Skip to comments.Roseanne Barr should blame Trump most of all | Eugene Robinson

President Donald Trump wants to create a safe public space for ugly, unvarnished, unambiguous racism, which he knows he can exploit for political advantage. This cynical and destructive ploy must not be allowed to succeed.
But since Tuesday, there has been not a word of censure for Barr's vile "joke" portraying Valerie Jarrett, a top adviser to President Barack Obama, as the result if "muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby."
Disney pulled the plug on 'Roseanne.' It's on the rest of us to pull the plug on racism Disney pulled the plug on 'Roseanne.' It's on the rest of us to pull the plug on racism
What Roseanne Barr said wasn't funny. It wasn't a joke. And it wasn't the first time, either.
Trump has had nothing to say, pro or con, about ABC's decision to cancel Barr's revived sitcom. Rather, he has twice complained that while Robert Iger, chairman of ABC's corporate parent, Disney, promptly called Jarrett to apologize, Iger has never called Trump with an apology for things said about him by others associated with ABC. "You and ABC have offended millions of people, and they demand a response. . . . Double Standard!" Trump said Thursday in a tweet to Iger.
Donald J. Trump ✔ @realDonaldTrump Iger, where is my call of apology? You and ABC have offended millions of people, and they demand a response. How is Brian Ross doing? He tanked the market with an ABC lie, yet no apology. Double Standard!

You can see Trump's narcissism at work there, but also his calculation.

What a doofus.
Eugene Robinson...Dumb, dumber and dumber....keep the home fires burning low life Democrat scum & vermin....traitors & turn coats “ALL”. Obama hides in his fenced fortress and Clinton raves like the insane lunatic she has become.
Where dat Massive Democrat, “Blue Wave”?....just weak trickles and ripples!!!
Every person is accountable for THEIR words and actions.
A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart. What you say flows from what is in your heart.
But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken.
Yes, he's made it easier for black people to find jobs. Clearly it's all part of his Final Racial Solution.
Dear Eugene “loser” Robinson
1) Planet of the Apes is a science fiction movie. By definition, not real.
2) The sci fi apes were the dominent race.
3) The actors, yes actors, wore chessy costumes.
4) Darwin claims everyone evolved from apes.
5) Yes ValJar does look like the mask created for the actress. Maybe someone saw her parents and was inspired.
Eugene is one of the biggest, black, racists in the country. I stopped taking our local paper because they carry his column.
You forgot to add Notorious Negro Racist to his description
We should also be examining the production team:
Miles Kahn Executive Producer for Full Frontal with Samantha Bee on TBS.
The guy has very few thoughts is his head and none of them are original.
Just when you think the lunatic left can’t sink any lower into their TDS abyss, along comes Eugene Robinson to prove how wrong you were.
everyone should pull the plug on Robinson, I’ve read a lot of racist stuff that he has written.
What kind of thought process does one engage in to come to that conclusion?
The phrase stuck on stupid seems utterly inadequate to describe virtually any column written by this fool.
That smarmy smiles says it all. “I’m going to lie, cheat and steal, and you crackers can’t do jack about it”
I still haven’t been able to find the racism in Roseanne’s tweet.
However the hate aimed at her and her supporters reeks of racism projected by the haters.
Sit on it, Eugene.
Eugene Robinson: A true liberal imbecile.
If that were true Trump would actively support your lunatic ravings. He does not.
