LIBERAL HYPOCRISY: Roseanne Fired, But These Radical Leftists Are Still at ABC
The most popular new TV show in America was canceled in a matter of hours Tuesday.
All it took was a few satirical tweets from Roseanne Barr about Barack Obama’s top adviser Valerie Jarrett and executives at ABC and its parent company, Disney, decided to pull the plug on “Roseanne.”
The view inside Disney, according to sources, was that Barr’s criticism of Jarrett marked the third or fourth time when the Trump-supporting comedian’s “unsurvivable” tweets had presented a problem for ABC.
“Enough was enough,” an inside source told CNN.
“Inside ABC, there’s now a sense of pride in how quickly this controversy was contained,” CNN reported.
But what about the treatment of left leaning entertainers who say the most hateful things in the book and get a pass?
Jimmy Kimmel’s show is still on air despite his skit donning blackface, mocking black atheletes.
Comedian Wanda Sykes was a producer on Roseanne and the first to quit following Roseanne’s tweets.
Sykes has called President Trump an orange ape.

The View’s Joy Behar mocked Vice President Mike Pence’s faith and said that the way he prayed to Jesus was a “mental illness.” She didn’t apologize until a month later.
ABC was silent.
ESPN’s Keith Olbermann was just recently given an expanded role at ESPN .

Both ESPN and ABC fall under Disney’s umbrella.
Olbermann has called Omarosa “Trump’s pet,”conservative journalist Michelle Malkin “a big mashed-up piece of meat with lipstick on it,” former Deputy Assistant to President Trump Sebastian Gorka a “Nazi f*ck,” Donald Trump Jr. a “rat-faced git” and President Trump a “white supremacist neo-nazi.”
The last thing ABC stands for is supporting someone who tweets awful things… Now over to Keith Olbermann with sports… pic.twitter.com/bEXprawPtJ

Time to stop the double standard. Joy Reid, Angela Ryes, Andrea Mitchell MSNBC, CNN hosts and contributors routinely insult white people, men and seniors in tweets, on shows and they are still doing it. #Roseanne
