Here’s What Trump Had to Say About the Roseanne Barr Scandal

Do not be deceived–the mainstream media is not shocked by Roseanne’s words, they’re thrilled by them.

Trump has spoken out on the Roseanne Barr scandal and, considering the media were already having a field day with the story, his comments have most certainly fueled at least two more days of this already hotly discussed and endlessly covered story.

The most remarkable thing about Roseanne’s tweet and the subsequent firestorm that proceeded was not, in fact, Roseanne’s poorly thought out joke about Valerie Jarrett, the senior advisor to the Obama administration, but the glee the media have had on reporting on it.

Do not be deceived–the mainstream media is not shocked by Roseanne’s words, they’re thrilled by them, and by the looks of Jarrett on her media appearances, she is too.

Liberals absolutely love when they can use one isolated incident to call all conservatives racist and, of course, blame it all on Trump.

Trump, apparently unable to contain his opinion on the matter, tweeted out yesterday that “Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that ‘ABC does not tolerate comments like those’ made by Roseanne Barr. Gee, he never called President Donald J. Trump to apologize for the HORRIBLE statements made and said about me on ABC. Maybe I just didn’t get the call?”

As you can imagine, the media’s focal point shifted immediately to the fact that he did not address Roseanne’s anathema comments about Valerie Jarrett looking like “Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes had a baby”, which many perceived, understandably, as quite racist considering Jarrett is a woman of color.

Sarah Sanders, asked on the matter, said of Roseanne that “nobody is defending her comments,” which she called “inappropriate.” She did add, however, that Trump is frustrated by the “double standard” in the media.

“The president is pointing to the hypocrisy in the media, saying that [sic] the most horrible thing about this president and nobody addresses it,” she said, pointing to several recent examples of ABC personalities making scathing comments about the President.

It appears, however, that pointing out this double standard in the media is all Trump wants to say. Sanders said he would not weigh in on the cancellation of ‘Roseanne’ from ABC.

“That’s not what the president is looking at. That’s not what he’s spending his time on. And I think that we have a lot bigger things going on in the country right now, certainly that the president is spending his time when it comes to policy,” she told reporters.

If there’s one true statement we can extract from this whole mess, Sanders just said it: we have a heck of a lot of bigger things going on in the country right now.

Southern Restaurant Scorched After Refusing to Serve Unvaccinated People

The unvaccinated are quickly becoming second class citizens in America.

In these late-stages of the pandemic, there are a number of emerging plot lines that almost seem more controversial than those that we experienced at the beginning of this fiasco, and it makes us wonder if some of it isn’t just for show. For instance, in the restaurant industry, where just about every businesses owner is struggling mightily, there are a number of different approaches to dealing with this latest “delta” variant of COVID-19.  This is of particular note now that many establishments had reopened during the lull in cases, and are now hanging on for dear life during “delta”. But one restaurant in the deep south has thrown their prosperity aside, and are making the controversial decision to serve only vaccinated customers. An Atlanta restaurant is making the bold decision to serve only customers who are fully vaccinated. Argosy Restaurant and Bar, located in East Atlanta Village, is one of the first businesses in Georgia to mandate with signs that say “No Vax, No Service.” The company owner made the decision earlier this week after he and several of his employees, who were all fully vaccinated, contracted the virus as breakthrough cases. The owner has suggested that these breakthrough cases were worse for business than treating the unvaccinated as though they are second class citizens. “We did it strictly as a business decision after multiple staff members tested positive,” said restaurant owner Armando Celentano. “We had to close down during a busy weekend, losing out on tens of thousands of dollars.” The decisions certainly stirred up a great deal of conversation on social media, where the restaurant received both praise and criticism for its decision.

US Women’s Soccer Team Skips Representing U.S.A. at Opening Ceremony

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the Olympics opening ceremonies.

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the opening ceremonies at the Tokyo Olympics Friday. The famously anti-American soccer team claimed that they could not attend because they were scheduled to attend practice during the opening event, according to WXIA-TV. “Obviously we can’t be there, I don’t know who scheduled us to practice at this time,” chief anti-American team star Megan Rapinoe told the media. The women’s soccer team was all about protesting against the U.S.A. during its first Olympics game this week but lost to New Zealand in a crushing 3-0 final. Rapinoe added that this year’s gams are different than past games. “It looks quite different and feels quite different than in the past, but all of us are thrilled to be here,” she said. Team members Abby Dahlkemper and Rapinoe enacted a lame “private parade” and posted it to Twitter: https://twitter.com/USWNT/status/1418557013739536390 The America-hating women’s soccer team was not the only American team that skipped the opening ceremonies. Both the women’s and the men’s U.S. gymnastics teams also skipped the ceremonies. They similarly held their own version of the parade” https://twitter.com/InsideGym/status/1418539840564572160 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.
