"Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have made a decision to cancel her show", Dungey said.

Roseanne Barr says the sleeping pill Ambien played a role in the racist tweet she sent about Valerie Jarrett, a former senior adviser in the Obama White House, which led ABC to cancel her TV show. It's unclear what "statements" Trump is referencing in the tweet, but it likely relates to ABC News' coverage of his presidency.

"Maybe I just didn't get the call?" he added in a fit of sarcasm.

"Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that "ABC does not tolerate comments like those" made by Roseanne Barr", Trump said.

Barr later tweeted that she has had odd experiences while taking the drug late at night.

In addition to referring to the bombings as a false flag terror attack, Barr wrote in her post that the Obama White House had initiated "direct attacks against the 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th amendments to the Constitution", and that Obamacare had "Nazi origins" that "chicken s*** Senators" wouldn't mention because they feared losing their jobs.

For the second time this postseason, the Cleveland Cavaliers will experience the two greatest words in sports: Game 7. His numbers in elimination games are staggering and he not only lived up to them, he obliterated them.


Barr apologized for the racist comment and announced she was leaving Twitter, but she later returned with a new string of apologies and defenses, including blaming Ambien.

Although the 65-year-old comedian has apologized to Jarrett over her tweet reading "Muslim brotherhood and planet of the apes had a baby=vj,"she appeared to be much less than conciliatory towards both Michael Fishman and Sara Gilbert".

"First of all, I think we have to turn it into a teaching moment", she said. "Forgive me-my joke was in bad taste". Barr has yet to respond to the show's cancellation.

She went on to add that she was "shocked that swift justice was served so swiftly and so justly". "ME", Barr wrote. "You throw me under the bus. nice!"

Other Barr retweets suggested ABC was wrong to cancel Roseanne and that Barr thought the company had applied a double standard in choosing to dismiss her.

Barr seemed to liken the reaction from her co-stars and those a supporter called "her underlings" to the way Trump complains about members of his administration being "disloyal".
