WTH That Roseanne Barr Thing???

I don't care about this sort of pop culture crap...but I saw the headlines everywhere, and I'm not wild about Valerie Jarrett, and I thought LOL here comes some more manufactured PC outrage via I looked it up and...WTF???????????
   Seriously what the hell...who writes things like that? I mean...even ignoring more important questions and focusing just on prudential is it that someone could think they were going to get away with saying something like that? And on this extremely public platform? How could anyone not understand that they are--rightly, of course...but I'm not even focusing on that part--going to get destroyed? Does Barr have some kind of mental problem? (I don't really know much of anything about her, honestly, beyond that weird thing with the national anthem that one time.) It's like deciding to push a button to make everybody hate you. Like randomly slapping a little kid on national tv or something. This really kinda gives me a headache it makes so little sense. Man, people are nuts.

She has some issues. But one can have psychological issues and still be an asshole.

I'm relieved to see that there's enough critical thinking left that some things are beyond the pale. I have wondered at times...on certain topics...

I mean, we did just have a guy get elected to be President after becoming famous for questioning Obama's citizenship, refusing to renounce David Duke's endorsement, and receiving a endorsement during an actual white supremacist press conference. And then a comedian gets a show that from what I understand was based in large part upon her and the main characters' support for that candidate.

I'm not saying Barr supported Trump for those reasons, and I'm not saying that everyone who supports Trump necessarily believes those were the right things for Trump to do, but I can certainly understand how someone might think that in a post-Trump world that they could get away with calling a specific black person an "ape."

Though I'll confess that it blows my mind a bit, too. I actually keep having these moments of, "Is there some other possible thing she could have meant with the 'Planet of the Apes' comment?"

Also, I hope you're doing well, Winston.
