Surprising no one, some Fox News anchors have already swooped in to defend Roseanne Barr after a racist Twitter rant led to the cancelation of her shitty ABC reboot that the world or at least I did not ask for.
Barr, who also made a nut show no one watched, called former Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett an “ape” in a since-deleted tweet. Harris Faulkner of Fox News’s Outnumbered Overtime called the insult “a miscalculated joke” and said that this whole thing is a matter of “free speech.” Faulkner’s guest, GOP strategist Noelle Nikpour, agreed, calling Roseanne’s humor “a little raunchy, a little rough” with all the scandalized reticence of a PTA mom who just saw a Rice Krispie treat that kinda looks like a boob. A little raunchy, a little rough. A little raunchy, a little rough. These words will haunt me to the unmarked ditch for bad at racing horse corpses I shall someday call a grave.
