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.
