When ABC execs greenlit the “Roseanne” reboot, they did so knowing full well that Roseanne is a ticking time bomb and it was only a matter of time before she said something awful. This week, she did just that when she referred to Valerie Jarrett as the lovechild of the Muslim Brotherhood and the Planet of the Apes. Not only did she lose her show, but she’s essentially cemented her status as a Hollywood pariah. The same celebrities who indulged her unhinged ravings when conservatives and conservative causes were her targets suddenly want nothing to do with her because she went after Valerie Jarrett.
And you know what? The Roseanne mess says even more about Hollywood than it does about her:
ABC was justified in firing Roseanne. I also believe they have no moral high ground for hiring that nutter in the first place. I also think it's funny that Hollywood is more comfortable with rapists than bigots. Confirms that, for the left, thought crime is the biggest sin.

Bingo. The Hollywood Left will tolerate or bury sexual predation, but vile words directed at liberals? That’s a bridge too far.
And that’s nothing if not utterly depressing.
