It’s not a huge secret that Roseanne Barr, the star of the ABC hit sitcom, is not a fan of George Soros.
But a glance at Barr’s Twitter feed early Tuesday morning shows she falsely claimed Chelsea Clinton was married to the nephew of every conservative's favorite boogeyman, George Soros, who she accused of trying to “overthrow” the “constitutional republic”, raved about CIA mind control, called Hillary Clinton “a colostomy jug cuz full of shite,” and made a pejorative statement of a former Obama official.
Barr’s frantic Twitter marathon kicked off with two tweets — which have since been deleted — claiming Chelsea Clinton was married to George Soros‘s nephew, a (false) rumor that was initially spread by Scott Baio, according to some leftist sources.
Barr expanded on her Soros theme. We'll just post the thread and let the readers reflect.
ABC has done it's own quick reaction after radical leftist, Wanda Sykes went on strike. Sykes is credited as a producer of the show. When she quit, the network quit, as well.
Kevin Fallon✔@kpfallonABC cancels Roseanne.
ABC President Channing Dungey: "Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show."

Meanwhile, CNN’s Chris Cillizza is a “mouth breather” and Hillary Clinton is “its a colostomy jug cuz full of shite“.
And to top it all off, Barr sent out what appears to be a super racist tweet about former Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, claiming she is the baby of the Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes:
Enjoy this mess, ABC executives.
UPDATE – 9:50 a.m. EST: Barr retweeted this response from Chelsea Clinton and acknowledged that the former first daughter is not married to Soros’ nephew.
Chelsea Clinton✔@ChelseaClintonGood morning Roseanne - my given middle name is Victoria. I imagine George Soros’s nephews are lovely people. I’m just not married to one.

However, she’s still going on a wild tweeting and retweeting spree, providing charming content like this:

Valerie Jarrett...Was Her Mommy a Commie? - David Harris Jr Well, we don’t know if Valerie Jarrett’s mommy was a commie but her father, her father in law and maternal grandfather certainly were according to information from the FBI. Information from the FBI...
By the way, here’s how she’s explaining that tweet about Jarrett being the offspring of the Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes:
4hABC is doing their best to ignore some of these statements from Roseanne and she is making it really hard for them by taking it to next level here. https://twitter.com/therealroseanne/status/1001353729872773121 …
