Seriously? OK, I am not a fan of Roseanne, and have not watched the new show. I never much liked the original rendition. I always thought she was crass, obnoxious, and too mouthy. Her politics were often too left, and I assume they still are, given that her show still pushes causes that are deeply progressive.
Yet, she did one thing she cannot do: attack a member of the protected class. Not even a black woman was who she attacked, but the Great One’s most trusted advisor: Valerie Jarrett.
Now, despite the liberal themes of Rosanne Part 2, the family supports Trump, apparently. This was enough for it to find a chorus of hate. It seems like the show has been hanging on because people were watching it, not because ABC was behind it.
But now, she crossed a line, and she’s gone.
That would be fair if not for the treatment those on the right get. A comedienne once held a severed head of the present president and she had to be cajoled to be fired… What gives?
We all know what gives… But some just can’t say it.
