Shocking developments in the Roseanne Barr controversy are coming to light as ABC insiders reveal that it was Michelle Obama who made sure Barr was fired. It seems sneaky Michelle was miffed at Roseanne long before the infamous Valerie Jarrett tweet. In fact, Michelle was burning up her cell, calling her good friend, ABC boss Channing Dungey, worried about something Roseanne was doing that was affecting the Obamas’ new Netflix series. This will blow your mind
Speculation over ABC’s rash decision to fire Roseanne Barr is mounting as new developments surrounding sneaky Michelle Obama’s role are starting to come to light. This was first dismissed as just a new “conspiracy theory,” but now, with a source close to ABC insiders coming forward, it’s worth examining closer.
ABC was well aware of Roseanne Barr’s outspoken political views long before they hired her to reboot her 1990s megahit “Roseanne.” Yet, with the struggling ABC primetime line-up, the executives for the network were willing to forego the backlash as long as the show made them money and put them back on top.
So, when Barr was quickly fired within hours of a tweet that she posted but quickly deleted about Barack Obama’s live-in handler Valerie Jarrett looking as if the “Muslim Brotherhood & Planet of the Apes had a child,” fans of the show became incensed.
Roseanne apologized profusely. When well-known conservative Twitter user Thomas Wictor tweeted to Roseanne on May 29th, “Did Jarrett die? Did every black American die? My guess is Roseanne didn’t know Jarrett is black. I didn’t,” Barr responded, “I didn’t know.”
Many people since have chimed in saying they too were ignorant of the fact that Jarrett was black. Larry Elder, an African-American conservative talk show host, tweeted, “@therealroseanne said she didn’t know Valerie Jarrett was black, and had assumed she’s white. My white producer told me he thought so, too. Maher and Kimmel compared (white) Trump to an ‘orangutan.’ If Barr honestly thought Jarrett was white, THIS CHANGES THE DEBATE.”
But, this was never about racism to ABC. That’s becoming quite clear as new evidence of Michelle Obama’s sneaky meddling is exposed. Josh Cornett, who has sources inside ABC, tweeted, “BREAKING: According to sources ABC President Channing Dungey had a long conversation via phone with former First Lady Michelle Obama before deciding to cancel the Roseanne show. Michelle Obama was reportedly enraged and insisted an apology was inadequate……developing.”At first, this was dismissed as fake news. But, then, journalist Peter Barry Chowka from the American Thinker delved into the allegations, and what he found out is quite alarming.
Josh Cornett is an investigator who has been picked up by the Drudge Report several times. His insider knowledge into the entertainment industry has been spot on, and he has also been referenced by Donald Trump Jr. So, although Cornett will not disclose his ABC insider sources, as they want to remain anonymous due to the possible backlash to their careers, he has a good track record and is not some lunatic tweeting out this information without already establishing his bona fides or credentials as a reliable source.
No one who was mentioned in Cornett’s tweet has denied what he reported even after the story was picked up by the Daily Mail and Fox News. The cancelation of Roseanne’s show was awfully sudden – within a few hours of her tweet. In its actions, ABC blew off a franchise that may have been worth close to $1 billion in advertising revenue.
Who else in 2018 America has the degree of cachet and influence to insist that that kind of decision be taken? The answer is Michelle Obama.
Roseanne’s status as the number one show in America gave her incredible influence in the culture war, and I bet the Obamas were raging when she trashed their Netflix deal to millions of Americans. Roseanne and her Trump-supporting megahit TV series were too successful for the liberal Hollywood crowd, and once the Obamas put the kibosh on Roseanne, no apology would ever suffice. She had to be destroyed.
