False narrative. It was never a joke in poor taste. It was a racist insult and flat out vicious [View all]

Barr may be a comedian but not everything she says is automatically a joke. There was nothing funny in what she tweeted about Valerie Jarrett, just like there was nothing funny in what she tweeted about George Soros. Those comments were never intended as jokes. One was a bigoted put down, the other was a slanderous smear. Barr was venting her poisoned mind, that's all. People make jokes in poor taste, from both the Left and Right. People like Dennis Miller and Kathy Griffin will always sometimes cross lines. And then there are times when they each are simply speaking their minds, for good or ill. Yes Rosanne Barr sometimes makes jokes that are in poor taste. Not yesterday. That was the real Rosanne Barr speaking, and it wasn't comedy.
