“Not racist” Roseanne just accused Michelle Obama of a sickening conspiracy on Twitter, then deleted it

Disgraced television actress Roseanne Barr made it clear to the world this week that she has no regrets over the loss of her television show and her firing by ABC.

On the contrary, she has gone on the attack, threatening to fight her firing while doubling down on preposterous conspiracy theories that she implies are to blame for her whole ordeal.

Refusing to take responsibility for her appalling comments comparing former Obama advisor Valerie Jarett to an “ape,” Barr has decided to take instead take a page out of the Trump playbook – deny everything, claim victimhood, and fight back:

The first phase of “fighting back” appears to be retweeting a slew of bizarre and absurd conspiracy theories, the worst of which was the accusation that somehow former First Lady Michelle Obama was behind her firing.

FOX News reported that she used her Twitter account to retweet an unsourced claim by one “Josh Cornett” that Michelle had called ABC and had demanded her firing, making Roseanne a victim of the Obama-Clinton-Soros political correctness conspiracy, or something along those lines.

The retweet is no longer on her page, meaning she may have thought better of it – which is curious, considering the stuff she didn’t choose to delete.

That was only the tip of the iceberg, as Barr then went full Pizzagate and began retweeting accusations against Disney and ABC for hiring pedophiles and accusing Clinton aide Huma Abedin of trafficking child sex slaves from Haiti, presumably for their “spirit cooking” sessions at Comet Ping Pong.

It’s clear that Roseanne Barr has some serious issues beyond just her racism and is in dire need of a reality check. To accuse the Obamas of being behind some kind of preposterous conspiracy to excuse your racist remarks – or Russian collusion – is Trumpism 101, and we cannot allow her to get away with this disrespect towards one of our nation’s finest First Ladies.
