  • Ambien Maker Sanofi to Roseanne Barr: No, Our Sleeping Pill Doesn't Cause Racism

President Donald Trump escalated a feud with ABC on Thursday in the wake of the cancellation of "Roseanne," tweeting at the chief executive of ABC's parent company. Just before he gets in the auto, however, John gives his take on the recent controversy.

Trump might have been referring to anti-Trump comments by Keith Olbermann, who recently returned to Disney-owned ESPN; late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel's mocking of Melania Trump's accent; or "The View's" Joy Behar calling Vice President Mike Pence mentally ill because of his faith.

Barr herself suggested on Twitter lately that she may try to take some action.

Despite saying she blames herself and a couple of apologies, Roseanne Barr still seems to be pointing the finger at others when it comes to the cancelation of her sitcom.

And while Barr has lashed out at some of her fellow co-stars who have spoken out about her tweets, she expressed sorrow that Roseanne's cancelation meant Goodman and co-star Laurie Metcalf were out of work.

He said he doesn't know anything about Barr's tweets, including one that featured a racial slur against Valerie Jarrett, a former aide to President Obama.

The remaining cast has been mostly silent since releasing initial statements blasting Barr for her offensive tweets. "Forgive me-my joke was in bad taste".

To me, her show did a disservice to hard-working blue-collar workers, stereotyping them as racist and narrow minded.

On his podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, Joe Rogan shared a similar sentiment on Wednesday, saying Barr had recently confided in him that the show was putting her under major stress, saying, "I need to adjust my meds, I'm not thinking straight".

"It's terrific, I tell you, I love what he did", Trump then tells Moore of his film.

"Roseanne" earned an estimated $45 million in advertising revenue for ABC through its nine episodes that started airing in March, according to Kantar Media. Sykes had responded to Barr's invective by announcing via Twitter that she wouldn't return to the show.

In the past, the Republican president has cited the program's popularity as evidence that his supporters, who include Barr, want shows that speak to their concerns.

Barr had earlier apologized to members of the cast and crew, but the tweet was deleted.

"I wasn't going to get an Emmy anyway", Goodman said.

Jarrett's name came up in response to Twitter commentary that raised her name in relation to an Obama conspiracy theory.

In a video obtained by Entertainment Tonight, the 65-year-old actor spoke out for the first time since Roseanne's cancellation, insisting he'd rather stay quiet.
