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.

Published

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.

Beto O’Rourke Drops Bombshell About Connection To Slavery

Where’s the liberal outrage?

Published

on

In a move that should, if the left were consistent, spell the end of his political aspirations, Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke revealed that both he and his wife are descendants of slave owners. Yes, a consistent application of the beliefs of the modern-day progressive should see Beto dropping from the race and spending the rest of his life attempting to atone for the sins of his ancestors. Probably not going to actually happen though. You know, because hypocrisy or something. via The Daily Wire: The failed Texas Senate candidate, who is losing ground in the presidential race, made the revelation in a Medium post, saying that he was recently given documents that revealed his family’s past. “A paternal great-great-great grandfather of mine, Andrew Cowan Jasper, owned these two women in the 1850s,” O’Rourke wrote. “There are also records showing that a maternal great-great-great grandfather, Frederick Williams, most likely owned slaves in the 1860s (“most likely,” because we are not certain that the Frederick Williams who is my ancestor and the Frederick Williams who owned slaves are the same person, but there’s enough circumstantial data to lead me to conclude that it’s likely).” “Records also showed that Amy had an ancestor who owned slaves and another who was a member of the Confederate Army,” O’Rourke added. O’Rourke’s claim comes after the media last week tried to tie Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s opposition to reparations to the fact that his great-great-grandfathers owned slaves. When the media tried to push that narrative they were met with the fact that former President Barack Obama’s ancestors were slave owners. Sen. Kamala Harris’ ancestors also owned slaves. So where is all of the classic liberal outrage over these folks having this sort of bloodline? Surely they would have no problem striking at these kind…

Trump Administration Set To Carry Out Major Crackdown On Asylum Abuse

This is going to make liberals absolutely furious.

Published

on

The Trump administration has announced some major changes in the country’s current asylum policies that will inevitably lead to a sizable reduction in the number of individuals that are eligible for asylum who are trying to enter the country at the southern border. If you listen closely, you can hear the left already throwing a total fit over this, ready to compare the president to a whole plethora of deplorable fascist world leaders throughout history. via Daily Wire: “The new rule, published in the Federal Register, would require most migrants entering through America’s southern border to first seek asylum in one of the countries they traversed – whether in Mexico, in Central America, or elsewhere on their journey,” Fox News reported. In a statement, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) highlighted three limited exceptions: (1) an alien who demonstrates that he or she applied for protection from persecution or torture in at least one of the countries through which the alien transited en route to the United States, and the alien received a final judgment denying the alien protection in such country; (2) an alien who demonstrates that he or she satisfies the definition of “victim of a severe form of trafficking in persons” provided in 8 C.F.R. § 214.11; or, (3) an alien who has transited en route to the United States through only a country or countries that were not parties to the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees, the 1967 Protocol, or the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment. The statement went on to detail that a very small minority of these individuals actually receive asylum, however, a large number of requests burdens the system and undermines its humanitarian purposes. The statement also notes the large number of requests…
