Donald Trump tweets, Ambien rejects star's blame claim

Drugmaker to Roseanne Barr: ‘Racism is not a known side effect’ of Ambien

The controversial comedian got the show cancelled on May 29 after making a racist joke on Twitter referring to former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett as a mix between the "Muslim Brotherhood" and "Planet of the Apes". Jarrett, who is black, was born in Iran to American parents.

"I honestly thought she was Jewish and Persian", she said.

Barr went on to suggest that Soros meant to "overthrow [the] us constitutional republic by buying/backing candidates 4 local district attorney races who will ignore USA law & favor "feelings" instead-and call everyone who is alarmed by that 'racist.'" When a correspondent made a reference to Valerie Jarrett helping to "hide a lot" during the Obama administration, Barr chimed in with her fateful comment, which she subsequently blamed on the sleeping drug Ambien. "It was 2 in the morning and I was ambien tweeting-it was memorial day too-i went 2 far & do not want it defended-it was egregious Indefensible".

Ross' defenders said the reporter, who was known for his in-depth investigative reporting, made an honest mistake.

Twitter users immediately pounced on Barr's claim that her sleeping pill led her to write the offensive tweet. In 2012, Kerry Kennedy, Sen. Consumers may even experience extreme incidents like "sleep-driving" and hallucinations. Ambien also played a role in the downfall of golf star Tiger Woods after police found him asleep in his vehicle in the middle of the highway after ingesting the drug.

Meanwhile, Barr insisted she is not racist. These included comments made by ABC's "The View" host Joy Behar about Christians and comedian Kathy Griffin's comments on the same television program as well as Disney-owned ESPN's former host Jemele Hill and ESPN's recent hiring of television personality Keith Olbermann.

Trump weighed in on the Roseanne Barr controversy for the first time Wednesday with a complaint that he never got an apology from ABC for the 'for the disgusting statements made and said about me on ABC'. Not surprised and I wouldn't doubt it being very true, ' another tweet said.

"This is a double standard that the president is speaking about", Mrs Sanders concluded, "no one is defending her [Barr's] comments, they're inappropriate". For her part, Jarrett said during an MSNBC town hall later that day that she hopes this entire episode will be "a teaching moment".

Barr's post-firing tweets included an apology to those who lost their jobs because of her words, but her choice of retweets struck a defiant tone.

However, he implied that Barr wanted the show to end.

Arnold said he and the President met at a dinner party in 2005 with his new wife Shelby Roos.

The show scored huge ratings and had been renewed for an 11th season following largely positive reviews - including from the president.
