In a recent interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, Roseanne apologized for the Valerie Jarrett fiasco before defending President Trump and his supporters from the malicious media.

Roseanne on Valerie Jarrett Comments:

Well she’s not, but if she’s watching, I’m so sorry that you thought I was racist and that you thought that my tweet was racist because it wasn’t. It was political. And I’m sorry for the misunderstanding that caused my ill-worded tweet.

And — you know, I’m sorry that you feel harmed and hurt. I never meant that and — and for that I apologize. I — I never meant to hurt anybody or say anything negative about an entire race of people, which I think 30 years of my work can attest to.

Roseanne on Trump and Trump voters:

I’m a creative genius and this — this is not a good feeling for an artist to be treated this way. And it’s not a good feeling for a citizen either. And here’s who I am. I’m somebody who cares about civil rights.

I’d reject what you call me. You call me a racist. I don’t accept it. I know who I am and I’m not a racist and the people who voted for Trump, they’re not racist either and Trump isn’t a racist. Sorry but you know we just have a different opinion.

We all want the same thing though. We want people in the inner cities that are living in feces — and I’m talking about my son goes to school in San Francisco, I go up there. I just don’t blab and run my mouth.

I live my beliefs. I want people to know that. I live my beliefs. I try and of course I fail, but I try and I get back up and try again.
