NBC Reporter Tries Tying Roseanne to Trump, Sarah Sanders Shuts Her Down

She wasn’t having any of that nonsense.

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.

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.

Actor Vince Vaughn is standing his ground and refusing to apologize for a viral meeting he had with President Donald Trump during a college football game that took place earlier this year in January, despite massive backlash he received after the whole thing hit the Internet. Folks, we desperately need more individuals in the entertainment industry like Vince Vaughn who aren’t afraid to speak their minds and won’t back down from doing so when the radical leftists in our nation attempt to silence their voices. via Daily Wire: Rejecting the political Left’s new and fierce adherence to “cancel culture,” Vaughn said he was raised “with the idea that you could have different likes and beliefs and you should respect and defend that in other people, not shout it down.” The “Old School” actor was asked during a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times about the backlash from the Trump interaction and calls from the Left to “cancel” him. “In my career I’ve met a lot of politicians who I’ve always been cordial to; I’ve met Nancy Pelosi and was cordial to her as well,” Vaughn explained. “It was the only time I’ve ever met him. We said hello. He was very personable. I didn’t get into policies.” “I think people are more charged than ever about these things,” the 50-year-old actor went on to say. “But I don’t think most people take that stuff as seriously as the small percentage that’s making noise about it.” “I was raised with the idea that you could have different likes and beliefs and you should respect and defend that in other people, not shout it down,” Vaughn stated. “The people you disagree with the most, you should stand up for their right to do that.” In the past, Vaughn has been an…

Check Out This List Of Celebrities Who Have Promised To Leave America If Trump Wins

Published

on

During the last election cycle in 2016, a number of famous folks in a wide range of industries were so distraught by the idea of a President Donald Trump that they vowed to flee from the country if he took home a victory over Hillary Clinton. Fast forward four years later, and basically, none of those people went anywhere. You know why? Because there is no other country on the planet where they can make the obscene amounts of money they pull down for playing music or starring in films, while also not being taxed into oblivion. It’s all just blustering. You’d think they’d be quiet about that kind of thing this go around, knowing that none of us in the real world believe their childish ranting. But, here we are, in 2020, and celebrities are once again making promises they do not intend to keep. via Daily Wire: Bruce Springsteen The Boss said he’d quit the U.S. and just might move to Australia if Trump wins reelection on Nov. 3. “I would consider that,” he said Oct. 14 during a virtual chat with Australian press, according to The Daily Mail. “I love Australia,” he said. “Every time, we have nothing but good times down there. It’s always a treat to come. Love the people, love the geography, great place for motorcycle trips, it’s close to our hearts.” The Boss also went on to predict without a doubt that President Trump would lose on Tuesday, and that if he’s wrong he’ll “see you on the next plane.” Tommy Lee, drummer for Motley Crue said he finds America “embarrassing” and thinks that folks in Europe mock us and said if Trump wins he’s “out of here.” Good riddance. “Dude, I swear to God if that happens, then I’m coming over to…
