CHATTER AWAY: Overnight Open Thread

The New York Daily News reports:

Roseanne Barr now insists her offensive tweet about Valerie Jarrett had nothing to do with race, and was instead her way of speaking out against anti-Semitism.

The actress posted a puzzling new explanation Wednesday for her tweet calling Jarrett, who is black, the baby of “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes,” which led to the cancellation of her sitcom “Roseanne” more than two weeks ago.

“Rod Serling wrote Planet of The Apes. It was about anti-semitism,” Barr wrote on Twitter. “That is what my tweet referred to – the anti semitism of the Iran deal. Low IQ ppl can think whatever they want.”

Needless to say, she’s completely wrong.
