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.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
