Roseanne Barr Attempts To Explain Racist Valerie Jarrett Tweet In Bizarre YouTube Video

Roseanne Barr is speaking out yet again regarding her now-infamous racist tweet toward Valerie Jarrett, a former advisor to President Barack Obama.

In a video posted to her YouTube channel on Thursday, July 19, 2018, Barr appears unhinged as she attempts to talk about the tweet that caused the Roseanne reboot to be canceled. The clip, which is a little over a minute long, shows Barr speaking to someone off camera, and, as that person tries to steer the conversation toward some hypothetical scenario involving the president of the United States, Barr grows agitated.

"I'm trying to talk about Iran! I'm trying to talk about Valerie Jarrett wrote the Iran deal!" she shouts. Shaking her head and sighing, she continues, "That's what my tweet was about!"

Then Barr screams, "I thought the b***h was white! Godd****t! I thought the b***h was white! F**k!"

According to TMZ, the video is just the first of many. The gossip rag reports that Barr has been in her son Jake Pentland's Full Moon & High Tide studio recording interviews with friends and family. The interviews will then reportedly be shared on Barr's YouTube page, so no networks can censor her. At the time of this writing, Barr's reported show has neither an official name nor a release date.

As Nicki Swift previously reported, the Roseanne reboot was canceled in late May 2018, after Barr likened Jarrett to a child of the Muslim brotherhood and the Planet of the Apes in response to a claim that Jarrett had help Obama spy on French presidential candidates. Specifically, Barr tweeted, "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj."

After facing quick backlash, Barr deleted the tweet and apologized. She later tried to explain her post, telling her followers that it was the result of late night tweeting while on Ambien. She also claimed to have had no idea that Jarrett was black, as reported by People magazine. "I thought she was Saudi," she tweeted, before posting, "I honestly thought she was Jewish and Persian — Ignorant of me for sure, but... I did."

She added, "I mistakenly thought she was white."
