    One of Spanky's best representatives has let her mouth overload her ass, resulting in the cancelation of the controversial remake. At least some companies have kept their integrity intact through this disastrous administration.

      Even if I agree with Barr ( ahead of her time) Making protest like calling Israel the Zionist/Nazi State. You cannot accept to be hired or feed by the hand that owns America.

      I don't protest sciencteogy because I need a lawyer. I don't protest Zionist much because I need a job.

      Interesting though how such talk from the left didn't get Kathy Griffin fired because............" well she's a comedian " ?

        Fired from what?  Roseanne asked for it by her racists comments. I didn't realize Kathy made any racist or sexist comments.

        Are you comparing her to Roseanne?

          You know , what Roseanne did is horrible ,  I'll not  defend her ;     But because  Griffin merely dissed Trump  by holding a bloody head that was just fine? 
          Two sides to the coin huh ?

          Both Barr and Kathy and not classy comedians, yet I give them high marks for brave honesty.

          Barr said...  muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.”

          I don't get it, then Barr apologies a half hour later, not worth destroying a 9 billion investment on a comedy show. Where Trump in action is facist and racist to millions of people everyday.

          Trump placed a lawsuit against Bill Maher seeking $5 million.  If Trump could prove he was not the son of an orangutan.

          No wonder Trump is the world Champion of Lawsuits.

            I like the way you worded that: racist to millions of people.  Not necessarily in truth and fact, but in the perception of people too gullible to look beyond the hatred they are being fed.

              Nothing so beautifully magical about Trumps action of Fascism. Isn't that how Hitler gained control? Don't forget that certain groups were blamed for ALL the national problems in Germany back then, like the Jews, Gypsies, the mentally ill and physically handicapped, and atheist. All while "wrapping himself in the flag and holding a bible.

              Today, Trump is blaming ALL national problems on Latinos, Muslims and other minority groups. Where's the difference, other than the groups being discriminated against?
              Not one other race other than whites voted for him. He was selected President and America people lost by a false democracy by 3 million votes.

              Since I don't understand hate, I love to love Trump out of the majority hair. Just because he lied to them hugely.

                Try reading a history book Castle ,  One of the most important major discoveries you'll find out is that America is a constitutional republic and it never was a democracy .   Popular vote ?  Who cares about popular voting but at the  town meeting and state levels .   Ever heard the term "Nation States " ?  Why do we constantly have to re-educate so many on the left about our constitution ?

                Want to see Fascism ?   Look at Obama who executive ordered the AHCA .
                The Fast and furious Arms for Mexican cartels , IRS scandal against the Tea Party ,  Ignored US  constitutional law at the border ,  assumed the raw cash Iran deal ....................There was your " Hitler".

        Do you mean like this?

        CNN ended its deal with Kathy Griffin after she caused outrage over a video clip she posted showing her holding a fake decapitated head made to look like President Donald Trump.

        The news network announced the decision in a tweet from its Communications Department.

        "CNN has terminated our agreement with Kathy Griffin to appear on our New Year's Eve program," the tweet reads.

        Griffin has hosted CNN's New Year's Eve coverage with network anchor Anderson Cooper since 2007.

        And this?

        Several venues have canceled shows featuring comic Kathy Griffin in the wake of her presidential beheading controversy.

        In addition to being fired from CNN and dropped as spokeswoman for footstool maker Squatty Potty, the two-time Emmy- and Grammy-winning comedian has had five gigs in her Celebrity Run-Ins Tour axed following her inflammatory Tyler Shields pictorial that showcased her holding up a bloody likeness of President Trump's decapitated head.

        No connection RJ? That's not quite accurate: It appeasr as if they are connected at the hip: Roseanne and Donny Boy are cut from the same despicable racist cloth and have actually followed the same 'ratings trend': Rosanne's reboot went from about 18 million Trump fan viewers down to about 13 million in a very short period of time, just like Donny's ratings: Maybe they got bored with Roseanne just like Donny:

              I clearly stated that the post was for an individual - no hard feelings.  You may believe the two entities are connected but most people don’t.  Would you also say that all the hate on late night TV is associated with Obama?  How about Joy Behar?  How about Kathy Griffin, who does she speak for?  I expect you to try and defend those in your own way, and when you do, what does that say?  A standard has to be applied equally across both sides of the spectrum.  The supporters of a political leader don’t speak for that leader, they speak for themselves.

Yup, Mr. Trump is and did, and disgraceful Rosanne being a lost fan of his instead of obstructing his evil acts, makes them a creation of the very same evil mold:

                  You’ve just proven my point - you’re one dimensional- there’s plenty of cherry-picked arguements available (just ask the media) but at the end of the day it’s just a double standard.  Thanks for demonstrating it.  Try taking emotion out of your narrative and examine who is killing American health care - it’s neither Party, it’s the drug companies and insurance folks.  Open your eyes to the bigger picture and stay out of the weeds.

                    Not sure how I've proved it but okay: Actually Spanky Trump and his republican accomplices in congress are trying desperately to sabotage healthcare in America by cutting funding for children's coverage, subsidies etc, not drug companies as you claim and yes, if calling a racist a racist like Rosie Barr and her disgusting pal Spanky Trump is considered by you to be one dimensional then so be it, I'll stick to the facts and truth because no matter how many 'dimensions' anyone tries to apply to these two national disgraces, they can never disguise it::

      Randy, a lot of these networks are not as outraged as we would think when things like this happen. Rosanne is no longer a cash cow for the network, she isjust a cow. I think that her format has lost its appeal and her days were numbered anyway, this incident just made it easier for ABC to give her  the boot.

      I could be wrong, ratings data seems to say something else. I just don't remember network executives not trying to blow over things like this when they clearly cannot afford to lose.

    I agree with RJ Schwartz. Simply because the most irrational and foolish voices on the left may be (in your opinion) speaking for Pelosi, Hillary or their ilk; to assume Rosanne represents Trump is just another of your ill guided opinions.
