On Wednesday, NBC News White House correspondent Kelly O’Donnell attempted to tie the Roseanne Barr debacle to President Trump, shooting out a few questions in regard to his response to the whole situation, but Press Secretary Sarah Sanders wasn’t having any of that nonsense.
Earlier this week, Barr tweeted out a vicious attack on former White House adviser Valerie Jarrett, one that was racially charged, and almost immediately her career in the entertainment industry imploded.
Roseanne’s show was canceled, her agency dropped her as a client, and reruns of the show’s earlier seasons were dumped by major networks as a result of her comment.
Anyway, here’s what Sanders had to say about O’Donnell’s attempt to somehow tie this whole mess to the president.
Do you think Cubans are fighting for healthcare or freedom from Communism? (1)
As reported by Newsbusters, O’Donnell asked if the president had been in contact with Barr and about his reaction to the cancellation on Twitter.
“Has the President spoken to Roseanne Barr, as we know has been a long-time friend of his?” she asked. “And why did he choose to address the ABC policy instead of the underlying issue of concerns about a racist comment that she tweeted out?”
Sanders responded, “He’s simply pointing out the bias. The President is pointing to the hypocrisy in the media, saying that the most horrible thing about this president and nobody addresses it.”
She continued, “Where was Bob Iger’s apology to the White House staff for Jemele Hill calling the president and anyone associated had him a white supremacist? To Christians around the world for Joy Behar calling Christianity a mental illness? Where was the apology for Kathy Griffin going on a profane rant against the President on ‘The View’ after a photo showed her holding president Trump’s decapitated head?”
Sanders then went on to note the hypocrisy of ESPN hiring Keith Olbermann after calling the president a Nazi and launching attacks against the Trump family, noting there is an obvious double standard the media refuses to address.
Sanders is absolutely right about the bias that’s running rampant through the media. There’s no doubt at all that Roseanne’s comments were disgusting and deplorable in every sense of the word. ABC, as a network, made the right call to cancel the show, demonstrating that while free speech exists, careless and foolish talk still comes with consequences.
The problem, however, is the inconsistency. Black artists and entertainers who make fun of whites should be treated the exact same way as Roseanne. This is living out a principle fairly, applying it to all people, as it should be.
If the mainstream media were putting that sort of deal into practice, no one would be raising much of a stink about what happened to Roseanne.

CNN Anchor Goes on Insulting Rant Against the Unvaccinated
Oh, spare us the drama, Chris.
When it comes to the heated and prolonged debate that this nation has been having on the subject of vaccines, it is just about impossible to say something that won’t offend somebody. This is the Coke versus Pepsi of the 2020’s; the Yankees/Red Sox of medicine. There is no grey area, and there is no middle ground. And, if you had any doubt about what side of the argument CNN anchors Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo were on, you needn’t worry any longer. Anchor Don Lemon said, “I still am flummoxed by the misinformation over the vaccine, people refusing to get vaccinated and also refusing to wear masks. Every day seems like it gets worse. And I don’t mean that. I mean the people who are dying, who are actually coming down with it, especially the children… I mean, just heartbreaking.” And then came the insults… Cuomo said, “People seen with significant cases and hospitalizations are getting younger. Part of the metric here is ignorance, but part of it is also arrogance, this misplaced sense of righteous indignation, and resistance that they believe is a false manifestation of freedom. This is not an issue of freedom. Of course, you have freedom to make choices about your own body. Let’s put to the side the irony that so many of these people don’t want to afford that freedom to women. But what we’re saying is, does it mean it’s the right choice? And these suggestions, I think the vaccine is safe, but you have the freedom to take it, but I don’t know that the science lines up, but I don’t know why they’re changing the guidance. These suggestions feel resistance. I think it’s a mistake.” Vaccine hesitancy is believed to account for a majority of the unvaccinated population in America today.
Longrunning Music Festival to Require Vaccines and COVID Tests This Summer
The entire American social order could be shuffled as these sorts of mandates spread.
Whether or not the medical experts or the liberal left are ready to admit it, the fact of the matter is this: Only about half of this nation is going to willingly receive a COVID-19 vaccination at this time. They have their reasons for abstaining. Some are simply waiting for the FDA to fully authorize the inoculation, as opposed to releasing it with “emergency use authorization”, as is the case currently. Others are very cognizant of their bodily sovereignty, and they believe that refusing to partake at this time helps to keep a potentially overzealous government from getting any ideas. And, of course, there are those whose ideas are a little wilder, who tell tales of implanted microchips and the mark of the beast. Seeing as the government hasn’t yet had the stomach for mandating the vaccines themselves, there are a number of private companies who are taking matters into their own hands. This includes one of the most popular music festivals in the United States. The hordes of people expected to descend on Chicago’s Grant Park for the Lollapalooza music festival this week will be required to show proof that they’ve been vaccinated for COVID-19 or tested negative for the disease within the last three days. The four-day festival starts Thursday and is expected to be back at full capacity, with roughly 100,000 daily attendees. After missing last summer because of the threat of the coronavirus, it will easily be Chicago’s largest gathering since the pandemic started, and one of the country’s. The setup will be strict. This year’s festival will look very different than in the past. To gain entry, attendees will have to present their vaccination cards or a printed copy of a negative COVID-19 test that is no more than 72 hours old. That means that anyone with a…
