Guess who libby Rob Reiner blames for Roseanne's comment?

Yup, you guessed it: Trump.

And if Trump doesn't come out and support ABC's decision he's continuing to stoke the fire of evil.

Rob Reiner is making a bizarre demand from Trump – because of what Roseanne did

Quote:
“ABC has done the right thing. They’ve stood up against racism,” he tweeted. “It is our country’s original sin. But this is 2018 and it has no place in the hearts of decent people.”

“Unfortunately our president has stoked these evil fires,” he added. “If he doesn’t applaud ABC, he will continue to stoke evil.”

I don't really care what stars say on twitter. I do not like trump misusing it. because of the chaos it causes in government, foreign policy etc.

Making a blatantly racist tweet about a black woman is not even remotely the same as insulting Donald Trump by calling him an ape. Period. End of story.

By the by, she has already repeatedly apologized for her tweet. Far too late to come to this kind of defense.

And there ya have it, folks; liberal logic at its best. It's ok to refer to white peeps as primates but not blacks.

Well at least she got back at baseball players for me. I can't count how many times I was embarrassed and grossed out by them adjusting their balls and spitting a wad while getting paid the bucks they do on live tv.
