Iconic comedian Roseanne Barr stopped by ‘Hannity’ Thursday night; opening up about the infamous tweet that cost the comic her hit series and saying her comments were in response to Obama’s Iranian nuclear agreement.
Barr shed new light on the motivations behind her harsh critique of former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett, adding she “will always defend Israel” and her tweet was simply “asking for accountability” from the author of the botched deal.
“You sent this tweet out, ‘Muslim brotherhood and Planet of the Apes,’ you’re talking about Valerie Jarrett. What were you thinking when you said that?” asked Sean.
“That is a political tweet […] I will always defend Israel. I’m a Jew and I have family that lives there. So that’s a tweet asking for accountability from the previous administration about the Iran deal which Valerie Jarrett is the author of. That’s what was in my head,” said Barr.

ROSEANNE BARRED: ABC Cancels ‘Roseanne’ Over ‘Repugnant’ Tweets
Hit sitcom ‘Roseanne’ was abruptly canceled by ABC Tuesday just hours after the iconic comedian posted “racist” and “abhorrent” tweets about Chelsea Clinton and former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett; with network executives saying the comments were “inconsistent” with their values.
“Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” said ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey.
The news comes just hours after the comic lashed out at George Soros, Chelsea Clinton, Valerie Jarrett, and made a series of comments regarding conspiracy theories surrounding the CIA and other agencies.
Barr apologized to the senior Obama official earlier Tuesday, saying “I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me — my joke was in bad taste.”
“Roseanne’s recent comments about Valerie Jarrett, and so much more, are abhorrent and do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show. I am disappointed in her actions to say the least,” said Barr’s co-star Sara Gilbert.
