look at Barr, her life, and her views.

So basically, MAGA-Red Table Talks, for the “Build a Wall” set. More screaming about nonsense to come.


Roseanne Barr is still upset about the fallout over a racist Valerie Jarrett tweet she posted (and apparently, people are still asking her about it.)

In a new video posted to her YouTube, the “comedian” goes off about the tweet one more time—this time screaming full force at the camera that she thought Barack Obama’s friend and former senior advisor to the president (or, “that bitch” as Barr calls her) was white.

“I’m trying to talk about Iran! I’m trying to talk about Valerie Jarrett about the Iran deal,” Barr screams.


“That’s what my tweet was about. I thought the bitch was white, goddammit,” she says, facing the camera. “I thought the bitch was white. Fuck!”

It’s hard to tell what provoked Barr’s reaction in the video—someone appears to be talking to her about another video or script when Barr starts ranting about the tweet. According to Page Six, an interviewer asks her about the notorious tweet, in which she wrote that Jarrett (“VJ”) was the product of the Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes. That interviewer is not audible on the video, however.


After apologizing for the tweet, blaming it on Ambien, losing her ABC show, and being shut out of a spinoff of that show (the cast of Roseanne will return to ABC as The Connors—sans Roseanne), Barr has tried to recast the tweet as criticism of Jarrett’s “anti-Semitic” policies. In a twist of Roseanne logic that I will not even try to explain, Barr said the Planet of the Apes reference was some sort of anti-Semitic critique (Barr is Jewish).


Now, Barr—the same person who’s spent years trawling the internet reading about and sharing wild-ass conspiracy theories—says she has no idea Jarrett was a black woman.

Lord. This bitch.
