Comedian Roseanne Barr raised eyebrows this week when she suddenly slammed former presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, saying the doomed nominee neglected American workers and was only concerned with “Syrian airspace,” adding the country was “lucky” Donald Trump went on to win the White House.
In a recently published clip promoting her upcoming sitcom, the iconic comic unloaded on the former Secretary of State, saying “maybe” Americans cared about “Syrian airspace” but she certainly didn’t.
“He talked about jobs. That’s what you need to do if you want working people to vote for you. Not Syrian airspace,” Barr said. “I don’t think Hillary talked about jobs much. She was always just talking about Syrian airspace. Do you think people in America care? Maybe they do, I didn’t, though.”
“It’s great for comedy. We’re lucky to have him as a President, it’s great for comedy,” she added.

GOWDY UNLEASHED: Rep. Gowdy SLAMS FBI over ANTI-TRUMP Conspiracy
GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy unloaded on the FBI and the Department of Justice this week over the agency’s missing text messages, slamming the bureau for “losing” five month’s worth of anti-Trump communications and saying he has seen stunning “texts about deleting texts.”
The Republican congressman was speaking with Fox News when he called-out the FBI after the bureau admitted it was unable to retrieve months and months of texts between senior agent Peter Strzok and DOJ lawyer Lisa Page.
“Lay aside this glaring five-month gap in texts that the world’s premier agency somehow missed, lay that aside,” said Gowdy. “What Johnny and I saw today was a text about not keeping texts. We saw more manifest bias against President Trump all the way through the election into the transition.”
“I saw an interesting text that Director Comey was going to update the President of the United States about an investigation. I don’t know if that was the Hillary investigation […] I find it interesting the head of the FBI was going to update the President, who at that point would have been President Obama,” he added.

HALEY UNLEASHED: Nikki Haley VOWS to ‘TAKE NAMES’ During Anti-Trump UN Vote
US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley issued a stark warning to those countries poised to vote against President Trump’s recent decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel; telling world leaders America will remember those who oppose the historic move.
The looming showdown is expected Thursday afternoon, when the United Nations prepares to vote against Trump’s announcement on Jerusalem. The proposed resolution “affirms that any decisions and actions which purport to have altered the character, status or demographic composition of the holy city of Jerusalem have no legal effect, are null and void and must be rescinded.”
Haley pushed back against the resolution, warning those countries that vote against the United States that she will be “taking names.”
“We’re always asked to do more & give more,” Haley wrote on Twitter. “So, when we make a decision, at the will of the American ppl [people], abt [about] where to locate OUR embassy, we don’t expect those we’ve helped to target us. On Thurs there’ll be a vote criticizing our choice. The US will be taking names.”
President Trump made history earlier this month when he announced his decision to relocate the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem; upending decades of empty promises and drastically altering the Middle East peace process.
