When asked what the president's reaction was to Barr's tweets, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said the president has been "focused" on North Korea, trade and the economy. Have you been on Ambien for the past 15, 20 years?

She zig-zagged between apologizing for her foul Twitter behavior and retweeting memes that made her apology sound insincere.

The racially charged tweets and the sitcom's cancellation quickly made headlines and made the rounds on social media, with everyone form Disney CEO Bob Iger to President Donald Trump weighing in on the news.

In other tweets, Barr urged fans to not defend her actions, and that losing her show is "0 compared 2 being labelled a racist over one tweet". On Monday, Barr regurgitated a rumor that Clinton had married a nephew of Soros - a rumor that was popularized by actor and Trump supporter Scott Baio shortly before the 2016 presidential election.

At one point she suggests that it was Wanda Sykes tweet that tipped the scales in ABC's decision to cancel "Roseanne". She called it "abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values". "Roseanne feels misunderstood and also feels like she did not mean the comments maliciously", a source told us.

The star of the self-titled show was taken to task by celebrities and politicians who said there was no excuse for her blatant racism.

"I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. Our government is only going to be as good as we make it be".

The makers of Ambien want no part in Roseanne Barr's career implosion. She explained that it was 2am when she wrote the tweet, "and I was ambien tweeting". "It represented the work of hundreds of talented people".

Barr replied early Wednesday morning, writing, "I created the platform for that inclusivity and you know it.ME".

When a fan later tweeted at Barr, "We are defending your free speech and ours", Barr responded, "Thank u, but, it's over".

Barr also continued to tweet about George Soros, a liberal donor who has been painted as the villain in many right-wing conspiracy theories. Roseanne also accused billionaire George Soros, who's Jewish, of being a Nazi collaborator and attacked Chelsea Clinton. Clinton herself corrected Barr online.
