Roseanne Barr Says She’s Not Against Valerie Jarrett ‘Personally’

Roseanne Barr is back again speaking about Valerie Jarrett, this time she claims she is not against the former Obama adviser “personally”.

Recall that Roseanne got canceled by ABC because of her racist tweet targeted at former Jarrett(she compared Jarrett to an ape). And now in hew chat on the Rabbi Shmuley Podcast, she delivered a message to Jarrett, saying that she’s against the former Obama advisor’s work and policies, she’s not against her as a person.

“My sister helped me because she’s a Torah student, too,” Barr said in an interview shared over the weekend, “and she helped me to say the work of your hands…makes me feel threatened. I shouldn’t have said, you know, like what you said—don’t make it personal. But you kind of have to when it’s, like, the work of your hand is what I’m against—not you personally—but the work of your hands.”

When she got cancelled, Roseanne claimed she had been “Ambien tweeting”—arguing she was “not a racist, just an idiot who made a bad joke.”

And in an episode of the Rabbi Shmuley Podcast, she broke down in tears, saying, “Of course I’m not a racist. I’m an idiot. I might have done something that comes across as a bigoted and ignorant, and I know that that’s how it came across. I ask for forgiveness because I do love all people, I really do.”

Sobbing, she continued, “I have black children in my family. I never would have wittingly called any black person and say they are a monkey. I just wouldn’t do that, and I didn’t do that and that people think that I did that. It just kills me.”

Now, she claims that comparing Jarrett to an ape wasn’t racist, that she is only against the former Obama advisor’s work and policies.

We hear.
