“Roseanne is back!” is probably a phrase liberals don’t want to hear. It wasn’t long ago Roseanne Barr had a hit show revival smashing all sorts of ratings records in its first season.
During the hiatus, the “Roseanne” show was yanked from her after she wrote one late night tweet that made liberals everywhere furious.
But Roseanne Barr just announced a huge comeback much to the dismay of her former Hollywood peers.
It was the tweet at approximately 2 AM Pacific Standard Time, Roseanne Barr tweeted, “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.”
Barr was referring to former top aide to former President Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett, who happens to be African American. The tweet was interpreted as racist in that she compared her to an “ape.”
Nevertheless, she immediately apologized and blamed it on the sleeping drug Ambien and what that does to the mind late at night before it takes full effect.
People didn’t buy it nor did they forgive her. Liberals wanted her job and threatened to boycott ABC, the network that produced “Roseanne.”
Less than an hour later, ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey wrote in a statement, “Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values.”
They did the show without her. Roseanne moved to Israel for a short while.
But now she’s back and ready to take America by storm. Roseanne has officially announced a “Mr. and Mrs. America” standup tour alongside longtime legend comedian Andrew Dice Clay.
Clay, 61, and Barr, 66, have known one another for nearly three decades, and the Brooklyn native doesn’t believe Barr has a mean bone in her body.
The “A Star is Born” actor told Fox News, “She’s a comic because she’s wacky. I’ve known her since we were kids. When people ask about what she said, I say, ‘She’s a comic!’ We gotta stop policing comedians. This is America!”
This is the politically correct culture he’s referring to. But the ironic thing is how liberal comedians can throw shady vitriol towards President Trump and it’s fair game – like when standup comedian Kathy Griffin famously posed with a decapitated head of Trump – but the second a conservative says something controversial, their career is over.
Roseanne surprisingly got a standing ovation from most of the audience during her first live performance since her show was canceled in May at The Laugh Factory in Las Vegas. Clay was the one who pulled her up on stage.
Clay also told Fox News, “I was given a little flak about this, a little bulls—t when I pulled her onstage at the Laugh Factory in Vegas, but we’ve been friends for 30 years. America really needs to lighten up and not worry about the words comedians use because it’s all we have. There’s clean stuff and there’s street stuff. I’m a street guy because I tell it like it is,” Clay said. “I’m living it more now than I have for a really long time. My shows have been longer, my material is fresher. With these shows, I can do as long as I want because it’s one show a night.”
The tour will kick off at the Paramount Theater in Long Island, N.Y., on Sept. 19, followed by the Hard Rock in Atlantic City, N.J., on Sept. 20. Tickets for the Long Island and Atlantic City dates go on sale Friday.
And more dates will soon follow much to the disdain of liberals everywhere.
